Please tell me your recs DC hounds. Really looking for not your same old made for gringos run of the mill dishes.
And a quick primer: Generally, outside of Thai X-ing (to which I haven't yet been personally) Thai inside DC is Americanized. Wheaton and Columbia Pike in Arlington are the top spots generally speaking. Outside of Eden Center, and not going into a pho discussion (save for one point) Nam Viet and Minh's are the other most often referrred to.
The point about pho is that around here there's a general rule that if the pho is good, the rest of the menu probably is not, and vice versa.
If you're a further outlier in any direction then there are other options (for instance there's actually pretty decent thai offerings in Reston/Herndon/Sterling).
