(Double) Five Bites on Friday

Restaurants come and they go ... and sometimes they up and move, which is the case for two spots on today's Five Bites lists. Read on to find out what popular Vietnamese restaurant is relocating.

Missy Frederick,
whose writing can be found in The Examiner and on DCist and DCFud, offers a Virginia-centric list of bites to start us off today.

1. 54's spicy roast duck and pineapple fried rice at Bangkok 54

2. Qaubili palau (meat sauce and lamb on top of rice with carrots and raisins) at Bamian

3. Shrimp toast dipped in just about any soup, like shrimp won ton and rice noodle, at Four Sisters (Check out Tom Sietsema's Thursday food flash on an upcoming move for the popular Falls Church restaurant.)

4. Pecan-crusted catfish in creamy lemon sauce with garlic mashed potatoes at Old Hickory Grille

5. Cajun fries with bacon and cheese at Dr. Dremo's

Katie, a self-proclaimed ravenous foodie, dishes up the second set of bites.

1. White truffle ice cream with apple-moscato compote and hand-shaved (tableside by chef Todd Gray) Alba truffles at Equinox

2. Veggie burritos from John Rider's now-shuttered burrito cart Pedro and Vinny's (He's reopening down on the North or South Carolina coast.)

3. Tacos al pastor from Taqueria del Distrito Federal

4. Concord grape soda float at Poste Brasserie

5. Crozier Blue Cheese, an Irish sheep's milk blue from the Grubb family farm in Tipperary, Ireland, from Cowgirl Creamery
