Asian & Hispanic places - Mt Vernon area (Route 1)

Wayne Keyser | Mar 12, 2005 10:41 PM

Driving down Route 1 to a job in the Belvoir area, I notioed several Asian and Hispanic places that made me go "hmmmm..." - there were the usual handful of woeful-looking buffets (Jackie Chan's? Thought he was a movie star ... oh, well). But then there were (hope I'm getting the names right):

"Thai Herbs" almost at Belvoir - plus, just a few doors down, a VERY unlikely-looking place labeled (almost) only in Korean - might have been called "New DC Restaurant". "Taco Jalisco" a little farther North. Place just at the top of the hill South of the Multiplex Cinema (was a KFC in my youth, a barbecue place, then a few more incarnations, now it's Hispanic)

All these places are on the East side of the road.

I know this is sketchy - tough to drive and write at the same time - anybody know anything about either one?
