I think you're a pretty adventurous eater! I've never seen you turn down anything to try!

If you're looking for one more point, I've got some Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee....

Heh. I should, at some point, try Jamaican Blue. I am currently the envy of my section, having moved my Keurig coffee maker to my office. Mayan Spiced Chocolate coffee - yum!

You left a few bits of my commentary on there.

I don't like Pho enough to take you (sorry), but there're some places around.

Nice list!

Just the bits I agreed with. :)

That's ok - not all that excited about Pho.

K. You had it italicized, so I assumed...

Also belongs on here: something Ethiopian.

Ethiopian I've had - one of my paralegals and I hit the Ethiopian place in Chinatown near Stitch DC and Lush. Pretty good, although she tells me there's a better Ethiopian place in town.

Wait, there's a Lush in Chinatown? And isn't Stitch DC in Capitol Hill?

I had Ethiopian at U St and didn't like it. I think that was mostly the bread, and I gather that varies considerably so perhaps I should try again.

Oops. Meant to say Georgetown. Part of my brain obviously didn't leave San Francisco.

Tsk tsk.

I mean, everyone knows I never get cities mixed up!

I should make bagna cauda. It probably calls for dinner guests, so as not to die of garlic butter.

Death by garlic butter - I've always suspected that when you snapped and went on your rampage, that'd be where you'd start.

*signs up*

We could have a whole Bab 5-themed meal!

Er, sorry.

Snagging to post in my own lj for f-list. I've eaten a surprising number of these myself. Example - all the seafood variations were the result of one very adventurous summer trip to the beach.
