If you are looking for a place to grab a quick bite to eat and are in DC’s Chinatown/Penn Quarter area…perhaps going to a Wizards or Caps game….look no further than the Potato Valley Cafe.
This place, located at 614 E Street NW (just down from the Starbucks on 7th and E, towards Union Station), was recommended by a co-worker. So, I went to check it out for lunch yesterday.
It’s more like a fast-food joint, with very limited seating (too bad you can’t really take food into Wizards games like you can for Nationals games). But the customer service is friendly and the food is great. And actually, the potato is wrapped like a lil’ food baby, so maybe you can sneak it in a game somehow.
The concept is that they oven-roast these huge potatos and add a bunch of toppings….it’s a complete meal that can be consumed easily and quickly….unless you are like me (aka Sergeant Sauce) and like to cram as many toppings and sauces on your food as possible.
In any case, check them out – The Potato Valley Cafe – www.potatovalley.net
Tell them www.truthaboutit.net sent you and they will look at you like you’re crazy. Curious enough, their cafes are in DC, Annapolis, and….Vegas.
