so college students can always tell their parents they're at The Library

Momofuku in DC is a good name too for a ramen noodle shop

16. I routinely eat at FK Your Diet

it's a breakfast/lunch place that serves huge portions of made from scratch goodness. (2 people can easily share one cinnamon bun and the biscuits and gravy are enough for maybe 3 if y'all are small. My wife and I can barely finish it but we manage lol).

The FK stands for "Foster Kids". The owners have at least 3 locations now and the main guy was a fster kid who learned to cook from his foster mother and the prices are a little more than most breakfast type places (although you do get a LOT) because a portion of every ticket goes to help foster kids.

Plus it's fun to say "Let's go to F**K your diet!"

In Asheville NC and surrounding area, which has a good number of progressive and transplanted people, there are a lot of interesting restaurants.

This is a fun thread.

Translates to Fucking Tacos!!

Used to be the name of their (very popular) food truck. Had to change the name to get a license for their brick and mortar store.

It was called "The Frog and Peach."



I heard some people in New Jersey actually opened a restaurant with that name.
I hope, for their sake, that their menu was somewhat more varied than the original.
