Over the past few years, Washington, D.C. has morphed into quite the foodie destination with world-renowned chefs setting up restaurants here. We love exquisitely plated courses that stimulate each part of our tongue but sometimes we just want a good home cooked meal our moms or grandmothers would have cooked for us if we would visit more. (Sorry, mom.)
Check out venues like Ted's Bulletin and Florida Avenue Grill which serve breakfast all day long. While meat is the main attraction at Oohs and Aahhs Restaurant, the macaroni and cheese dosh is hard to be matched. Two comfort food classics are prepared to perfection at Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken.
But because the nation's capital is a melting pot of diverse culture we have included several eateries that offer traditional meals from different countries. Filomena Ristorante offers homemade pasta dishes that will make you think you are in Italy. If a bowl of ramen sounds delicious, Toki Underground is the spot for you.
Most of these restaurants offer a large amount of food for a small sum of money so grab those stretchy pants and make your stomach happy by stopping at one of these destinations.
