co-workers introduced me to DC Restaurant Week at
701 Restaurant. Three course meals are the best. The food is definitely overpriced, and I found the portion sizes disappointingly small. However, it was delicious, and with the special restaurant week deal it was worth it for a lunch with colleagues.

Vintage Frozen Yogurt

I’ve been wanting to try Vintage Frozen Yogurt for years, but I always drove by it when it was closed. If you’re in Atlanta, you must try this place! They make their ice cream fresh each day.

is my heart country because the food is amazing. I try my best to recreate the flavors in my kitchen, at home as often as possible. But sometimes I cheat with pre-made ravioli and vodka sauce. Come on, you know you do it too.

Even when I’m feeling lazy, I do try and add personal touches, like fresh basil and parmesan cheese.

dinner was spent at
Ninja New York, the coolest restaurant for an adult kid like myself. The food was good, but the atmosphere is what you go for.

You enter a ninja cave, where your life is threatened at every entree by a stabbing or samurai sword. Every entree comes with dry ice or flames up – which means be prepared to snapchat the your whole dinner.

Bring friends so you can laugh at each other as your servers/ninjas attempt to murder you throughout dinner. Be sure to get a ninja head wrap so you can take an obligatory selfie. I’d recommend Ninja New York for your next special event.

inevitably always end up grabbing soup dumplings from
Joe’s Shanghai, when I’m visiting the guy up in New York. Soup Dumplings are magical creations from the world of Harry Potter. How else can you explain the delightful liquid soup trapped in steamed dough?

Joe’s Shanghai also has the best pot stickers I’ve ever eaten in the US. Writing this blog post has me drooling. It’s a great affordable lunch, I’d highly recommend you eat here on your next trip to Manhattan.

Duong
for some delicious quintessential Vietnamese favorites:

Pho

Spring Rolls

Vietnamese Coffee

I also ordered their clay pot, which wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I believe this is largely because I suspect they did not actually cook the ingredients in a clay pot. A traditional clay pot cooked fish is delicious, but this dish was mediocre.
