New and exciting in Silver Spring?

nc213 | Jun 2, 201407:03 AM     4

Headed to Silver Spring in a few weeks for Silverdocs (or, as it has sadly been renamed AFIdocs) and planning some good eats. I used to live in the area, so we have some perennial favorites, especially ethnic foods that are less available in our current digs in Ohio. Definites are Abol, Mandalay, Penang, York Castle, and Oriental East for dim sum. Woodlands is also high on the list, though I can get South Indian here.

Anything new that I should know about? I'm seeing positive comments on Nainai's noodles and dumplings and also Charm Thai.

Our film schedule is on the busy side, but we can definitely strike out to Bethesda, Wheaton, or elsewhere once or twice if planned in advance.

Also, we may do a dinner somewhere near the downtown sites, mostly near Gallery Place Metro. We might hit Zaytinya, which I love and haven't visited in years, but I'm happy for other suggestions.

Thanks in advance. So excited to be back in such a great food town.
