Takeout Tuesday - Bethesda Bagels' Black History Month Bagel


 

These amazing looking bagels are available every weekend this month at Bethesda Bagels in honor of Black History Month, with half of all sales going to the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture.  I picked up a few to enjoy/freeze, and they are even more vibrant in person!  Be sure to head over to pick these up this weekend if you're interested.

Takeout Tuesday - Sunday Morning Bakehouse's Valentine Box

How cute is this Valentine's Day themed sweets box from Sunday Morning Bakehouse?  This was a special pre-order along with a few other themed items this past weekend, and I loved the variety of sweets that the box included.  This box included a brownie, two meringues, a Linzer cookie, a brown sugar cinnamon "Pop-Tart", a homemade "Oreo", two sugar cookies, and a Rice Krispie treat.  So festive and everything I've had so far has been delicious!

Takeout Tuesday - Dough Boy Fresh Pretzel Co. Pop-Up at Carmen's Italian Ice

A while back Carmen's Italian Ice in Rockville hosted a Dough Boy Fresh Pretzel Co. pop-up outside their store, and it was a great day of sweet and savory takeout!  I honestly didn't know too much about them but after seeing their offerings online I knew I had to check it out.

On the top we have their regular salted pretzel bites and the bottom container is their Rad Knots with pizza and garlic flavor.  The soft pretzel bites were crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside.  Even the "plain" salted ones were buttery and delicious with every bite.  And of course the pizza-based Rad Knots had that great tang from the marinara sauce and Parmesan cheese throughout.  

Currently Carmen's is still carrying the regular pretzel bites along with a side of their delicious custard on their menu, which sounds like the perfect combination of sweet and salty treats!

Takeout Tuesday - Lady Gaga Oreos

A different sort of Takeout Tuesday this week - I am so excited that I found the new full packs of the Lady Gaga Oreos!!  I finally found the mini packs at 7-11 recently, but I was really looking forward to finding these bright pink packs once they were out in stores.  

The package is a bright metallic pink color so it was very easy to spot on the shelf! The cookies are pink cookies with green creme to go with the Chromatica album theme, but taste-wise they are just different colored Golden Oreos (thankfully, haha).  I love that they did a special collaboration for the Chromatica album in such a fun and creative way and of course I always love trying out a new type of Oreo cookie!

Takeout Tuesday - ChiKo Bethesda

A big welcome to ChiKo on their newest location in downtown Bethesda, MD!  I am a big fan of ChiKo but haven't been able to enjoy their food as I have not been traveling to DC at all recently.  I was very excited when the news came out about their MD location, and of course I had to get takeout on their opening night last Friday!  

Online ordering is very easy to navigate and two things stood out to me: being able to choose a later pickup time, and the option to add utensils.  The utensil one might seem small but since I am always eating at home I always feel like it's such a waste to have a bunch of utensil packs going unused.  

Now onto the food! I got three menu items that I have enjoyed before and they were as delicious as I remembered.  I am really looking forward to getting more takeout from them soon!



Dry spiced double-fried chicken wings


Soy glazed brisket


Half-a-cado salad

Takeout Tuesday - Shake Shack's Korean-Style Fried Chick'n Sandwich



As soon as I saw that Shake Shack was bringing some of their South Korean Shack's Korean-inspired menu items to the US for a limited time I knew I had to go check it out!  I got the Korean-Style Fried Chick'n sandwich, which consists of "Gochujang- glazed crispy chicken breast over our white kimchi slaw featuring Choi's Kimchi Co. on our classic Martin's potato roll".

I already love the crispy chick'n sandwich at Shake Shack so I knew that this one would be great, to be honest. Adding a sweet spicy glaze with the Gochujang and a kimchi-based slaw sounded even better! My only complaint is that I wish there was more kimchi slaw included because I think it would've added even more texture.  If you're interested in trying the Korean-style menu be sure to check them out soon as they're only available for a limited time.

Takeout Tuesday - Bethesda Bagels' Christmas Bagel


 

How fun are these Christmas-themed bagels from Bethesda Bagels?  I picked these bagels up the week prior to Christmas and they were such a fun and delicious way to make breakfast at home feel more festive.  They still taste like plain bagels, just with swirls of color throughout.  

They also had blue swirled bagels for Hannukah, and red and blue swirls for 4th of July previously.  I love how creative they are with these and I hope they continue to make them throughout the year!
