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!
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.
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.
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!
Thai by Thai has lots of choices of delicious foods that you can choose from. I like ordering the Drunken Noodles. My favorite thing to order is the Kana MooKrob, which has pork with Chinese broccoli, a side of rice for 11.95.
The service is also really good. The people there were all very nice and got me whatever I needed. There is also close to no wait time. They take your order right when you’re ready, so you just have to wait for the food, which comes out in about five minutes. The restaurant is next to Coco’s and is very small, but cute and cozy.
Overall I 10/10 recommend eating at Thai by Thai if you want to try something new or like Asian food.
Everyone knows what Chick-fil-A is. It is a very affordable fast food restaurant with great food choices, and is most commonly known for their chicken. My favorite thing to get is the eight count nugget meal. The meal consists of the nuggets, fries, and a drink. My favorite thing to get in the morning is the four count Chick-n-Minis meal. The meal consists of the nuggets with bread, hash browns, and a drink.
Overall, Chick-fil-A is a great fast food restaurant with delicious food, and is very budget friendly.
Sweetwater is a somewhat fancy restaurant that has delicious food. Since the restaurant is kind of fancy, the prices for the food is a little pricier than the food at IHop, or Zoup. It has a wide variety of foods like salads, sandwiches, seafood, chicken, pasta, beef and ribs, and of course, desserts. My favorite item on the menu is the Short Smoked Salmon Filet, which is $21.00. It comes with marinated and smoked salmon, hickory with broccoli, mashed potatoes with dijon cream on the side. It is so tasty and filling.

Even though the food is marvelous, the wait time can be very long so I highly recommend making a reservation beforehand. If not, you might have to wait at least an hour before you get seated. When you are seated, the server brings out a bowl of Ozzie rolls with butter. The Ozzie rolls are so delicious. If you have a chance to try them, you should, and will want more. Besides the wait and price, Sweetwater Tavern is a great restaurant that serves delicious food!
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!!
