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 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]

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]

Delicious Foodstuffs Tour of DC Begins with Fish in the Hood

The winner of our food poll is Fish in the Hood, located in Park View, DC. (Easy walk from Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro.) (Also, potentially, in the 'hood?) I'm going to go ahead and simplify this process and pick out a date myself: Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM. It's near some great bars so a Saturday night should be pretty ideal for anyone who wants a night out on the town. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]
