Toli Moli Burmese Bodega, web site, 1309 5th St NE, Union Market, Washington, DC, phone not given, often they close by eight. (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Google | WaPo | Washingtonian | Ylp]
Mostly a southeast Asian grocery, there is also a counter window where you can order a limited number of dishes. The mushrooms in coconut curry and noodles are outstanding, one of DC’s best Asian dishes, and by the way not really about the mushrooms. The catfish curry is strong. Some of the dishes seem to be available on an opportunistic basis. Maybe this is the best place in Union Market right now? Not a full service restaurant, but if you are reading this guide probably you should try this place.
