Good Ethnic Food in the District

arose | May 23, 2008 08:42 AM

Hey all,

My dad is visiting from Washington State and where he lives his options for quality ethnic food (without driving a long distance) are limited so when he comes to visit me I have to come up with new restaraunts to try every time. Obviously I don't want to take him somewhere that isn't going to be good so I would love any recommendations. We are looking for something moderately priced, though I am open if it's got killer food. He likes stuff that is more unusal, so probably not italian, french, Chinese, Japanese. I live in the Adams Morgan/Dupont area, and it would be great to stay around there, but I don't mind hopping on the metro either, though please nothing in MD or VA, it's just too far from his hotel and we don't have a car.

Last night we went to Malaysian, I have taken him to Ethiopian and Cuban. I thought about trying Russia House, but have heard mixed reviews though we both love Russian. Going to head out to the burbs for Afghani with my boyfriend on Sunday.

Any ideas? Your help is appreciated!
