Eating through DC's Cheap Eats

I can't help it. Despite the economy, I still looove going out to eat. So when the newest issue of the Washingtonian magazine's Cheap Eats came out, I immediately opened it up to see who made it on the list. There were so many "newcomers" to the list -- a number of which I've been wanting to try (Ray's Hell Burger! Surfside!) and quite a few taken off the list (some that I've frequented -- Matchbox, Moby Dick House of Kabob, Pizzeria Paradiso...). In any case, seems like this is a good opportunity (and excuse!) to try some new places (and new types of food).

So here's my goal for the year (at least until the next Cheap Eats list comes out) -- try ALL the DC Cheap Eats. Although there are 100 restaurants on the list, there are only 21 restaurants in DC -- this seemed like a much more feasible number than the full list! Plus, I've been to six of the 21 restaurants (see below) (and 12 restaurants out of the 100 restaurants in total...), so that leaves me with 15 more restaurants??

And without further ado, here are the 21 restaurants:

Breadline (already eaten at!)
Café Divan
Comet Ping Pong
Figs Fine Foods
Good Stuff Eatery (already eaten at!)
Himalayan Heritage
Malaysia Kopitiam (already eaten at!)
Moroni & Brother's
Oohhs & Aahhs
Pete's New Haven Style Apizza
Tackle Box (already eaten at!)
Taqueria Distrito Federal
Taqueria Nacional
Teddy's Roti Shop
Thai X-ing
2 Amy's (already eaten at!)
Zorba's Café (already eaten at!)

That is an AWESOME goal! haha. I love the Washingtonian Cheap Eats issue. Kotobuki is one of my faves...I suggest checking it out on a weeknight. I went on a Friday once and it was packed! It's reasonably priced with great fish (I've also eyed the nifty casseroles - they come in this wooden boxy thing).

I've also heard good things about Etete and it's on my list of places to (eventually) check out.
