DC FOODIES Go Back To Rockville
REM said not to do it, but we're incorrigible. Let's sample some of the area's very best dim sum in Rockville. We'll plan to line up around 11:30. Bring cash...and an empty stomach! [more inside]
DC FOODIES Raclette
*pounds on table* Raclette! Raclette! Hey DC MeFi, we're one month into 2020! Let's toast the new year over some hot melted cheese. That's right, we're hiking our way out to the Swiss Alps --that is, to Stable in DC's H St corridor for Raclette Thursday. [more inside]
DC FOODIES are not Agora-phobic
...sue me, it's Friday. It's been a while since we ventured into the cuisines of the Mediterranean, so let's stave off the chilly November weather with a comforting meal of Turkish meze at Agora. To avoid any clashes with turkey-day travel, we're doing a weeknight this month. Join us! [more inside]
DC FOODIES @ Bombay Street Food
Hello FOODIES, we didn't nail down a date and location at the end of our delicious Peruvian dinner at Pisco y Nazca, but my October weekends are quickly filling up so I thought I'd throw something on the calendar. Let's head to Bombay Street Food in Columbia Heights. Unlike many of our locations, I've been here before several times and highly recommend it for street food dishes rarely seen in our corner of the US like kati rolls and pav bhaji, plus items from Indo-Chinese cuisine and the most delicious "cutting chai". This location does not take reservations, but I've found it's pretty quiet toward the beginning of the weekend lunch hour. Show up early, help us corner some tables, and we should be good to go!

DC FOODIES Enjoy Libations in a Social Setting
Pisco y Nazca facetiously translates "entre Pisco y Nazca" as "the enjoyment of libations in a social setting" and that's what we're going to do gosh darn it. Come join us for pisco, ceviche, and other Peruvian delights! [more inside]
DC FOODIES @ Mama Chang
International food fans of DC rejoice, we're back for August and heading to Mama Chang, the newest spot in the Peter Chang empire, for family-style Chinese dining in Fairfax. [more inside]
DC FOODIES Ghanaian Gathering
Thanks to all who came out for a wonderfully fun and action-packed meetup at Eden Center last weekend! Let's keep the fun rolling into June with a half-dinner, half-(optional) dance party* meetup at Adams Morgan's Bukom Cafe, where West African cuisine is the name of the game. Come early, stay late for music and dancing! [more inside]

A DC FOODIES Haitian Brunch
Thanks to a very helpful brainstorm at Baan Thai, we decided that in April we'd head to a faraway land...a land of wonders...a land known as Silver Spring, MD. Come join us for all you can eat Haitian brunch at Port-au-Prince and get back home in time for Game of Thrones! [more inside]
DC FOODIES at Baan Thai
Friends, let's do lunch. Let's do lunch at the Thai place that proudly posts its one-star Yelp review from "Alexa" (not me!) because it was "too spicy" and "doesn't even have pad thai". Yes, we're going to Baan Thai (WaPo review) in two weeks--come join us! As always, newcomers and visitors to DC are welcome. [more inside]
DC FOODIES Cherchez la Food
Have we not done Ethiopian food? We have not done Ethiopian food! Let's go to Chercher (the DC location) on Presidents' Day. [more inside]
DC FOODIES Afghan Adventure
Happy new year, foodies! Where we last left off, we were sitting at Pitango with our hot chocolate affogatos (world's greatest invention y/n) talking about getting Afghan food in January. I am thrilled to share the excellent news that lauded suburban spot Afghan Bistro has opened a DC location, Bistro Aracosia. Let's go! [more inside]

July August September October meetup...okay, so it's been a while. We're going to try take 2 on Fava Pot, an exciting new-ish Egyptian place in Arlington, VA. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]
DC FOODIES eat pupusas!
We've spent a lot of time exploring the cuisines of Europe and Asia, but not quite as much in Central America. And yet we're in the unofficial pupusa capital of the US! (As well as the official actual capital of the US.) Let's remedy that with casual Salvadorean comfort food at Ercilia's Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. [more inside]
DC FOODIES' Tbilisi Tuesday
Hey FOODIES, does the hype about Compass Rose's khachapuri make you wonder what kind of culinary wonderland could have produced such a marvel? Do you want to chow down on dumplings all day and all night? Do you work in downtown DC or can you easily get there on a weeknight? Then you are in luck! We are going to Supra for Georgian food (the country, not the state) next Tuesday and hope to see you there. [more inside]
DC FOODIES Brunch It Up
Um, did someone say "all you can eat and drink"? Inspired by Washington City Paper's celebration of DC's rich Trinidadian heritage, we're headed to Crown Bakery in Brightwood Park, DC, for Sunday brunch on the 22nd. (I was going to say we're heading to Trinidad, but that's an actual place in DC and I endeavor to eliminate confusion!) Is Kennedy St. really the new Upshur St.? Join us and find out! [more inside]
DC FOODIES March Meetup Madness
OK, there isn't any actual madness, but this month, we're going to Golden Samovar in Rockville, MD for delicious Russian and Central Asian foods! (But didn't we just have Central Asian food last month, you ask? Yes, and we liked it! Why not more? Or you can just stick to the Eastern European options on the menu.) [more inside]
DC FOODIES take to the Silk Road
For our next foodie adventure, we're heading to the Xinjiang region of northwest China to try some Uyghur food. Actually wait, no, we're heading to Dolan Uyghur Restaurant just outside the Cleveland Park metro, which hopefully should be a shorter trip for most of us... [more inside]
DC FOODIES REVENGE
DC FOODIES is back with a um, vengeance? Yeah, vengeance, let's go with that. We're going to Yechon in Annandale's Koreatown at 8PM on Saturday the 13th. Join us for Korean BBQ and bites! [more inside]
[DC FOODIES] It's a Ripping Day for a Picnic!
Hey strange food lovers of DC! (That's people who love strange foods or strange people who love foods--we don't discriminate.) Rocklands BBQ has confirmed to me via Facebook that their yearly Grills Gone Wild event featuring rare and exotic meats will be March 7-10. Who's up for a Wednesday night picnic? [more inside]
DC FOODIES February brunchytimes
As much as I'd like to make another "LET'S JUST GO TO COMET" shitpost now that James bloody O'Keefe of all people is going after them (it's a long story, google it) I think...I think we should do brunch in February! the thought-fox's suggestion of Yayla (Turkish, near East Falls Church metro) sounded really tasty, and we haven't done Middle Eastern yet. Let's go on the 25th at noon! [more inside]
DC FOODIES November Pizzaventure
Since our last location apparently wants to make America great again (eyeroll), let's focus on what makes DC great right now. Comet Ping Pong is a DC institution and currently under fire from conservative internet nutjobs for stupid reasons. Let's give them dollars for their pizza. Also I want to keep the #cheesygoodness hashtag I used before. [more inside]
DC FOODIES mini meetup: Bonchon!
Hello FOODIES! I think it's safe to say our regular meetups will resume next month, but my October got a little busy. So this time around, I'm just going to call it for a Sunday lunch on the 23rd and an easy-to-reach location--one that comes recommended by several MeFites. Hope you can join me for delicious fried chicken and other Korean goodies at Bonchon!
DC FOODIES get sum dim sum
Hello FOODIES and welcome to the planning thread for our July meetup! (Sorry, I know that title pun is terrible.) Everyone seemed pretty interested in dim sum when we met up earlier this month, and my research suggests that Gourmet Inspirations in Silver Spring, MD (near the Wheaton Red Line stop) is the area's sleeper hit, both better-reviewed and apparently less-crowded than its competitors. For anyone who doesn't know what dim sum is, it's Hong Kong-style brunch tapas and it is delicious! Usually lots of dumplings and pastries are involved. Update: Date/time confirmed, hope to see you there! [more inside]
DC FOODIES are in the jungle, baby!
Hello food fans of DC! We had an excellent Uzbek lunch last weekend (with duffell and CatastropheWaitress' tiny adorable baby!!) and I think it's about time we got back into a routine. I promised metro accessibility, I promised vegetarian options, and I think a great way to fulfill the promise would be at Thip Khao, an excellent Laotian restaurant in Columbia Heights which wants to welcome you to the jungle. Who's in? [more inside]
DC FOODIES Ride Again!
Hello good people of MetaFilter! In between traveling, inclement weather, work, and other social engagements, I have somehow sadly allowed months to pass without a single food-related journey. But never fear. We ride again! And this time, we ride to Uzbekistan. Thanks to drlith's excellent suggestion, I propose that we meet on May 28th for a delicious Uzbek luncheon at Silk Road Choyhona in Gaithersburg, MD. Who's in? [more inside]
