if you're ever in dc, go to the silver spork.

i mentioned briefly in our cherry blossom outing post last week how we swung by one of our favorite areas in dc, eastern market, and grabbed a bite to eat at the silver spork. if you're ever in the area, you should certainly check it out. 

we didn't actually get a chance to eat inside because we had piri with us {but from what yangkyu says and from pictures online, the atmosphere sure looks cute}. instead we got to people watch from inside our car while enjoying their amazing sandwiches, donut and a coke in a vintage style bottle. we also grabbed a roll of bread which we nibbled on with piri.

yangkyu for sure loved the jambon beurre with sweet gherkin {ham, european style butter & sweet gherkins on fiacalle} and i had the turkey & provolone on sourdough with dijon, tomato, red onion and arugula {yum}. and the funny thing about the donut. the night before i kept saying how i wanted a donut but couldn't make up my mind if i wanted it enough to go out and buy. then we were bored and started playing a game -- you know how you write something with your finger on someone's back or arm and they're supposed to guess what you wrote? well i wrote donut. it was the only thing on my mind! we didn't end up going for a donut run but i must've said it enough for yangkyu to go grab one at the silver spork {he's a good man}.

we love eastern market during the weekend and we'll sure be going back to the silver spork soon. 

but this weekend, we'll be donating some clothes to goodwill {i recently purged our closet again} and doing a little thrifting myself {i'm always in the look out for some unique decoration piece for our home} and perhaps some hiking. that should be loads fun. 

what do you have planned? hope it's a good one. have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I need to eat again, that sounded lovely :))) I have been purging my closet as well, lots of bags to go to the donation box. Some I've kept to up-cycle them. But, it feels good to have more space :))) I hope you have a wonderful weekend xxx

  18. Your sandwich looks super yummy, Silver Spork seems so cute and quaint - love that they have donuts. Speaking of which, your husband was pretty awesome for reading into your breadcrumbs and getting you that donut, so cute! I have a shoot, a date, and an apartment tour planned for this weekend. I hope yours is awesome!

  26. Love gourmet sandwiches! Your choices sound delicious. We have recently found also a good sandwich place in Barcelona, although I think Silver Spork will outshine our find, glass Coca Cola bottle, they won me over already :) Haha, love the writing on the back game story, it has been a while since we played!
