A fantastic collaboration between two of the most prominent emerging entrepreneurs in our city and DC’s favorite artist
Last Thursday I was privileged to attend the pre-opening tasting at Boundary Road. If you read our preview post, you know just how much my taste buds were anticipating this moment. Thankfully they were not disappointed.
Here’s my dish by dish review:
Queso Fresco Arepas with white bean stew – I was glad to see this popular South American dish on the menu. These savory cakes were cooked to a perfect crisp and filled with queso fresco, a mild unaged cheese that paired beautifully with the bean stew.
There are few word combinations that invariably steal my appetite and, frequently, my foodie heart: Rustic, Simple, Uncomplicated, Passionate, Exceptional Quality is one of them.
Our favorite Washington DC ramen restaurant, Toki Underground, is hosting a pop-up event with Eddie Huang from BaoHaus NYC. Chef Erik Bruner-Yang will be working the line with Eddie serving Toki’s ramen and BaoHaus’s pillowy steamed buns filled with the delicious fillings listed below. Erik told us: “This is going to be huge for DC and hopefully Eddie won’t burn the town down.” In case such an event happens, Eddie’s law degree might help them get out of trouble.
