Hodge's RIP, Akosombo still hanging in

Steve | Jul 25, 2008 07:48 AM

DC's best hot roast beef sandwich is no more. Everything at the old Hodge's on NY off 6th has been stripped down.

Ghanaian dive, Akosombo, is still around. For those of you willing to go to a dive, I can tell you that the effects of their last renovation are wearing quite thin.

Still, it is more presentable than it used to be.

Although they are thoretically open until 8pm, it is predominantly a lunch place; they don't refill the steam table after lunch.

I still think they should bottle their red sauce. If they ask you if you want sauce on your fish (or other food) the answer is YES! Whole mackeral I had yesterday was the best I've had in a long time. Sometimes the whole fish is croaker.
