Margaritas with Michelle Obama? I'm In.

This interview with ABC News affiliate WJLA with First Lady Michelle Obama has some fun reveals about her Washington favorites. She talks about their family's favorite things to do in and around DC.

Of course, my favorite part is where she talks food.  Ben's Chili Bowl gets a shout out as "Barack's" favorite spot, but the First Lady has not been yet.  For fast food, she digs Chef Spike Mendehlson's Good Stuff Eatery, which I have to say, makes a mean burger and marshmallow shake.

The highlight for me was her talking about Chef Jose Andres' Oyamel.  This ones just around the corner from my office and one of my staples.  We share in a love of their margaritas, but the First Lady says to get the tamales and the tres leches cake... sounds like I need to go back and try those.

If Mrs. Obama ever reads this blog, I'd recommend she try Chef Andres fish tacos and the ceviche special (I like how he improvises with what's seasonal).
