Dish Up! - My Week 14 in Review

This is Dish Up! - My Week in Review, a weekly roundup of pictures from my everyday life. I had a busy week of eating out with groups of people who love food. I had an Ethiopian lunch with the 'Grub Club' at work and ate at Tanglewood Ordinary with a group of fellow food bloggers.  

This is the injera, Ethiopian bread, from Addis Ethiopian Restaurant on 17th street.

This past January, one of my co-workers started a 'Grub Club' with the purpose of getting a group of adventurous eaters together to try different cuisines. This month we ate at Addis Ethiopian Restaurant. The owner prepared a buffet of 5-6 different dishes for our group to try.  It was a great way for us to sample a wide range of Ethiopian food. Everything was delicious.

I finally got around to trying My Noodle & Bar, located in the basement of an apartment building on the 1600 block of Monument Ave. The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary.

I had the Phucket Noodle ($8.50 at lunch, $10.50 at dinner), stir-fried flat rice noodle with red pepper, tomato, pineapple, green onion and fresh basil leaves.

I was enchanted by the display of sea bass and snapper at Whole Foods. One of these days I'll get around to cooking a whole fish.

If you want the classic southern experience, head over to Tanglewood Ordinary on River Road (It's about a 30 minute drive west of the city). This is a family style restaurant where you pay a set price ($20 per person) and you get all you can eat. Our table was covered with bowls of fried chicken, roast beef, country ham, mashed potatoes, stewed tomatoes, green beens, creamed corn, black eyed peas, cole slaw, and biscuits/corn bread. You also get your choice of dessert; I had apple cobbler a la mode. Everything was exactly what it should be - buttery, rich, and comforting.
