Cuisine of Washington DC for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Washington's cuisine is eclectic, incredible even by the standards of the United States with its diverse culinary traditions. Africans, Asians, descendants of colonizers from France and England, Mexicans, and Indians have been coming here for centuries. You can find a restaurant with a menu that matches any preferences in the city today. Indian curry, German sausages, sushi and noodles, pizza and pasta, even dumplings – all these dishes are available in local restaurants. If you don't want to change your diet, just look for the right place. Do not forget that it is customary to leave a tip of 10-15 percent of the order amount in Washington.

They are mostly preserved from the traditions of Indian chefs. Local chefs cook a few soups. Basically, these are simple broths with almost no filling or thick soups. Despite all the love of Americans for fast food, ordinary bread is not very popular here.
Beef and pork or chicken form the basis of the diet of most citizens. Chicken is often baked whole. A simple, quick, and delicious dish is the result. If you get to the city on Thanksgiving eve, be sure to taste the traditional holiday stuffed turkey. Sometimes a pickled carcass is simply cooked with the filling on the same baking sheet. The filling can be very different – bread with nuts and spices, cabbage, potatoes, mushrooms, pork giblets, and even oysters. Every cook has his own cooking secret. However, the turkey is cooked very tasty here at any time of the year. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Vegetables like asparagus or cauliflower, as well as legumes, rice, and potatoes usually serve as a side dish. It is interesting that the locals do not treat salads as a light snack but as a main dish, along with meat. For example, "Caesar" is an American creation. In general, it is not acceptable to order a side dish with steak and vegetable salad. Please note that the cost of a dish of chopped lettuce leaves with sauce is often automatically added to the order price. It is interesting that although oysters, squid, and octopuses are cooked in Washington, it is fish dishes that are not very popular here. Of course, you can find baked trout but the choice is small in general.
Capitol ( Washington ) However, there are many dishes inherited from the Indians. Sweet potatoes, pecans, pumpkin, and beans are eaten here. These ingredients are very bland, so it's not surprising that a lot of seasonings are added to them. This is cinnamon, pepper, garlic powder or ginger. Citizens eat porridge, corn flakes, muesli, scrambled eggs, omelets, or a bun most often for lunch. The second breakfast is a mandatory meal here. Locals usually eat sandwiches and salad during it. More high-calorie foods, such as pork ribs, roast beef, schnitzel, steaks, or meat rolls, rely on dinner. It's not a shame for anyone to eat at McDonald's or Burger King.

In addition, you can find hundreds of cakes, multi-layered pies, candies with different fillings, ice cream, and dozens of different sweets from all over the world in Washington.
