The Block is a building in Annandale, Virginia. Inside the building, there are multiple vendors that sell different types of food in Asia. One of their vendors is Snocream. Snocream is famous for their bubble tea and ice cream. I got the Passion Fruit Boba Tea and the Matcha Oreo ice cream. The ice cream was delicious.

Garlic Noodles with Shrimp
The Block sells food from places like Vietnam and Thailand. I ordered the Garlic Noodles with shrimp from the Thai vendor there and it was very good and tastes a lot like Lo Mein.
There are usually a lot of people at The Block so it may be hard to find seats, especially if you are going with a large group of people. In addition to that, the wait time is a little long but definitely not the worst, compared to Cracker Barrel or Sweetwater.
Overall, I 9/10 recommend you going to the block because the different types of food that they sell there is definitely worth your time if you are going to a smaller group of people.
IHop is a great restaurant and has delicious food. There is one that is located in Cezar Plaza where Coco’s Food and Music and Arts is. They are famous for their delicious pancakes. They also sell other foods like chicken tenders and french toast. In addition to that, they started to sell burgers. Their food is also very cheap and affordable. For example, the Original Full Stack Buttermilk Pancakes costs only $5.79. There is also a deal for cheaper pancakes when you go to eat there early in the morning. My favorite thing to order on the menu is the 2 x 2 x 2 which includes two pancakes, eggs, and bacon or sausage for only $6.59. My cousin’s favorite item to order is the Original French Toast which is $6.59. (The french toast is pictured on the left).
The wait time however differs. But, this is common for all restaurants, and at IHop, it isn’t that bad. Overall, I 10/10 recommend going to IHop for it’s tasty and budget friendly food!!
Cracker Barrel is a restaurant that has a southern vibe and serves breakfast lunch and dinner. The food is very tasty and the servers are very kind. My favorite breakfast item on the menu is the “Momma’s Pancake Breakfast”, which comes with three buttermilk pancakes, two eggs, and bacon or sausage for $8.59.

Even though the food and service is delicious, the wait is very long. When I went on Sunday morning, the lady told me that I would only have to wait twenty to thirty minutes. I ended up having to wait an hour and fifteen minutes to be seated. After I was seated, I had to wait for an additional thirty minutes before I got my food. Overall, the food is delicious, but the wait time is very long.
