Readers are coming through with their hands-down favorite dishes in the District, but our list of essential eats wouldn't be complete without some love for the hole-in-the-wall restaurants in the suburbs. Who has the best pupusa, banh mi, pho or pizza in Gaithersburg, Reston or Falls Church? What's worth the trek to a remote strip mall in Silver Spring? Tweet us at @goingoutguide, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it in the comments. Tell us what makes your essential dish so mouth-watering, and be sure to include your name and city, which may appear in an upcoming issue of Weekend.
