Five Bites on Friday

Your Five Bites e-mails have been great, so keep 'em coming. Metrocurean reader and friend Colleen Clark, at right, chimes in with this week's list:

1. Palak chaat at Rasika

2. Pumpkin empanadas at Rice

3. Duck fat fries at Blue Duck Tavern

4. A tie between the pork-leek dumplings and the beef lai mein (stretched noodles) soup at Chinatown Express

5. Goat cheese and roasted red pepper Belgian waffles at Belga Café

Five Bites is a weekly opportunity for you to tell Metrocurean readers which dishes you're enjoying around town.

E-mail five of your favorite dishes or drinks and whether you'd like your name and a pic included (shameless blog plugs also welcome) to metrocurean@gmail.com.

Interesting, the first two on the list are two of my staples -- I get them every time I go to those two restaurants. The Paalak Chaat is one of the most brilliant dishes I've had -- I'm South Asian, and have gone there with lots of other Indian people, including several like me who have actually lived in India for several years. As one of my friends was saying recently, the great thing about the Paalak Chaat is that it is "authentic," and yet unlike anything any of us have ever found in India or at another Indian restaurant elsewhere. Mmmmmmmm.

i think the paalak chaat is one of my favorite all-time dishes. my friends always mock me for raving about it until they try it...

the rice pumpkin empanadas havent gotten nearly as much press, but hot damn are they good. plus, rice is the only dc thai restaurant i've eaten at since my trip to bangkok that hasnt disappointed!

Anyone I've ever been with who tries the chaat for the first time always says, "Oh my gosh." They're shocked it's so good.

I got into your blog when researching for what people thinking about Thailand. It's very useful information for my planing trip in Bangkok. Thank you so much...
