TMB-Dulles Corridor & Loudoun County

Recommended Posts

I was just told by a few friends (Not Quick Draw and AGM - over dinner at Tallulah) that there is a new neighborhood dining meet-n-greet going on here.

I don't believe anyone has anything started for my neck of the woods... how many folks live out in Loudoun County? Any interest in trying to meet sometime for dinner out in the wilds of Loudoun?

I know the Xmas season is quite hectic so it may not be the best time to start up but I thought I'd ask...

ok, so depending on sched we might have 5-6 people?

would Old Dominion Brewery work for folks?

We live near Fairfax City. Am contemplating starting a TMB for Fairfax City and points west, but it occurs to me that this thread would overlap?

So far no actual TMB for Fairfax City, Burke, Fairfax Station, Chantilly or Centreville. Not that there's an overwhelming number of restaurants to try. For that matter, are Annandale, Seven Corners, Bailey's Crossroads, etc. in a TMB yet?

We've never been to Old Dominion Brew Pub, but I thought I read that it isn't as good as it used to be?

Having recently deserted food civilization for the techy corridor out here near Dulles, I have been exploring day by day for fun new places to grab lunch, but it's not as much fun to do so alone. Anyone nearby who would like meet me for a mid-day meal?

I have been working out this way for eight years now and have lunch out just about every day. I'm certainly available. Although the pickings aren't all that plentiful there are a few decent spots and probably a bunch I've never tried.

When I work from home, I would love to join you all. If Herdon is not to far, I suggest the Tortilla Factory.

That is one of the places I've never tried. Every time I end up at that shopping center I go to the Peruvian place there.

I stumbled across this site - HerdonCuisine.com yesterday. It sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, but a few places that I haven't been to on here intrigured me a bit. I especially like the map of the world feature.
What a fun site! I might just use it today...have a craving for some Pad Thai now that pasta, rice and other grains are back in the diet!!!

I was just thinking the same thing. I've been wanting to try some places I haven't been that I found on that HerdonCuisine site. Euro Bistro looks interesting to me - if German food can be interesting. So do Jamaica Jamaica and Warka. I've been craving Peruvian lately too, so Pollo Inka also sounds good to me.

Warka got the job done curbing the Ethiopian craving today at lunch. We ordered the vegetarian combo (curried lentils, split lentils, greens, cabbage, salad) and a the Kay Sega Wot (red pepper beef). While the seasoning was a tad on the light side and service was excruitatingly slow, it was a really nice meal for a measly $21 for two. I'm now waiting for the food coma to set in.

Mine's already arrived.

Surprisingly un-scary place considering its location in the back of a business/industrial park. And things were well cooked - not overcooked - with only the typical berbere spiciness missing, especially in the beef.

And it is much closer than U St. or Adams Morgan.

I've been wanting to try Jamaica Jamaica and I have an errand to run in the neighborhood sometime in the next few days. Anyone up for some Jerk (chicken, not company) any day this week other than Wednesday?
I could make it either Thursday or Friday this week. Is this in the same complex as Ethiopian?

I believe it is the next office park down from that one. How about Thursday?

Who else is in? C'mon you know you want beef patties...

Haven't been in lately since it's just been too hot for goat curry, but they're still going strong - they hosted a Jamaican art show last weekend, and I can personally vouch for the fabulousness of their Christmas cakes (order early to avoid disappointment!)
