  1. Fall 2018 I think I may seriously consider looking for digs in the city of Lancaster, Pa. Each day , I grow more fond of the red rose city. No offense York, but I think RED is my color.
  2. I walked into Troika Gastronom today, and noticed about a dozen different Russian beers for sale, most of them in single, 16-20 ounce bottles or thereabouts. I can't vouch for how long they've been sitting on the shelves, but I can vouch for the selection. If you're in Seven Corners, or around Pizzeria Orso in Falls Church, the little-known Hillwood Avenue (one of the "seven corners"), VA Route 338, is your secret pathway. Look at the tweet (is "tweet" capitalized?), and you'll see that cake, carrot mentioned that Halalco, a large Halal grocery store next door, is the best source for goat in the NoVa suburbs - I haven't been, but I trust Jake's palate. The two of these stores, in such close proximity, make this worth a detour, and New Grand Mart - putting three interesting ethnic grocery markets in a one-mile diameter - makes it worth a journey.
  3. The new market in the north part of Del Ray just opened (a small regional chain, I guess), and I went in this morning to check out the scene. First glance, it's a typical small, yuppie market with a small amount of good looking produce, limited meats, but has the other staples (canned goods, cereal, soups, condiments, baking stuff, etc.), as well as a good amount of fair priced to expensive wine. They have a small beer area, a deli counter, a baked goods counter. It's expensive, but not that crazy ($2.99 for a gallon of milk, but the produce is pretty pricey). The most interesting part to me was the cafe/restaurant/bar area. It's adjacent to the deli, and pretty cool - looks warehousey/loft style with a long bar, seats there, and tables. The menu had ... korean fried chicken made to order, three different types of ramen (I think shoyu, miso, and something else), and then various small plates. How strange! It wasn't lunch time yet, so they weren't serving, but I'm certainly interested in trying it. If there is halfway decent Korean fried chicken and ramen walking distance from my house, I may have to reconsider my feelings about a higher power. Curious to see how it will do, location is in those new apartment buildings on Mt. Vernon, north of Hume but south of San Salvador.
  4. Went to the Naked Lunch restaurant on Saturday, in the bottom floor of the new Mom's Organic Market in Courthouse (on Lee Highway). Enjoyed my lunch thoroughly. They don't seem to have a separate website (though they're a separate restaurant that I think only operates in MOM's - there's one in Rockville and Merrifield, maybe others). I can't find their menu online, so I'll try to remember to take a picture of the takeout menu I brought home. Some of the items are described in the yelp reviews. It's a tiny, tiny place - one two-top table, four barstools (with backs and padded, yay) at a little counter, and that's it. Good for take-out, if it's too full to eat in. Service (ordering at the counter) was a little slow, though it could be because they don't have their routine down yet. Service was also very friendly and accommodating. Everything was vegetarian, and I believe they can make most or all of the dishes vegan. Mostly it's fast-casual steamed or roasted veggies, on top of grains, with tasty sauces. They have set items (I was looking at the Lin Bowl and the Moler Bowl, but ended up with roasted cauliflower steak over spinach, brown rice, mushrooms, and a couple other things I think, with a zingy chimmichurri sauce/dressing). They'll substitute anything, it seems like, or just add things (I had asked about another dish that included sweet potato, and when I ended up with the cauliflower, she asked if I would like sweet potato on it too - yes please). And you can create your own combo if you prefer that to the bowls on the menu. Mine was very tasty and filling. I asked for light dressing, and she gave me extra on the side because she said she'd gone very light - I appreciated that. Delicious dressing, and it complemented the veggies very very well. My husband had the Sushi Bowl, which included tofu, rice, avocado, and some other things, and a gingery sauce that I liked very much (I'd order that dish another time if I wanted a change from the cauliflower). They have lots of fresh juices (all the combos had vegetables, which I'm not a fan of in juice form, so I didn't try them, but I wouldn't be surprised if I could get it without), kombuchas, bottled drinks in the refrigerated section, and a black bean burger as well as the various bowls. I'll definitely go back.
  5. If you have a craving, there's still by brazil off georgia near wheaton.
  6. Linsy's Store in Catonsville is a casual Mexican restaurant where the tacos match anything around here. Evan Brown of Portalli's gave me a gift when he told me that the guys who work in his kitchen swear by Linsy's when they want Mexican food. Now, I can share the gift with you. These are ideal tacos. Soft, pliable tortillas with corn flavor. Savory meats -- a little char to the barbacoa and a nice grill on the chicken. Then talented fresh toppings -- cilantro for flavor, a cooked green onion and sliced radish for crunch, and a fiery green salsa to squirt on yourself. Linsy's sits on Rte 40 in Catonsville. Until Evan, I had driven past dozens of times coming home from H Mart. The market is hidden behind a Popeye's franchise. The restaurant is hidden in the back of the store. You need to search the place out if you like R&R Taqueria in Jessup or Tere's Latin Market in Ellicott City. I love both those places, and Linsy's are just as delicious. Different kitchens. Different meats and garnishes. But this was a perfect lunch of two tacos and horchata that they ladled from a pitcher into my cup. You can't beat fresh tacos. The flavors pop off the plate. The salsa alone would have made the meal. They have basic chicken, beef and pork tacos, although they didn't have pork when I visited. The Spanish menu also lists tongue and options that translate into "ear" and "assorted." I can't recommend this enough. Even if you don't love this as much as I do, you can eat for $10. Linsy's offered a full Mexican menu with counter service. They had a range of dishes from small tacos or tostadas to full meals like grilled pork, seafood soup, enchiladas, or al pastor shrimp. They do breakfast. I ate lunch on a Sunday, and the six tables were full of kids and families. While you're at Linsy's for tacos, check out the other business nearby. Patel Brothers is an Indian grocery with vegetables, rices, spices, and other Indian items. Next door is Paradise Biryani Pointe, which I added to my "to do list. Biryani is an Indian rice dish, and the menu has a bunch of dishes that are new to me.
  7. To complicate things a bit, I was a frequent customer at the Italian Gourmet in Vienna about 20 years ago. As I recall, it had a short-lived and not as good sibling in Herndon, I believe.
  8. Prompted by JPW's complaint about too few postings this weekend, I thought I'd share my meal at one of the region's smallest eateries. The Mighty Midget in Leesburg is a little metal shack (made from the fusilage of on old plane?) with several picnic tables around it. It is becoming my go-to spot for a pre-errand or post-golf weekend lunch. Pulled pork with just a little less sauce and smoky flavor than I'd prefer is still very good. An unadorned half-smoke comes alive with a sweet, tangy mustard relish. And jenrus is a fan of their fried fish sandwich - big and crisp and flaky. You can order your burgers rare if you choose and they have that "charred on an open grill" taste you can't seem to get anywhere. The fries are flavorful, if a little flabby. I haven't tried the ribs yet, as they're only available occasionally but most reports are that they are the best thing on the menu. But this weekend I was reminded that two good things combined can be more than the sum of their parts. One variety of their burger comes topped with a mound of the pulled pork. I'd shied away before as I'm not ususally a big fan of "fusion" food. But the visiting momrus ordered it and the two bites I had have me ready for next Saturday's visit. The char and the smoke and the sauce all come together and make it sing. The Midget may not be turning out the best food in the area, but if you're out that way its worth a stop.
  9. There's a large seating area upstairs. The soups at Wegman's are quite good too. There's a Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling, for that matter - although I'd hardly characterise them as fast.
