Visit DC: Jaleo by Jose Andres

I asked a friend who lived in Virginia for a bit for dining suggestions, and one of them was Jaleo by Jose Andres.

One of the coolest things about this restaurant is that there are a couple of foosball tables that you can dine on.  My kids absolutely loved that they could play while they waited for their food.  I appreciated that as well, as it was a fun way for them to pass the time (although the germaphobe in me did get a little paranoid).

The sandwiches were really good. We had to wait a while for the chicken in the Futbol Club Barcelona to be prepped, but it was a filling sandwich, which also included bacon, lettuce, tomato, and peppers. My fave of the two sandwiches was the JLT, which consisted of ibérico ham, lettuce, tomato, Manchego cheese and mayo.

The kids loved the Croquettas de Pollo (chicken fritters) and especially loved how they were served in a shoe! They also enjoyed the Chistorra Envuelta en Patata Frita - chorizo wrapped in crispy potato with a membrillo alioli.

The chorizo casero con puré de patatas al aceite de oliva - house-made traditional chorizo with olive oil mashed potatoes and cider sauce was yummy, and I could see why the Patatas Bravas is a Jaleo favorite. Fried potatoes served with a spicy tomato sauce and alioli, was a simple, yet very tasty dish!

Service was great, and Jaleo is definitely a family-friendly spot to take the kids (ask for the foosball table!).
