Bargain Bites

Dangerously Delicious Pies

Dessert might just be my favorite meal (and yes, I consider dessert its own meal). The day just doesn’t feel complete without something sweet to eat at the end.  And when frozen yogurt or some cookies just won’t cut it, or when family is in town and we want to go out for dessert, I head over to H Street to Dangerously Delicious Pies.

While Dangerously Delicious Pies also serves savory pies and quiches, I come here exclusively for the sweet pies. When you only make one thing, you better do it right, and Dangerously Delicious Pies typically doesn’t disappoint.

The Morning Roundup 7/23/2012

Hello Monday. I know many of you are dreading the day, but think about all the good food you ate this weekend. Also we got some deals to get your week started right.

Must Buy: Many of you might have heard of the event Drink the District (July 28). We are not involved with this entity, but we support it nonetheless. Today’s LivingSocial is VIP Admission for one. Now what this entitles you to is early entrance to the first session. The event is divided into sessions 12-4 and 5-9. I will personally be attending the 5-9 sessions, but this deal is only for the morning.

The Morning Roundup 7/20/2012

Happy Friday. You’re almost to the weekend. We wish we had some better deals to take you into the weekend, but alas sometimes that’s how the deals break.

Avoid: Another entry in the restaurant/lounge avoid category is Scoutmob’s Panache deal today. Too expensive, excludes happy hour, need I say more?

That’s it for this week. We had another workplace emergency so we’re off the rest of the day. Eat something tasty for us.

The Morning Roundup 7/19/2012

Happy Thursday, you’re almost to the weekend. You can do it! We’ve got some good deals to tide you over until Friday.

Must Buy: What’s better than free? Trick question, nothing. Every now and then Scoutmob throws a freebie out there. Today we have 1 16oz. tea gratis from Tea at The B Spot (1123 Pennsylvania Ave., SE). Now I’m not a tea drinker, but I’m the minority. So get over there and get a free tea.

Must Buy: A lot of the time you’ll see deals that exclude Happy Hours. Today’s Google Offer goes the other way.

Far East Taco Grille: C-C-C-Combo Breaker

Far East Taco Grille is a truck that I have been meaning to try for a very long long time.  The reason it has taken so long is their constant, huge line of customers.  These guys are real players on the foodtruck scene, drawing massive crowds even at major food truck centers where they are not the only option.  So, what do they offer that other trucks don’t?  What do they bring to the table to attract the lunch time horde over and over?  Is it the sexy/sleek all  black truck or the low price tag?

The Morning Roundup: 07/18/2012

A couple of really strange deals today, lets jump right in.

Must Buy:  Scoutmob is offering up a ‘Heavy Metal Brunch for two’ at Rock and Roll Hotel for $40.  Served from noon to 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday, I wasn’t too sure about this deal until I read a bit deeper.  You each get a large entree (either bacon wrapped hot dogs or chicken and waffles), a ‘red rum’ frozen cocktail, and bottomless bloody mary’s and mimosas, all served on the locations rooftop porch.  So what makes this deal a must buy is that you can presumably arrive at noon, eat, and then day drink your pants off until 5pm for just $20 a person.

Welcome to the (Untitled) ETD Mailbag

Good afternoon everyone. We wanted to introduce a new feature to the site today. Since we’ve started this blog, lots of people have been coming to us asking for restaurant recommendations, food recommendations, and general questions regarding DC dining. So we thought to ourselves, how can we turn this stream of questions into something productive? The answer (with, I have to admit, some helpful input from my dad), was easy: Write an Eat the District food advice column!

So here’s what we’re going to do.

The Morning Roundup 07/17/2012

It’s going to be over 100 degrees today, folks. Oof.  Stay inside, drink a lot of water, and make yourself feel better by grabbing one of today’s great must-buys.

Must-buy: Groupon’s deal for $25 for $50 of food and drink at Biergarten Haus is a no-brainer, getting you 50% at one of the best spots to hangout on H Street.  Snap this deal up and spend an evening in their outdoor beer garden, snacking on German-style food and choosing from their extensive beer list.

Must-buy: Today’s Scoutmob for $20 for $40 at Casa Oaxaca is a great deal for some of the most authentic Mexican food in DC.

Seoul Food

Everyone knows that DC has been swept by food truck mania. We’re on board with this fad, 100%. However, sometimes lost in the craze are those trucks outside of DC. Some of the best the DMV has to offer, aren’t actually in DC. We’ve talked about a Montgomery County gem in the past. Today I’m here to tell you about one of Northern Virginia’s finest, Seoul Food.

Seoul Food, as the pun-y name suggests, dishes up Korean food. I know what you’re thinking, Micah, enough with your love of Bulgogi.

The Morning Roundup 7/16/2012

Happy Monday. You made it through the weekend and are with us now. We appreciate that. In honor of you, we have some great deals today:

Must Buy: In Tenleytown we don’t have a lot of dining options. So when of our go-tos has a deal, we take notice. The Capitol Deal’s $7 for $15 to Z-Burger (multiple locations) is going to a big seller up our way. I really like their food. The burgers are good, the hot dogs are better, and whoa those shakes. If I’m getting a shake, I’m getting a chocolate peanut butter malted.
