Ikko Sushi

Ikko Sushi has become my family's favorite local restaurant. You can find Scott, Morgan, and I parked in front of the sushi bar almost every Friday night. Hands down Ikko provides the freshest sushi in the DC area. For us it is not just about the food but the experience, especially as local customers. Ikko was Morgie's first restaurant outing (at just one week old) and now almost three years later he is always greeted by the head sushi chef with a "Sushi Boy"shout out and big smiles from  the owner Stacy and her waitstaff. As South Silver Spring residents we desperately wanted this business to succeed hoping that it would bring more restaurants and retail towards our end of the city. Over the years we have fostered a relationship with Stacy and her husband Leo, as Scott developed their website and continues to work on it when needed. Not many start up restaurants could survive in Ikko's location, especially four years ago, but their success is a testamen

Korean Spicy Pork Belly (Dwaejibulgogi)

Spicy Pork Belly (Dwaejibulgogi) and Bulgogi  (Photo Courtesy of  Chirocky6 ) If you are looking for authentic Korean BBQ recipes to make at home here is a "spot on" recipe for Korean Spicy Pork Belly  from Maangchi . I go to my local H-Mart to pick up all of the necessary ingredients like gochujang. If you haven't been to a Korean BBQ you are missing out, on not only great food but a fun experience. I highly recommend visiting a Honey Pig  in the DC area. The food is tasty, they are open 24hrs a day (except for Mondays) and prices are beyond reasonable. $9.99 for a lunch special that includes a side? Um... yes please! In fact, right now they are offering a 50% off deal on groupon. " Get it while you can, I already grabbed mine :) Last week my high school BFF Nancy flew out from Chicago to run the Inaugural Nike Women's Half-Marathon in DC. She is always up for foodie adventures so we ventured out to the Honey Pig in Ellicott, City Maryland.
