Fairfax ScoopIce Cream • Fairfax, United States
Expect a bit of a wait during weekends!
Plan your dinner reservation 30 mins before sunset. If traveling with baby, try to not bring a stroller because tables are close together.
Small but decent selection of korean food, household items. Weekly produce deals (today was $0.99 strawberries).
Summertime means Naeng Myun (only available after May and after Noon $9.95). They don't offer any ban chan except kimchi but its pretty good. Decor/atmosphere is lacking but overall a good value.
Great playground but bring sunscreen, hats, and water. It doesn't have much shade many and can get quite windy.
Mix tart with lychee flavors and top with mango pop pops!
Up for an adventure? Come alone and get seated with other ramen lovers.
In the spring, enjoy their cherry blossom inspired mochi, summer means orange mochi, or just savor chocolate mochi all year around. $9 a box (16 mochi)
I made my own "greek" version of surf & turf: start off with lamb meatballs then enjoy the halibut as your main course. End the night with the sundae with extra whip cream.
My favorites are the sweet potato twists and the pain de chocolate
Order the mushroom tofu soup (medium spicy) and the cold noodles (add a touch of mustard) and share between the two. The hotness of the soup and the ice cold of the noodles work well with each other!
Pastries galore but if you need low carb option, try the frittata and drip coffee (under $10 total)
Tried the "Gone Fishing" menu while waiting for the kitchen to open for dinner. 3 adults ordered the guac, cerviche, tuna and bean salad, & fries. Portions are HUGE and tasty so we skipped dinner.
On weekends, try to get there before 915 am to avoid long wait.
I like the alcove in the back. There are easily accessible power outlets there so you can charge while using your mobile hotspot.
Decent neighborhood ice cream shop.Specialize in vanilla lovers vs. chocoholics.
Lame: people smoking at the playground & playing dice right outside. Go to the park on valencia between 19th/20th & walk towards the soccer fields. There are several jungle gyms, slides, and swings.
Fried spring rolls are pretty delicious when you use the ingredients to make a lettuce wrap out of your rolls. Pho w/ brisket was flavorful with plenty of meat and fun to add pickled onions.
