Washington, DC

I know that’s an odd question. But it stems from this tweet I got the other night from Aly:

“Don’t sleep on the Timber Pizza Co empanadas. With pineapple sauce.”

So I, naturally, associate Timber with pizza. But now I’m dying to try this empanda. Anyway it got me thinking of other foods I might be missing out on. I still don’t think this question makes a ton of sense so just tell me the best food item, on or off the radar, available in D.C. today!

When diaryofatravelingeatie tagged us in this photo:

“The most beloved tacos in the DC Metro are at a gas station.

Taco Bar is at the Shell station on Fields Road in Gaithersburg, MD. Here, taco tortillas are doubled (x2!), and the tacos are so stuffed that the filling falls out when you take a bite. The tacos are served unadulterated – just meat and tortilla. You can load them up how you want at the toppings station. Besides tacos, they have any matter of other Mexican entrees and sides, such as burritos, tortas, and refried beans and rice.”

I knew we had our next Friday Question of the Day. Especially after last week’s epic best breakfast sandwich discussion. So where’s your favorite spot – including the ‘burbs? Read More

I’ve taken to messing around on night twitter just talking about fun stuff. One thing I mentioned this week was growing up eating scrambled eggs and fried salami. And apparently that is a very common food for ashkenazi Jews who grew up on the eastern seaboard of the US. So it got me thinking about what foods you guys grew up eating. Particularly foods associated with your heritage. What’s the best family foods you grew up eating?
