My wife, b-i-l, s-i-l, and I are just finishing up a trip where we took our niece back to college at VCU. I pulled a bunch of recent posts from the board and we had some very yummy meals because of it. So, thanks to all the Richmond posters for your help!
We hit Perly's for breakfast one morning, and the atmosphere there was amazing. A very unique restaurant! And the food was top notch.
We also did dim sum for breakfast at Full Kee on our first morning. Some items were quite good (chicken feet and steamed ribs), others just so-so (har gow).
We also went to Comfort for dinner. I really enjoyed the meatloaf. The veggies were all soooooo fresh. And the pecan pie was the best I ever had! Not cloyingly sweet as most places make it.
Edo's Squid was also a destination one night. Again, everything was delicious. One minor gripe was that they refused to let my wife have penne with white clam sauce. The waiter informed us that the chef would ONLY use spaghetti for seafood dishes. So, instead she got the clams without pasta and had the penne with garlic & oil on the side and mixed it herself.
For lunch we made it to VietNam 1. We were actually trying to go to Pho So 1, but the GPS brought us to the other restaurant. Well, serendipity reigned, and we were all very happy with out dishes.
Again, thanks for all of your posts that helped us dine on this mini family vacation!
