  3. The first of three Second Sunday Markets from Fenton Street Market will kick off this Sunday, September 10 from 12-6 pm on Ellsworth Drive in Downtown Silver Spring: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/fenton-street-market-returns-to-downtown-silver-spring-sunday/
  4. Highland Origins a newly opened coffee place across the street from Addis Ababa. They seem to specialize in Ethiopian coffees (no surprise there) and have free WiFi. I had a pretty good drip coffee today.
  5. We've ordered from Thai at Silver Spring twice now so it's probably time to write it up. So far we have tried: Pad Phrik King Muu Crispy Duck with basil Pad Thai Gai Kaprow Larb Gai Tom Yum Goong Lad Nha Pad Si Ew Green curry with chicken Panang curry Nothing was particularly bad, but it seems every dish has an element missing and everything is far too sweet. In the Tom Kha it was the herbal top note missing, in Gai Kaprow the taste of fish sauce rounding the chili and herbs. The menus offers no levels of heat and even the dishes marked "spicy" have been tame enough for my kids to eat. We might try dining in next time and asking them to turn up the heat. It's not as bad as Benjarong, but makes me wish Ruan Thai was a little closer.
  6. I couldn't find a thread for La Malinche, the tapas restaurant on Colesville Road in downtown Silver Spring, and it's not in Don's dining guide "“ so, I will start one! The place calls itself "Spanish and Mexican" tapas, and while it is certainly not as polished or refined as someplace like Jaleo, it fills the need for a quality neighborhood spot like this "“ I can't think of any other small plates place in downtown Silver Spring off the top of my head. That may be why it has lasted for over three years in an area that sometimes turns over non-chain restaurants pretty quickly, but I do think it is an above-average choice, particularly in one area (that I'll get to momentarily). I'll try and be comprehensive, since I'm starting the thread and have eaten there several times. I returned the other night for dinner, and the food was very good, but as is often the case with small plates, is not necessarily a great value at that time. We wanted to keep it relatively small, so we only ordered four tapas between the two of us "“ the basic patatas bravas, tortilla, and then the scallop and salmon preparations. The basic dishes are tasty, but not standout, although I will say that they are pretty generous with the potatoes for a tapas place (bigger than dishes I've had elsewhere for around the same price point). The fish dishes were very good "“ the fish seemed very fresh and well-cooked, and the sauces (a corn salsa for the scallops and a tequila sauce) were flavorful but not overwhelming. They did not ask how we wanted either dish cooked, which is probably more relevant for the salmon. I'll note that value proposition may come into question for some here "“ the fish dishes were each $10, with three medium-sized scallops and a relatively small piece of salmon (on top of purple potatoes and Brussel sprouts) "“ and that is certainly the path to a high bill at a tapas spot. On previous trips, I've enjoyed various other preparations, including both meat and veggie dishes, - I've never ordered anything that I disliked or had to turn back, though I also can't remember a standout dish either. Dinner is not where the restaurant thrives, in my opinion "“ it's in some of the value propositions they offer at various times. The happy hour is good "“ a collection of $3 and $6 tapas and $3 drinks, though limited to the bar only. They have a special $20 prix-fixe lunch (which includes 20+ choices, though if I recall some of the more pricey fish and meat dishes are not included), as well as an $30 prix-fixe brunch menu on weekends , including alcohol. While there are some other solid brunch offerings in Silver Spring, La Malinche is one of the only ones that offers that sort of deal "“ and considering the quality and variety of the choices (though the options may sway a bit more towards the lunch end of the spectrum, if I recall), as well as the included alcohol (which is mimosas and bloody Marys, but also sangrias and draft beers), you can certainly get more value than you might at standard lunch and dinner sittings. Anyway, wanted to finally put this place on the board here "“ Don, while I don't necessarily agree with everything about the dining guide order in Silver Spring (and I'd be happy to parse that with you elsewhere), I think you can safely put this place in the middle of the pack (non-italicized) until you or others have a chance to explore it and chime in.
  7. I was going to write this as a "toast" in this thread, but it wouldn't be enough. To David and Rhoda Burchuk - may they always be remembered for founding this magnificent beacon of light in 1950. To Carol Warden - for accepting the baton, and carrying it for as long as she could. To Dale Music - one of two great DC institutions when it comes to buying sheet music (Foxes in Falls Church being the other). Dale Music is shutting its doors for the final time on June 30th - Carol Warden has sold the building, and is going to retire. It was the rare exception when you needed a score on short notice, and Dale didn't have it in stock; the few times that it did happen to me (with obscure pieces, or unusual editions), they ordered it, and it arrived within days. The great Dale Music should be thought of in the same vein as Politics and Prose, or Frager's Hardware. And another piece of my childhood is gone forever. Don Rockwell --- ETA - And so it goes: Goodbye, Dale Music.
  8. Has someone already started a thread for this new place? I didn't see one. Anyways it got a sound thrashing by someone on Tom's chat and I was just wondering if anyone else had tried it out. I saw it opened and was reallllly hoping for a go to sushi place near home.
  9. Any good?Any posts here, yet? This mention was the first direct reference I found in a search. Stumbled upon the place tonight and was intrigued. They do goat. Okra. Groundnut stew. ETA: Err...and kindly explain the subheading His Donness composed.
