Tom Sietsema, restaurant critic for the Washington Post, recently named two Rockville restaurants to his list of Best Cheap Eats in the DC region:
- Carbon (100 S. Gibbs Street in the Town Square), a Peruvian restaurant specializing in charcoal-grilled chicken
- Michael’s Noodles (10038 Darnestown Road in the Travilah Square Shopping Center–actually just beyond the city boundaries), a Taiwanese restaurant featuring soups, dim sum, the usual Chinese entrees, and lots of noodle dishes.
And in nearby Gaithersburg, he included Burma Road (617 S. Frederick Avenue, two blocks north of Shady Grove). That’s really impressive for our area, considering Tom had only 17 restaurants on his list!
