DC Eats 2.0

I dig you, DC. Thanks for all the new eats (the first DC Eats can be found here)!


Bantam King

501 G St NW, Washington, DC 20003

There seems to be a battle over whose ramen reigns supreme in DC’s Chinatown. When I asked my cousin to try crowd favorite Daikaya with me, he promised that it isn’t worth the frequently over an hour wait, and that his favorite spot is Bantam King.

It’s easy to see why. It was probably the most traditional, legitimate, best ramen I’ve ever had, fish cake and all.


Denson Liquor Bar

600 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004

My cousin being a champ about me needing to take pictures of everything we eat & drink (Him & his stellar pink tie also seen in the above picture, while I have a photoshoot with our ramen). My drink on the left, served in a chilled glass.

This was a recommendation I collected from another participant in the training I attended all week. Speakeasies are my jam, and are also having a major moment in DC. There’s plenty to choose from, but Denson should be on your list.

It’s not too hard to find; no fancy codes or trick doors or all of that, just a set of stairs from street level down into the bar. It’s apparently always crowded, and hovering around the bar is allowed until you can scoop up a seat. The tables will be off-limits. There’s a massive list of wine, beer and spirits, and overall good vibes. If you’re a gin drinker, get “The Delilah.”


I Thai

3003 M St NW, Washington, DC 20007

Sometimes places on a main shopping street are mediocre. It’s likely they get a lot of traffic, but unlikely that they’re good. That’s not the case with I Thai. I Thai is on M Street in Georgetown. While it’s not the most adventurous of culinary experiences, it’s fast, everything is fresh and hot, and it’s the perfect spot if you don’t feel like going very far from all the shopping. There’s a fun bubble tea and smoothie shop beneath it!


Eno Wine Bar

2810 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007

I honestly don’t think I’ve been to a real wine bar before Eno. I’m more of a beer or cocktail kind of girl, but Eno made me reconsider my stance. They have several locations all over the United States. It was the best possible place to spend my last evening in DC sharing stories with a new friend from my training, and my glass of of Italian Sauvignon Blanc was the cherry on top.
