2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

This tiny walk-up has established itself as a trusty late-night destination for hot, freshly prepared food in the midst of a chaotic 18th Street lineup of bars, pizza shops, and fast-food joints. Partiers in Adams Morgan have come to depend on Amsterdam’s double-fried potatoes ($2.75 to $3.85; the Belgian mayo is the best dipper) and Israeli-style falafel—fried-to-order chickpea patties stuffed in warm pitas—which can be dressed up with such toppings as a tart yogurt and dill sauce, earthy hummus, and veggies like beets, red cabbage, and eggplant. Yes, it’s open until 4 am on weekends, but these terrific little pockets are worth fueling up on anytime.
