The Tombs [DC]

During our last day in DC, Elizabeth and I hung out around the beautiful town of Georgetown. I got to catch up with some high school friends (s/o to Shiv, Alex, and almost Perry), and walk around the beautiful Georgetown University campus that makes MIT’s campus look like a trashcan. For our last meal in DC, Alex joined me and Elizabeth at The Tombs, a popular restaurant among Georgetown students. According to my friends at Georgetown, it’s known for its good food and rich traditions.


We started off with the amazing Clyde’s Crab and Artichoke Dip, which was served with warm bread. It was pretty creamy, but you could definitely taste the bits of crab.


The menu consists of typical bar food, so I went with the Salmon Burger, which included a seaweed salad, Sriracha aioli, and pickled ginger atop of the salmon patty. I loved the unique taste of this burger–the pickled ginger and Sriracha aioli made it taste oddly Asian, as if it were a roll of salmon sushi in burger form.


Elizabeth went with the Fish Tacos, which came with oven-roasted, citrus slaw, ancho-chili sauce, cilantro, sour cream, rice pilaf, and black bean pico de gallo.


Alex went with the Sunday night special, which was called the Prime Rib Sunday Supper, and consisted of a gigantic slab of steak. “It was huge, but definitely worth it,” Alex stated.

All in all, our trip to DC was as delicious as it was fun. Until next time!
