As any good DC blogger should do, I stopped over at Fast Gourmet at 14 and W, NW tonight for some grub. Granted, it was 10:30pm on a Tuesday (I left work fairly late), but they were still open which I was very pleased to see. Fast Gourmet is located in a gas station. Yes, a gas station. But, as all of the DC bloggers have been saying recently, the quality of the food more than makes up for the fairly sketchy location. I’d also like to point out here that the YELP reviews are not too shabby. So of course I had to check it out to give my own loyal readers a personal review.
I love cubans. LOVE cubans. Okay I’m talking about the sandwich, and I love love love them. So of course, that is what I got; a solid choice considering this is one of the most blogged about items on the menu. Now I wasn’t expecting the side of fries, but that was also included. So let me tell you – this is a legit cuban folks. Packed full of the goods, it is also a full meal; one I could not rationalize finishing this entire contraption at 10:30pm when I was about to go to bed. But I had enough to know it is the real deal. Can’t wait to go back and check out the chivito and other items.
A side note: I also can’t wait to go back to oust the current mayor of this establishment on Foursquare. This is a character who I was previously battling for mayorship of my own condo building. Yes, my very own condo building! Don’t worry – I have a solid hold of the condo building mayorship currently; but to oust him at another location is certainly ideal. The battle for the Fast Gourmet mayorship is about to transpire, and the DC area better watch out.
