Sleeping in and amazing brunch marked my last day in DC. Can’t think of a better way.
My mission of this DC trip was to practice making HDR photos, and I came back with a list of lessons learned. And also…unsatisfactory results that I don’t even know how to fix. I’m hoping to send some of them to a pro and ask for advice.
During the five days, the gastronomic adventure was just as incredible as sunrise at the Tidal Basin. Fried chicken Gua Bao, Taiwanese soda and ramen at Toki Underground on H Street, Manchego cheese sandwiches at 100 Montaditos in Bethesda, schweinebraten lomito at Duke’s Grocery in East Dupont and now, brunch at Founding Farmers!
Founding Farmers opened its DC location in 2008. It is still one of the top 10 most requested restaurants as of late 2013. This place has very extreme reviews online. Most criticized aspects range from horrible service, bad presentation to the truth behind its allegedly farm-to-table sustainability. Nevertheless, I thought it was still good food and I would go back again for the New Orleans stuffed French toast!
Founding Farmers 2008年就開了第一家店，到現在還是DC最難訂位前十名之一 (2013年底統計)，這家餐廳的評價非常極端，有人批評它的服務和擺盤，有人批評這家餐廳號稱很綠、很farm-to-table但其實不然的真相，但不管怎樣，夾心法式吐司真的超好吃！
The “Bananas Foster” flavor of the New Orleans style French toast is stuffed with vanilla pastry cream. Soaked in Brandy creme and flash fried, the brioche had a caramelized crust. It was drenched in maple cinnamon syrup but not soggy.
Another dish worth noting was the fried green tomatoes. The cornmeal batter was very good. The goat cheese and green goddess dips tasted refreshing.
