Laap gai chiang mai - Little Serow
Chicken larb, offal (liver), lanna spices. Tasting menu $45
Little Serow, Washington DC

I’ve never had chicken larb with liver added before and it was delicious! The spices they add are simply amazing and I loved every bite. I love eating food with new twists that completely changes my appreciation for the original dish.

Pho ga – Pho 75

Pho ga - Pho 75
Chicken noodle soup. Served with rice noodles, bean sprouts, jalapeno, lime and basil. Regular bowl $6.95
Pho 75, Arlington VA

It was nice to have a really delicious and cheap meal this time around. The broth at Pho 75 was pretty good (not the best I’ve had, but pretty good). This is a basic restaurant with quick service, and they only take cash. It’s pretty popular but they seem to get the people through quickly.

Benedictberg – DGS Delicatessen

Benedictberg - DGS Delicatessen
Poached eggs, DGS smoked salmon, latkes, sumac hollandaise. $12
DGS Delicatessen, Washington DC

This was another disappointment. The latkes were over-fried and greasy, and the eggs were poached hard. They may have been sitting under the warmer for too long(?). That would make sense since the service was SO slow. I wasn’t a fan of the sumac hollandaise either.

Bottomless mimosa - DGS Delicatessen
Bottomless mimosa. Yeah right! We would finish a glass but the server was never around to give us a refill. They should really call it “bottomless mimosas if the server feels like taking the time to do his job”. #lame

Strawberries and blueberries. $5.95
KC Cafe, Washington DC

After a full day of sightseeing and walking everywhere, we decided to grab a quick snack at the Kennedy Center before catching the sunset from the rooftop. This fruit tart was pretty good and paired well with wine for a nice, relaxing break.
