Sorry to bother, but I am looking for a few recs for the absolutely most exotic meal available in the Bethesda/DC area. I am a food person with a wide-ranging palate. I eat everything. Alas, I moved to Honolulu from Hong Kong a few years ago and while we have okay food in Hawaii, there are only so many choices on our rock. Going to an old friend's wedding in Bethesda next month. I will only be able to try a couple of places.
I've only had Ethiopian a couple of times (DC in the early 80s and Detroit in the early 90s), but I loved it. I've had plenty of southeast asian food (all excellent) having lived in HK for 10 years and traveled regularly.
My sweet wife is Uyghur, and if you have a chance to try Uyghur food, I am sure you will really enjoy adding that cuisine to your resume.
Anyway, tres exotic food is my request. Even some ordinary looking Italian restaurant with a killer bone marrow stew though it's probably too warm for that right now....no matter.
So, please let me know where the tasty and exotic are hiding, and as always, thank you!
