“Holy cow, that was delicious!!! I had...”
Reviewed September 15, 2010

Holy cow, that was delicious!!! I had the chicken satay and my husband has some lamb dish, but we both Agree it was the best $8 each meal we've ever had. My 14 month old devoured the peanut chicken, and he isn't much of a chicken eater!!!

“Great Sandwich shop”
Reviewed August 14, 2010

First off, this isn't in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. It's a block from the White House and about three blocks from Farragut West Metro.
That being said, glad to see another independent lunch spot in this neighborhood. A little overpriced, but fairly reasonable. The sandwiches are great-the ingredients used are fresh and everything I've had is awesome

“Why, there are decent sandwich shops in DC!”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

If you can count on Downtown DC for anything, it is the guarantee that you will be able to locate 3 Cosis and another 3 au bon pains within a 3 block radius. Not to mention, the more seemingly local sandwich shops that catch your eye every once in a while that are often way too dirty and more often than not, overpriced and disappointing.

But finally (!) Foggy Bottom has made the move to decent sandwich construction. Though, while it is just as overpriced, the product is worth it. A friend and I went to check out this place on a Friday afternoon around 1, and while it was busy, it was not so overcrowded that we were able to finish a decent and relaxed lunch in about an hour.

I decided upon the Banh Mi: a perfect balance between an array of fresh and crisp vegetables such as carrots, watercress, celery, and the like, and the complex and flavorful tastes of the pate. Excellent! My friend on the other hand, decided to go with the Cubano. With promises of BOTH roasted pork and prosciutto, one could only think that this is going to be heavenly. How could this go wrong? Sadly, however, while the salts of the prosciutto were overwhelmingly succulent, the leanness of the roasted pork really made it more of a superfluous addition used to cut down on what may have been a flavor explosion in your mouth without it. Yet, with the combination of the pickled jalapenos and a mustard to die for, the sandwich was not a total bummer. Though, I would probably sample something else the next time.
