Donburi is a Japanese dish that basically translates to something awesome on top of rice -- so just hop on up to their counter and choose your something awesome: panko breaded shrimp, pork, sweet and savory sauce, half-cooked egg, pickled radish, and jalapeño are all in the mix.

4. Amsterdam Falafel 14th St 1830 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009 (U Street)

DC's favorite falafel shop's 14th Street location offers the same goodness as its older brothers in the city -- open late, especially on the weekends, expect to stuff your face with pitas, falafel balls, and bowls that you can fill up at their toppings bar (they charge by the pound, so exercise some restraint if you want to keep it cheap).
