Popcorn Soup

Rose's Luxury

One of the most amazing foods I have tried recently is the Popcorn Soup at Rose’s Luxury in Washington, DC. This restaurant is currently the number one restaurant according to Bon Appetit Magazine. So, we headed to the restaurant and after waiting outside for a little over an hour (no reservations accepted) we were seated at a cozy window seat. You feel like you are having dinner at your grandmother’s house, just delightful. From the vintage drinking glasses to the mismatched silver, the atmosphere is very warm and inviting.

Now to the Popcorn Soup, one of the first things we ordered. It arrived in an oversized shot glass with popcorn floating on the top of the soup. The closest description I could glean was a combination of movie theater style popcorn soaked in cream, strained and heated. Sounds too simple for such a delicious soup. I am sure I missed something in the description because this soup was one of the most wonderful things I have tasted. Just delightful. Instead of trying to recreate this at home, I will head back to Rose’s anytime for this pot of deliciousness. What a treat!

Food Trucks

IMG_1929If you have ever passed a food truck and wondered what the excitement is in ordering from a food truck, trust me, stop by and check them out.  Recently, we hosted a party and had the event catered by a local food truck.  Hands down, it was one of the best parties we have hosted. Fresh hot delicious chicken sandwiches with condiments and hot doughnuts proved to be the perfect casual dinner. Food trucks offer you the ability to host a party and leave the cooking to others. It also is great since all of the service wear is disposable. I highly recommend a Food Truck event in your future. Not having a party? Not a problem.
Food trucks are everywhere and many times post their locations on social media. I am a strong supporter of Food Trucks and their contributions to the culinary landscape.
