My birthday is in a few weeks and it falls on a Saturday. I'll be in DC for the first time and am looking for something unique to do on my birthday. We'll have a car, so anything in the area is fine. I'll be visiting my sister and be with a friend who grew up in Baltimore.
Poor grad students. No $100 meals please.
I'd be happier eating a pupusa from a truck served to me by a grandma who doesn't know any english than I would eating at a fancy place with your own personal waiter. Likewise, soul food from a garage, ect. I know DC isn't the strong hold of that sort of thing, but I'd like some ideas in the area.
This is what I already have planned for the week, but I really want to do something cool for my birthday. Most meals I'll be cooking for my sister.
Thai-xing, DC- 3 (really want a white hot), the open air fish market.
Also, if any restaurants offer anything really unique, please chime in as well. We're already planning on eating chapulines at the mexican place. I grew up home butchering and being a minority because I wasn't an immigrant, so the "weirder" the better.
