Fun in DC

This past weekend my husband and I were in the Nation's capital at the American Society of Landscape Architects show.
My husband near the White House
We had a great time at the Washington Monument, War Memorials, and Lincoln Memorial. Since we were staying so close to the White House we checked that out as well. I think the best part of the white house experience was the guy we saw with the machine gun on the grounds. If that doesn't make you want to put a little hustle in your step I don't know what will. We also made a stop at the International Spy Museum, it was interesting and a place you should not go if you suffer from paranoia, I don't and I was still super creeped out.

We really had a great experience while we were there. Our hotel rocked, the food was great, and we didn't even get pick pocketed like my last trip there.

We started our DC Food Tour at Arts on Foot. We really just happened upon this Arts and food festival on our way to the Spy Museum. We had some interesting little teriyaki chicken buns and some really good frozen yogurt with peaches, candied walnuts, and strawberries.

Next on our stop was KAZ, a great Japanese restaurant.We started with hot sake, miso soup and edamame.  With KAZ's Teryiaki Chicken Bento Boxes for our entree. They were great! The temporah chicken and veggies were light and crunchy and were out of this world. I highly suggest stopping here if you have an opportunity.

After some morning coffee and a crioissant, we headed to the Architect show. From there we were we stumbled upon Chinatown Express. I am not going to lie, the guy making noodles in the window sucked me in. The food was amazing. I highly suggest trying this place out for a quick, cheap, and delicious meal.

Happy Monday!

Joy, I love that you wrote about your experience in D.C.! Will you be writing about your food experiences every time you and Adam travel? I love it! You could do some of your local places too. That way people who read your blog will have an idea of the great places to eat if they visit the area. Great job!
