  1. We were excited for our first visit, but I have to admit that we did not enjoy our meal very much. We began with the Fried Tofu, which came out as light cubes, in a puff-pastry style, but they were completely tasteless, and I didn't care for the consistency. The sauce that came with it was tasty, but it wasn't enough to save the dish. The highlight of the meal was the Grilled Pork Sausage, which had an intense and complex taste, with ginger sticks serving as a nice accompaniment. The Grilled Pork came as strips, and also had a really interesting combination of flavors, but they were buried und
  2. I'll admit that I liked the broth in the Spicy Miso Tonkatsu, served at the new Tysons WF Genji Izakaya. Everything else in the bowl was fine, but I wouldn't serve my dog the 2 small pieces of fatty pork that it came with. There's nothing "Tonkatsu" about it!
  3. All I know is that the ramen I had in Hawaii ruined me for the ramen you can get around here.
  4. I was in Philly a few months ago, and made my first visit here, having heard that they provide a finely chopped steak in their cheesesteaks, which i prefer. Actually, I was heading towards Jims (which also finely chops their steak), but when i saw the line, I double backed to this place (I went to Jim's the next day 😀). Anyway, it was a great cheesesteak! I also washed it down with a Gremlin, their signature drink that is half lemonade and half grape juice, and really hits the spot. I'll also note that i didn't think the Jim's cheesesteak was any better/worse than what i got here (both we
  5. We've gotten take out from here a few times in the last month, and the reviews are mixed. The apps have all been fantastic: Crab Rangoon that are light and fresh; large, thick egg rolls; hot and sour soup; pork dumplings. Given the way it tastes, everything seems to be made freshly every day, or thereabouts. Similarly the Shrimp Imperial has a fair number of jumbo shrimp, and quite a bit of broccoli, which aren't steamed to death or drowned in sauce. In fact, I'd argue that the "light garlic sauce" (which, when getting takeout, comes in a container on the side) is worth going out of one's way
  6. The results are in, and it was a solid first attempt. Perhaps a tad on the dry side, but tasty overall. I served it with a kugel and coleslaw. Again, I am grateful for all the help!
  7. Headed to the islands of Maui (staying in Lahina) and Oahu (staying in Halekoa). I know nothing about these places. All recs (food, sights, whatever) welcome!
  8. Quick question for @agm, or others, regarding how to cook: when slow cooking in an oven using a roasting pan, should I use a rack in the roasting pan or just lay it flat on the bottom of the pan itself? I'm using the rub agm suggested above (also added 1 tbsp each of onion and garlic powder).
  9. I recognize I am (unintentionally) damning it with faint praise, but it is what it is. My go to in McLean has recently been Santinis, but I don’t claim that to be all that good. We get Ledo in Falls Church more than anything, really. it was my first Pulcinella pie, and probably my new go to.
