Yesterday for dinner, my cousins and I went out to eat at a new ramen restaurant in Cascades Overlook. The restaurant is located in a very pretty setting. Once you step out of the restaurant, there are many places that you could go to for dessert. There is also a fire pit that you could sit by. The setting is very cute and decorative.
The waiters and waitresses are very kind and there is no wait time. We were given free seasoned peas and they were delicious!
Every ramen item on the menu is twelve dollars. However, it comes with a lot of ramen. I was very full when I finished my meal.
Braised Chicken Ramen
I ordered the Braised Chicken ramen which was good, but the chicken wasn’t my favorite. I would prefer the Vegetarian ramen.
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to Manuramen for some delicious food that will keep you full!
Robeks is a store in Cascades that sells delicious and refreshing fruit and healthy smoothies, as well as acai bowls. The prices are also affordable if you get the larger sizes. For example, for the smoothies, the small is around 5 dollars and the medium is around 6. The medium is also a lot bigger than the small.
My favorite smoothie to get whenever I go to Robeks is the Mahalo Mango.
The workers are also very kind and helpful, and there is no wait time!!
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going for a smoothie or acai bowl at Robeks on a hot summer day.
Cold Spoon sells delicious frozen yogurt, coffee, drinks, and yogurt bowls.
My favorite item to get from Cold Spoon is the Mango Parfait. It comes with mangos, mango syrup, Greek yogurt, and granola. The hot chocolate is also one of my favorites.
The employees at Cold Spoon are very, very nice and will start a good (sometimes long) conversation with you.
The price however, is a little expensive.
The wait time is not long at all and the store is very decorative and beautiful.
Overall, I 9/10 recommend going to Cold Spoon.
Quench is a juice bar that has delicious Acai bowls and healthy smoothies. The workers are very kind and helpful. They can help you choose which bowl or drink to buy.
In addition to that, the wait time is not long at all. The prices are also affordable!
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to Quench after a workout at the gym, or if you are just craving a delicious and healthy drink or bowl.
My favorite restaurants so far are Thai by Thai and Sweet-water. These two restaurants are very different with a big difference in price.
Thai by Thai offers delicious Asian food at very affordable prices. It is not formal at all, and the service is great, will a little to no wait time.
On the other hand, Sweet-water is a more fancy restaurant that offers delicious food. Because of this, the prices are a little more expensive, and I would recommend making a reservation before hand if you won’t want to wait for over half an hour before being seated.
Overall, both restaurants serve delicious food. Although the prices of the food at Sweet-water are a little expensive, it is definitely worth it.
Panera is a great and cheap restaurant to eat at. There are many locations around the world. In Northern Virginia, there is one at the Tyson’s mall, Cascades Overlook, and many other locations.
My favorite thing to order at Panera’s is their Macaroni and Cheese. It also comes with a side, of either apples or chips.
The wait time is also usually not long, unless you go on sundays. In addition to that, the waiters and waitresses are very kind and are willing to help with whatever you need.
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to Panera if you are looking for a place with affordable and delicious food.
Tea Break is a Vietnamese restaurant in Sterling, VA. There is a wide variety of items to order on the menu. They vary from pho, to rice, to spring rolls. When I went, I got Pho for a pretty cheap price and it was delicious. I also got the spring rolls which were also very tasty.

The waiters were also very kind and helpful. The wait time was also not long… at all.
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to Tea Break for lunch or dinner if you don’t want to pay a lot of money, but also want to eat delicious food.
Last weekend, I went to Siam’s Spice with my cousins. The food was delicious!!! (We went to the one in Sterling).
For the appetizers, we got calamari and fried shrimp. For the main dishes, we shared fried rice, drunken noodles, and Thai curry. My favorite was the dish with the drunken noodles.
For drinks, we ordered the Thai Iced Tea, Taro Milk Tea, and Mango Milk Tea. I recommend the Thai Iced Tea or the Taro Milk Tea. All of them were only three dollars.
There was no wait time and the food was prepared very quickly. The waiters are also all very kind and welcoming.
The Appetizers: Shrimp and Calamari
Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to Siam Spice for dinner.
Vapianos is a beautiful restaurant in Reston Town Center. They serve many types of foods including pasta, pizza and salads. The price for the foods is also very cheap and affordable.

My favorite thing to order from Vapianos is the Chicken Alfredo. You get a good amount of food and it is really cheap.
Overall I 10/10 recommend going to Vapianos. The wait time is sometimes a little long but it isn’t bad compared to Cracker Barrel.
On Valentine’s day, my family and I went to Burton’s to celebrate. I was surprised at how quickly we were seated. The waiter was also very kind and showed us everything on the menu. There was also a Valentine’s day special menu which we also got food from. I forget what it’s called but I got Salmon. It was very delicious.
The only negative thing about Burton’s, is that the price of the food is a little towards the higher end of the scale. I got an appetizer that was $14 dollars. It didn’t come with a lot of food, just a piece of Salmon. The main dish was $34 for some mashed potatoes and Salmon.
However, overall, the food at Burton’s is delicious, the wait time is not long at all, and the waiters are very kind. I would 8/10 recommend going to Burtons!
