DCA Food & Wine Festival 2020
This year I wasn't able to try as many festival items as I would have liked, but here are some highlights:
Grilled shrimp tacos and poblano pasta
These menu items were full of flavor but also extremely spicy. The pasta was very tasty and the tacos had a fresh crispy shell. I would not recommend this marketplace if you are sensitive to spice.
Off the Cob
Shrimp and braised corn
This was a delicious combination of flavors, especially the chorizo and corn base.
The salmon in this dish was cooked perfectly but I was not a big fan of the relish on top and the rice was a little dry.
Fried guacamole with carne asada
This was my favorite dish that I tried at the festival this year. I don't typically like steak but the meat combined with fresh tomatoes and warm crispy avocado was delicious.
Carbonara garlic macaroni and cheese from Garlic Kissed was so creamy with the perfect amount of crunch on top.
