MAKI SHOP | The DC sushi restaurant that stole my heart

Maki Shop dc roll

After one too many glasses of wine on Friday night, the boyfriend and I woke up with slight headaches (whoops). Not sure what would cure us, we began to list off different things to eat… mac & cheese, bacon, sushi…? The sushi idea stuck!

We remembered we had passed by an interesting looking sushi-to-go style restaurant on 14th street the night before. It was within walking distance and we could wear workout clothes to it (win, win!)… the sushi plan was in motion!

STEAK FEAST | Del Campo in DC

Del Campo steak

It was the boyfriend’s birthday and all he requested for his birthday dinner was “meat”. In DC, that left hundreds of restaurants to choose from. After extensive researching, review reading, and menu perusing, the birthday celebration location was selected, Del Campo!

Everyone is obsessed with pho… it’s the new trendy thing to eat. If you don’t know what it is… here’s Wikipedia’s description:

Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles called bánh phở, a few herbs, and meat.

The boyfriend and I headed to an award-winning pho restaurant in DC called… Pho DC (creative name, right?)

BIRTHDAY DINNER | Green Pig Bistro

Green Pig Bistro  VA

I’ve been dying to go to the Green Pig Bistro ever since I got lost driving and ended up passing the place 3 times. It’s always crowded, on a pretty corner lot with loads of windows, and looks like it has a lively bar :) The moment I was asked by the boyfriend where I wanted to go for my birthday, I blurted out the name with no hesitation!

DELICIOUS DINNER | Sequoia on the Georgetown Waterfront in DC

Sequoia DC

One of the boyfriend’s and my favorite places to go is to the Georgetown Waterfront. There are many reasons for this:

1) It’s right on the water (obviously), so it’s beautiful
2) They have amazing restaurants!
3) It’s one of the places we went on our first date for an after dinner drink, so it brings back fond memories

So it was last Friday night, and instead of being the “old” couple that we can sometimes be (drinking wine on the couch, watching a movie, and being asleep by 9:30pm), we decided to mix it up a bit and “hit the town”.

LATEST FEAST | Astronomical Pancake & Waffle House

You know those mornings you wake up and feel as if you could eat just about everything in sight? That was this weekend! After a fun but exhausting weekend vacation with friends, the boyfriend and I woke up with only one thing on our minds… FOOD!

Astronomical Pancake and Waffle House

That’s how we ended up at a place called the Astronomical Pancake & Waffle House. It was seriously ASTRONOMICAL! Not only were we supplied with crayons as we waited for our order (reliving our childhood), we were then presented with the best breakfast feast we have had in quite a while. It wasn’t anything fancy, just a standard breakfast order, but it was out of this world!
