Delicious Classic- Ben's Chili Bowl, DC

What can I say about one of the most famous restaurants in DC?  Delicious, classic, exciting! That is exactly what Ben's Chili Bowl is all about.

I went there a couple of weeks ago during lunch. I had heard about this place from the Travel Channel. I decided to check it out for myself.
 I tried their Jumbo Beef Dog for only 5.45. WOW! 
I truly enjoyed my time there and I know I will be back when I am in the area!!!

Hunan Manor, Silver Spring/ Columbia, MD

The Hunan Manor-located at 11237 New Hampshire Ave, Silver Spring, has been a favorite of mine for over 10 years. With excellent service, great location and wide menu options, Hunan Manor has been a staple in the Silver Spring area for Chinese cuisine.
Their Columbia, MD location was selected by USA Today February 5, 1999 as one of “Ten Great Places to Celebrate the Chinese New Year in the Nation”.

Their appetizers vary from shrimp toast and egg rolls to spring rolls and fried dough. Their soups are designed for 2 people and are a big large and very delicious.


Pho 88 Vietnamese

This place is excellent for those that enjoy large-and I mean large-bowls of soup-as this is all they serve-in a quiet, comfortable atmosphere. Great for a rainy day. Their menu ranges from seafood, noodle, to the very spicy type soups.
Their entrees are all under 10 bucks too!

It's right across the street from Costco.
