Three Hyattsville restaurants made the annual influential Washingtonian “Cheap Eats” list.
Cafe Azul-Caracas de Ayer, which serves authentic Venezuelan food; Spice 6, a Chipotle-style Indian restaurant; and Shagga Coffee & Restaurant, which serves Ethiopian food, all made the Washingtonian‘s list this year.
That’s something of an achievement considering that the magazine searches from a huge geographical area in Washington, Virginia and Maryland to compile its list.
The rankings seems to be an indication that the rest of the greater metro area is realizing that the Route 1 corridor has a lot to offer.
Earlier this year a Washington Post critic noted that a short drive up Route 1 in Beltsville is an international food hotspot with tasty Vietnamese, Kenyan, Guatemalan, Filipino, Peruvian, and Greek dining options.
