Dim Sum

Had dim sum at Oriental East. Pretty good, but no better than Hollywood East. Factoring in the crowd, I'll stick with Hollywood East in the future.

best crab cakes in maryland - any suggestions?

Crisfield's is still terrific, but their crabcake has never been outstanding. For crabcake, Jerry's (Lanham or Bowie) is best. Clyde's is pretty good, as well.

Growing Up In D.C./Balt: Who Else Remembers....

Flagship and Hogates were "twins" in the same way that O'Donnell's and Bish Thompson's were so similar and a block apart in Bethesda.

SHOCKER - Vince & Dominic's CLOSED

Robert Dyer is reporting this venerable institution has closed after 31 years in business. I haven't been there in many years, and now feel guilty about contributing to their demise. If I had known, I would've gone one last time.

Shanghai Taste, Rockville, 12/12 - report

Very good restaurant with very good prices. Since the cameras are calibrated at 12 miles over the limit, sounds like you were driving way too fast.

The Hitching Post

The fried chicken was nearly identical to Dempsey's Grill in Middletown, MD - my favorite. I'll try different sides on my next visit.

The Hitching Post

Finally got there this evening. The fried chicken was as advertised - OUTSTANDING. Good slaw and cornbread, but below average mac & cheese. Very small dining room, which was full by 6:00.

My favorite dim sum item...

...would be the seafood tarts at Hollywood East.

Not eating out or just not posting?

Yes, it is tiresome to hear that there are no good bagels, pizza, barbecue, et al, in DC.

Not eating out or just not posting?

The harsh winter weather may be a reason for lack of participation.

Thai Taste by Kob, Wheaton

Ate there last night. Good value on the dinner deal. Salad, soup, two spring rolls, entree, and soda for $10.99. My entree was Duck Kaprow. Nothing was outstanding, and certainly not better than Nava in its heyday, but quite serviceable, nonetheless. Good service, and nice people.

Neopolitan Pizza in and around DC

Mia's is good but very pricey. Da Marco's is a better value. Oh, and Haven's pretty good.

Bethesda takeout - best seafood stew and best fried seafood

Cameron's (several locations) is carry-out only. Seafood In The Buff is in Glenmont, not as good as Cameron's.

What would you say is your favorite Pizza chain?

I like Ledo's and think the Wheaton branch is the best.

Season"s 52 has anyone been there?

I've eaten at the Tyson's Corner branch twice, and enjoyed it both times. Food was better than average, and service was outstanding.
