Mi Vida has been on my list of restaurants to try ever since the Mexican Ambassador said it was her favorite restaurant in Washington DC. Recently I was in the Waterfront area and took the opportunity to try the place. Mi Vida is as good as the ambassador said.
I was in Mt Pleasant heading towards a festival when I happened across Mt Desert Island Ice Cream that appeared quite popular. I made note of it and returned after the festival. A sign proudly declares "Fearless Flavor." Mt Desert takes that seriously, as they have flavors that can be found nowhere else. I now have a new favorite ice cream shop.
I had a meeting with friends in the Mt Vernon Triangle area of Washington DC, and we were looking for a quick bite to eat beforehand. We found a wonderful little coffee shop that was exactly what we were looking for.
Georgian food is one of the more unusual types of cuisines that you can find in DC. Not from the state of Georgia, mind you. Georgia the Eastern European country. Supra has been a main stay of DC for years. But recently the owners managed to open a second restaurant, Tabla. Both serve superb food.
I was in the mood for some British pub food. After some searching I found an authentic looking one right in the heart of DC: Elephant & Castle. So that is where I went. I am glad I did.
There's a relatively new ice cream place in the Shaw area of Washington DC that makes ice cream on the spot using liquid Nitrogen: Nicecream. It does not get fresher than this!
A classic, 52 year old diner can be found in Washington DC's Capitol Hill, just a few blocks east of the Capitol Building.
Ben's Chili Bowl is the most iconic of all restaurants in Washington DC. If you have not been there, you have not eaten in DC. It has been a fixture on U Street since the 1950s.
I love ice cream and will stop to have some any time of the year. Here are some of my favorite ice cream parlors in the Washington DC area.
Blending Hawaian food with Mexican is not the most obvious cuisine fusion, but a new restaurant in Dupont Circle serving up tacos Hawaiian style shows that the combination can be dynamite.
