DATELINE: Arlington, VA
Monserrate, a small Colombian market and restaurant on Glebe Rd., just north of Rte 50. Usually it looks deserted. As a 'side dish', they offer a big fat chorizo, all juicy and fatty along with a fluffy arepa for about $3.50. The chorizo was impressive and I enjoyed this very much. I also had an empanada which was small, quite crispy on the outside and with cheese and ground beef on the inside. It was served with a chopped onion and cilantro condiment.
Ben's Chili Bowl, half smoke with chili: I was floored by how salty this was. Not the chili topping so much as the half smoke. It was a big hit of salt and somewhat unpleasant.
Monserrate was pretty cheap, but it is also waiter service, so that adds to the cost. It wins hands down.
