  1. I meant to go in for a goodbye to Java Shack but wasn't feeling well this weekend and didn't go out anywhere. Sorry to have them leave, and I'm glad to hear that they gave their employees lots of notice as well as severance. The employees there were always very nice to customers, the shop was a great part of the community for a very long time (I remember when they opened, and we went there a lot especially when our kiddo was little), and we'll miss Java. I'm glad, though, that another independent coffee shop will be taking over the space after a while: https://www.arlnow.com/2019/11/14
  2. We had a lovely meal at the Rosslyn location a couple weeks ago. The tastiest thing I had was the small plate of grilled spicy wild calamari in romesco (not too spicy, since my husband who doesn't do spicy was fine with it, but it was so flavorful). I was going to order it, but they gave it to us free because they had offered us free prosecco to celebrate (we were there for a big anniversary and also a birthday) and we don't drink so we said thank you but declined. They gave us mocktails instead, which was nice of them, but I didn't expect them to also give us a free appetizer. I will get
  3. I still enjoy Momoyama, although the prices have gone up some over the years. I'm not your best sushi recommender, since I mostly eat cooked items like Boston rolls, but their tables are usually full with people eating regular sushi.
  4. I've been back once since I last posted, got the non-spicy pork tonkatsu again. SO good. The last time it had lots of woodear or similar mushrooms, which made me extra happy. I need to go again soon. They recommend the spicy if you like spicy, but I don't.
  5. We went again last month with our big group (four families) and everyone agreed that their dim sum is very strong and one of the best places we've been locally. (I also recommended it to my mom who went with a group of her friends earlier this year and they all liked it.) Really liked the shrimp and scallop dumpling mentioned above. Regular turnip cakes very good, and special turnip cakes cut into cubes with XO sauce were great. Excellent variety, the carts kept coming and coming. We had the usual har gow, shrimp in rice crepe, steamed buns (pork ones, chicken ones, and another I can'
  6. We've been back twice more already. Such good ramen. The last time I had it, it didn't have the lettuce (which I was happy about), and did have strips of black mushrooms, which I was delighted to eat.
  7. Has anyone had the bao or pupusas at a game? Any other new things you've tried?
  8. Takeshi Sushi and Ramen has had a soft opening in Courthouse, at the corner of Wilson and Barton (under Rooftop and next to Delhi Dhaba), where the Subway was for years. We are likely to be regular customers for their terrific tonkatsu ramen. They have not had their official opening yet, so for example, their soda machine had not been delivered yet as of last night (though originally it was supposed to have been there last week, they told us, but the vendor changed the dates at the last minute). They do not have a sign up yet with their name, though you can see Japanese lanterns in the
  9. We went on Sunday at noon and all found parking without trouble (though the lot was moderately full near the restaurant, there were spaces, and there was plenty of room elsewhere in the lot). It's our new favorite dim sum place. More details later.
  10. We're going there this weeked - @Lydia R thanks so much for posting the menu! How is parking there? Only thing I could find is a yelp review saying parking is tight.
