Takeout Tuesday - Temari Japanese Cafe's Chicken Karaage Dinner


Temari Japanese Cafe on Rockville Pike has been one of my go-to restaurants for years, and one of my staple takeout spots since last spring.  They have been doing such a great job with consistently good dishes packed up really nicely for takeout, as you can see in the above dinner!  

I usually split things up to last a few meals, so it's a great deal in addition to being delicious.  The salad especially is packed really tightly into the container and is a big "meal-sized" salad, with a delicious dressing on the side.  Chicken Karaage (Japanese fried chicken bites) isn't something I should be eating normally (oops), but it's one of my favorites and always hits the spot!

Takeout Tuesday - Sweets By Caroline's Macarons at URBNmarket Pike and Rose

There were a lot of great vendors at the URBNmarket held in Pike and Rose recently, including Sweets By Caroline's amazing macarons!  The "regular" macarons all look great but the character ones are on another level - so cute!  I'm glad I got there early to get my pick of the whole selection, especially since it looked like she sold out in two hours.  I could see why she sold out so quickly - the macarons were all so fun to look at and the character ones were so detailed.


The macarons all tasted as good as they looked and were the perfect afternoon treat in the middle of my work days.  This URBNmarket was a great chance to check out vendors that I haven't seen in person before like this one, and try out some delicious treats at the same time!

Takeout Tuesday - Green Tea Custard from Carmen's Italian Ice

I normally stick to the mango Italian ice at Carmen's Italian Ice out of habit, but I recently saw green tea custard on their menu and had to try it!  It was creamy and rich with a sweet green tea flavor and I really enjoyed it.  I like green tea sweets in general to begin with, but I think this would be an excellent choice for anyone that wanted to try something out that's less of a direct green tea flavor.  As you can see there's always a huge variety of flavors to choose from, so it doesn't hurt to venture out from your usual order once in a while!
