USDA Cafeteria & Momofuku

While elements of our trip to DC have been somber, today we had a very good food day in DC.

We woke late today (jetlag), so missed breakfast. While sickened by the horrors of the Holocaust Museum we actually left hours after entering a little hungry (2 pm and no meal yet today). I looked at my Yelp app for the nearest restaurant and the USDA Cafeteria came up. 4.5 stars! We decided to check it out. We passed through security and hit the buffet. Everything was fresh and delicious! Highly recommend a quirky trip to the USDA cafeteria!

After our afternoon journey around DC (Washington Monument, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, White House) we took a short rest of our feet at our hotel. Then we headed to nearby Momofuku CCDC  and Milk Bar where we had booked reservations a month or so ago. Turns out it wasn’t necessary. So far, the restaurants in DC are largely empty. There doesn’t seem to be anybody here for Trump’s inauguration. Or perhaps it is also because David Chang (owner of Momofuku) is a well known Democrat. It didn’t disappoint and by the time we left the restaurant was packed. We were just early, but it was clear the patrons (all ethnically diverse) weren’t likely in the Trump camp.
