Chinatown in Washington DC

After visiting the Zoo, and the Bonsai Gallery, our first full day in Washington DC ended with a walk around Chinatown. 




According to the step counter on my phone, we took about 25,000 steps that day, which is around 12 miles. We had worked up an insane hunger and liked the looks of this place because because eating first was all we could think about.

As soon as we sat down they served us complementary tea, which I loved.

I had worked up such an appetite that I somehow managed to eat this absurdly large plate of veggie noodles in its entirety. 

After stuffing ourselves, we walked around and enjoyed the busy sights of Chinatown.

I loved everything in this adorable gift shop, but they had sings everywhere inside that said NO PICTURES. So I had to settle for just one picture of the outside.

Wok and Roll. I love it.








I love the bustling, busy atmosphere of Chinatown, and all the ornate decoration. It's definitely one of my favorite places in DC.

  1. Now I am cravings Chinese food. I havent had Chinese in years. Thats basically because its so difficult to find REAL chinese food around here. I once went to China town in Paris and once in NYC and I really loved both places (and had amazing food there :)).

    1. It definitely is hard to find good Chinese food, especially if you are vegetarian/vegan. This place was pretty yummy!

  5. We only managed to pass through a little of Chinatown when we were in Washington DC, but I liked the little glimpse I got of it.

  6. Looks like a lot of fun. And the dishes are mouthwatering. Chinatown here has become a parking lot, tho. Happy Memorial Day weekend, girl.
