La Flor de Puebla

Reviews:
Needed a tres leches for a party my mother was hosting. I intervened when I heard they were going to purchase one from the gringo bakery. Now, I know it's highly likely that the people in back are latinos making the cake, but still. What's the point of living in such a diverse area, if you don't take advantage of the distinct authentic offerings of these groups from the places they themselves frequent. Enter La Flor de Puebla. I had heard about this place and also knew that Riverdale is known for being little Mexico (yes, Mexico - not El Salvador. That is not an ignorant mistake). Now who lays the most claim to tres leches, boys and girls??? Viva México! Read some reviews on Yelp and called in the order in my beautiful, fluent Spanish :) This was serious business, there were a stream of questions - for a male or female? child or adult? Filled or not filled? Round or squared? Fruit choices for fillings. "Poca leche or mucha leche" (a little milk or a lot). That question stumped me as I don't eat tres leches, but I shot back with a lot, quickly calling three friends after I hung up to get a consensus. Everyone said they preferred a wetter tres leches so I felt good about my split second decision. Picked it up on Saturday initially going to the wrong location. There are 2 sister locations within 5 min of each other (that should tell you something) so make sure you know which one you need to pick up from. Both numbers start with 301-699 so that won't help. At the wrong location (bigger spot), I had never seen so many cake orders stacked up... lots and LOTS of probably mostly tres leches. I felt confident in my decision when I saw that. Got to the proper locale, was shown a cake decorated with cut fruit - strawberries, kiwis and 3 others. It was not unattractive by any means, but w/o that euro-pastry decorative flair. Brought it home and my mom took a look and slightly turned up her nose. 2 hours later when it was cut, she said it was delicious as did all the other guests. And don't hesitate to order "mucha leche", it's not dripping or anything. I couldn't try it as I'm trying to stay away from dairy, but going on the responses of my mom's guests, as well as the traffic surrounding these bakeries, they are obviously doing something right.
Bought some "pan de muerto" for Day of the Dead and some Abuelita hot chocolate. This is the only place around DC I could find that had Day of the Dead bread! For that alone, 5 stars.
First time here, fortunately I was with my fiancé & his family because I don't really speak Spanish. There is soo much to choose from. Cakes, slices of cakes, parfaits (I got one, haven't eaten yet) donuts, pastries, drinks. I'm not a fan of the tres leches cake but apparently they are good here. My pastry had that Bavarian type cream in the center & was really rich & yummy. A lot of the cakes had strawberries.

Best chicken! And their prices are great! Can't go wrong with this place. This is the "hole in the wall" kinda place but it's great.
Best Peruvian chicken I have ever had. I come in here for food on a weekly basis and I love their yellow sauce to dip my yuca or French fries in, ask for extra!!!
Cleaner then most pervian chicken places with more of a selection of sides. Nothing outrageously awesome and extra ordinary except the value of the amount of food you get w a simple combo. Haven't tried the carne asada yet but i will keep trying the rest of the menu.

Arby’s

Reviews:
I've eaten a lot of fast food. I've been to more than a few Arby's locations. I also lived in this neighborhood before it was as run down as it is now, so I can't say I was expecting much...but I was hungry...and how bad could they mess up a roast beef sandwich, right!? I've been here twice now and I'll be back. Here's why: GREETING: The people there looked me in the eye and smiled with a greeting in preparation for taking my order. That just doesn't happen often anymore. SPEED: The order was taken and filled VERY fast. It's FAST FOOD, right? Not everywhere I've been in the last 10-15 years. This Arby's makes it happen quickly. QUALITY: I've gotten a lot of fast food orders that looked so obviously thoughtlessly prepared I was almost afraid to eat the product I'd just purchased. This Arby's not only made my food FAST, but they make it look very appealing--fresh, neat, etc. I recommend you get your next roast beef sandwich right here. Oh, and when you're leaving, make sure you ring the bell!
Service was good, but the place is not very clean. If you already like Arbys, then this wont improve your opinion of the company.
This your typical Arby's fast food joint with their regular brand menu offerings. As an occasional to seldom junk food eater I've over the years dutifully tried everything on their menu at least once. Somehow I don't think they're as good as they once were - in general. So as to make it easy to gage each of these places, if and when I do try them, I've devised a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being outright down and dirty nasty, and 5 being the best a fast food joint can be! I gage: cleanliness; service; product quality; convenience; accessibility; taste and the personnel's attitude. This place scores 4.0 of 5. I may be coming back here although I don't highly recommend it!

GOOD!!! Came here in the summer of 2013 and I will continue supporting. Especially on seafood I am picky but I am satisfied with the product from here.
I visited on the wrong day. First no female crabs big disappointment, 2. The price was 70 for a half bushel of male crabs. 3. My children first experience was :(. We vomited i won't visit again smh..
I use to goto ruff n ready years ago for crab legs and they were always huge and perfect! This past wkend I got Maryland crabs ..small males..They were steamed perfectly and so meaty! And such a reasonable price...Best crab place to goto 100%. They also have shrimp and other seafood platters.

Reviews:
I love to come here for their Burritos!!!! I've tried chicken, shrimp, and beef --- and Beef is my favorite. Gosh it's just so full of flavor! As a regular "Chipotle" eater, I must say that since discovering this place, the ONLY reason I still eat at "Chipotle" is because "Tacos Cinco De Mayo" is not close enough at the time to go and get a burrito from there instead. They bring you free chips and salsa when you first sit.... and if you order the burrito it comes with a free fountain drink!!! Also, this place makes it super easy to pay separately, since you go up at the end of your meal to pay at the cash register.
The best Mexican food I've found (so far) in the DC area. Major extra points for the delicious Verde salsa and the homemade tortilla chips which were fresh and hot when I got them. Next time I come back, I will have to get the burritos. The only things I can complain about are the lack of parking and how out of the way this place is but aside from that, it's well worth a short trip outside of DC. You must try the Verde salsa!
Dont be fooled by the local divyness of this place. It is about as legit as it gets in this area. They even have escabeche (very spicy carrots and peppers). Simple but its a Taco shop and the food is great. Make sure to check your salsa for spice it could be rough if you can't handle it.

MmmmmmMmmm! I pass this place every day on my way home from work. A couple months ago I decided to give it a try. I pulled up to the drive thru and ordered the chicken burrito. When I payed and picked up my brown paper bag it felt heavy... like pounds heavy! Very good, filling burrito with rice, black beans, chicken, and cooked tomatoes. The guacamole and extra veggies cost extra. It has a creamy sauce. Comes with 2 tiny containers of the green hot sauce and a white-orange sauce. I drop by at least once a week for the burrito! The 1/4 chicken+2 sides is just ok. I already know a local popular spot with delicious Peruvian chicken so no other chicken will even compare. I had ordered fried yucca and black beans+rice. The sides were good... but man.... that burrito is goooooood!
Went on a Sunday evening after a day of shopping at that dump of a mall of Prince Georges Ordered the FIESTA FOR 4 1 Whole Chicken w/ 4 sides We orders 2 beans and rice and 2 corn The chicken was moist and delicious but overly salty like some Peruvian chicken Sides were very tasty Staff was accommodating Only complaint its watery sauces SHOULD BE THICKER
The chicken burrito bowl and horchata are excellent. The service is nice, but a bit overwhelmed by all the orders. I'd recommend it.

I am fasting for lent and although Ethiopian food is really good for fasts (think veggie combo), I took mine a step further and cut out carbs. Yep - that means no injera. Good lawd! What was I thinking? Well - lent is all about sacrifice, so I guess that means I am doing it right, but man. This is hard. Well, I broke yesterday. I was just going to stay away from Ethiopian food for the entire fasting period because you have to eat Ethio food with injera, but I couldn't take it anymore. I wanted to eat it! I NEEDED to eat it. I am not even having meat this month. I think I deserved a little bit of some really good veggies, right? So - I walked in and did the unthinkable: "Hi - yes... can I have the veggie combo with no injera." Stunned, the guy behind the counter looked at me. "NO INJERA?!?!" I laughed. "I know, I know. No injera." I tried to explain the situation, but he was still super confused. I don't blame him. I mean he probably never had an Ethiopian chick come in, place and order, and then say no injera. It would be like ordering pizza without the crust or a milkshake without a cup. Just didn't make sense. "How are you going to eat it," he asked. "Like a 'faringe'" I laughed. He laughed too. Well, after the shock of it all, he finally got the cook to make my order. I could hear him having the same conversation in Amharic with a lady in the back and started laughing again. It was indeed funny. In the end though, I got my order and was on my merry way home. When I got home, my food was cold (they didn't warm it up for some reason when I left - guess that's only for dine in?). I had to warm up the warm foods before hand and take out the foods that are meant to be eaten cold. It was my first time ever eating Ethio food without injera and with a fork instead, and I dare not ever do it in public for sake of getting my Ethio card revoked, but - in the privacy of my own home with no one around by my hubby - I have to say, it was alright. Something was definitely missing since the pairing of injera with ethio food produces this melding of flavors that just can't be beat, however eating it alone was better than not eating it all. Why go on a long diatribe about eating Ethio veggies with or without injera? Because it points to the fact that the veggie platter here is SOOO good that even when you aren't eating the food properly with injera, each one stands on its own and is perfect. Rebecca is a little whole in the wall place, but it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
Oh my gosh this was super delicious. I went to the food truck when it was at L'Enfant. I had the Key Wot, finely chopped beef in berbere sauce. I love berbere sauce dishes, but for some reason I don't always find dishes with berbere sauce at Ethiopian restaurants. (I first fell in love with the dish at Meskerem in Adams Morgan.) Anyway, this was EXTREMELY DELICIOUS. It's funny because I was looking at the sign on the side of the food truck and thought, "I probably should be having vegetables instead; it would be healthier." Well my dish came with two vegetable sides! My frequent complaint about food trucks is that they don't give you that much food and they're actually more expensive than a brick and mortar place. Well my dish was $9.99 and it was an extremely large serving and I'm worried about being too full for my Thai dinner tonight with a friend!
Had the vegetarian platter at Rebecca's food truck at Farragut Sq- amazing! She even gave me a free sambusa while I waited. Definitely going back.
