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...

Dish of the Week: Quang Pho

I often struggle to write about what I eat. One reason is because I don’t write very good. Another: drop a plate of food in front of me and I’ll be halfway through it before realizing I should, you know, take a breath. By then I’ve lost all concept of...

Dish of the Week: Pimento Jamaican Kitchen One Love

I have had everything on Pimento’s menu. Even the Ting — #lovemyting. I ate there twice a week for a summer, and I am barely exaggerating. It’s so good. Their bowls have everything you want in a balanced diet: rice, beans, meat, slaw, fried plantains. But wait, you say, I don’t want...
