Posted on: October 11, 2008 at 10:28PMThe half-smoke is a D.C. classic. It's smoked sausage with a kick, paired perfectly with chili and onions. The best are at Ben's Chili Bowl, right across from the U Street Corridor stop on the Metro Green Line. Make sure to check out the celebrity photos on the walls while you wait. Keep walking West towards Adams Morgan, and stop in Love Cafe for a mouth watering cupcake. Make sure to wait for the buttercream frosting to warm up to room temperature for the best effect. If you've got anymore room, keep heading West on U Street until you hit 18th. Make a right and you'll run into Adams Morgan. Bypass the jumbo slice pizza places for Amsterdam Falafel and Fries. The fries are heavenly and can be topped with the same amazing fixings as the falafel (fresh tabouli, hummus, roasted veggies and more - we're talking double digit options). By now you'll probably be in a food coma, so grab a coup of joe and crash on the comfy couches at Tryst, just another block up on 18th. report a problem
