Years ago, back in my college days, El Rincon Espanol was one of my favorite haunts in DC where I could get a reliably great meal cheap. I still post about it every once in a while, usually when Adams Morgan comes into question.
A lunch there this week confirms that this is still possible. An appetizer of platano relleno was beautifully presented, completely luscious, and half the price of an upscale eatery. A tortilla espanol was another appetizer which could have been shared by three or four. It was a super fluffy (almost souffle) combination of potato, eggs, fresh herbs, and a strip of red pepper hidden in the middle. With a powerful-tasting tamarindo, the whole thing set me back $11 with tax and tip.
