The Final Meals.
I am leaving NOVA and the DC metro area. I am full of final meals, but wondering if I am missing anything. What would you have one last time before moving to rural Montana? I have so far been to:
Grace Garden (twice)
Super Pollo (last chicken)
Eden Center (de xao lan and bun bo hue)
Ravi (lamb karahi)
Ray's Hell Burger and Steak
La Caraquena (black bean soup)
La Union (hangover steak and eggs w/ grilled onions and homemade beans)
That weird and awesome Thai counter in the Thai store down by Baileys XR.
I am sure I am missing something where I will be going, doh! I shoulda had that one thing one last time!
Hunan Taste in Catonsville.
Possibly Sichuan Pavilion in Rockville, though nothing jumps out at me as an absolute must have, as opposed to HT where about a dozen things are in that category.
Hopefully food isn't as important to you as it us to me. If I were leaving for rural anything my last meal would have to cause it to be literally my last meal.

It is pretty important to us. I have been starting my research to learn to make things myself. I know there are the impossible like GG's fish noodles or de xao lan, but I can do pho, kim chee, some of the more simple stuff. I am also looking forward to a more garden to table approach as well. And lastly, there is the internet, so when I need fish sauce (and my case runs out) I can order it.

If I were leaving here I would need a lot of what you have above plus: one last Italian Store sub, crispy squid and pork knuckle stew at Thai Square, korean bbq. And maybe a Red Rocks pizza.
