Many of us haven’t stepped on an airplane or gone on our usual international getaways in a very long time. However, as any foodie knows, there’s another way to help fulfill your wanderlust – by cooking up meals inspired by your favorite destinations.
Washington, DC is an amazing multicultural area and the many international food markets in the area reflect that, offering cuisine from everywhere from China to Cuba. Check out these markets so you can find all the ingredients you need to create a meal from around the world right at home in your RESA apartment.
Rice Market, located at 1608 14th St NW, Washington, DC which is a quick and easy 10 minute drive from your RESA apartment, is in the same building as Rice Restaurant, creating a one-stop shop for all Thai and Asian needs.
Rice Market carries a well-curated collection of Thai foods, beer, wine, sake, flowers and home goods. In their food section, you can also find ready-to-eat meals, prep-to-cook meals as well as a selection of groceries.
