Years. Almost a decade.
That's how long we have been on the hunt for GREAT Asian food in the Washington area (sushi is easy around here, we're talking about everything else).
It's our white whale.
And last night we harpooned it. At the Cholon Viet Royale Restaurant at 6767 Wilson Boulevard in Falls Church, Virginia.
Just tell the waitress if you want pork, beef, chicken or fish, and let them worry about the rest.
Finally a DC restaurant that can hold its own with what's going on in San Fransisco's Chinatown.
We weren't sure we were going to make it.
Noted: 4 beers, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 deserts, tax and tip = $63
And all the free, convenient parking you could ever dream of.
Eat your heart out Georgetown/Adams Morgan/Downtown DC restaurant bullsh*t!
