The fried potato tots at made The Washington Post's list of "40 dishes Washingtonians shouldn't live without in 2013," released Thursday.
Post editors taste-tested dishes at restaurants throughout the DC region to develop the list, sifting through hundreds of reader nominations.
Along with Food, Wine & Co's famous tots, the fried chicken with spiced salt and basil at Rockville's Jumbo Jumbo Cafe and the Mongolian beef with cumin at Joe's Noodle House, also in Rockvile, both made the list.
The three were the only county restaurants represented this year, a departure from last year's list, in which significantly more Montgomery County restaurants were spotlighted—from Gaithersburg to Silver Spring to Potomac, where the "popcorn of the day" at Founding Farmers made the list.
Do you think the potato tots at Food, Wine and Co. are a dish Washingtonians shouldn't live without? Should more Montgomery County restaurants have been represented in this year's list? Tell us in the comments.
