  1. I followed GPS into the Old Crossing Center, across from the insane Alto Plaze. While the latter looks like a run down strip joint or something from Disney World after the apocalypse, Old Crossing is seemingly zombie free and is home to more restaurants than almost anywhere I can think of in the DMV. Certain blocks of 14th street might compete but they do not have a huge Super H Mart! So for su, I drove the entire mall with my video on so I could capture the names of all the restaurants. At some point I ill see if my video can be uploaded. Tomo 2 spots I could not read the names of
  2. I tried Bear Rock once when I worked in FC. Completely forgettable, no surprise that it's gone. But, this new place screams "Joe's Crab Shack" to me, and that's not a compliment. What are the odds of this place being any good? My little girl would love to have a local source for mudbugs, but the lobby of an upscale condo is unlikely to be it.
  3. Pardon the late notice but I spotted this forthcoming Asian food hall a few weeks back. Streat Side is claiming three slots (6343-6347) in the Center Ridge strip mall, setting up shop between the pending Coast Guard Exchange store and chain eatery Choong Man Chicken. The owners haven't responded to emails about their plans for the new venture, but their web page promises a 4,000-square foot space that sounds a lot like Annandale's Block: 6 food stalls, a dedicated bar, and a "lively and cozy space." I've heard construction crews working their magic inside but can't tell if this newbie is
  4. Anyone else tried this place yet? I've been twice. The food is very good (the pizza is really good). Service needs work.
  5. In a perfect world, Malaysian would be the new Thai. If everyone considered the truism that cuisine is largely a product of geography, and that Malaysian food is thus heavily influenced by Thai and Chinese cooking with significant, but less assertive, Indian cuisine influences, they might decide that Malaysia Kopitiam is worth trying. And if everyone in the D.C. area ate at Malaysia Kopitiam a couple of times, Malaysian restaurants might start springing up in equal numbers to Thai restaurants. Malaysia Kopitiam is where I head when I am downtown and want to grab a fast, inexpensive dinner w
  6. Pho Hot and Pho Bistro were the only two pho joints I knew of in Centreville. Was there another? Yes, Centreville is becoming Koreatown II. There was a WaPo article a couple years ago about it. Old Centreville Crossing and both parts of Centreville Square have many choices. I've only been to a few so far. Pho Hot and Tian are my favorites of the few I've tried. I haven't been to Hwang's. Below is a list I found on another web site. It's a post from about a year ago, so a couple of these are likely o/b and there are probably a couple new ones. But, it's an extensive list of what it's Cen
  7. I saw a post on Matsu Sushi in the Chantilly thread, but I couldn't find a topic, so I started one. Website Hours: LUNCH Mon-Fri 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM Sat 11:30 AM - 3:00 PM DINNER Mon-Thurs 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM Fri-Sat 5:00 PM - 10:30 PM Sun 5:00 PM - 9:30 PM I went there for lunch with my brother today as it was close to his office and I haven't had sushi in a while. For lunch it was extremely efficient and you can definitely get in and out on a reasonable lunch time schedule. We both got sushi with miso soup and salad. Their salad dressing was fine, but not my favo
  8. Ok. This place is part of our regular rotation. Its nestled in a little strip mall near the nicest trailer park you'll ever see. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here. I have also never had a great meal here either. Everything I have had is in a solid 7 range. The Carnitas, Barbacoa, and Stewed chicken are probably the best. Put them in an enchilada, burrito or taco... it's kind of the same. On Saturdays they have a Kid's eat for a buck promotion.... So I find myself here once a month. Most of the time they have a woman in there that does balloon animals. She is
  9. Ciro's is the Centreville location. According to their web site, they also have a place in Stone Ridge (new community out 50, just past South Riding). I'm not familiar with the Manassas one. For some reason, my wife likes Ciro's over Tony's, but they're the exact same place as far as I can tell. I prefer Tony's just because I was going to them for years before I found Ciro's. I live right in the middle of both of them, so they each get our business. The other place I like for pizza is Havabite in Old Town Fairfax.
  10. I stopped in for lunch at Danji Asian Bistro today, and my bill was under $10 (after tax but before tip) for what was a relatively massive portion of food. Danji is in the gigantic Old Centreville Crossing Shopping center (the one with Spa World, H Mart, Honey Pig, etc.), and it's front-and-center so you can't really miss it. There were only a few people dining for lunch, and one employee was easily handling all front of the house operations. I felt like ordering something unusual, so I got the Kalchi Jorim ($8.99, $9.99 at dinner), which was translated as "Belt Fish and Vegetables." The
  11. I've been keeping an eye on this space for a while since the old Scotto's Rigatoni Grill disapeared. I've seen the signs for Aguaymanto for some time but they hadn't opened yet. Last thursday I was cutting through the area on my way to Chipotle (having talked my son out of Chick'fil'e). As I droe by I noticed lights on here and hung a quick left to check it out. I'm glad I did. They opened a few weeks ago. and they did a very good job of remodling space. The staff there was very nice and were especially kind to my rampaging 2 year old. We got carry out, a half a chicken with yuca and
  12. Tucked away in a strip mall in Centreville is, what I consider to be, a very solid Pho place. I've been there a few times over the last few months and its been solid every time. I haven't explored the menu that much, essentially stuck to the pho but since it is only 7 or 8 bucks a bowl it hits a certain price point. If you are in the area, and are in the mood for a quick, cheap lunch - give them a try.
  13. Did you know there was an ethiopian restaraurant in Centreville? Neither did I. I was running errands with the boys a week ago when I decided to run into this place to get a menu. They had no carryout menus so I reviewed one of the normal ones, hoping that my 2 and 5 year olds wouldn't trash the place. On a lark I decided to get one of their combo meals, as I have never had ethiopian before. I'm no authority but my wife and I enjoyed everything. Here is where it is important to take note. They are also a bakery. I spoke with the owner and she takes pride in the deserts they make in h
  14. There's a dearth of good Korean BBQ places in Rockville so I was excited to hear about Iron Age, which opened up about a year ago. Unfortunately my experience here wasn't positive. I went with about seven other people for a meetup group. Between us we split a shabu shabu pot and the pork BBQ set. The BBQ portion is all you can eat for $18-$22 per person. For this reason they were really strict about the shabu shabu people not sampling any grilled meats. Service was poor. Our server seemed incapable of multitasking, despite the fact that the restaurant was nearly empty. He flat out refu
  15. So WTOP is having another "Best of" places and this time, the theme is Mexican. One of the places commented on their FB page is a place called Red Rocks Cafe & Tequila Bar (WaPo link - no known webpage found), which piques my curiosity because it's not Austin Grill, and it doesn't appear to be a chain. Has anyone been?
  16. For those of you who drive through the 28/29 area, you know what I'm talking about. They've literally been constructing at that site for years. The only signs say "Cooley Electric." My wife called the Cooley phone number and they said it will be a mexican restaurant. I've heard a rumor that each level will be progressively higher scale than the one below (there are three levels). It's built to have views of the mountains in the far distance with balconies on level two and three on the west side. Is any of this even true? Any idea when it will open, what it will be called, if it's local or a ch
  17. Second the recommendation for Indian Ocean. We ate an early dinner there recently, and it was excellent. The samosas got eaten before I could try them (which is probably a positive recommendation), but I did get a vegetable pakora, and it was the best pakora I have ever eaten. I wish I knew how they got the besan flour so light and soft on the inside with the outside so perfectly crispy. Nicely spiced, served elegantly (yes, elegantly) on a plate with swirls of tamarind and cilantro chutneys. Mr. lperry loved his chicken korma, and I weenied out a bit choosing palak paneer, figuring it wa
  18. Reporting on Le Bledo made me think of it. There is a quick-e-mart type Vietnamese store in Centreville that sells Banh Minh called Park and Shop. It is by the 7-11 on 29 near the bowling alley. The sandwiches are 3.50 and are made on fresh baked bread. Worth a try if you are in need of a snack and you are in the area. In fact, they sell the bread for a quarter a roll in a huge box up front. I've been known to pick up several, an onion, a pepper and some frozen sliced rib eye and make some KILLER cheesesteaks.
  19. I haven't been to this place, and in fact the main reason I feel compelled to start a thread is its bizarre and humorous signage: "Chicken Land Pig Princess". This seems like it should be one of those "punctuation saves lives" situations, but I'm not quite sure how. (For the record, Fairfax County's records indicate that there should be a hyphen and some spaces separating 'Land' and 'Pig'. Because 'Land-pig' would be even weirder.) Anyway, it's clearly a Korean joint, and the photos on this Korean-language website look appealing enough (a recent health inspection report, less so). Has any
