    TaKorean and DC Dosa are solid. For sure grab a sweet nibble from CoCo Sala and a container of chickpea chorizo salad from the charcuterie/sandwich spot in the back left corner of the market.

    I love me some Union Market. It's around the block from my house which is uberly convenient. I love the ice cream shop. The best ice cream around. The Korean Taco shop is awesome as well.

    Union Market is a diamond in the rough in Northeast DC. A variety of artisan food and craft vendors, my favorite being Takorean, serving Korean-style tacos. A great place to spend an afternoon.

    Go hungry! So much great food and drink to try in this place! Plus there is lots of parking, so don't be scared away by what appears to be big crowds on the surrounding streets.

    Empanadas, arepas, dosa, ice cream, Korean tacos -- thats just what I was able to try. Wonderful farm to table recipes and a great location for either a date or to bring your friends. 💛💛💛

    The smoked hummus at Neopol is maddeningly good and completely genius. Also keep an eye out for smoked olives and some fantastic varieties of smoked fish. This is happy food.
