we just moved to the Rotonda condominiums near Tysons Galleria/Corner malls and would like to know where people who live around here eat.
ive been/seen most all the mall food choices and none of them are that appealing...would love to know of smaller places or non-chain restaurants people would recommend especially for:
-korean (besides Woo Lae Oak and having to drive to annandale)
-japanese (not tachibana--been there so many times and never loved it...Sushi yama is fine but limited menu options and Konami is okay...)
-homely breakfast/brunch on weekends...places with fresh OJ and eggs benedict and crispy yummy bacon (so far Original Pancake House in Falls Church has been our closest place for this)
-italian (bonaroti in vienna is nice but feels more dressy and not so everyday, any place besides maggianos we can go to thats more homely still yummy)
-mexican (i still miss the days of living in dupont circle and walking to the mexican place along 18th street between Dupont and Adams Circle which name now escapes me...)
-salvadorean places? i used to go to this one called Saritas I think? It was in a small parking lot...kind of close in Falls Church? any other ones people like?
