Living in a new city is always exciting, and let’s be real, stressful at the same time. Where am I supposed to eat?! In that question, lies half of the fun. A delicious joint near DuPont Circle, Mission, creates some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. Only steps away from the metro, this quant restaurant is easily the whole package. I’ve been here in Washington D.C. for almost a month now and haven’t been as impressed with a restaurant as I have been when I went to Mission this past weekend. To be honest, food is often hard to write about, but when it is this good it is a piece of cake!! I could and will rave about my experience here for many days to come.
Being a huge food lover (obviously), I asked for many many recommendations for good eats here in D.C. One of the top ones? Was Mission. As my friend, Alexa, and I had just gone on a long bike ride and was feeling something hearty and filling – a.k.a. Mexican food!! As we came up the escalators from the DuPont metro stop, we saw the cutest little white brick building hung with twinkling lights and secretly hoped that was where we’d be eating…and it was! Let’s just say it was a happy moment for us. We luckily arrived at a great time and was instantly seated on the patio outside. Usually, there is a longer wait for this seat, so make sure to get there before peak time (6:00 p.
m. – 7:00 p.m.).
Speaking from my hungry stomach, I chose a crowd favorite, the Carnitas Fajitas. Alexa, went with the other favorite, the Taco Platter. Make sure to not fill-up too much on the chips and salsa provided before, even though they’re super addicting.
We will definitely be back again! That pork is already calling my name. See you soon, Mission!Mission ( 1606 20th St NW, Washington, DC 20009 // 202.525.2010 )
