As it gets colder out ramen and pho comfort you and keep you warm. For this fashionplate I decided to check out Jun-Men Ramen Bar with the bestie. I rocked our Natalie blouse in a fun winter floral print. This spot is tiny and doesn’t take ressies, so it’s best to get there on the earlier side if possible. We started with some sake which was good and came in a little can, super cute. We then split the chicken buns which I loved. I want to try so many of the other apps as well. We then decided to split two ramens- the spicy pork bone and the uni mushroom. The spicy pork bone was a classic ramen with broth and was good although not very spicy. The uni mushroom is a dry ramen that is kind of like japanese carbonara. It was delish and super filling. We ended on a sweet note splitting the green tea cheesecake which was more like matcha. All in all it was a yummy meal and great to have a ramen spot in the hood.
For the fashion part of the fashionplate see the ootd deets below. The crowd was mostly locals from the area and some foodies who have heard the hype of this place.
This week’s fashionplate features our new blush bodysuit from the S/S16 line at the new, larger location of Black Tap Burgers on 14th Street. One of the besties and me decided we wanted burgers yet again and thought trying out this larger location was the perfect thing. We went early on a weeknight so it wasn’t crowded at all. I definitely would even check out to watch a game. We started with some beers. My friend got the All American and I decided to try something different and got the Spicy Mexican. This is a chorzio burger and it was very good. They’re fries are always solid. I’ve yet to try a milkshake which is on the list next time at either location. See how I styled the bodysuit below for this fashionplate.
This week’s fashionplate features our gorg new Linda leather trimmed romper from the new Spring/Summer 2016 line at the new hot spot Black Barn in the old SD26 space. Clearly from my pictures you can tell they take their wine seriously too! My dining companion and I ordered some cocktails to start, I started with Pear necessity which was refreshing while my companion got a Jack and coke. We decided to split a few things for our dinner. The black mission fig pizza was delish and a great fall starter. We also ended up getting the cheese souffle which was phenomenal- decadent, rich and creamy. We ended up switching to a nice Malbec before our split entree. We got the strip loin medium rare which was decent but not my favorite. I wanted to try the branzino but I had just had it for dinner the night before so alas we went with steak. We also got a side of the fingerling potatoes which were pretty dope. We wanted to finish things on a sweet note and were not disappointed with our waiter’s recommendation of the chocolate caramel bar. It is reminiscent of Illili’s candy bar dessert- YUMMY!
The service was great. Now on to the fashion part of this fashionplate, there were a lot of suits on a Thursday night probably due to the proximity of Credit Suisse etc. So lots of business dinners and more locals in the bar area. See the complete OOTD deets below to see how I made our Linda romper fall approps with a cute little fishtail braid!
