|Three tacos for $10 at Chaia|
So, when I heard they had opened shop in Georgetown, I knew I wanted to check it out. I met my long-time friend and fellow food explorer, McCealaig O'Clisham, for lunch at Chaia Georgetown. When I walked in, boom, I was greeted with a line. But, at least this one was inside and moving fast.

The restaurant is adorable and tiny, so scoring a table is an art. But, as soon as this winter weather breaks, I would recommend loading up on tacos and heading down the hill to lunch at Georgetown Waterfront Park.
I tried one of everything that was on the menu that day. My favorite was a huge surprise to me -- the roasted beet taco. I used to hate beets. But the roasted sweet beets were topped with goat cheese and the pairing was perfect. A close second was the kale and roasted potato taco. The menu changes often as Chaia is almost exclusively sourced from local farms. I can't wait to come back when spring ingredients come in season.

My only regret was that I got flustered in the line and forgot to add the fried egg to my tacos. Next time, Chaia... in the spring...
