Vapianos

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.

Thai by Thai

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.┬áThe 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.

The Block

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.

 

Sweetwater Tavern

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!
