I Eat My Way Through DC

Well, I went to DC. I didn't get as many shots of the architecture as I would have liked, but I sure got a lot of pictures of all the food I ate. Some of it was good, some of it was not so much, but all of it shall be posted here.



Ugh... airplane food....





Cooked fish roe with bacon.



The ubiquitous lobster roll. Also, my white balance was not off, the lighting was just very orange.



I thought this building was cool. Old 1800s building with a streamline moderne renovation.



Duck egg with bacon, potato crisps, and a salad.



Antelope with chestnut puree.



Georgetown row houses. Quite a pretty area.



I forget what this was. Something to do with foe gras, I think.



Steak and foe gras.





Deconstructed eggs Benedick.



Gussied-up buffalo wings.



Peanut soup.



Peanut butter jelly with foe gras sandwich. Came with a glass of milk.



Said milk.



Dupont Circle row houses.



Deviled eggs, prepared normally, with salmon, with crab, and with lobster.



Guess.



More not so good airplane food. Bye DC!

Good photos and no doubt many of those meals were delicious, but no Ben's Chili Bowl, street meat, or Amsterdam Falafel? I give this an incomplete.

Additionally, I'm not accusing anyone of anything and we're glad to have all the tourists here in DC, but as tourist season is upon us in our nation's capital, if you ride metro, remember to stand on the right of the escalators. Thank you very much.

Damn, you ate well!

But some of the best eats aren't at gourmet restaurants.

You don't skimp on meals. If you're ever in Ottawa will you buy me dinner?

Food looks great.



Is that a bottle of sprite to compliment steak and foie gras? A pairing of each dish with complimentary architecture would be awesome.

I actually really did want to go to Ben's Chili Bowl, but I just never made it there. Next time.

Well, being that I am not old enough to drink, that would be a sprite to complement the stake. Also, the paring each dish with architecture is a fantastic idea. I think I'll do that next time as well....

Looks nice! I would also recommend Old Town Alexandria and Capitol Hill(the actual neighborhood, not government land) for both architecture and food

A few ranty things to add here: Feel free to ignore, locals.

Not directed at anyone in particular, but tourists in general...

Also about Metro: PLEASE don't spend an eternity figuring out the farecard machines! They are simple- you put the money in, if its too much, press the down arrow. Press the big button. Remove farecard and your change. This is directed at you, stupid tourist in front of me yesterday. You made me miss two trains waiting for you!
And don't cluster around the escalators on the platform- you block the flow of people and the cars farthest from the escalators are usually the least crowded.

Furthermore: Know where you're going. Also downtown yesterday- a very old and frail-looking couple saying they will walk from a restaurant in Capitol Hill to the Lincoln Memorial. That's over 5 miles of walking...
