Vino Volo: DC Dullas Airport Wine Bar

On my way to Dayton I stopped by the DC airport for a 3 hr layover… so I immediately went to Vino Volo.  The past few times I’ve been there I’m there for a few hours before heading to Japan and Taiwan.. so I know the Terminal C & D pretty well.. Vino Volo it is!

It was a bit far from our gate but I needed to walk around and we had over 2 overs of layover – which ended up being 3 since there was a delay.

I was having a dilemma on tastings to choose from – I was in the mood for variety – I was gonna go for a spanish one but the Washington one was recommended so I thought, WHY NOT!!! It was DELICIOUS

These were all rich, bold, juicy and delicious!!!

Artisan Cured Meats

A selection of artisan meats: Coppa, Prosciutto and Salami with whole-grain mustard and country bread

These were yummy.. as expected.. loved the salami the most. For some strange reason I love salami I get outside of what I buy. Everytime I buy it I’m like MEH but when I get it on the meats plate I LOVE IT. SIGH*

Smoked Salmon Rolls

“Their” Signature dish… Smoked Salmon served with succulent crabmeat and crispy crostini

Thees were delicious.  I love smoked salmon.  The meaty crab mayo-based “salad” below the salmon added so much creaminess and even more richness to the crunch of the crostini.. PLUS they gave you HUUUUUUUUGE caperberries NOM! My fav.. salty salty pop in your mouth <3

Broccoli Mushroom PastryStuffed pastry parcels with Broccoli, Wild Mushrooms, Ricotta and Parmesan Cheese

These were flakey, hot and amazing.  As “healthy” as they seem, they’re delectably “bad” for you :] MMMMM…  Light fluffy but oh so satisfying

I also got a cheese plate which had blue cheese, manchego and another stinkier cheese.. creamy..

All recommended :]

Boston Beer Works at Logan…

I always end up at Boston Beer Works when I’m at the Logan for awhile.. the last time was nacho heaven with Katy before my Vegas Birthday trip.  This time I was on my way to Dayton, Ohio.  I adore their eats and they have good booze.. obviously.

On the way to the airport

Bye bye my baby..

I need a beer, or two.. our neighbors were total DICKS TOO

They hogged THREE tables and got mad when I asked for the corner table… I’ll be nice and not post the picture I took of them up.. maybe…

Tired… I woke up at 530am…

Pumpkin Ale & Blueberry Beer

I wasn’t too into the pumpkin ale, a bit too hoppy and bitter for me for pumpkin beers but I always love their blueberry :] Nom nom nom chewy blueberries

Mommy’s Fish & Chips

Fresh Haddock, Lightly Coated & Fried, Served with Hand cut fries, Coleslaw & Sunshine Aioli

Super flakey tender haddock with nice thick cut fries… wish they were crispier but mommy LOVED the coleslaw :]  Didn’t really eat the sunshine aioli but I love love LOVE the name of it.

My yummy but boring Mixed Green with Grilled Chicken
Tons of black pepper and tabasco <3 Just the way I love it…. I can’t help it.. tabasco is better than regular dressing…

Nice full and a little tipsy after chugging most of the beer – mommy only had a few sips…. –  I was finally on the plane to DC – only to drink more.. that’s my next post.. at Vino Volo
