PHO DC, Washinton DC

Locate in the heart of Chinatown, Pho DC produces a very high quality PHO and some great appetizers. The Shrimp wrapped in bacon are a great starter to warm up with prior to the PHO.  This is an attractive clean restaurant to enjoy your traditional PHO with many fresh ingredients. I highly recommend PHO DC.

Full Kee is what you expect to find in any Chinatown in a large metro area such as NY.  The food is all home made and excellent. The Noodle soup with roast pork is amazing! Wonton are made fresh daily and very good. This is a great place for a good and cheap meal.

Uni a Place for Sushi, Washington DC

Yes! there are several great Susi restaurants in DC. Uni is locate about 6 blocks away from my favorite Taro. The fish is pristine and wasabi fresh ground. They have a great assortment of hot and cold appetizer including on of our favorite, beef tataki. They also feature a great selection of Japanese beer and sake. The surrounding are not as cool as Taro and perhaps the food not quite at the level of excellence but still indeed excellent . Uni is a much friendlier restaurant that allows for interaction between client and chef also more reasonably priced.

You cannot go wrong at Uni!

Simple and fresh TEX MEX at a very reasonable price.

This is not gourmet dining however the service was excellent . The food was several steps above your local Taco Bell however it was not the finest TEX MEX either. I would recommend it for something fast and cheap around Washington DC.

Pitango Gelato, Washington D.C.

I have decide to change my rating system for Gelato and rate Italian Gelato in a separate category because to compare it to anything else is unfair and places most US products in the poor category.

Fine Italian Gelato the homemade kind found in the small family run shops is beyond compare, it simply puts all others to shame . It possess a creamy yet not thick texture with flavors at explode in your mouth. I have yet to experience this in the US. I have come very close and the establishment that came close has even  flown in a Gelato consultant from Italy to assist them. I believe the next time I return they will have their product at a level of a descent  Italian product.

Pitango Gelato uses all mostly locally scoured and  all organic ingredients.
They charge a premium price for these ingredients, is it worth it. Well if you desire to eat an organic diet it is to others it may not be.  At 5.60 a scoop it very expensive snack for a family.

My verdict; I tasted about six flavors. They where very eager for me to try the nut flavors. The nut flavors or shall I say lack of flavor where very disappointing. The Chocolate Noir was good and I even ate more than one spoonful which is saying a lot because I usual taste a spoonful and throw the rest out because I’m so disappointed.

Rating: US/Fair-Good
