Taste What Makes Wah Mee Restaurant a Neighborhood Institution Near Rhode Island Row

Feature image

If you walk by Wah Mee Restaurant or glance at the website, you might think that it is just like every other Chinese take-out joint you’ve ever seen in your life. But don’t be fooled by its ordinary appearance—this place is a DC landmark that has been in business for more than 60 years! Even the president has made a trip to Brookland to stop in to Wah Mee, thanks to its reputation for serving scrumptious Chinese-American food, despite the no-frills atmosphere.

Favorites on the budget-friendly menu include old reliables like General Tso’s chicken or sweet and sour pork, but for a real treat, regulars suggest you try the house-made Shanghai noodles. There is a small dining room, but if you’d rather eat at home at Rhode Island Row, Wah Mee also does a brisk take-out and delivery business (place your order online for the quickest service).
