  1. I go as far as to say I think their biscuits are pretty darn good. I had a hard time finding good biscuits when I lived in NYC and when I first moved to DC (in the 90s).
  2. I didn't get a steak biscuit or an Italian sub (ended up at St. Anselm for brunch) - both of which I crave more than authentic tacos. I go to Taco Bamba all the time for some tongue action.
  3. Had brunch at Piccolina before hitting the Holiday Market. We tried the Lamb Sausage Scaccia, the Porchetta Panuzzo, and the Diavola. The lamb sausage combined well with the rapini, and the roast pork combined well with mustard greens and salsa verde. Too bad the kids don't like bitter greens, so I got plenty of delicious leftovers. The kids had more luck with the pizza. We sat outside - very comfortable even when the temp is in the low 50s.
  4. Might stop by for lunch before checking out the Holiday Market tomorrow. http://www.karmamodernindian.com/menu.html Can anyone recommend some dishes for me and the kids to try? They can eat a tiny tiny tiny bit spicy.
  5. Lupo has a few 2 tops outside so we ate indoors early. They did a good job of spacing the tables. The pastas were al dente, the rapini was garlicky, not fancy but well executed. We stayed at Hotel Rehoboth, where Lupo is housed. Very nicely furnished but the windows are not sound proof at all. Bring ear plugs if you plan on staying here.
  6. Chang says MSG caused him to be bipolar. Just kidding. I just didn’t know where else to post the story about him being bipolar.
  7. Anxo has a nice outdoor patio and the menu has things that I would enjoy, so I went to check it out for the first time last weekend. Ordering is done through their website. I ordered everything at once, thus lost control over the timing and ordering. First to arrive were smoked salmon croquettes and clam chowder. The croquettes were overly fishy and since I ordered lots of food, I did not feel compelled to try more than a couple of bites. The chowder had lots of tender clam bits which convinced me that it was freshly made and I finished the whole bowl. The artichoke with egg, aru
  8. Stopped on the way to NJ. I had pre-ordered a pint of hummus, it now comes with 4 pitas and pickled veggies. I ordered 4 additional pitas. The hummus is as good as I remembered- still the best I’ve ever had. The pitas were thicker than the laffa at Zahav but very pillowy. Wish there’s a Dizengoff in DC.
  9. I haven't been to Corduroy in forever so when the forecast called for an Indian Summer for this weekend, I booked a reservation at "Clos du Roy" (the alley behind Corduroy and Baby Wale). As can be seen in the photo, the tables are widely spaced. They also lit a wood fire in the brazier for some added charm. I'm posting this in the wee hours to remind people that they can still go on Saturday night (forecasted temp is low 60s/high 50s). The complimentary amuse was charred tomato soup. This was delicious, as expected. I also ordered a lumpia (Filipino spring roll). A normal o
  10. There's a Wegmans within walking distance of my house now (I still haven't been but I've been checking out it's website). Two things that I have purchased from Safeway is substantially cheaper at Wegmans! Jimmy Dean bacon, egg and cheese biscuits (4 pack) are $5.99 at Wegmans and $7.99 at Safeway (both are within walking distance of my house, but Safeway is closer and doesn't require me to cross Rt. 123). Golden Krust Jamaican meat pies are $3.49 at Wegmans and $4.99 at Safeway. I've missing out!
  11. Never did anything with my Oculus Go, but I just got an Oculus Quest 2. Anyone else has one?
  12. I made a Beyond Meat burger at home once - it was pretty darn good. But I've never had anything at any of Spike's joints. I would if he opened a proper restaurant.
  13. I have cable with Verizon, D+, Peacock (to watch Premier League), and Netflix. I wonder if I would save any money if I quit Verizon cable and sign up with Fubo TV.
