WHEN IN WASHINGTON, DC | Valentina Duracinsky: WHEN IN WASHINGTON, DC

WHEN IN WASHINGTON, DC

I stayed with my cousin in Bethesda, MD earlier this year. It was March, my spring break – my much needed spring break – and I had never met my cousin's daughter Gabi so that was one of the reasons I flew down for the week. Turns out she's the cutest and one week was not long enough! Ideally this post would have been written while I was there, and up on the blog by April but I kept putting it off, and then forgetting about it, until I decided enough was enough. It's freakin' November, I don't know what's wrong with me. Anyhow, we went out a lot and ate so many delicious things. My cousin was nice enough to take me to all these different places that served lobster rolls (because Washington is so famous for their lobster rolls?! ahem). See, I'm always craving lobster rolls. Here are the places we went to...

Luke's Lobster
Rather normal prices for lobster rolls (and other rolls) for a place in DC. Good tasting! I wanted more. Maybe the roll could have been a bit bigger. Only complaint (but isn't it always).

Found this place by accident one day. Lucky accident. It was delicious & interesting ice-cream. Again, slightly on the expensive side but so good!

One of my cousin and his wife's go-tos. Pho, and other amazing things. I got an incredible seafood salad in a pineapple as you can see in the picture above. Seriously loved it and have wanted it again ever since.

Another favorite of my cousin's. This peruvian place was fantastic. Fancy looking but not overpriced. Good service, good food. Ceviche is one of my favorite dishes ever, but I usually have it Colombian style. Peruvian style is delicious too! 


Red Hook Lobster - V Duracinsky
Red Hook Lobster Pound
Very fond memories of this lobster roll. It was so worth it. We looked for the location of the food truck that day, took the subway there, ordered two lobster rolls (yikes, price) and wished we had all the money in the world to order several more. Or better yet, to have a personal food truck follow us around for eternity, meeting our hourly lobster roll needs... one can dream. 

Vapiano
Such a fast pace and cute chain. Everything I've had here has been good. Their pizzas, their salads, their drinks. Inexpensive and perfect place to meet a large group of friends for sangria and a fun night out.

I loved the tilapia tacos here so. so. so. much. The first time my cousin and I went, we split a lobster roll and the tacos. The second time (because I needed a second time) I just got the tacos. It was the highlight of my georgetown shopping afternoon. So good!! 

Georgetown Cupcakes
I've been told there's another cupcake place to look out for (but the person couldn't remember the name) as well. I'm not usually a cupcake person but during my week there, I ate about 4 cupcakes. My favorite was the salted caramel. I can't sell it enough. Try it. Try it. Try it.
