  1. Not Virginia, but Pines of Rome in Bethesda has had some great ones...either 2 whales or 3 jumbos. Had them 2 weeks ago
  2. I can't even imagine what the restaurants are going through these days, but.... Here is an opportunity for them to pivot and shine (lemonade out of lemons), but the same skill that went into creating a great restaurant experience needs to be transferred into the carry out experience. We have done pick up/ delivery at a couple of places and the experiences have been sub par...packaging and timing issues. We have had meals at Equinox, Sugo, and Mon Ami Gabi. The black plastic containers are ok- unless the food is overstuffed and pasta comes out as a solid chunk. Unlike eating
  3. Took a bit of searching this thread for details on the Pizzeria, lots of food fighting going on above. But went last night and was totally surprised- in a great way. Friday night at 7:15 place was 110% full, lots of energy. Was seated right away, either mgr or owner was super nice explaining how business has been trending up and he was so happy and appreciative. Guy loves his job! Took a little bit of a wait to place our order- we could see the servers attending to other tables, but once she came- she was very helpful in describing and recommending dishes. Drinks came quickly, 4
  4. Bit of a different take on the sandwich. I also had both sandwiches--quick tip, download the app and order/pay- then you bypass line. Both sandwiches were very juicy under the super crisp breading. Spicy had a slight kick. The Classic didn't have a ton of flavor, but perhaps it was too hot to tell. I would say that if you have to do a fast food lunch- this is much better than anything offered at McDs- would not wait in a line, but it would do the trick.
  5. Costco has it, imported from Italy
  6. totally agree on stir fry. I tried both thin and knife cut---knife cut was a clear winner for me. Much more texture/bite. Too hot to try the soup, but they look amazing.
  7. Inside of the NY Mart in Rockville is a small Asian food court. Been some turnover- the main steamtable place has changed. Still have dumpling place/sushi place/bakery. Yanzi Noodle just opened. www.yanzinoodle.com I got a small Rice noodle soup with roast pork and mushrooms- as the add ons. I wanted #4 but they were out of fried pork, so they made it with roast pork. The inside page of attached menu image describes the base for all soups- spicy 'snail' broth, pickled veggies, etc. The soup was fantastic- spicy, with some numbing...no "snail-fish" flavor, a little bit sou
  8. Totally agree about the small grilling area. It could only cook about 1 order of meat at a time- that could be a problem if they really bring 5 items. The grill was quite impressive with a downdraft ventilation system around the perimeter...no "stinky clothes, like Honey Pig".
  9. Opened Wednesday next to MOM's market in Rockville. Mini chain, other locations out west. Soft opening-10% off. I went last night and suggest waiting and paying 100%. Very awkward- from being seated-to waitress-to mgrs-to owners-cooking at your table, etc. They have 2 options. AYCE BBQ or Hot Pot-or both. $24.99 for BBQ at dinner. 16.99 at lunch. more options on dinner selections. I had the BBQ. Your waitress takes your order for up to 5 meats/seafood. They then bring bunch of marinated veggies, nothing special. She also mentioned that you can order as many appetize
  10. Went for lunch today...small place, seats probably 25-30- Cash only. Pictured- #6 YiBin Noodles and Spicy wontons. Noodles were great- perfect bite/texture. Topped with a dry ground pork mix, some pickled veggies. and ground peanuts. Spicy, both red pepper and sichuan peppers- so traditionally spicy and numbing spicy. Lots of garlic! The wontons had a similar taste and mouth feel with respect to spices, soft wrappers, almost transparent. Couldn't tell what was inside. Would definitely go back to explore the menu- would not order both of these dishes, since they were simila
  11. Yu Zhou.... great Sat/Sun small dishes served from the lunch steam table counters. Lots of choices, many times lots of pointing. I love the long beans with ground pork, vinegar peanuts, plate of rice-with fried pork/hard boiled egg/pickled greens and gravy (sounds strange...try it), etc. Be prepared for the owner to be working the register, which slows things down greatly. He is NOT a multi-tacker and forgets about ringing people up when the phone rings.....
