Take a trip around the world of nomnoms in one day with the Taste of Fenton Village event in Silver Spring, one of our favorite suburbs of DC. Enjoyable annual food crawl at some of the best local family-owned restaurants. It was great to enjoy so many dishes from different cuisine like Thai, Greek, Ethiopian, French, Italian, and so much more. We got to try dishes from a few of our favorites and explore some new additions to the area. Not sure if it was there last year, but we were totally in love with several music bands around the area. Add such a fun atmosphere to the event and area. Here are some of our favorite dishes from the event.
Baklava @ Big Greek Cafe (5 NOMs)
It’s like kissing a greek god when you are eating Baklava, a greek dessert from Big Greek cafe, our favorite gyro place. Who said you couldn’t eat dessert first? Especially when it’s a honey nut goodness like this. This would make any fan of overly sweet things fall in love with every bite. Crunchy layers on top with gooney honey and nut layer at the bottom. It’s always great to enjoy a nice sweet bottom ;). It’s so sweet that eating the whole thing might give you sugar overload, so it’s perfect for sharing with friends. However, we are sugar junkies and would easily eat this whole thing up. What is even more exciting is that they now get even more great desserts from New York that we can’t wait to try.
Gyro @ Big Greek Cafe (5 NOMs)
IT’S GYYYYRO TIME!! Get excited because we are at one of our most favorite gyro places in town. Every gyro here is pure joy. You can just taste the high quality of meat. If you are given a food taste, you can always tell Big Greek Cafe apart. So unique and flavorful, no place can match this. Nice a big portion, too, one of the only places during the event that had full-size portions. You can’t beat the $5 price for a gyro that is so big and juicy. Plus, you can get it for such a low price every Wednesday.
We are going all cheese with a Cheese Pizza from Pacci’s, a Neapolitan pizza place on Georgia Ave. This personal pizza is all about the thin crust and a whole lot of cheese. Normally I’m not big fans of red sauce, but with so much cheese, it made us a happy nomster. Pretty light pizza, so we didn’t feel the need to take a nap.
Bubble Thai Tea & Ruby Balls on Ice @ Ruang Khao Thai (4 NOMs)
Let’s get bubbly with some balls!!! Enjoying a tasty drink like Bubble Thai Tea and Ruby Balls dessert. Ah, both looked so good as we walked in, so we couldn’t just order one dessert and went for two. After all, you can never have enough sweet things in your life. This was a great combination between Thai Ice Tea and Bubble Tea. So much sweetness and goodness. Ruby Balls, now that’s the dessert we would order just by the name alone.
Nutella Crepe @ Fenton Cafe (4 NOMs)
The only way to end an even is with some super sweetness like this Nutella Crepe from our favorite local crepe place. It was great to see their space after the expansion, with so much more seating and tables. This place gets jam-packed and popular in the mornings.
