Post your two cents: Best eats in U-District

Let's share what we consider some of the best places to eat in U-District. Here are my favorites:

For value, Pho is always a top choice. Than (sp?) Brothers down near 42nd is my favorite Pho place to go. Jack in the Box is always an option (doesn't get much cheaper than building a meal out of the dollar menu). Aladdin's Gyro-cery serves up $5 jumbo Gyros. I prefer the one north of 45th, but the one down the Ave as a surprisingly large and impressive (for the Ave) dining area.

Moving up a step, Jewel of India is probably my overall favorite place to eat on the Ave. It may look a little run down compared to some of the other crowded and overly popular Indian restaurants like Cedars or Shalimar, but it's run by this very friendly Indian woman and (presumably) her husband. The curry is very excellent, comes in large portions, and is served with unlimited rice. One curry entree can serve two people if you like a good amount of rice with your curry. I recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala. I won't let them take away the dish of curry until I've literally wiped it clean with a piece of nan.

Chipotle serves tasty burritos. And the new Pam's Kitchen serves the completely unique Trinidadian food. It seems mildly overpriced to me, but the booming business suggests otherwise.

For a nice date, Mama Melina is pretty much THE italian restaurant to go to in U-District. Further up Roosevelt, though, I tasted some of the best pasta I've ever had at Marcello's.

There are a couple of excellent options on University between 41st and 43rd. I recommend either Phad Thai at Thai-ger Room or a Brat and beer from Shultzy's Sausage.

If you're trying to get something cheap and late, you can't go wrong with A Pizza Mart up on l48th, they always have a slice of pizza waiting for you.

If you are trying for something a little more upscale, I agree with Jarf about the Thai-ger room, but also a great place is the Mongolian Grill.

Anybody been to the new Greek place kind of by Jack in the Box? That place seems like it could be pretty good.

I was always a big fan of Flowers.  I know it burnt down a while back.  Did it ever get rebuilt?  I haven't been over there in years.  For cheap, I also liked Aladdin's Falafel Corner.  I'm vegetarian though so that dictates my taste in restaurants.

Amen to Jarf's rec for Shultzy's.  Great food and atmosphere.  It's across the Ave and south of the Starbucks @ 42nd.
