BEST PLACES TO EAT AROUND DC !!! PART 1

Written By Neerakar on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 | 9:29 AM

All rite! Here the thing, how much time have you spent thinking about what kind of food to eat and where to go? With restaurants crawling like insects, it is indeed a hard job to pick a good place to go eat. Thai, American, Sushi, Chinese, name it and there are a lot of places to go to. Here is my pick of the best places to eat the type of food you are craving for. My ratings are based on taste not price.

Italian:

What do you look for in Italian food? Variety, Authenticity, Ambiance. Look no further. Da Domenico in McLean, VA is one of the best places for Italian food. Very nice ambiance, the food is delicious and the wine selection is pretty impressive too. Perfect place for a nice Italian night out with your friends or your loved ones.
I give this place a big thumps up! and a 4.5 star rating.

Chinese: 

Pork Pan Fried Dumpling from A&J 

A & J Restaurant- Annadale

Now when I say Chinese, I am not really implying to Kung Pao Chicken or Sesame Chicken. That is not really Chinese. If your looking for something authentic and bang for your buck, head to A&J at Annadale. Their selection ranges from Pan Fried Dumplings to Pig Ears. They have a very large variety of food and all you food junkies who are adventurous will definitely get a kick out of this place. Remember this place is Cash only. 
I give this place a 4.3 star rating.




Thai:

Thai square is one of my favorite places for Thai food. I was introduced to this place by Suvesh & Ashish and since that day I fell in love with it. Its very authentic and reasonably priced. I want to quote Phyllis C. Richman , The Washington Post " You can keep your insider's stock tip, your private sale at Neiman Marcus, your hot pick for the daily double. The secret that moves me to action is a little-known restaurant with authentic food.." Check out this place next time you come to Arlington. 
I give this this place a 4.7 star rating.

Sushi:
CAFE ASIA - ROSSLYN & DC 

Cafe Asia Double Dragon Roll 
Not everyone enjoys Sushi and not every place serves good Sushi. Its just something of an acquired taste. I have tried a lot of Sushi from several different places but I have to say, although Cafe Asia doesn't really specialize in Sushi, their Sushi rolls are very good. Specially, their Dragon and Firecracker rolls are amazing. Next time your there some and you wouldn't be disappointed. When your there also try their Mi Goreng which is variation of Malasian Noodles. 
I give this place 4.7 star rating. 


American: Southern Comfort 
ACADIANA- WASHINGTON DC
One of my favorite - Jambalaya

Southern food for me is something that has the real american ring to it. The heart of American Cuisine for me is Southern and there is no other better place to go for Southern food than Acadiana. Located in NW Washington DC, Acadiana brings all the good joy and taste of that Southern food which is sometimes hard to find. Although, it is a bit pricey, the food there is amazing. You should definitely try it out.
I give this place 4.8 star rating.

  1. Nick- great post! I love the shout out to my Cafe Asia sushi roll obsession. But you should correct that to read "Double Dragon" roll. Everyone knows that good things come with the double D. Ask Suvesh. Also, let's see some pizza place reviews.
