Nommin’ Out: Belga Cafe

23 Jan

Located just one block from the Eastern Market metro on 8th and E st SE, this little European restaurant is a solid, low-key selection for your Sunday brunch plans.  First of all, it should be noted that there are NINE different types of waffles you can order.  Yes, nine, ranging from sweet to savory and everything in between.  Alas, I’m not really a “breakfast food” person once it hits the early afternoon brunch hour.  My eye goes immediately to the sandwich section, in which I found this delectable Lamb Burger.  A grilled spicy lamb & chorizo burger, goat cheese, pickle, radish, garlic sauce, on a multi-grain bun is $16, and you can add both fries and a side salad for another $6.

This is definitely not a brunch spot you select for a bottomless drink option or one to heavily imbibe for cheap.  They do have several wonderful variations of mimosas, including grapefruit and orange, for $9 each.

I’ll be back in the very near future to gorge on one of their eight variations of mussel pots.

Check it out!

Nommin’ Out: Medium Rare

6 Nov

My carnivorous people, pay attention. Medium Rare restaurant, originally started in the Cleveland Park metro area of DC, has expanded to Barracks Row in Eastern Market! My coworker, a staunch Arlington-dweller, mentioned that I need to make it a priority on my restaurant list, and a DC recommendation from him is a big deal.  I shared my desire with a fellow steak lover, and made it a dinner stop this week.  Let me break it down for ya: they serve one thing for dinner only.  Its a $19.75 pre-fixed menu of rustic bread, garden salad, and special-sauce covered steak with hand-cut fries cooked to perfection just the way you like it.  The best part? They serve the steak and fries to you TWICE. Your dinner comes in two parts to ensure the steak and fries stay warm and amazing, #thoughtful.  Paired with a $30 bottle of red wine and I was a happy camper!
