Weekend Full of Fun Food in Washington, DC!
Nando's Peri Peri near Dupont Circle - this delicious Portuguese chicken place that I discovered last summer. They also recently opened a 2nd location near Chinatown - so I guess other people have discovered them too! They have different spice levels of their chicken and you have all kinds of options - from salads, to wraps, to roast chicken dishes with sides. Lots of options for everyone - and while I usually go for their mildest chicken it still has a ton of flavor.
FroZenYo is our favorite place and there are tons of places all over the city!
Ella's Wood Fired Pizza near Metro Center/Chinatown. A long list of individual pizzas with all kinds of delicious combinations - and a yummy glass of sangria to top it off! I ended up going for the Pucillo - tomato sauce, smoked mozzarella, prosciutto, and fresh arugula. It totally hit the spot and with individual size pizzas ranging from $10-$14 the prices are reasonable. We called ahead to put our names in for a reservation, which was helpful, since it was a Friday night and the place was super busy, so I would recommend making a reservation if you think of it in advance.
Zengo, in Denver and really enjoyed it - so I was excited to get to another Richard Sandoval restaurant. Even better - DC has Happy Hour specials, unlike Boston!
So thank you to everyone who hosted and spent the weekend with me! I hope to be back soon!
