What We’re Trying Now

Firehouse Subs

Firehouse Hero
Premium roast beef, smoked turkey breast, Virginia honey ham, and melted provolone. Served “fully involved” loaded with mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a dill spear on the side.

First Impression
The bread was warm, soft, and lightly toasted on the inside, and the sub was loaded with meat. I ordered mine fully involved for the ultimate experience, and it was delicious — the sandwich had the perfect balance of mayo and mustard.

Repeat Worthy?
Yes, and I would want to try other items on the menu, too. It was a nice alternative to Subway and Jimmy John’s.

Jake’s Wayback Burgers

Jake Cheeseburger, Onion Rings, and a Chocolate Milkshake
One word: plenty. The Jake Cheeseburger is served with two patties. The onion rings are thick-cut, and one order is certainly large enough to share. The old-fashioned handspun milkshake arrives in a cold metal cup.

First Impression
I ordered my burger fully dressed. It arrived thick and juicy with a flavor that was out-of-this-world savory. The bun and dressings were fresh and tasty. The onion rings were sweet and juicy inside and crispy (not greasy) on the outside — the best I’ve had in a long time. Finally, the mouthwatering milkshake was a chocoholic’s dream.

Repeat Worthy?
Yes, I’m already planning to go back with some of my girlfriends. I would suggest trying it for dinner — come hungry!

Roppongi Japanese Steak & Sushi

Derby and Red Bull Sushi Rolls
The Derby Roll is filled with deep fried shrimp with avocado, topped with spicy crab, tempura flakes, and unagi (freshwater eel) sauce. The Red Bull Roll is made of spicy crabmeat wrapped with seaweed and rice topped with torch steak and decorated with unagi sauce and Asian seasoning.

First Impression
I love the ambience at Roppongi. The color palette is trendy yet soothing, the restaurant is laid out nicely, the music is appealing, and the menu is diverse. Both of these rolls contain cooked sushi. The Derby Roll is full of flavor and texture; the unagi sauce is the “icing on the cake.” The Red Bull Roll is the meat and potatoes of sushi rolls, as the mixture of crab and seared steak is a must-try combination.

Repeat Worthy?
Yes, again and again.
