Located a 10-minute walk away from NoMa-Gallaudet Metro Station along the Red Line, Union Market is DC’s warehouse of all things delicious: bourbon bread pudding, oysters fresh from the shell, smoked barbecue pork, refreshing Burmese iced desserts and much more. The various smells and sights of delicious foods and thirst-quenching drinks are so intoxicating, each visit to Union Market leads to me giving into multiple cravings and diving bite-first into three plates of food. This weekend was no different, as I ventured to Union Market with a fellow foodie to satisfy his cravings for Arepa Zone’s assortment of Venezuelan sandwiches and my cravings for DC Dosa’s South Indian savory crepes. We definitely over-ordered, but with food this delicious, had absolutely no regrets doing so.
