Full Kee in DC’s Chinatown, 509 H Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-371-2233 [Washingtonian | WaPo | NYT | City Paper | food-plan | openlist | Gayot]
The snow pea pod leaves here, or whatever they are called, are great. As are the dumplings in the soup. Some mediocre dishes, but if you order well this place is a knock-out. Mostly Cantonese. Written up by The New York Times as one of the most interesting places in DC.
Full Kee in VA, just off Leesburg Pike and Columbia Pike, across route 7 from Borders Books in Baileys Crossroads Center (in the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s at 5847 Leesburg Pike) 5830 Columbia Pike, Falls Church, VA, 703-575-8232 [Washingtonian | WaPo | City Paper | openlist | Citysearch]
So far better than the original in DC, it is excellent Chinese food. Be adventurous when you order. Excellent lobster, dumplings, tofu dishes. Critics laud the casseroles, and while they have their merits, they don’t give me much visceral enjoyment along the yummy dimension. For casseroles, go to Hong Kong Palace.
