Are there specialty meat stores in DC?

For excellent meat, particularly pre-spiced hamburger patties - go to

Rockville Gourmet
1331-C Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852-1444

Their burgers are some of the best I've ever grilled!!

Halal fried chicken?

The Popeye's in Arlington offers halal chicken - you have to have a minimum order of 12 or 20 pieces I think ... call them for details

Indian Food in Arlington/Falls Church

Have heard great things about Tandoori Nights in Clarendon ...

New kabob place in Tenleytown: Hungry Tiger

Being a huge fan of Persian food, I was delighted to find out that Hungry Tiger opened up in my neck of the woods. I eat there quite often because its hard to get out to Shamshiry (best Persian food EVER!) and its quite good. Their Kubideh is excellent, so is their chicken kabob, and I've even tried their burgers. They also offer an excellent eggplant appetizer, similar to Baba Ghanoush (but better!) The most important part of a Persian meal is the rice - and they've got it spot on. Overall - two thumbs up!

For good Pakistani/Afghani food - I'd got to Kabab palace ... but for Persian, Hungry Tiger is second only to Shamshiry.
