  1. Brunch at Tabard Inn in sinful. DC also has the biggest Ethiopian population in the US so those restaurants are supposed to be amazing (although I’ve never been to one)

  2. If you or your boyfriend like BBQ and find yourself in the Hampton Roads area, I would suggest Hog Wild in Toano, VA (about halfway between Richmond and Newport News). Keep the VA posts coming!

  3. When I saw your picture I thought you were one of my in-laws children. I read some more and saw you were a double major and I was almost convinced, but Shi-lin studied languages. However, just because we’re not distantly related doesn’t mean I won’t follow back.

    I grew up in Falls Church, VA, I still have great memories of the area. Is the Florida Ave. Grill still there? The Tombs or 1789 and Old Ebbits?

    Thanks for visiting and following.

  4. There used to be a wonderful little Chinese place in Falls Church that had the most amazing pork broth-based house soup.When we questioned an ingredient,(translucent, semi-crispy), the waiter went bug-eyed and said it was a seaweed, ‘very healthy for you’. I searched for years for this ‘seaweed’ which no one I asked ever heard of.Some years ago I was watching a cooking show and there was the ‘seaweed’.I called my mother; she nearly choked , although it had been over 15 years since she’d eaten the soup.The ingredient was jellyfish.I was fine with it.

  5. Shilla’s is wonderful! If you’re in northern Virginia again, try Rafagino’s in Burke. Freshly made pasta and they have a wonderful shrimp app with smoked mozzarella that is delicious!
