  1. I pretty much get the same thing when I've gone to B&E: turkey and eggs. Not turkey sausage, mind you, but turkey. As in deli sandwich slices of turkey griddled on the griddle.
  2. I forgot to make a post about this last weekend. Odd considering it was one of the first dining out I'd done in a while. To wit, I was in Annandale thinking of getting a crazy Korean corn dog at Siroo Juk Story when I saw a new restaurant in the old Blue Sand Seafood spot: The Stone Tofu House (website, Instagram). The are nominally a soondubu jjigae (spicy soft tofu stew) joint with the added bonus that they apparently make their own tofu everyday. That would put them one up on Annandale stalwart Lighthouse Tofu (which I'm pretty sure does not). Now it being a zillion degrees, I did
  3. I think for the moment it’s due to the fact that there is so little passenger traffic that it’s not cost effective to use air shipping. But, yes, shipping chocolate in summer is wary at any time!
  4. I was going to suggest online through omgjapan which has things like this variety box, but it looks like Japan Post isn't shipping to the US at the moment (at least by air).
  5. The two places that first come to mind are Hana Market in DC and Maruichi Grocery in Rockville. The are the two Japanese markets I can think of. The other place is that candy store in Tysons Corner Center...Lollipops? Something like that. They have weird candy from all over, but not sure if anything in the mall is open.
  6. I'm a fan of "fast casual" salads, so much of my feelings are based on those places. I agree with Cava. You get their Splendid Greens (or whatever it's called) with roasted veggies and you have a good meal. And yeah, SweetGreen is good, but prices go up fast! I have always like Chopt as well. I like their Mexicali Vegan for its flavor. And, actually, one of my favorite salads is back at Panera Bread: their strawberry poppyseed salad. Now that I can buy that dressing in store, I often use it to make my own salads. Beyond that, I think there's a True Food Kitchen in Bethesda, and I've
  7. I do like cheeses and I've been eating on a wheel of Cougar Gold for a while, so a change would be nice.
  8. FYI, Clarity has gone full take out like many places. If you visit their website, you'll see the menu for the current day. The focaccia pizza sounds nice to me, though I think his thought that a quarter sheetpan serves 3-4 is a bit optimistic. I'm hoping I might be able to go by later this week.
  9. Yeah, Miso is a fun, good little place. I like to get the cold soba noodles combo with...well, whichever katsu I feel like.
  10. Dekopon season again! HMart was even pushing the Jeju Hallabong (Korean name for the fruit) tea. I tried it but it was like hot orange water compared to the my favored honey citron tea (yuja cha). Another place to look for them is Safeway. I think Whole Foods (as usual) is the most expensive, but Safeway seemed to be a better price.
  11. @Ericandblueboy Since that is President's Day Weekend, I believe I can make it. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to (I wake up at 4:30 am for work, so I go to bed early), but since I have Monday off, I think I can do it!
