Holton Farms CSA - news??

Just wondering if anyone is still waiting to hear back from Holton Farms about anything regarding the CSA death/survival plans since they abruptly closed last year (Sept 2011 or so) with some members still having supposedly credits with them.

Where to buy vegemite/marmite in DC area?

turns out Marvelous Market on Cap Hill only has marmite.

Where to buy vegemite/marmite in DC area?

well i don't have a car and am in the city. saw that i could get to Friendship Heights and Pentagon City ones. Def will call if the Eastern Market thing doesn't work out. Thanks guys.

Where to buy vegemite/marmite in DC area?

yeah well i'm not looking for marmite. that's easy to get. it's vegemite that requires more effort (because it tastes better! )

Where to buy vegemite/marmite in DC area?

okay great will check out next wk. otherwise was going to check out Cost Plus World Market (both locations) since it's at least on their website for sale. worst case scenario: order from their online store.

Where to buy vegemite/marmite in DC area?

did you ever find any? I just moved to DC and am almost out. I brought the remnants of my jar from NYC just in case. :-)

I see that no one ever answered your question below. Marmite doesn't taste as good as Vegemite; Marmite tastes slightly different. I only eat Marmite if there really is no Vegemite!!

anomalously excellent food in mexico city airport

well compared to the tamales at Antojitos Oaxaquenos in Queens, the tamales had a greater masa to meat ratio...

anomalously excellent food in mexico city airport

FYI I was just at the airport this past weekend. My flight took me into T2. I took the tram to T1 but there is security between the terminals before the tram and they looked at my next boarding pass (out of T2 still) and asked why I wanted to go to T1. I said I wanted to go to a restaurant there and they said okay. I found Tacañon just by walking randomly towards some exit towards buses and then turned onto a ramp on the left before the actual exit and suddenly there it was with a bunch of other small restaurants. It's more a walk-by restaurant. They don't have any of the options that they used to have anymore I guess. They didn't have any tamales, tacos de mole negro, or tacos de guisado. All I had was a tacos de bistec which was okay but nothing special. You can get better tacos for cheaper in Queens, NY. (Jackson heights comes to mind!)

(Also note the tram only comes like 1x every 10 minutes or something like that. I had to wait over 8 minutes for it - it's not like the AirTrain in NY which I think is slightly more frequent, and the the terminals are closer).

I then went back to T2 to the huge food court and had a tamal oxaquena from Restaurante Pollos Rio. It was okay. maybe too much mole and not enough meat!

That food court, however, probably has the best selection of food in the airport. Once past security it's pretty bare bones. You can get a hot taco or anything inside T2. If I'm there again, I might give Tortas Don Polo in the food court a try. It had a large number of people eating out of there.

snowskin mooncake

Double Crispy Bakery on Grand has them.

Off topic but I don't like how they're misnamed. In Chinese it turns out they're literally 'ice-skin'/'cool-skin' mooncakes, not 'snow-skin' I went in asking for 'snow-skin' mooncakes once and they gave me a blank look, but then they figured out what I wanted.

East LIC?

I would call this more central LIC. LIC goes pretty far east.

There's the new LIC Market http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7253...
haven't been but people say it's like Sage.

There's also La Vuelta (sort of in between west and central LIC.

for a liquid diet there is Dutch Kills now - same people responsible for Milk & Honey.

Is it possible? A $70 per head restaurant for a wedding?

I just went to Bubby's for a wedding and the food was good and there was plenty of alkie to go around. (drinks were strong!). and so glad we got pie at the end!! Not sure if $70 includes alkie. The space is cool too - lofty, and they have cool photobooths in the back too.

Best Shaved Ice

Saw this this past wknd at the Amsterdam Market downtown (South St. Seaport)...Bao Bing.
Didn't try it. I only like plain shaved ice (or maybe I would like the aforementioned green tea shaved ice) with simple syrup. But it looked like they had the whole shebang.

Antojitos Mexicanos - Woodside - still around?

yeah i am pretty sure they're not the same people. this is the 'famous' cart - got coverage before in nymag, etc. small cart that only sells tamales. too bad if it's gone for good. i hope they come back or are there when i go again.

Antojitos Mexicanos - Woodside - still around?

Are they still around because 2x in the last 2 visits they were not there under the train tracks.
I feel like they're being overshadowed now that a newer and bigger taco truck arrived like 1/2 a year ago?
