Dish of the Week: Cacio e Pepe

You can make it at home, they said; nine dollars is too much for just noods and cheese, they said. Well, fuck. Pardon my French, but this Italian pasta dish was so flipping incredible, I’m still walking around in a fog, muttering “that’s a spicy a-meatball,” to strangers and feral cats...

FDCDC #17: Acqua Al 2

Even for someone like me who spends an inordinate amount of money eating out, there are certain places you save for a special occasion. Acqua Al 2 in Eastern Market is one of those places. It’s as Fancy Pants as Fancy Pants Italian gets. The special occasion for the evening...

Dish of the Week: Wise Acre CSA Hash

I love this dish so much. Like the Southside last week, Wise Acre’s CSA hash is my breakfast kryptonite. It has everything I want and nothing I don’t: Eggs. Potatoes. Veggies. Meat. Cornbread. Sauce. There’s even what looks like a thin layer of broth at the bottom of the bowl...

Dish of the Week: The Southside

World Street Kitchen has been a staple in my rotation for a while. I love their rice bowls, and the red curry chicken burrito is the best mashup this side of Cooking By the Book. I had never been for brunch, though, and an out-of-town friend wanting the board-certified FDC...

Dish of the Week: Iron Door Doughnut Holes

We joke at FDC that more is more (as opposed to less is more #explainingjokes). I used that once to convince the guys to forget how full they were and indulge my desire for, well, more. And it stuck. There’s always more room in my stomach somewhere, except when it comes...

FDC #53 : Surly Pizza

  I love the parchment paper. Out of all the things that could endear me to the relatively new Surly Pizza Upstairs (“because it’s on the second floor”), the parchment paper that slides between the pizza and the tray it comes on is a real Cinderella story winner. It’s the UMBC...
