Takeout Tuesday - Kiin Imm Thai Rockville Pike

I'm not even sure what was stopping me but I FINALLY tried out a local favorite, Kiin Imm Thai for some delicious takeout!  I wanted to try something besides a meat-centric dish, so I ordered the Godzilla fried rice, Larb tofu salad, and Pad see ew with tofu.  

Everything was really delicious, and as you can tell that the portions are generous!  I have no idea why the Godzilla fried rice has that name haha, but it had lots of seafood and tasted great.  The two tofu dishes might seem repetitive, but the Larb tofu salad had a strong vinegar-y flavor that made it quite different from the noodle dish.  As you might imagine I had these for many meals in the following days, but definitely not complaining since it was all delicious.  Weekend dinners seem to be quite busy for them, which is nice to see during these difficult times.  I will definitely try them again soon, especially since it took me long enough to get over for my first visit!

Takeout Tuesday - Butler's Orchard Farm Market

As the weather has been getting cooler, of course I had to fit in a visit to the Butler's Orchard farm market like I do every year!  While some of their events are modified due to the pandemic, the farm market is still open with proper precautions.  

Of course the main draw for me and a lot of other customers is their cider doughnuts, yum! They freeze great so I had no issue buying a full 6-pack haha.  In addition to these doughnuts, they have pies, pumpkin rolls, and other small baked goods as well.  I also picked up a big bag of Fuji apples which were delicious! I love seeing all the fresh produce as well as the seasonal items they carry in the store - such a great local spot to celebrate fall!

Takeout Tuesday - Call Your Mother Trolley

I haven't had the chance to try out Call Your Mother's original location in DC, but luckily for me they currently have a trolley located in Bethesda, MD!  I have gone a few times and have really enjoyed what I've tried so far.  Online ordering is available in addition to ordering at the trolley, which is great especially on Sundays when they are more crowded.  I've tried a couple of their sandwiches, and they are delicious and packed with lots of fresh ingredients that all work great together.  Their whole menu is very creative - definitely not the standard bagel shop fare which is a nice option! 

The Gleneagle - Candied salmon cream cheese, cucumbers, crispy shallots, seasons greens on a Za'atar bagel

The Royal Palm - Plain cream cheese, smoked salmon, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, capers on an everything bagel

Takeout Tuesday - Poyoteca's Pollo Saltado


I recently had an appointment near the new Poyoteca location, so I thought this was a great chance to go check it out.  This is their second location, and it is located in the Fallsgrove shopping center in the space previously used by Cheeburger Cheeburger.  Although the majority of the dining area is closed currently, it was a nice and open area while going through the ordering line.  

While their big draw seems to be the Peruvian rotisserie chicken meals, I decided to try the Pollo Saltado meal for my first visit.  This was a very generous portion of well-seasoned chicken, vegetables, rice, and steak fries on the side for good measure.  The sauces that came with my meal were also great and a nice way to change up the flavors partway through my lunch.  I'm not in the area much these days but I will definitely keep it in mind for filling and delicious chicken!
