Mark and Dan of The Sporkful had a competition recently over which host has the best version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Believe it or not, one of them actually has Cointreau in it. Take a look and see which ‘wich sounds better to you.

French Fries and….Mayo?

Having recently posted about Belga Cafe and their glorious frites, I figured it was time to acknowledge that proper mayonnaise is, well, ridiculously good.  Admittedly, mayo used to fall into a wide category of food I wouldn’t touch.  This “white and mushy” category ranged from yogurt to cottage cheese to *gasp* whipped cream.  I was so […]

Stuff that looks yummy: Beef Wellington

This amazing looking Beef Wellington was made by my old high school It’s Academic teammate Jennifer Creekman and her sister Caroline Creekman (who is a pastry cook at Chef Geoff’s Tysons Corner), along with their friends Stacy and Em. PS: Who knew that anyone (especially anyone under the age of 100) made Beef Wellington anymore?

A fusion banh mi truck? Intriguing…

The City Paper’s Tim Carman has an interview with Tan Nguyen who owns a new fusion banh mi truck that cruises around Arlington. It’s called Rebel Heroes and it’s interesting to hear Nguyen, who’s obviously Vietnamese, explain why he’s elected to eschew the traditional banh mis seen around Northern Virginia.

New Irish-Deli fusion place savaged in early reviews

A few weeks ago, my email buzzed with news of Star & Shamrock, new Irish/Jewish fusion tavern/deli concept on H St. in DC. We were planning on going, possibly even next weekend, but then Matt Yglesias and Spencer Ackerman of the Internet Food Association just completely demolished the place in two different posts. See some […]

In Search of Moules Frites: Belga Cafe

Located in the Barracks Row district, just a block or two from the Eastern Market metro station (orange line), Belga Cafe shines as a prime example of hearty, delicious Belgian fare.  At first glance, the restaurant is warm and cozy, with tightly packed tables and a neighborhood feel.  The service is prompt and attentive — […]

The Subway Haiku of the Week – Week 2

I apologize to all the loyal Two Foodie Brothers readers for my delay in this week’s iteration of the Subway haiku.  However, the delay has only concentrated my hatred for Subway, culminating in this powerfully melancholy lamentation of Subway provolone cheese.

Can meat give you a hangover? I may have found out the answer this week.

Let me introduce you to Nationals Park’s newest signature concession – the Rough Rider. It’s a massive beef rib served on the bone behind the center field scoreboard.  First of all, let me just make this clear, it’s delicious. Also, there is just something so manly and correct about eating meat off a big bone. […]

If this isn’t a sign of a decadent empire en route to ruin, I don’t know what is

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Bob Evans gravy machine which, thanks to Gizmodo, I learned could be a feature of a convenience store near you. My brother and I both agree that this is utterly disgusting.

Which kind of nerd would you least want to hang out with?

In the wake of this unbelievably obnoxious piece on “Coffee Obsessives” in Washingtonian, who are now the most obnoxious food/drink snobs on earth? Who amongst the groups below would you most want to strangle if you were seated next to them at a party for five minutes?

My top five foods consumed in (or outside) stadiums

Any of you who know me know that I am a fairly massive sports fan. I’ve written about sports since long before I ever tried to write anything about food. So, here is a brief attempt to merge the two subjects, with my personal top 5 list of foods I’ve consumed inside or outside stadiums. Please […]

The Subway Haiku of the Week! — Week 1

I should introduce this new feature before launching right in… in short, Subway sucks.  There is nothing good about that gummy, tasteless, veggie-and-salad laden debacle that they call a sub sandwich.  So, over the next weeks, possibly years, I am going to offer weekly Haikus to describe my feelings towards Subway.  After much meditation and self-exploration, […]

Dunkin Donuts Coffee — Dear God Yes

I want to preempt the people out there who are going to imply that I’m some latte-swilling, Georgetown-frolicking, East-Coast elitist.  (Ya, I’m talking about you ,Wes) I’m not.  The proof is in the proverbial pudding!  (pudding post to follow in the near future) What coffee do I crave by the bucket?  Why, its not some free-trade Ethiopian […]

Our latest eating adventure – Cantonese chicken feet

 Oh, the quandary for Jews on Easter Sunday. What to do? What to do? Virtually everything is closed. If you drive within 100 yards of any church you’ll get stuck in at least 15 minutes of traffic. There are no sports on. It’s a pretty boring day. Thus, Sam and I ventured off to one […]
