  1. If I was buying my BGE all over again, I would get some sort of indirect cooking insert, a fan, the expander, and a skillet (I have a half-moon one for mine). I am interested in getting the rotisserie accessory, but was dissuaded by this video (and its attitude) years back: Still, I always wanted to get one. I use my BGE more often for slow and low meals. Also for smoking. The wok I like because it is less of a commitment to flame on and the meals skew healthier. But nothing beats a good burger or a brick chicken on that skillet!
  2. It's very spartan: I have a sturdy cart, I've placed a stone paver on top of it, and set the cast iron wok burner on top of that. It looks a lot like this video:
  3. It’s the best Thai that delivers. I am personally not a fan of their fried appetizers (beyond not traveling well), but everything else has been outstanding.
  4. I love my propane wok, having a gas line would be even better. Not sure if a water line is feasible, but having a sink is very handy.
  5. I passed by yesterday, was tempted to go in but the line outside was so long I couldn’t justify the wait. The line is a good indication that it is worth it still, or no?
  6. http://www.jerkatnite.com/food.html No affiliation with the former Ball or Nothing, to my knowledge. This take-out/catering/food truck operation is located on H Street NE. I've passed by several times in the last couple weeks, and there is always a line for the food truck there. And people down the street further sing the praises, too. Anyone ever try it before?
  7. Ok I got the Sushi Ogawa picture mixed up with the one from Nama Sushi, as you can tell from my description of the 18 orders (of double nigiri plus the maki). The platter in the Nama Sushi picture does not look incredibly cheap for $90.
  8. The Creamery also has started offering a no-commitment CSA share from Lancaster Fresh Farms Coop. Organic produce included kale, a variety of lettuce, squash, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes.
  9. It seems to be incredibly cheap? 15 orders of nigiri plus three maki . . . So 18 orders for $90 comes out to $5 an order? Maybe not dollar sushi but cheaper than Whole Foods?
  10. I have been only patronizing several establishments, and even then I’m guilty that I am not only supporting one. Hopefully I have picked places that have a real chance of surviving. --- Joe's Seafood (Mark Slater) Wooboi Hot Chicken (reedm) Beer Deliveries (Rhone1998)
  11. Has anyone personally had this dish? And know of a “authentic” recipe? this dish is mentioned in the iconic Watchmen graphic novel, being served at a fancy Manhattan restaurant in the 80s. I see some random, conflicting internet recipes.
  12. I've been back several times, it is a fun, informal place to solo dine. I have not had an appetizer that I disliked yet. I agree with Ericandblueboy, the Doubles aren't my thing necessarily, but the chickpeas are tasty. There has been a bit of a price creep, the pork belly is now $12, as are the organic chicken dishes: the jerk wings are smokey-spicy-delicious and the trini-chinese chicken in a semi-sweet glazed oyster sauce. The wings are a crowd pleaser, the trini-chinese chicken is chopped through the bone and probably best for those comfortable with that style. (I am). The cow heel so
  13. Stopped by Sweet Science for a coffee this morning in NoMa, and saw this on the neighboring storefront.
  14. Sorry, didn't mean to be cryptic, I just honestly can't find a quiet dinner on a Friday. Corduroy would probably be my best bet, I love that place. No news flash there. Ivy City and the "New City DC" will likely be the welcoming mat to those driving into DC from the Northeast. There is a new biketrail in the works to connect Ivy City and NoMa. I like Ivy City Smokehouse, or Panda Gourmet. Did you check out the renovated Hecht's warehouse/apartments during your last trip? North Capitol Street is part of the Main Streets Program. They have a lovely wine shop Domestique that fea
  15. Lunch: Ivy City Smokehouse Dinner: no opinion, it seems that quiet places suited for lingering on a Friday night are ones that are on the verge of closing, unless it is refined-fancy.
