July 18, 2015 – July 20, 2015 – It’s my first time in Washington, D.C.! I took a red eye flight Thursday evening, landed in DC the following morning and stayed out to eat, site see and party until … I’m not even sure when.
I was to excited I basically saw everything on my first day:
Founding Farmers – Possibly the most visited restaurant in D.C. Their chicken and waffles were among the best I’ve had. You know it’s good when the waffle is crispy and melts in your mouth. JONASAPPROVED!
Walked from Founding Farmers along Pennsylvania Ave through Washington Circle to Georgetown.
Baked and Wired – There seems to always be a line here. Their offerings are a bit too sweet for me, though.
National Mall – Visited Lincoln Memorial, National World War II, Washington Monument, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Albert Einstein Memorial, the White House (just outside), and then the National Museum of American History, which took up the rest of the day.
Toki Underground – One of the best bowls of ramen I’ve had. JONASAPPROVED!
Snocream Shavery – Shaved snow served from a what feels like a party bus. How fun is that? JONASAPPROVED!
Hunan Number One – Came for the party (not the food) in Arlington. Good music and cheap drinks make for a good time.
Bronx Pizza – It’s drunk pizza and was definitely good at the time.
Day two was more relaxed. It was more about spending time with friends, which was great.
Tysons Corner Center – This whole area is amazing. It reminds me of the mixed-use towers in Tokyo. One could live here and never have to leave since it has shopping, dining, fitness centers, and business offices.
Barrel and Bushel – The rooftop setting was just amazing. It’s a great place to lounge around on a nice day. Food was not bad.
Shake Shack – When in east coast! My first time eating it and I liked it. I think it’s better than In-N-Out, but on a daily basis, I would still choose In-N-Out since it’s more economical and still made fresh.
I got the full D.C. and metroed into D.C. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s stick to our cars, ok?
National Museum of Natural History – Another amazing free museum I got to visit.
Chinatown – Unlike all the other Chinatowns I’ve been to around the world, this is the least Chinese-looking one. It’s basically like any other busy commercial center except all of the business signs have Chinese translations.
Haagen Dazs – #nationalicecreamday
Perry’s – Sushi on a rooftop. #yas! JONASAPPROVED!
