@Victor - Ah, looks like the address is off. It's the Ginza one definitely. Here's the website: http://sushi-ochiai.com/
Definitely call ahead to make a reservation if you can.
Really wishing this place will open by the next time I'm in Kenya for work! Any info on where in Nairobi this will be located exactly?
@Spaghetti Memoirs - Glad you had a good time! Chantal is the best.
@zakalwe - Bear in mind that each of those cuts is 10-12 ounces each. There's nothing in the photo to compare it to, but it's actually a very large board and meant for sharing.
@ryomuffin - Ah, whoops! Thanks for the correction.
@frayed - Thanks for pointing that out! The menu there is the drinks menu.
Good catch @XXDavidsonXX! Thanks.
@sobriquet Pho Sate is fantastic! So is Eden Center in general.
Hey guys-I agree that that photo does make the burger look pretty raw, but I'm going to have to say it was at least in part due to the lighting. I can attest to the fact that it was actually a warm pink center. I promise Palena won't serve you raw meat. Don't let that photo deter you from trying one of the best burgers in DC!
I'm determined to go to Naples within the next 2 years.
It's actually a toasted vanilla pastry cream. The toasting gives it a bit of caramelization. I wouldn't have minded a little bacon in there though!
@smprada, @RegrettableFoodie - OK, maybe not hard to get to. Just a little out of the way. But, as a MD resident, it's kind of a hike! That's my own bias coming through I guess.
Thanks, @moca78. Good catch!
@Humberto - That's what I was told by the staff.
@Mmmph - Don't get me wrong, I'm also a huge Pupatella fan (featured their montanara back in June). Have to give credit where it's due though - 2Amys is a DC institution.
@Where is Lola? @J. Kenji López-Alt - I did have a bunch of other stuff, but I can't lie - I love me some ramen!
@b_ob27 Good catch! Fixed.
@fwilger - The way Chef Bailey does it is just by dipping his fingertips in the water and sprinkling it into the bowl. Just enough to start getting the semolina to clump. If it's not, sprinkle some more. If it's too damp, ease back.
Check our Armands's Chicago Pizzeria. There are a few locations around DC, although I've heard that the Tenleytown location is closing.
I should have mentioned that!
The deep dish pies are 9 or 12 inches. The thin crust pies are 12 or 16 inches.
I agree, they are a bit pricey.
You guys are right. I've corrected the caption!
Good catch, nekojita! You're right, I meant tonkotsu.
Postcard from 1952 - Explosions in the Sky
On my third cross country road trip (less food centered than the first two), the notable spots were Uncle John's BBQ in Chicago (rib tips!) and Arthur Bryant's BBQ in Kansas City (burnt ends!).
