Toro Toro

Toro Toro has been on my brunch radar for a while, but I haven’t had the chance to try it.  I did, however, have a chance to try their happy hour.  I was very pleasantly surprised. Toro Toro’s happy hour menu was fairly extensive with cocktails running $5 and nibbles from $5 to $12. I…

Menomale

I have a friend who loves pizza, so I’ve been trying a few different pizza spots lately.  Last week we went to Menomale for lunch in Brookland.  I’m really starting to like this area of northeast DC.  It’s a small area, but there are a few hidden gems within.  I miss the days of finding little out…

Room 11

I originally intended to go to Room 11 for New Year’s Eve. It was the only place in town that didn’t have a prefix, VIP pricing or took reservations. Exactly what I was looking for. But I ended up staying home (happily) and rescheduled for the other night. I loved how dim and cozy the…

Eatsa

I’ve walked by Eatsa a couple of times before it opened but couldn’t figure out what it was. I assumed by the name it was food related, but I couldn’t tell where or how the food was being served. Then I forgot about the place until my boss came by my desk one afternoon telling me…

Melt Kraft

I LOVE grilled cheese sandwiches. I was in Philly last week with a friend and he found Melt Kraft for me. Since we just arrived in town and were a bit peckish, this was the perfect place to start for our Philly adventure. And it was just a block away from the hotel! The menu…

Brasserie Beck Update

So I had a lunch date at Brasserie Beck yesterday. I think this was my fourth visit to this restaurant and I was determined to order something other than the croque monsieur. They’re so delicious, it’s hard to resist! I decided to fully branch out and try the mussels. I’ve had mussels once before. Let…

Swizzler

I love food trucks. Correction, I love the concept of food trucks. I even thought of starting one myself, but I don’t eat at food trucks. Until now. Thanks to all the foodies on Instagram, I saw the most mouthwatering hot dog and tracked it down. It belonged to Swizzler. A food truck. I followed…

Alpha Pie House

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to a food truck, my friend and I spotted Alpha Pie House.  We thought it was a dessert/pie shop, but as we got a little closer we discovered it was really an authentic Greek pie shop.  I went in to grab a menu, but they didn’t have any,…

DGS Delicatessen

DGS Delicatessen is my favorite deli in DC. Ok, so it’s the only deli I’ve been to and I use the term deli loosely because it’s more of an artisan deli. There isn’t anything on the menu that I’ve tried so far that I haven’t liked. Their corned beef and pastrami are cut differently from…

Mango Tree

Since my office moved approximately two blocks from our original location, it’s become increasingly difficult to find a place to eat for lunch.  Walking back to our old area seems too far (no judging) and the food trucks are just beginning to discover the park across from our building as a great place to camp out. …

Friday Things

A Manhattan and goldfish.  This is how I started my weekend.  Thursday’s the new Friday right? It’s been such a week of ups and downs.  I’m super bummed that I wasn’t able to post every day this week.  Someone needs to eat out more!  I am going to Swizzler for lunch again today for another hot dog….

Poppabox

I will fully admit to being one of those people who’ve succumbed to the food porn on Instagram. I post a ton of food pics there myself.  Instagram and Yelp have become two of the biggest tools I use when trying to decide where to eat (I also subscribe to a ton of local food…
