Harris teeter sells them.

Good basic breakfast in NoVa?

We always go to Harold and Cathy's in Dumphries or S&G in Quantico town. Both are 50s throwbacks with substantial amounts of food.

Ihop for birthday dinner.

You definitely should go, if that's what you want! I got some kind of omlette sandwich ther e last week and it was pretty ok.

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!

Society Faire in Old Town Alexandria has delicious guaniciale for about $6.99/lb.

Best Eastern Shore Produce Stand

We stopped athe one on 50 next to the seafood store and were very happy. The peaches and tomatoes were very ripe!


Both places sound great! I looked up Herb and Soul and would definitely go there and well....who doesn't love a good sub?


Thanks, all sound good. What is your opinion of Towson Hot Bagels? Doesn't sound like a chain!


Oooh, we love pho, great idea!


Thanks! I saw Thai One On, should have stopped. I will be brave and drive down York Road as well.


Thanks! The Cuban Cafe sounds like something we would love. I drove past the Melting Pot, we will try it out.


Drove up to Towson today, son will be going to school there in the fall and anticipate many more trips. Where to eat? We had lunch at the Green Turtle, which totally underwhelmed. Looking for suggestions...

Breakfast in Dale City or Quantico?

We like Harold and Cathy's Dumphries Cafe. It is SOOOO old school! Everything is freshly made to order, the coffee is good and it is an incredible value.

Lamonica's restaurant in Boswell

Anyone been? Looks interesting and I pass it often, thinking of stopping.

Amici's restaurant in Ebensburg

Anyone been? My mother wants to go and I'm curious as to what to order, what's good and what to avoid. I like a good bolognese and seafood, and from looking at their menu online it looks good.

When are ramps coming in?

I went to the Old Town farmer's market looking for ramps this weekend and found no love. Anyone have an info on when we can expect to find ramps?

New York Italian Deli and Restaurant

We went to this place in Brandywine on New Year's Eve for lunch and it was amazing! No atmosphere (I remember when it was an antique store)but food that exceeded my expectations. I have very specific ideas on what an Italian sub should be; no mayo, vinegar, oregno, tons of meat, provalone, onion and roasted peppers and this place did it perfectly. I could barely finish half of mu sub. The kids got a Times Square with Spicy chicken cutlet, bacon, swiss cheese and chipotle aoili and an Archie Bunker with corned beef, pastrami, turkey, swiss cheese and russian dressing. They couldn't get over how big their sandwiches were and how tasy and fresh tasting. The bread was really good as well, with a bite yet really fresh and good tasting. I will definitely return, it was that good. I liked the sub better than the Italian Store's.

How to procure pork jowls in DC/NoVA?

I bought guanciale at society fair in Alexandria this weekend.


Went to the Italian Store yesterday and found saba and mortadella. I guess I should not have gone on a Saturday, it was off the chain crowded! The line was too long to get something to eat, so I ended up having lunch at BGR next door. It was ver good, thanks for the help!

How to procure fresh Uni and not-overpriced Lobster?

GrandMart on Little River Turnpike has lobster for $4.99/lb on weekends.


Thanks so much! I'll go to Amazon then for squid ink.
