Dinner at Daikaya
It's been a few
weeks months since we had dinner at Daikaya...but I'm finally getting around to telling you about it! The newest ramen place in town (or at least it was when we were there) is also one of the hottest places to go. Located right next to Graffiato and across the street from the Verizon Center, it's a must try.
Not knowing too much about ramen other than my one experience at Toki Underground, it was a bit intimidating to go to this hot new ramen shop. But honestly, there aren't many options and everything's delicious - so you just have to go for it.
I got the Japanese beer Sapporo and M got Sake. There aren't many options for alcoholic beverages...but that forced us to try something new!
We got the dumplings and the 2 different ramen dishes to try both - and honestly I don't even remember which 2 we got, but they were both delicious.
Definitely recommend going. Even if there's a long wait, they will take your phone number and text you when a table's available - and you can just go next door for a glass of draft prosecco!
When we were there, just the first floor ramen shop was open...since then, they've opened an Izakaya on the second floor. According to their website, an Izakaya is "a type of restaurant that serves Japanese comfort food to accompany a wide range of drinks." Guess we need to go back! DC has such a diverse dining scene, it's always an adventure to try something new!
