And the winner is…

…POLLO RICO!

In our informal poll of residents’ favorite restaurants in Wheaton, the winner was clear — Pollo Rico got the most votes from neighbors at the Flea Market this weekend.

Carlos, Alpha, Santiago, Megan, Maria, Ana and Flora -- brrr, it was cold!!

We spent Saturday morning at the weekly flea market talking to residents about Tuesdays Together and asking them about their favorite places to eat. Our new friend Midou highly recommended the African Grille — Alpha and I resolved to try it out this week. There was also a lot of conversation about the best Chinese restaurant in Wheaton.

If you’ve never been to the flea market, you should check it out! You can get anything from winter hats to dog food bowls to stereo systems. It’s right in the old Safeway parking lot at Reedie Dr. and Georgia Ave. every Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 3pm.

    It seems that TUESDAY together is not the only day to learn from you guys. NOW it is Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday together. Congratulations for such a wonderful spirit and commitment with our community. Way to go Megan!!!
