Here’s the dish! This past weekend, I traveled to Raleigh, N.C. for @NaturallyFashionable’s inaugural Blog with Kim Live workshop. There, I would meet up with some of my Blogger Baes from Atlanta—Kay from RunWay with Kay, Lisa from Unapologetically Lisa, and Je’Mia, who will soon be launching her blog about all the happenings in and […]

Dishing on Chaplin’s Shaw

Here’s the dish! Now that I’m not babysitting like I have in previous years, happy hour comes in a close second to my favorite (liquid) meal of the week, right after brunch. After seeing some of my American University classmates at our CBC event earlier this month, we decided to reconvene for happy hour the […]

Dishing on Zest Bistro Barracks Row

Zest Bistro closed its doors for business in October 2015, shortly after this blog post. Here’s the dish! After living in Southeast for a year, I’ve become obsessed with Barracks Row. I tend to patronize Alexandria a lot, just because I can get my city and suburbia living all on Route 1, but I was […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Nothing comforts you when you’re under the weather like a hot, hearty bowl of soup. When I woke up last Sunday feeling a bit under the weather, I knew I wanted some chicken soup to warm my soul. I didn’t want to go for the traditional Chicken Noodle Soup I ate as a child when […]

Dishing on Blue Duck Tavern Georgetown

Here’s the dish! My coworker recently raved to me about the Blue Duck Tavern in Georgetown (located at 1201 24th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037 inside the Park Hyatt), ensuring it would be a blog-worthy visit. I wrote it down on my list of recommendations people have given me since starting this blog. I knew […]

Dishing on Founding Farmers D.C.

Here’s the dish! Since moving back to D.C. just over two years ago, there are a few restaurants that repeatedly come up when I ask for brunch recommendations.

Dishing on Rustico Slaters Lane

Here’s the dish. I’ve been dragging my feet on writing this post, because quite frankly, I don’t want to do it. I knew the time would come when I would have to do it, but I didn’t think it would be this soon. I have to dish on a not so pleasurable restaurant experience. A […]

Dishing on Hank’s Oyster Bar Old Town

Here’s the dish! I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t like raw oysters. However, if you fry, bake, broil, saute, or grill them, I’ll eat them like it’s my job! When a new friend suggested trying Hank’s Oyster Bar in Old Town Alexandria (located at 1026 King Street, Alexandria, VA 22314), I was game. […]

Dishing on Rasika West End

Those of you who know me personally know there aren’t many foods I don’t eat. I’ll seriously try just about anything once. There are a palmful (less than an handful) of cuisines I don’t enjoy, and Indian food would be at the top of that list. Now, I probably should’ve prefaced this by saying that […]

Blue Apron’s Rice & Beef-Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Lime-Crema Sauce

Here’s the dish! On Sunday, I cooked Blue Apron‘s Rice & Beef-Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Lime-Crema Sauce. It was packed full of flavor and delicious. My eyes are often larger than my stomach, so I thought I would need more than just the stuffed pepper for dinner. I later found out I was incorrect in […]
