Date of Visit: March 14, 2019
As we knew there were a lot of restaurants around the Capital One Arena/Chinatown area, we decided to walk home from the National Building Street via 7th St. We ended up at Jaleo, which is a tapas restaurant (we were kind of aiming for tapas as Dad knew there was a Mexican tapas in this area that we were sort of heading to).
Mik really enjoyed the height of the table. It was just right for him and as long as he wasn't at the end spot there was no barrier to roll under the table to get close to the table.
We each did the lunch menu that allows you to pick one from each section of a select menu for just $20 person. Mik started with a potato dish that he really enjoyed.
Mik also enjoyed the pineapple sage soda.
His second selection was the chicken fritters. His third selection was the shrimp, which I apparently forgot to take a photo of. He also enjoyed them, but didn't finish as he was getting full and wanted to save room for desert.
For desert he chose sorbet, but he also ate most of the flan Dad had chosen (and again I forgot to take a photo).
Overall we really enjoyed eating at Jaleo. Also, at only $20 per person it was a good price for a meal in DC.
