Good, cheap, and quick around Foggy Bottom/GWU?
I'm meeting a business associate for a quick lunch today and Foggy Bottom/GWU is about mid-way between our offices. Can anyone suggest something good and cheap and quickish in the area? I think there's an Indian place close by but the name escapes me. Anyway, we're game for anything.
-Kaz Sushi Bistro
-Lindy's gets recs here but eh
-Aroma is an indian place next to Kaz on Eye St. - only time I was there was about 5 years ago.
-you could always go to J-Street at the GW student union, but that is probably just nostalgia talking
-Kinkeads at the bar would seem to be quick... never done it though
First, you can really go right or wrong at Breadline depending on what you order. If you are talking about Tuesday, then I suggest (in order of preference)the Italian Sausage Sandwich, the felafel, the egg salad, or the mediterranean pizza- all regular menu items. The Tuesday specials are not interesting. Really and truly stick to these recs.
Second, if you want very quick and cheap, then try DJ's Fastbreak at 22nd and G Sts. It is a Korean dive with a cafeteria line, popular with GW staff, profs, students not afraid of a little heat. If you don't mind spicy, then the tofu chighe or the gyoza udon noodle soups - get the gyoza fried, (either one with chicken)are 5 bucks and deeply satisfying on a cold day. They have a large selection there, everything from hamburgers, cheesesteaks, etc., but stick with the pan-Asian. This is one wierd place and needs to be experienced at least once.
Speaking of Breadline, I tried the Breadline BLT a certain WaPost reviewer is always lauding and definitely had the "eh" experience (more like a "WTF?" experience actually)after making a special trip to the place since it get's so much pub from 'hounds. (Interestingly though, contrary to the rep, the staff and counter folk were quite pleasant). I'll try some of your recs next time.
