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 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 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 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]
