I decided to clump all the restaurants from each city into one blog post per city. I think it’s easier this way. I also have quite a few more recent topics to blog about, so I want to finish the roadtrip blogging soon (although I enjoy looking through all the food pics from the trip and thinking about the tasty food).
We had a hard time finding a place to eat dinner in Washington D.C. even though we had a bunch of vegan-friendly places on our list. Some of the places on our list were on the opposite side of town, so we didn’t want to go too far out of the way. Fortunately we found Roti, a Mediterranean version of Chipotle. Roti even has gluten-free pita bread!
My pita wrap fell apart as I devoured it. See?
Roti offers vegan cabbage slaw, tomato cucumber salad, hummus, and falafel (not gluten-free).
Roti is located at: 1747 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC.
The next day we went to Sticky Fingers bakery for brunch. Sticky Fingers bakery is all vegan! I wanted to check this place out because of the bakery, but I later found out that they serve breakfast and lunch items as well. I ordered a black bean quesadilla (Daiya cheese with gluten-free tortillas) with a side of potato and corn chowder. Usually I can never get a gluten-free vegan quesadilla so I was very excited to see it on the menu!
Danny ordered the asian wrap – a soy pepper steak tossed with homemade carrot ginger dressing.
And we got two cupcakes to go – mine is a gluten-free chocolate cupcake with peppermint icing. Danny got the cookies and cream cupcake. YUM!
Danny loves vegan cupcakes!
But I think I love them more
Sticky Fingers is located at 1370 Park Rd. NW, Washington DC 20002
We went to Dos Gringos Café for our last dinner in DC. Dos Gringos offers vegan and vegetarian options, including a hummus, grilled tofu, and spinach sandwich, a black bean and spinach burrito, veggie chili, chickpea salad. I ordered the chipotle grilled tofu sandwich with comes with sundried tomatoes, capers, jalapenos, and greens. I ordered it without bread along with a side of plantains.
Here’s my bread-less sandwich. The tofu was so good! I didn’t even miss the bread.
Dos Gringos Café is located at 3116 Mount Pleasant Street, Washington DC
