The D.C. suburb of Germantown offers the best of city living with a small-town feel. Though many come to the area expecting old-fashioned German cuisine, the dining options in this community are considerably more global in scope. There are several good Mexican and Italian eateries. The tiramisu is not to be missed. Still, it's the abundance of pan-Asian offerings that really impress. At a popular Japanese restaurant, the sushi and authentic ramen are so well presented they're almost too pretty to eat. Thai tofu seaweed soup and drunken noodles taste like Asian comfort food. Locals also rave about the Indian eateries with dishes like butter chicken and all-you-can-drink mango lassi.
