Good catch by Wheaton Patch: Don Rockwell posted about his meal at Nava Thai last week on DCDining.com. Interesting, non-shocking note about Nava’s use of MSG. Overall positive review (also non-shocking!), and it’s nice when a luminary like Rockwell gives a Wheaton restaurant some love.
Around the same time Rockwell was rockin’ the Nava crispy duck, I was changing it up with some crispy duck kaprow takeout from Ruan. Of course the “crispy” part doesn’t really survive the takeout process, but the dish was still really good, maybe not quite as complex in flavor as the Nava version, and a bunch of tiny, stealthy bones to pick through. Simplified math: Wheaton + Duck + Kaprow = mmmmmmm.
