Food Alert: Thai Rolled Ice Cream

There’s a new food trend to Washington DC, Thai Rolled Ice Cream! So far there’s only one in DC, called Icy Code in DuPont circle. I was lucky enough to stumble upon it as I was looking for a cool place to wait for the DC Pride Parade to start a couple weekends ago.


This is the Matcha Honey Ice Cream. Half the fun is watchhing them make the ice cream in the first place. The ice cream roller takes the milk mixture and pours it onto a cold metal surface, mixes items into the cream, and then rolls it into beautiful and delicious ice cream rolls! Icy Code has pre-selected ice cream flavors with pre selected toppings as well. 

While there’s only one in DC proper, there’s another Thai rolled ice cream shops in the DC metro area. Class 520 is in Rockville, Maryland. 


Mad Mango has is mango and strawberry ice cream with a choice of 3 toppings. I had to go with pocky sticks, what self respecting pocky lover wouldn’t? Same process as Icy Code, you order first and then they make it in front of you. It’s a show and food rolled into one! 

If I had to choose who was better, I wouldn’t be able to. Both Icy Code and Class 520 are great in showmanship and flavor. I hope Thai rolled ice cream is here to stay because it is delicious!

Hello! It’s been a while, I know

It’s been a long time since I posted on this blog. A lot has happened in 4 years, gasp, I know. Between changing careers and growing up, life just moves so fast for me. If you’d like to see what I was up to, you can check out my food instagram where I kept posting and getting better in terms of food pictures. My instagram is ewongfood.

So what have I been up to? Well there’s that pesky thing that keeps me afloat called a job. I also moved the Great Nation’s Capitol, Washington D.C. It makes it possible for me to take pictures of awesome food like this:


This is a Smoked Salmon biscuit from ButterCream, a little bakery on 9th st NW in Mount Vernon Square next to the Washington Convention center. It’s a quaint little place to grab breakfast or a snack and some coffee. You’ll find me enjoying the wonderful food and coffee in peace and quiet on Sunday Mornings. They serve Compass Coffee, my favorite.

I got this lovely little thing as my breakfast along with the medium roast from Compass to get me started and awake enough for a wonderful day at Awesomecon! I geeked out all day!

Fagers Island @ Ocean City

The family goes to Ocean City in October almost every year so that we can take our dogs to the boardwalk and the beach. It’s a beautiful time for the family to bond and laugh at our dogs. This year, my oldest sister decided we just HAD to go to Fagers Island to see the sunset. Too bad it was raining so we didn’t see the sunset at all.

Fagers has two sections. There’s the fine dining section and the lite fare. The lite fare has sandwiches, a raw bar and other regular bar food that you would expect to see in Ocean City. The fine dining section is truly fine dining in prices, nicely dressed servers and food.

Anyway, now for the important part of any restaurant, the food!

My family and I made reservations for the fine dining section. We started out with two appetizers, Fresh Crisp Calamari and Fresh Eastern Shore Fried Oysters. The oysters were my favorite. The calamari on the other hand, I’ve had better. But the three sauces that came with the calamari would delicious!

The meals were all delicious. I had the prime rib and it was just divine. It was the tenderest, juiciest, best prime rib I have ever eaten and the fresh shaved horseradish was a treat. Although I think I prefer grated horseradish. I got to eat a bit of the duck and that was my favorite dish of the night. It was so succulent! Mm, still dreaming of that duck!

If you are ever in Ocean City for a special occasion, go here!

Family Reunion Lunch

Family Reunion Lunch

What do you do when you have a huge family get-together and don’t want to go to a restaurant? Grocery-store roast chicken and random assortment of food!

This is always a good idea for when you want to save some money. We had so much left over food too.

Food: Rotisserie Chicken, corn on the cob, watermelon, tuna and salmon sushi, roast beef (under the watermelon)

Birthday dinner at Amalfi Italian Restaurant

Amalfi Ristorante Italiano has delicious food and a great atmosphere. We came here for my birthday and they were really friendly! Our waiter explained the family restaurant aspect, it was cute. If you are big on organic foods, then this is the place to go. The prices are organically priced too, unfortunately. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Easter Meal 2013

Prime Rib

Today is Easter. The day that Christians celebrate the day Jesus rose from the dead. Today, my family usually has a huge meal with Steaks and Ham and all kinds of sides. But, this year everyone was too tired and we decided to go to Longhorn Steakhouse instead. My Catholic Brother-in-Law loves steak on Easter since he has to give up meat and other stuff.

You are looking at my meal, the Prime Rib with mashed potatoes and I also has Asparagus. It was delicious! The prime rib was tender and the sides were so much better than most of the other steakhouses in the area. I think only Outback Steakhouse is better. I always get raw horseradish to go with my lovely meal, but Longhorn got it wrong and gave me the horseradish sauce. I got that corrected quickly though. If you are going to the Longhorn in Germantown, go ask for Oki. He was our server and he was nice. He seemed new, but I think he has a lot of potential. He was very sincere and he tried to keep out drinks filled even though he was a little off. He’ll get better with some experience I think.

I give this place 3.5 out of 5 stars.
