  1. Local filmmakers will share the virtual spotlight this weekend during the free-to-watch Community Stories Film Festival from Docs In Progress and The City of Takoma Park.
  2. Inspired by the daring forays of Todd Kliman, I took it upon myself to do something people who frequent these internet food boards rarely do: I drove my car down New Hampshire Avenue from Langley Park into the District of Columbia. Cheesesteak Mike's in Hillandale? Might as well have been Flaps in Potomac. Tiffin at the intersection of University Blvd? I'd sooner go to Rasika. No, my friends, I went, and I went deep. Threading in and out of pothole-ridden parking lots, I walked up to places previously unthinkable, and even looked through the windows. One of my dicier moments came when I wal
  3. I went to a trapeze show up in baltimore that had some free snacks like homemade hummus and my own homemade carmelized onion dip but afterwards I was feeling hungry so I hit up the taco Truck near the corner of New Hampshire and East West Highway. I had a fun time ordering food from them since I don't speak much spanish and they didn't speak much english but I tried the Pupusa de Loroco having no clue what a loroco is (turns out it's a vine like flower plant, tasted a bit like spinach) and that came with salsa and coleslaw. A total steal for 1.50
  4. Takoma Trukgarten, Takoma Park’s annual craft beer, wine and food festival, will be held this Saturday, June 1, from noon to 5 p.m.: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/entertainment/takoma-trukgarten-festival-set-for-saturday/
  5. A couple with local roots will open a taqueria at 7056 Carroll Ave., currently occupied by a Subway sandwich shop, in Takoma Park: Cielo Rojo Opening in 2019
  6. The Girl & The Vine, a new market, bar & café is "shooting for" a March 18 opening at 7071 Carroll Ave., the former location of Capital City Cheesecake: "New Takoma Park Market / Bar / Café Aims for March 18 Opening" by Mike Diegel on sourceofthespring.com
  7. I first tried out Seoul Food's offerings at the DC Grey Market a few months back. They're now a full-blown food truck and received a nice writeup in yesterday's Good to Go column. They make their way to Courthouse once every week or two, and Rosslyn, Clarendon, and Ballston are among their regular stops. So far I've tried a couple of different dishes and find that they are tasty, filling, and a pretty good value. As the article notes, the bibimbap is a little different than the usual restaurant version, with shredded fresh carrots and radishes and salad greens included. The beef and the tof
  8. If you have followed local sports for a fairly long time the name Steve Francis rings a bell. He grew up in this area, played 2 years of excellent JR college basketball and then one marvelous season at the University of MD, 1998-99 Following that season he was the 2nd choice in the NBA draft. He had several excellent seasons and then slowly succumbed to injuries and personal issues. At one point though probably stretching from that season at MD through about 5 years in the pros he was simply one of the more exciting dynamic basketball players or more narrowly guards in the NBA and
  9. I received the following e-mail via a Silver Spring listserv this morning: Trattoria da Lina is a new Italian restaurant coming to Takoma Park in early 2017. The project will take over a former office space and add another option to Takoma Park's growing dining scene. Construction is well underway for this 55 seat restaurant in the heart of the Takoma Park commercial district. The restaurant's design is rustic and cozy with brick and wood and inspired by the casual eateries of the owner's motherland.The menu will offer a wide variety of pasta dishes, including traditional favorites
  10. I wanted to start the thread here for a new spot coming to downtown Takoma Park. Seth Cook and Chris Brown, two coffee veterans who have been at Northside Social for years, are branching out on their own. They have a great location on Laurel Avenue, and construction is about to begin. TKBC (@takomabevco) will offer coffee, beer(draft) and wine as well as a great cocktail program. The menu will be designed by a chef you will all recognize. I love this team and this concept, and that is why I decided to back them financially and advise on the project. Keep your eyes out as the project progresses
  11. So, we just made an offer on a money pit in Takoma Park. Where does one go to eat there? Is there any place actually in Takoma worth seeking out? I am somewhat more familiar with Silver Spring, although the version where the Quarryhouse was still a watering hole and Tastee Diner was on Georgia Ave. I know the co-op, and farmer's market, Snider's & Whole Foods in Siver Spring, and my Thai market on Thayer. Any other good shopping destinations?
  12. The lady at the Ethiopian food truck downtown today recommended Walia on New Hampshire Ave in Takoma Park. Has anyone been? There doesn't seem to be a thread on it here.
  13. Downtown Takoma Park's dining options continued to expand with the opening a week ago of Takoma Bistro, operated by the Bread and Chocolate people. Taking over the ill fated Everyday Gourmet, with some art and a little remodeling they've transformed the space into a warm and inviting cafe that also has outside seating, open seven days a week for three meals a day. a beer and wine license is expected in about a week. Right now the place opens early, at 6:30 well ahead of competitors like Capital City Cheesecake (7:30, weekdays) and Marks Kitchen (9:00, weekdays). The breakfast menu includes eg
  14. Last weekend, after a truly frustrating afternoon at Lowes, we finally got around to checking out Samantha's (according to the Post's website, it does have the apostrophe). We found it only by memory and luck ("I think it's on University"). It has a nice casual, family-friendly vibe. We were starving, and demolished the salsa and chips. The salsa was pretty good-- it's thicker than most (not too drippy or runny). We started with the chicken tamales (billed as a Salvadoran "treat") and the ceviche. I thought the chicken in the tamales was a bit dry, but I think almost all chicken is dry (excep
  15. My husband recently discovered this place. The food is amazing They serve tacos, pupersas, fajitas and other delcious treats. You must get the lengua tacos, the meat is tender and flavorful. The tacos come with harboiled egg, avocado, lettus and onions. Really delicous! Tacos were super cheap, something like My favorite pupusa was the mixed one with pork, cheese and beans. The loroco was also decent. They come with a delicous vinegary coleslaw Husband got the shrimp fajitas that came with roasted vegetables and homemade corn tortillas. They were super thick. Tacos are about 1.50, pupusas a
  16. At a very well attended community forum this evening, after a discussion about Chef G and Robins new Avenue Oven, Murat Uzuntepe and Cenk Duzturk presented their plans for Roscoe's. First of all, the name was an immediate hit with the locals, and actually showed some knowledge of the community. Roscoe was a free range rooster who lived in downtown Takoma Park for many years. After his death, the community commissioned a bronze sculpture which is on display in the farmer's market area. Anyway, the idea is what they describe as "gourmet pizza", and they specifically mentioned Two Amys and Pizz
  17. Slated to open April 1, Capital City Cheesecake will be operating out of the old Savory space on Carroll Ave. in Takoma Park, MD. This is great news for Takoma Park and word on the street is that their cheesecake is exceptional! http://www.capitalcitycheesecakes.com/
  18. Taliano's has been closed for several months now. It's supposed to be replaced with condos.
