I am exhausted from a long day of exploring in the city (I sound like an old person), but I will make the time to blog about my adventures in Union Market with my roommate Cate. For all you folks living in DC, I hope Union Market is your go to spot for weekend shopping and eating because it most certainly is for me. It was my first time going there, and I don’t know why I haven’t gone earlier. I seem to surprise myself more and more with this city and how much there is to see and do.
Union Market has something for everybody. This little market spot has amazing espresso for those coffee lovers to delicious baked goods for those with a sweet tooth. Good thing, I qualify for both. Cate already has been to the market, so she knew what to expect. I wasn’t aware that my favorite Korean barbeque taco place, TaKorean was located at Union Market. The last time I had these heavenly/out of this world tacos was at an outdoor movie screening in NOMA. The TaKorean food truck was parked with a few other food trucks, and I just happen to crave some Korean bbq tacos that night. Lucky for me, I have met with them again.
The surrounding area around Union Market also has Dolcezza’s Gelato, which I do recommend the push pop sorbet and gelato. The flavors range from lemon basil to pear. And if you’re in the mood to watch a film, there is a theater nearby called Angelika Popup, and it plays the latest independent films. Please check out the area if you’re looking for good food and a little adventure for culture, art (fun murals around the area), and desserts.
