“Sometimes, the trailer is better than the actual movie OR the picture online of the dress looks cooler than when it arrives at my house — man, I really hate that. And sometimes, the picture of the food looks tastier than it actually is *cough cough*! I do think that the price is doable for the variety of seafood but it just happens that the seafood is missing any hint of flavor — not to mention that their bread was stale and burnt, which is a pretty important component of this dish if you ask me!”

“I can’t claim this entire giant plank of salty, fatty, juicy awesomeness to myself — I shared it for a dinner date with my good gf, Jeein Ahn! She drank red wine like a pro, I drank water like a wimp and we chatted over the perfect amount of cured meat, tangy mustard condiment and freakishly sour pickles that made my face scrunch up! We both thoroughly enjoyed yourselves, the service and the restaurant.”

I still remember watching Guy Fieri giving a rave review on Dx3 for spam when he covered Hawaii. Back in the day, before the Hula Girl Food Truck, you couldn’t get this bizarre concoction anywhere in the DMV! So thank you SF for having a Hawaiian barbecue chain that serves different types of musubi. Their meats was perfectly cooked and salty while their rice was properly sticky! Not to mention that I got a few to-go as they made for wonderful snacks for my flight back to the east coast!”

“I don’t even know where to start with this one. Yet another experience that failed to live up to it’s undeserving hype — the Statue of Liberty, renting, baby showers, roller coasters, steak houses (particularly Ruth’s Chris), being an adult — I thought the the meat was barely edible and the ingredients were a day old. I rarely do this but to it’s defense, the BF did order it without animal style sauce, without cheese and to-go.”

“We, the Coworkers (and a few significant others) hit up Spike Mendelsohn’s pizzeria for a very chill happy hour. Some of you may know Mr. Mendelsohn as the bad-ass from Top Chef’s Season 4 in Chicago. DC Bloggers have both rated his pies highly and negatively, so I definitely had to check it out myself. For me, it definitely falls below average as it was nothing special for the price per slice. Also, it was weird that if you wait more than 5 minutes to finish your slice, your cheese would harden. Lastly, note that his burger joint RIGHT next door, Good Stuff Eatery, serves above average meat patties and spectacular milkshakes!”
We, The Pizza | Location: 305 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington DC | Food: Forest Shroomin’ (right), Rating: 2/5, Price: $4.00/slice | For The Record: wild forest mushrooms, truffles, mozzarella, thyme
“My heart wasn’t always filled with black goo. Back in the day, I used to be a really fun fat kid! And sometimes, when I am in the mood, I let her out of her cage to eat bread shape like a turtle with raisins as eyes. I believe you can get the same shapeless sourdough at a much cheaper price. But I would’t know that because the BF and I affectionately named him Squirtle and ate him for the next 3 days. He was very satisfying!”
