we went to check out crave mad for chicken soft opening last night. crave mad for chicken is a korean fried chicken joint, part of a chain from new york. it took over the conveyor belt enso sushi on kneeland.
besides fried chicken, their menu was only limited to some apps and sushi unlike the new york location. so we only ordered some chicken.
MFC claims their chicken to be all natural, farm raised with no hormones and no antibiotics, always fresh, never frozen. comparing to bonchon, the chicken def tasted much fresher.
the service wasnt exactly on point yet as they are still working out their kinks especially for their first night, but they were very friendly overall. i’d def come back again when i crave for some chicken.

Another pork belly post. Every month I travel to NY and DC for work. My parents live in the DC area, I took them out to 2941 for the summer tasting menu. 2941 is located in falls church, it’s easy to miss since it is tucked away in a very Virginia Office park.
The restaurant has great ambiance with nice high ceilings and large glass windows overlooking a lake
Summer Truffle & Cauliflower
citrus cauliflower, tarragon, lemon thyme
pain de mie, berry compote, lemon curd icecream, coconut
Overall 2941 this visit to 2941 isn’t what I remember what it was like before 2-3 years ago. It’s definitely become more casual. The ingredients are fresh and made with excellent execution.

went to yocha for something desserts.
although the space was clean, bright, and spacious, i didnt really enjoy the dessert soups. im not a fan of sweet tofu pudding, but most of their soups have sweet tofu pudding. they also serve frozen yogurts and drinks such as tea, bubble tea and coffee.

we went on a deep sea fishing tour with a few friends back in april. it’s an all day event, so we got to hampton beach around 6am in the morning.
we were pretty excited as we were getting on the boat, I thought it would be a nice day hanging out on the ocean and hopefully catch some fish for dinner. little did we know what we got ourselves into.
it was a 2-hour boat ride off the coast. 10 mins after the boat started moving, all of my 3 friends started throwing up like crazy. it was windy so the ride was rough. i started to feel uncomfortable an hour in. i didnt throw up , but i already started regretting this. i felt freezing cold even thought I was in my canada goose long jacket.
the boat finally stopped moving after 2 hours and it was time to start fishing. all my friends were still throwing up. the waves felt even stronger after the boat stopped moving and i started to feel very seasick. 10 mins later i joined my friends and started throwing up into the ocean. i didnt eat much that morning so nothing really came out.
i didnt throw up as much as my friends, but i still felt very very sick and freezing cold.
the crew was really helpful. they were running around showing ppl how to fish or just help them out in general.
it was the longest 8 hours in our life and I still can’t believe I actually survived looking back. we were beyond relieved and thankful when we finally got back on the land. we all swore we would never go on such trips ever again. my friend was still throwing up after got back on the land. i asked if this could get better over time and they all told me no. they said if you are seasick then you would be forever seasick. it was such a terrible experience for us, so think twice if you wanna go one a deep sea fishing or whale watching tour. maybe go on a half day tour to try it out first. we all been on boats and cruises before and we were all fine, but a relatively small boat all day out in the ocean is a different story.

uni sashimi bar has been serving late night ramen from 11 pm on fridays and saturdays for a while now, but it took us a while to check it out.
there was a wait for tables, so we grabbed seats at the bar.
not sure if bartenders hate ppl eating food at the bar especially when we werent ordering alcohol, the bartender kept ignoring us so it took us a while to get his attention and ordered our food. i just wanted ramen and to go home and sleep.
both of the ramens were absolutely TERRIBLE. the broth was had no complexity, just a hot mess (well it was luke warm), let alone flavors. CRAZY salty, the most salty noodle dish ive ever had. the entire meal was disappointing. i left really unsatisfied and disgusted and i really wanted my calories back! ugh. i’d avoid their ramen at all costs.
