Three words: Ramen food truck

It's kind of surprising it hasn't been more of a trend already. Washingtonian brings word of a ramen food truck headed to D.C. Shaku Ramen Bar is from the team behind Far East Tacos. [Washingtonian]

But at least there's a Target?

Interesting observation from The 42 Bus: Columbia Heights development DCUSA has never been fully leases. The shopping center has struggled to attract retailers (including grocery stores), though it's the home for tenants like IHOP and newish addition Zombie Coffee. [42Bus]

Why White Russians are Still Around

Eater National has a fun piece on the influence of pop culture characters on cocktails (think The Dude, Carrie Bradshaw and Don Draper). Hey television writers, want to make the rickey a big thing outside of D.C.? [E]


It's no secret Shaw is booming when it comes to restaurants. Express narrows the field to the restaurants it's most excited about (spoiler alert: Buttercream Bakeshop is involved). [Express]

That doughnut could really use some ice cream

And finally, this dessert from Mussel Bar Bethesda just looks epic. [Facebook]

Check out the dessert! "Voodoo donut with bing cherry ice cream, captain crunch topping and a foie gras glaze! Paired with Anderson Valley's "the kimmie, the ting and the holy gose!" #voodoodonut #mmmbeer
