The LA Girls Do Cook Team is back where it belongs… IN LA! However, we can’t help but think back to the wonderful places we’ve encountered and recommend visiting if any of our readers ever travel to DC! We’ve found a little something for everybody.
Looking for simple, quick n filling… JUMBO SLICE in Adam’s Morgan is the perfect bang for your buck! 5$ for a pizza slice bigger than your head!
Searching for something refined and foreign?
La Tasca is a Spanish Tapas bar with a fiesty flair in DC’s Chinatown. The Decor is comfortable, the service is inviting, the food is delicious, the prices are easy on the pockets. Try the Gambas al Ajillo to kick start the metabolism and burn those calories!
If you are looking for something a little closer to home with a DC Twist go with Chicken, fries, and mumbo sauce. We admit that we were a bit skeptical of the location as to where you can find it (any quick stop express, usually Asian. When we feasted, it was like absolutely nothing we have tasted on the west coast!
Lastly,but definitely not least… we went to Philips. Phillips is a seafood cornucopia! Giant crab legs, lobster tails, oysters, clams, fresh fish…. just an overload of food for a Whale of a deal! Huge potent drinks, all you can eat, and the food is definitely fresh and the servers have smiles at all times!
What a great way to finish up our trip to the Nations Capital!

Part of the LA Girls DO Cook team is bringing the West coast to the East! We headed to the nations capital to see how the DC ladies are bringing it. Especially with Michelle Obama’s push for healthier living amongst the youth we just had to come check it out for ourselves! Not only are we turning heads with our LA Style, we’re picking up little tidbits of flair from the lovely ladies of Washington!
DC sexy involves: bright colors! We were surrounded by DC natives who sported the vibrant colors in not only their wardrobe but right down to the nail colors!!!
LA Sexy: Racy colors. Deep wine reds, and french tips! You know we LA ladies keep it classy and always red carpet ready!
On the layover from LA to DC, we picked up the book ” SKINNY BITCH” by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin! Beyond the cussing and potty mouth approach that the authors chose, this is an excellent book! It really made this half of the team take a second look at what we eat!… this is not your run -of- the- mill diet book and it is because of the book that we have decided to spend our time in DC as vegans/ vegetarians!
So far, we have discovered DC’s Chop’t! A delightful menu that caters to the vegan and vegetarian diet. Yummy and filling! We recommend the vegetarian powerhouse option…
So far, we can definitely say that DC is its own culture with its own the slang, music, and food. The ladies don’t go off of what media fashion dictates, centepede twists, gogo music and chicken mumbo sauce… where else in the world can you find that?
