pike/pine cheap eats

I often find myself in need of a quick and inexpensive (but always good!) bite on Capitol Hill – as I am there quite often for a certain someone’s improv shows at the Odd Duck Theater near Nuemo’s.  (You too can see the fun improv antics of  Quiet Monkey Fight)  While there are several middle price range places we like to frequent around there before or after the shows – Oddfellows’ Hall, Boom Noodle, Quinn’s for example – some times you just need a quick cheap bite.  For that, my two go-to places that fit the bill are Po Dogs and Pike Street Fish Fry.  Po Dogs has a variety of creative toppings and styles for your hot dog – scrambled eggs on one, peanut butter on another, some deep-fried, some wrapped in an egg roll all come to mind – but my personal favorite is the veggie-dog South of the Border.  They also have very good skinny fries if you need an accompaniment.  I also happen to love their gun wallpaper.    Pike Street Fish Fry has a revolving menu of battered or grilled fish to choose from, ranging from oysters to salmon, along with sides like asparagus or green beans, depending on the season – all done to order.  Their batter is so light and this displaced southerner has found their catfish to be the best in town.  Both happen to be open late night and serve beer and wine.  All good things for a quick, inexpensive meal, but when you still want good food in this neck of the woods.

  1. Oh – and my buddy Gabe says that their pork belly sandwich rivals Paseo’s! Those might be fighting words, but worth a test….
