  1. My heart just sunk when the time ran out and it only appeared there was one dish plated. I do hope there is a rematch. That ravioli looked quite amazing though - wish i could go try it out.
  2. it's on this Sunday. I'm psyched. Next one should be Mike Landrum vs. Bobby Flay.
  3. if you don't wear them much or if the one you have doesn't fit well, they can be. kinda like coach rig (robert loggia) in necessary roughness.
  4. Well I like to sacrfice a goat in the name of Landrumm2000 before I go, but other than that, it sounds like you've got a pretty decent game plan.
  5. Wonderful!! I had a wager with another member of this board that someone would still manage to reccomend Ray's. Not that there's anything wrong the advice mind you, i'm just happy to be up $10.
  6. yes, but what does this even mean?
  7. Wait a second, so you aren't the PR director for BlackSalt???!? Just razzing you of course. Seriously though, I'm curious about this reinvention of tiramisu. What makes this version different from the traditional?
  8. I'm 100% certain that no one born and raised in northern virginia calls it nova. I can't speak to places like Culpepper County or Manassas or other far out places because, well c'mon...Culpepper? If you want to fit in, don't call it nova. Who wants to sound like they are from Manassas anyway? Back on topic: I also like Whitlow's on Wilson and they have 1/2 price burgers on mondays. Northern Virginia is also good for korean food, especially Annandale.
  9. first, people from northern virginia don't call it nova. the community college here is called NOVA, so if someone asks us if we are from nova, we just look at him or her with a confused glance. it sounds like you are asking us if we are from this community college, which is not actually that bad, just confusing. i used to go to shirlington a lot for the indieish movie theater there. it's a nice little area: safe, friendly, and quite pretty at night. the reccomendations above are pretty much spot on. I would like to add that Bistro Bistro has a pretty good brunch and that my brother swears by the carintas fajitas at guapo's. I also think that Carlyle is overpriced and kinda crappy, unless you like menu design by comittee style places.
  10. if it's not too late, the best dim sum is at Fortune in Falls Church.
  11. this is a pretty sweet dilemma. i've also heard good things about maestro.
  12. i would have to vote no as well. i've been to the ones in charlottesville and oakland. it's no better than shitholes like applebees or ruby tuesdays. and not as good as bob's big boy.

    hmmm, which one did you get? sometimes there is a little more well done brisket than i would like, and not enough of the rare stuff. overall i'm happy though. well i kinda wish they would establish an extra large, because sometimes a large just isn't enough pho.
  14. I went in a few months ago on a date and had a good time. the service was a bit brusque, but that's not really so important to me. i'm usually just happy to get served alcohol, given i have the kind of face where i look 15.
  15. it takes a sick mind to think up something like this. RE: miniburgers, i liked them better the first time i had them, when they were called sliders. seriously though, i don't get it. they are little burgers. what's the big deal? i guess if i'm in the mood for a burger, but not a whole one and had several dollars burning a hole in my pocket, i might buy some. it's a fad and it will fade away. the nebuchadnezzer on the other hand....
  16. wow... so does landrummmmm2000 do kid's parties as well? bar mitzvahs?
  17. sounds like the kid is an adventurous eater. i like him!
  18. And I am thinking of going next door to the Indian fast food place, getting some chicken stew with potatoes and green beans, two million bottles of water...and THEN going swimming and getting some sun. Ain't life grand. ← and maybe a meat pie or two?
  19. does anyone in the dc area sell any good meat pies?
  20. i'm at the point where if given the option i order stuff as spicy as they make it. still, i've never gotten anything really spicy. maybe they are afraid someone complaining, or a lawsuit or something.
  21. i have considered this. but some girls are turned off by me slurping down tendon and tripe. fools, the lot of them

    wow, sorry about your horrible experience. even if you were wrong about the fish (which i'm sure you were not), isn't it the manager's job to make sure you have a good experience? and not argue with you? sounds like a shitty manager.
  23. I've always wondered about this. Isn't tripe cheaper than dirt? Why are they always so stingy with it? ← I know, right? Maybe too much of it affects the broth/taste? Maybe it's the labor cost of cleaning and preparing it? (Kinda like chittlins?) One thing about pho though - you eat pho, you smell like pho afterwards. One of these days, I'm going to be really bad and eat pho prior to a department meeting...muwahaha! ← this is why i have a designated pho shirt.
