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!

Honey Pig Germantown

So have I ever mentioned how much I love Korean BBQ? I have? Well, here we go again. Today I’m going to highlight Honey Pig, which in the DC Metro area, is the king of Korean BBQ. The place I went to is rather new. They just opened a couple of months ago and got horrible reviews. However, when I went everything seemed fine.

Banchan – Korean Side dishes

The Banchan were simple but tasted great. I really love the potatoes. The radish is always a favorite as well. For the main meal, we got the usual, delicious meat!

What you see here is the Kimchi, Pork Kalbi and Bulgogi. We also ordered Spicy Pork Bellym, but our waitress didn’t put that on til last. The reason why I like going to Honey Pig rather than always doing it at home is that even though it is expensive, at least my house won’t smell like barbeque for a week.

Honey Pig has 4 BBQ locations, 1 Izakaya and I think it has a dumpling house somewhere too. This new Germantown location is smaller than the other 3, but cleaner and less smokey than the Ellicot City location and a LOT closer to me than the Annandale or the Centreville location. I think even if I do get rude service, I’d still come here. Check this place out!

New Orleans Cajun Seafood

ALERT!!! Brand new restaurant!!!!!

Name: New Orleans Cajun Seafood

Address: 6168 Arlington Blvd. Falls Church, VA

I was invited to this restaurant’s soft opening yesterday, and it was Delicious!! Beautifully spicy and non spicy crawfish, king crabs, clams and mussels! Now, I am not usually a shellfish kind of person, but yesterday, I fell in love!!!!!

This place is a chain from Orlando, Florida. This place apparently has a well-known following in VA already but this was the first I’d heard of this place. Still, just looking at these pictures who wouldn’t be hungry to go out and try this place?Image

And did you see that crab??? MMMM!!!! That was one of my favorites. My family was having so much fun that when we were eating the crabs and the corn, both my sister and I ended up showered with the juice from the food. Oh, and my mother ended up accidentally putting crab in my sister’s hair. That was sooo funny. To top off this wonderful meal, we were blessed with this:Image

This dessert was just the topper to the most wonderful Cajun meal I’ve ever had. I would suggest if you’re going to get anything most DEFINITELY get the spicy crawfish, the garlic clams, and the Beignet to top the meal!

The sad part about my adventures in food is that in order to survive during work, I have to have food that is quick. I don’t always have time to go out to a restaurant to eat so this is how I survive the week:

Granted, I try to mix it up, I don’t just eat Stouffers, I also buy Eating Right, Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine. It all depends what is on sale that week. But hey! It kind of looks appetizing, right? right?
