Love the Bardia's!
Super friendly guy, turbo dog beer, and yummy beignets.
The clam and shrimp po'boy makes it onto my DC's Top Sandwiches list. Lightly breaded and fried seafood, perfect remoulade sauce, and a crusty baguette. Deelish.
Just ate there after a long absence. The place is still great. The brisket sandwich is THE best and makes it onto my DC's Top Sandwiches list. Love the communal table. Get their sauce to take home...you'll use it on everything you grill.
This place is great. Excellent food, especially the Tortas, which make it onto my DC's Top Sandwiches list. There's a lot of attention to detail at this place to make sure you get authentically regional food, not a close imitation of such. Only two downsides: There's no A/C, and food takes a while, so if you're in a hurry for take-out, call ahead.
I like Soussi. I don't care for the name, or the fact that it very almost got turned into a Prince-cafe-like sleaze joint. Instead, it rose above to be one of my fav places in the city to sit on the balcony, drink Stella and watch the people go by. Great looking crowd, friendly staff, and pretty darn good food.
In fact, Soussi's Merguez Sandwich makes it onto my Top DC Sandwiches list. Merguez is hard to find in the US, but they do it right. Grilled Moroccan sausage, mayo and proper dijon mustard (plus spicy harissa if you ask for it) on a crusty baguette roll. It's a real treat.
Thanks to my Swiss roots, I've been instilled with a healthy appetite for German cuisine....especially grilled Bratwurst.
Apart from the great German Market in the store and amazing deli selection, they put together a heck of a Bratwurst sandwich with potato salad so good it's like crack. The bratwurst sandwich makes it onto my DC's Best Sandwiches list, even though it's not in DC. If you need bratwurst in DC, go to Cafe Mozart. But German Gourmet is better.
