Rant and Rave: Rose’s Luxury

Rant and Rave: Rose’s Luxury

There’s so much publicity surrounding Aaron Silverman’s restaurant, Rose’s Luxury that one cannot help but be intrigued about it. Whenever I find myself perusing the shops and the streets along Barracks Row, I’ll often see a queue forming outside the pastel green wall so I’ve decided to go ahead and…

Rant or Rave: Thip Khao

Rant or Rave: Thip Khao

It didn’t take a lot of convincing for me to hit up Thip Khao, one of Washington, D.C.’s hottest restaurants that received rave reviews from critics and Yelpers alike. I finally went a couple of weeks ago, on a Monday night, and dined with a friend. We ordered a few…

Rant or Rave: Bad Saint DC

Rant or Rave: Bad Saint DC

The second restaurant in Columbia Heights/Mount Pleasant neighbourhood to feature Filipino dishes opened without much hype a couple of weeks ago. When I read about it, I asked another Filipino friend of mine to see if she’s interested in trying it out with me. She said yes and so we…

Rant or Rave: Rasika, Penn Quarter

Rant or Rave: Rasika, Penn Quarter

I’m a little late to the party obviously, considering Rasika has been “wowing” Washingtonians for a decade now, but I know for a fact that there are locals that still haven’t tried the place. So if you’re in that minority, go, now! Indian food isn’t exactly my favorite. In fact,…

Rant or Rave: The Royal DC

Rant or Rave: The Royal DC

The Royal DC There’s something about The Royal DC that intrigued me from the beginning. First, it offers Latin cuisine, something I’ve had a taste for lately because of my recent travels to South America. Second, was its intriguing bar décor particularly its chosen accessories, like an old fire hydrant…
