Wandering around in search of more good food. The good news? It definitely exists in bounds.
First up is Mamoun’s. They had the usual (for well trafficked restaurants) displays of awards won in past years. One of them was best 4AM place. I went around 4pm? Am I doing it wrong?
This grilled chicken plate with pipin’ hot pitas was 10 bucks. It should be enough food for most people, but I still had more appetite. The hot sauce was VERY hot. Would definitely go here again. And you can even argue the “healthy” food angle.
Just walked by this place on the way to another store. I saw the Yelp people like us decal, and it actually intrigued me enough to try “Japanese fried wings.” This is related to Korea fried chicken, but it has more of a teriyaki and sesame seed spin to it.
The chicken wings (teba), fried potatoes (potemochi), and green tea. The wings were very well flavored and textured. The potemochi and green tea were much less notable. The potemochi has a crisp outside with a gooey mochi inside. Definitely want to swing by here again and grab the katsu sandwich that people on Yelp are raving about.
