5 Places to Try UberEATS in Washington D.C.
Charles Dickens once referred to Washington D.C. as the “City of Magnificent Intentions,” and while we all intend to eat well at the end of a long day, it’s all too easy to order out for pizza or Chinese, or to hit up the drive-thru on your way home. Next time, try UberEATS, the app that connects you with dozens of restaurants in and around the metropolitan area—and makes ordering food as every bit as easy as ordering a ride from Uber. Here are five awesome DC-based places you can order from through UberEATS:
One of the best pizza houses in Washington D.C. is Pizzeria Paradiso, which opened in 1991 to provide the kind of high-quality pizza usually found in cities like New York and Chicago. The staff make a flavorful thin crust by letting the dough rise slowly, topping it with fresh ingredients, spritzing with extra virgin olive oil, baking in a wood burning stone oven at 650 degrees, and serving the pie piping hot. There’s plenty of such pies made with their special tomato sauce, like the Bosco with spinach, mozzarella, mushroom, and red onion, or the Atomica, with salami, mozzarella, hot pepper flakes, and Kalamata olives.
Open since 1979 and now a Washington D.C. staple, the Middle Eastern cuisine served at Lebanese Taverna is beloved by diplomats, locals, and visitors. Guest love the seafood bouillabaisse, a hearty tomato-saffron stew with salmon, calamari, orange, and shrimp, as well as the Kafta kabobs, served with Lebanese rice and fresh roasted vegetables. If you’re completely new to these dishes, you may want to order the platters so you can sample a variety of their most popular delicacies at once.
The international flavor of the nation’s capital is evident in a wide range of cuisines, and particularly intriguing is the fusion of Taiwanese and Cambodian flavors at Maketto. Check out the leek buns, Cambodian pork noodle soup, num pang sandwich, soy milk, and Chinese donut sticks. For desert, there’s the decadent and delicious oatmeal cookies with miso cream filling. This restaurant uses seasonal ingredients and creates dishes based on what’s available, so be sure to check the changing menu often.
The Well Dressed Burrito
The Well Dressed Burrito is a popular hole-in-the-wall Mexican eatery beloved for their very generous portions, like the gigantic El Gordo burritos, which is stuffed with marinated chicken, beef, and sautéed vegetables and can satisfy the hungriest of appetites. And don’t forget the veryH burrito this place is named for; the Well Dressed has slow-roasted pork, black beans, lettuce, rice, salsa verde, and spicy pickled onions. The salsa manages a remarkable balance between heat and flavor, and the Mexican bread pudding is to die for.
This Jewish-style delicatessen doesn’t just feature a robust selection of sandwiches, but also all-day breakfast, vegetarian plates, and plenty of baked goods to round out their far-reaching menu that goes beyond the usual deli standards. The Reuben sandwich is a top seller at Heckman’s Delicatessen, and so is the Bodacious, which swaps the sauerkraut and Swiss cheese from the Reuben with cole slaw. There’s mac and cheese on the kid’s menu, and you can also build your own fresh salad. And don’t forget to try Nana’s matzo ball soup.
