Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit DC: Zaytinya

Visit DC: Zaytinya

I was talking to Ashley Nagaoka about upcoming trips during an event a few months ago, and mentioned I was going to DC for the first time.  I was excited to find out she worked there for several years and would be willing to give me a list of some must-eats.

At the top of her list was Zaytinya.  This Jose Andres and ThinkFoodGroup restaurant serves up Mediterranean small plates, which allowed our family to try a variety of foods!

Complimentary Pita Bread

Shish Taouk

Pork Belly Souvlaki

Soujouk Pide

Blue Catfish Skordalia




Greek Fries
Everything was fab - even the complimentary, never-ending baskets of pita (which one of my sons could not stop eating).

The Soujouk Pide was topped with spicy soujouk sausage, kasar cheese, and a 65-degree egg.

The Blue Catfish Skordalia was one of my faves.  The ouzo batter was light and tasty!

The Shish Taouk consisted of grilled chicken, sumac, onions, garlic, toum, and grilled tomatoes.  The chicken was seaoned perfectly!

The Pork Belly Souvlaki was another of my faves.  The pork belly was served with a jalapeno z'houg sauce.

Of course we just had to order our typical Mediterranean faves, like Spanakopita, Falafel, and Hommus.  The Greek Fries were pretty addicting.

I loved the food and the service at Zaytinya.

Thank you, Ashley, for the recommendation!
