Five Bites on Friday

Today's Five Bites come from Lee Moses (at right), a Columbia Heights resident who works for DOD. "I spend my weekends, after cashing those government checks, huddled up at the fantastic new Red Derby, which would be No. 1 on my drinks list," he says.

1. Tostones con mojo at Rumberos

2. Moscow borscht at The Russia House

3. Huevos rancheros at brunch at Asylum

4. Lax pudding at Domku

5. Oyster loaf "Peacemaker" at Louisiana Express

I would have to disagree about Red Derby's drink options. Sure, they have great microbrew versions of Miller Lite. But, I will give it up for their sweet potato fries...good stuff.

I'm pretty sure Louisiana Express doesn't exist anymore. They folded about a month ago.

The oyster po boy at Acadiana is tasty, but a totally different species.

Oh, man - The Russia House. Now that's the ticket! Haven't been in ages; must be getting old.

Sietsema mentioned LE closing in his chat a few weeks ago, then said you'll have to wait for details til this weeks Ask Tom column so that he wouldn't scoop himself.

I'm still holding out hope that they'll turn up in a new location. But I would have put the softshell po'boy on my list, especially as the season is nearly upon us (if we still have any crabs in the bay that is)
