Bon Chonnnnnnnnn

Ok, so first of all, Bon Chon is all of that (and a bag a chips). Yes, I used the old school sayin’ – but I gotta say, this experience was not all that and a bag of chips 😦 It was just three sliders And I did it to myself. I got sliders at Bon Chon. Whoooo does that?! Don’t do that. Ever. Everyone and their mama knows that you go there for the wings or tenders.  It’s just what you do. But nooooo, I had to try something different. Like, yeah let me try the sliders. Smh. Epic fail. And, don’t get me wrong, they were cool but I found myself looking [stalking] at the pile of wings at the table next to me because, like I said, that’s why you go. They put my lil sliders to shame.  So, yes, please, go to Bon Chon. With a group or dolo. But just get some soy garlic or spicy wings or drums or tenders.

Toro Toro DC 

This is a special post for BloomFoodieChronicles.  It’s my first #masterdate of 2017!! Annnddd it marks two years almost to date that I started this whole masterdate thing, thanks to my mom flaking on me and my amazing Bobby Van’s $50 for $100 Groupon. *queue the orchestra* First, for those new to my blog. I adopted the masterdate concept from this picture: Ok. So. Once or 3 times a week. I am in the DC streets. At happy hour. Back to Toro Toro. Toro Toro has been on my list for a few months now. I heard about the truffle fries. I love some truffle fries. Though I masterdate year round, today bc it was disrespectfully cold, I was just going straight home.  I mean, I was. Anyway *side eye* I decided today was thee day I stopped in and experienced Toro Toro for myself. All I can say is: it’s.a.DC.must. Instant fav. All dat. Yes. Yasssss. #thatpart Happy hour. From 4Pm- 8PM. Yes, 8 PM! 🙂 Friendly bartenders. Good menu overall. Good drink options. …


Hear me out guys, four letters – D B G B. My experience at DBGB goes down as my best masterdate yet.   It met all the criteria: Totally random, good conversation with a total stranger, good food.  Happy me. Oh and I caught all the happy hour prices so – ya know, more for less 🙂 I met this lady, her name was Dee, and we talked and taaallkkeeddd about everything from why it’s important to accept an increase in condo fees to avoid special assessments, traveling solo and of course, dating.  It was amazing.  Her #1 piece of advice was “Always hold your standards. always…” We talked for almost 4 hours! Oh, and I ate! Dessert: Chocolate Toffee Brownie Food: Fries, Maryland Crabcakes Drinks: Cocktail of the Day (I forgot the name but they all have interesting names) and  couple glasses of red wines (I mean, they were $5)

Oh, AND – How about it has thee Best Happy Hour voted by Me.   4 PM to Close  thru Labor Day. Where [else] they do that at?! And no that wasn’t a typo. You’re welcome 🙂 Anywho… I grouped a few of my favorite visits in this one post.  I only sit at the bar. All food pictured is from their Bar Bites menu. My top food picks are the Sun Dried Pork and the Crispy Chicken Wings. SO GOOD!
