While in Washington DC, my mom and I had a craving for Chinese food. We looked in the phone book but every restaurant that looked interesting was kinda far away and then we saw it - Washington DC has a Chinatown! Isn't the entrance beautiful?
The Walgreens and Subway had Chinese lettering - I thought it was cool.
We also had steamed dumplings and lo mein. Too much food but it was so good, and other restaurants around town were so busy, that we went back to Chinatown another night and tried a different restaurant that was also fabulous. Plus, I did a little shopping in the Asian shops.
