Kapnos Taverna

I should have ordered it! I must return. BTW, my son thought the feta spread was salty, and I thought it was perfect!

Kapnos Taverna

Really? I was tempted to try it but got scared. Was it really salty?

Kapnos Taverna

We went to Kapnos Taverna on Saturday and I was duly impressed. I really like Graffiato, so I was worried that my expectations were too high. We got the trio of dips, delicious flatbread and hummus that was the best I have ever had, along with a feta dip and a lentil. All very good. zucchini bites were fired perfectly and had a great yogurt sauce. Octopus was smoky and tender. Oysters were extremely fresh and well shucked. Gyros were smoky and on to-di-for bread. Highly recommend it.

India chicken

My international store sometimes calls silkies, or black chickens, India chicken. Regardless, they are delicious.

Kogiya in Annandale

I liked it a lot. So much that I had to go back a second time. Nice beef, not fatty, loved the potato salad, miso pork was tender and flavorful.

Good hoagies in Northern VA or general DC area?

New York Deli Italian Restaurant, 13700 Old Brandywine Road Brandywine, MD 20613. It was huge, salty, meaty and complex, everything I like in an Italian hoagie.

Where can I find Saba in Northern VA?

I was cooking through Mike Isabella's cookbook and ended up getting it at the Italian Store, off Route 50.

Please check out my food blog

I agree about not hearing enough about you, your attitudes, what's making you happy, and what you want. Otherwise, I will definitely read your blog. I tried blogging for about 10 months, but lost enthusiasm. Hope you live long and prosper!
