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!

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!
