Best Quirky Food Spot in D.C.: Fast Gourmet

Best Quirky Food Spot in D.C.: Fast Gourmet

It was a little over a month ago that I was first exposed to Fast Gourmet.  I saw a reader's note on Prince of Petworth's blog about a gourmet sandwich shop hidden inside of a "sketchy gas station" at the corners of 14th and W Streets in Northwest.

I was intrigued, but not yet convinced enough to try it out.  I mean, come on, good food in a gas station?  That's an oxymoron.  I needed more evidence.  So I went on Yelp to read more customer reviews, and what I saw...was astonishing.

Each review was more positive than last.  Each described how bizarre the location was, but also, how delicious the food was.

Top Chefs Cooking at Eatonville

Moroni & Brother's on Georgia Avenue Serves Up Incredible Pizza at Reasonable Prices

When I first heard of Moroni & Brother's restaurant on Georgia Avenue, I was a tad bit skeptical. 

Word on the street was that this small nook of a food joint served not only incredible wood-fire pizza, but also delicious Mexican and El Salvadorian fare.  In general, pizza and Latin American cuisine do not go together, but the claims were that at Moroni & Brother's, they made it work.

After eating there, I can testify that they do make it work.  And that's an understatement. 

I tasted the basic cheese pizza and it was magnificent.  I would honestly go so far as to say it might be the best pizza I've had in the city.  The pizza was thin-crust style, and was smothered with really high quality cheese.

But the party in my mouth didn't end there.
