WME 2013 Holiday Giveaway

This has been such a great year for WME.  I started a new series that recaps my worldwide travels and documented all the unique things I got to eat.  I continued a great relationship with Kitchen Daily as one of their contributors, which forced me to experiment more in my kitchen at home.  I also was nominated and voted for "Best Food Blog" again in this year's Washington Post Express.  To celebrate and give back to my loyal readers, I am hosting a 2013 Holiday Giveaway with prizes from four of my favorite DC restaurants.


First, I have a $25 gift certificate to Toki Underground in the Atlas District of H St NE. Toki Underground is the hip ramen noodle shop featuring a fun and casual menu of Taiwanese-Korean fusion noodle dishes and dumplings.  Toki Underground boasts some great music and art work, as well as nods to Japanese anime and games.  I really enjoyed my meal there and you can read more about my visit to Toki Underground here.  Some particular items that stand out to me include: chicken dumplings pan-fried and filled with ginger, garlic, scallions, napa cabbage, house spice mixture, topped with Toki tare sauce; masumi vegetarian ramen soybean paste infused Tonkotsu noodle soup with seasonal vegetables red pickled ginger, sesame, scallions, nori; and the dessert bento box.
