Best New Food Truck In D.C.

Best New Food Truck In D.C.

As you know by now, I, like many of you, am a big fan of the D.C. food trucks.  However, as the concept and practice of the food truck continues to spread throughout the city, I have been growing slightly concerned that the standards of what a good food truck is might be slipping.  I was beginning to fear that as certain food trucks gained a strong reputation, that they might be getting less concerned with their product.

That was my thought process.  And then I had Sabor’a Street.

The bright yellow truck blasting Latin beats and serving up Latin American cuisine is the real deal.  After opening in late February, the truck has gained steam quickly.

National Pancake Day Means Free Pancakes at IHOP

National Pancake Day Means Free Pancakes at IHOP

Tomorrow IHOP is celebrating National Pancake Day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. by giving away one complimentary short stack! In return for the free flapjacks, IHOP hopes customers will consider leaving a little something behind for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. IHOP raised more than $2.1 million last year, and has a goal of $2.3 million this year. IHOP began its National Pancake Day in 2006, and since then, has raised $5.35 million for local charities and has given away more than 10.1 million buttermilk pancakes. Don't miss out!

Best Salad I've Ever Ate: Dupont Circle

Best Salad I've Ever Ate: Dupont Circle

I feel kind of weird about this "Best Of" article.  Why?

Because of the fact I always write about how D.C. is the city of the hidden gem and that I don't believe I've ever written a "Best Thing I've Ever Ate" article about a chain restaurant.  

Regardless of the history of this column though, today I break the mold, and firmly stand by my statement that the Monterey salad at Chop't is the Best Salad I've Ever Eaten in or around Dupont Circle.
