Best Sandwich I've Ever: Adams Morgan/Mount Pleasant

Best Sandwich I've Ever: Adams Morgan/Mount Pleasant

It's Friday and it's hot, so let's just talk food.

My go to sandwich when I am around the Mount Pleasant area is the barbacoa torta at Pica Taco on Columbia Road.

Pica Taco, which has two locations, one over on Florida Avenue near U Street, as well as the Columbia Road location in between Adams Morgan and Mount Pleasant, has all kinds of good Mexican fare.

To me, though, their barbacoa torta sandwich stands out.

The torta is so, so good.

First, the bread gets a nice smear of refried beans and is toasted briefly on a taco press.  

Next, the sandwich is stacked with lettuce, tomato, delicious avocado, and incredibly flavorful slow-cooked, shredded beef.  Other toppings include cheese, mayo, and hot sauce.

Could You Eat This?

Check out the video above which features Jose Tobar of Pica Taco talking about the restaurant's monthly contest.  

Pica Taco, which is located at 1629 Columbia Road NW and 1406 Florida Avenue NW, will host the event again on July 30th at the Florida Avenue location.

If you are brave enough, stop into the eatery and sign your name up for the challenge!

After it was determined that he and Dale Boone had tied, 

 

 

Czerwinski won first place via a one-minute eat-off(you can watch that in its entirety in the video).

Owner Of Rogue States in Dupont Says Burger Shop Will Re-Open Later This Month Under New Name

Rogue States, the late-night burger shop located at 1300 Connecticut Avenue that shut down "temporarily" last October, is on the verge of finally re-opening its doors in the coming weeks under the name “Black and Orange”, according to the restaurant’s chef and owner Raynold Mendizabal.

“We are shooting to re-open the last week of June,” Mendizabal said.  “We're doing some renovation of the vent, so that might go wrong (and delay it) one day or two, but the target right now is the last week of June, and we're driving hard for that.”
