after our visit to dc last weekend, our friends robbie + hannah just couldn't stay away.
they had a case of the bemilys.
hannah described our weekend as the food trip... i guess that is what you get with us. i confess that as soon as someone says they will visit, i start writing down places i think would be best to eat. it was also a little cold this past weekend (except for saturday, midday) so being indoors was appealing.
we tried some new places, we hadn't been to... which takes a lot of trust on our part because i especially get nervous since i don't want to disappoint anyone and be responsible for the poor food choice. the newbies were:
momofuku noodle bar (east village, about $10-$15 for noodles). i got these ginger scallion noodles with pickled shitake mushrooms. i would march on down to the east village right now and get more.
we also tried chinatown ice cream factory. really, really rad with flavors like red bean, black sesame, lychee and toppings like mochi. i want to go back. i need to spend more time in chinatown. it's like being in hong kong or just china...? ha.
i kind of laugh to myself how late in the game we became friends with robbie + hannah (just before we moved from dc)... but then again, nyc --> dc is only a bus ride away.
and we can just spend all our efforts, convincing our friends to move up here already.
oh and we saw leap of faith on broadway. i'm addicted to them broadway shows.
