Football Food for Eagles Fans – Week 12, DMV Edition


While this week's selected food looks as delicious as ever, I think it's the fact that Mark took the opportunity to take a knock not only at their football team, but also the fact that DC lacks any "discernible food character" that I enjoyed so much.

From Mark's flickr page:

It's never easy or simple, is it?

Eagles get stymied by too many penalties and I get hit with a city (Washington, D.C.) with no discernible food character.

But, Eagles got it done with a win and I think I did too. Though I had to go to Virginia to get it.

Remember when Pres. Obama and VP Biden went out to lunch? They went to Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, VA.

This is my take on Ray's B.I.G. Poppa (We Love It When You Order B.I.G. Poppa)
burger: At least 10 oz. of grilled hamburger with a peppercorn and
seasoning crust (I used McCormick's Montreal Steak seasoning) , fresh
grated Jack cheese, mushrooms sauteed in brown butter and sage, grilled
red onion between a grilled bun laced with ketchup and Creole mustard.

Not exactly like the B.I.G. Poppa, but what the Ray. It tasted great.

On the side, baked salted-and-rosemary flat fries.

In the glass...Philadelphia Brewery's Rowhouse Red. What can I say....still cleaning out the T-Day fridge.

Off to a new adventure. Maybe I pick up something new to make....

Thanks to Mark as always. And now I'm curious what percentage of you just decided you need to hit up Five Guys or your closest burger joint for lunch and a burger almost assuredly inferior to Mark's concoction?
