My new favorite eatery

I have a new favorite eatery in DC: Java Green, located on 19th between L & K Streets (close to the Farragut metro stations). They’re a vegetarian place that has a lot of vegan and some Korean foods. They offer sandwiches, soups, specials (some of which are similar to bento boxes), and really good drinks.

You have to try the green tea frappe. I had the non-dairy version, and I couldn’t believe how good it was (Starbucks, eat your heart out). I spoke with the owner while I was there last time, and he is a tea snob in the best way. He creates all the tea drinks himself, and uses high-quality matcha tea, as opposed to the more common sencha type. They also have iced unsweetened green tea, which is something that’s pretty hard to find. I’m a bit of a tea snob myself, so I tend to notice these types of things.

The food is really good, too. I should warn that some of the sandwiches are a bit on the small side, so you might want to get a small side to go with it. Their “Green Specialties,” though, come with a lot of food.

Java Green has lunch specials during the week, and they recently started to open on Saturdays. They’re worth checking out, especially if you’re one of the many people who work in the area.

    I work on Connecticut between L and K, and walk over that way for lunch when the weather is nice… I’ll give Java Green a try this week.
