Traveling isn't easy when you're visiting a new city and have a palate created by BurgaBox. Everyone is screaming "pick me" on Instagram and Yelp but it can be hard to tell which places are actually worth the stop. That's where we come in. Our weekly post, "24 Hours in the City" will help you filter out the phonies and conquer each city with a full stomach and a slight buzz. Because that's the only way we know how to travel.
Another city, another food coma. This week, we are heading to our country's capital and taking over it's food and drink scene. Because haven't you heard? DC is the new NYC.
This means you'll be hitting up the best of the best and you'll have to push your body past a point that you never thought was achievable. Words from the #burgabosses: Eat all the carbs, and you'll leave with absolutely no regrets.
Compass Rose: I'll just spell it out: Compass Rose is known for a dish that combines 3 cheeses, eggs, butter all in a huge bread boat. It's called the Khachapuri and you should probably get to know it.
The Pig: Located in Logan Circle, The Pig will serve you just that. Start with the Pig Plate because there are apparently different types of bacon (apologies to the bacon connoisseurs out there)? And follow with the famous pork cheeks and at this point, you might as well sip on the Bacon Bloody Mary.
Smoked and Stacked: Here's to meat and even more meat for your midday meal. Order the Stacked because that baby is SERIOUSLY stacked with melt- in-your-mouth pastrami. Add on a Messy for a little extra fuel and get ready for a case of the meat sweats.
Duke's Grocery: No one has eaten at Duke's Grocery and left without tasting, ordering or staring at the "Proper Burger". This baby is loaded with Angus Beef, melted gouda, pickles, charred red onion, Thai sweet chili sauce, rocket & garlic aioli. Help satisfy your BurgaBox cravings, with one of the best patties in D.C.
Winter days call for basements and a solid beer coat to get you through an east coast chill. 2 Birds 1 Stone's basement location will surprise you with its sunny, light ambiance with a speakeasy feel. Have the bartenders mix you a little somethin', somethin' (you can never go wrong with gin or vodka) and then head over to American Ice Co for a drink in a mason jar. Want a shot instead? You're still shooting that thing straight out of the a mini mason jar, and you're going to love it. Check out the patio on a warm sunny day or post up in a booth with your best friends. Either way, you'll be getting buzzed and that's all anyone can really ask for.
Let us know if you end up visiting (or have visited) these places and how you liked them!
Look out for us next week in our next "24 Hours in the City" and conquer another city, one day at a time.
