The most wonderful part about traveling for a foodie like myself is eating. My camera is often cluttered with images of delicious meals as opposed to tourist sites. Call me crazy, but I’d rather look at a photo of a plump pink piece of shrimp over a monument.
On my family vacation to Washington D.C. I made sure to capture my foodie adventures.
I apologize beforehand for not visiting one of the hundred or so food trucks in the city. Apparently they do not run on weekends and the ones that do did not fit into my family’s itinerary. Disappointment still dwells inside of me.
Take a look of the places that fed me well.
Dean and Deluca
I had never been to Dean and Deluca previously. I fell in love with it the second I walked in. It’s almost like the love child of the Harrods Food Hall and Whole foods. I’m pretty sure I heard angels sing when I swung open the entrance doors.
Beautiful Sushi always makes me giddy.
Mac and Cheese blocks
Who needs a stick when you can eat cake in one bite?
I did not try a cupcake but I did receive pleasure just glancing at them.
Rasika- A modern Indian restaurant. Rasika means flavours in Sanskrit. Namaste, their were a lot of flavours.
Avocado Banana Chaat- Cumin, red chili powder, tamarind, date chutney
Tawa Baingan- Eggplant, spiced potato, olive oil, peanut sauce
Calamari Balchao- Red Chilli, malt vinegar, ground spices
Seafood Salad- shrimp, mussels, calamari, pepper confetti, lemon.
Baked and Wired- Donut Cupcake!
Georgetown Cupcakes/ DC Cupcakes
The store had their very own cupcake bouncer. That door didn’t stay open for longer than 35 seconds.
Lavender Earl Grey and Red Velvet
Vanilla, Peanut Butter Fudge, Lave Fudge. The cupcakes were the perfect petit size, light, with an icing that wasn’t too sweet.
