DC is like a big playground for adults. Ever since the weather got nice, I've spent every weekend mostly outside, riding my bike from place to place, meeting up with friends and stopping for snacks, music, or to sit in the sun along the way. It’s pretty great, and this weekend was no different.
|Yucca Con Chicharron|
singapore style beef stir fry/togorashi aioli/pickled cabbage
|Crispy Chicken Wings: prawn glaze/lime/cabbage slaw|
I’m having a hard time picking favorites – the yucca fries were unreal, as was the pork belly-yucca mash under the chicken. Yummm and the chicken wings.
|Char Sui Chicken Breast|
pork belly-yucca mash/anise tomatoes/garlic mojo
|Chile Crab Legs: watercress salad/chili glaze/carmelized plantains|
|Malanga Ice Cream: mango mousse/toasted coconut tuile|
Saturday was what has become my typical weekend day-in-the-sun: coffee from Peregrine enjoyed sitting on my front stoop, biking to a friends’ backyard for more sitting outside, then yoga (Bikram for the first time in months! I am sore.). Post-yoga, LOTR-Emily and I finally made it to Union Market for ice cream (the creamery is only open on Saturdays, and for some reason I’m always there Sunday afternoons), and it was just as good as expected. They have regular and soft-serve, but the soft serve is literally their regular ice cream, just churned into smooth rich and creamy deliciousness.
Then we headed back to my apartment for more stoop-sitting, and watching the sun-shiny spring-timey world go by.
Sunday I went on a pretty epic bike ride up to Bethesda, then back through Rock Creek Park. It was a beautiful day for a ride, and biking the closed-to-cars-on-the-weekend roads in RCP was so fun! Sunday evening I got on my bike again and rode up to a friend’s house for some grilling followed by the Drum Circle.
My legs are a little bit tired, and my arms are a little bit sunburned, but all in the best way possible. Hope you had a good weekend too!
