Welcome to Jaleo, the Spanish dining room that taught DC to love tapasspecifically patatas bravas, spicy chorizos, and roasted red peppers stuffed with goat cheese.
Jaleo is such a crowd-pleaser that it opened up secondary and tertiary locations in Bethesda, MD and Crystal City, VA.
Both chefs serve great sushi, have restaurants with small dining rooms, and share the address of 4822 Mac Arthur Boulevard but the similarities end there.

The menu is large, with items listed first in English, then in Greek.
While the food isn't innovative or gourmet, it is fresh and filling.
The menu here is very affordable, and I often wonder if they keep prices down by eschewing decoration altogether.
Regardless, in addition to all the must-haves on a Chinese restaurants menu, there are also a number of selections for the adventurous: pigs skin, sauted oysters, and plenty of frog.
In addition to being one of the few spots where all walks of DC life rub shoulders, it has also attracted a number of out-of-town (even celebrity) fans Bill Cosby being the most vocal among them.
Come be part of local history with a delicious order of chili cheese fries.
The beef souvlaki platter comes with seasoned meat skewers in pita bread, tzatziki (cucumber-yogurt dip), Greek salad, and french fries.
Since I'm a spinach fan, I've often ordered the spanakorizo, a blend of spinach and rice served with feta cheese, tomatoes, and olives.
The feta cheese in nearly every dish is the real thing!
I love spanakopita (spinach pie in layers of flaky filo dough) and usually begin with that.
Save room for the baklava (a classic dessert of filo pastry layered with crushed nuts and pure Greek honey)it's heavenly!
