Are you referring to Ping Pong? It's delicious.

DC has a lot of good food, I ate at this killer ultra-hip Greek/Lebanese place last time I was there. Can't remember the name. Also some good places in DuPont area.

It could be Ping Pong. I will check it out, thanks. When I walked by I was suspect. I really like full Kee
ans chinatown express. The dim sum in the ABC building in Rosslyn isn't bad.
I like the peking duck at "Pecking Gourmet" and their Lamb chops.

Kind of out of touch with DC nowadays, but I disagree about the eating around here. I think the food scene is pretty damn good in the metro area, although I do end up driving a lot. Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Indian, Jamaican, Chinese, Lebanese, the fucking taco trucks on Veirs Mill Road, El Pollo Fucking Rico- really, I'm a happy camper for the most part. Ray's makes it easy to get a fantastic steak. That is not to say there isn't a dearth of great pizza (Mia's seemed decent the one time I went there) and bagels, and not nearly enough bakeries- the Japanese scene is kind of lacking, there's no really awesome Peking duck, I kind of think fine dining is a joke in this city, too, but we aren't New York.

I like living near DC. My neighborhood in Rockville is very nice, and my neighbors are all pretty well educated- it seems like everyone on my street has at least a masters degree, and PhDs are pretty common, too. None of these folks are really into anything resembling 'fashion'. I get the impression that their idea of fashion is dressing tidily.

I forget whether anyone else has mentioned it, but Pizzeria Paradiso is probably my favorite spot in G-town (and pretty much the only reason I ever went to G-town at all). Intolerable in the summer when it's overrun by summer associates and their ilk, but good pizza, awesome staff, and consistently amazing beer list (even if it's now overshadowed by Churchkey). Words cannot express how sad I am to miss this event: http://www.eatyourpizza.com/spend-a-...andbryggeriet/

best bakeries IMO are in nova. my favorite is heidelberg http://www.heidelbergbakery.com/ in arlington. great, great pastries. georgetown cupcake is shit. i am a pizza paradiso fan, but i had a terrible experience at their georgetown location a couple months ago. nothing but good times in dupont though. -

Oriental Gourmet is a step above the other Amero-Sino Foodstuffs places around here - I like it. There's a great dim sum place and a great Sichuan plac (real sichuan pepper!) out in...oh, Chantilly or somewhere? However, their names escape me. I don't know how you guys can keep passing up Pupatella and I am ashamed that only one person has mentioned el pollo rico. For people saying DC is a shit city...have you ever lived in a shit city? Just because we're not New York or Los Angeles doesn't mean we're below, oh, Buffalo or Memphis. Also, for my internet fucking creepy guy debut, shoreman, were you at the Paint it Black show on Saturday night?

I have always thought, based upon an admittedly small sampling, that the Dupont Circle location of Paradiso has superior pizza to the Georgetown location. Now that the Dupont Circle location has expanded, the beer selection at the two places is probably comparable.

bonchon is truly awesome chicken and is a somewhat bizarre ordering/calling/etc experience. no one at my table could eat even half their wings due to the heat.. had a funny beer ordering experience too. considering you order in milliliters i think. almost got a minikeg....and didn't realize it until she was carrying it to the table - then had to tell her i made a mistake..:-/ incredible though, really. wish my friends can/could handle the heat so I can go back.. As for dimsum...easily accessible. big. smells kinda like pee (3). F'iig awesome. Fortune in Seven Corners. Nuff said

incredible though, really. wish my friends can/could handle the heat so I can go back..

the soy garlic ones are not spicy but still quite good. much prefer the spicy ones though..
