Who knew that breakfast food could be this amazing? If you have not discovered the Cinnamon Bun at Ted’s Bulletin it is a must try! It is served hot from the oven. Freshly made on the weekends with tons of sugary frosting on top. It is something that you can share with your partner or friend. Or take one home with you. Get there early. They do sell out fast!
Their is something to be said about comfort food. The kind that can take you back to a memory that has been set in the back of your mind. This Matzo Ball soup at DGS Delicatessen takes me back to when I was first introduce to Jewish food by my husband’s aunt. Sitting in her apartment as she fed me some of the most delicious food I ever tasted. I think this soup is the best I have had outside of New York. The matzo ball was fluffy. And it was well seasoned. Usually I have to add salt to give it life but this bowl is perfect. Really warms you up on a cold day.
Simply stated: this dessert is amazing! My coworker had talked about it and told me it was like food crack. So when I saw it on the menu at Againn, I just had to try it. It came in this mason jar which was a great presentation. On the bottom was this crunchy bits of graham cracker crumble that had been baked. As you dig a bit more, there is drizzle of chocolate ganache and my favorite part, the sweet condensed milk that has been caramelized. Then, on top of that was fresh, sweet thinly sliced bananas that are perfectly ripe. Everything is topped with fresh whip cream that is light and fluffy.
My coworker was right. It is food crack! I just want more!
Update: since this posting Againn is closed. If anyone knows were I can get this pie, let me know!
This is just decadence in a cup. You need to order a milkshakes with your burger when you go to Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill, in DC. Thick, rich and creamy. Topped with a toasted marshmallow.
To end a meal at Truckaroo you need something sweet. The choice was this Watermelon Sorbet with Percecco from Sinplicity. It was sweet and refreshing. Especially for a hot August day. They call their ice cream and sorbets “American gelato”. No wonder. Not your typical flavors and great combinations. My friend bought the Mint Mojito sorbet. The fresh taste of mint and lime mimicked a real mojito. YUM!
Also a purchase from Truckaroo and one of the longest lines was Red Hook Lobster Pound. No wonder with the huge pieces of lobster served up Maine Style with shredded lettuce on a toasted split buttery roll. It transports you to a Maine seaside town, sitting outside and smelling the salty ocean air. Tasty!
Truckaroo is held monthly in DC from June to October. It is a food “fiesta” of various food trucks that hit the streets of DC daily. We picked up these Korean tacos from TaKorean. Bulgogi Steak of thinly sliced ribeye steak marinated in a sweet and spice sauce. Topped with the Kimchi Style Slaw and Lime Crema.
