Calling all foodies: Go on, dish


Are Georgetown Cupcake’s sugarbombs your essential D.C. eat? Or are you more a chaat sort of foodie? (MARVIN JOSEPH/TWP)
You’ve scarfed down late-night half-smokes at Ben’s Chili Bowl and supped at every food truck from the Fojol Bros. to D.C. Pie Truck. And when you’re in the mood for something high-end, you dive into the crispy palak chaat at Rasika and drive miles for the impossibly creamy cannoli at Pizzeria Orso. So we’re asking you: In 150 words or less, what is your most essential D.C. dish?

Tell us about the lobster roll you can’t go a month without, the cupcake that’s worth an hour-long wait, and the Salvadoran pupusa and Ethiopian tibs you think everyone should try. Whether it comes from a food cart or a four-star restaurant doesn’t matter. All it has to be is the most necessary bite — or, yes, sip — you think this town has to offer. (Save yourself the trouble and skip Ben’s half-smoke; it’s already on our radar.) We’ll feature the best in an issue dedicated to D.C.’s essential dishes.

Be sure to include your name and city so we can give you credit when these reader favorites appear in Weekend and the Going Out Guide.
