The best thing about traveling and having friends living in other countries is that they take you to their favorite places. My friend Bethany, took me to Good Stuff Eatery which is very close to her home in Washington D.C, in the Capitol Hill area.

Good Stuff Eatery has several merits, but is especially known for this: it is one of the favorite places of the Obama family to eat hamburgers, in Washington D.C. The owner is the famous chef Spike Mendelsohn, who became especially known after participating in the fourth season of Top Chef, and who wanted to include in his menu the best of the American food, combining fresh and traditional flavors. Chef Spike made two of his most successful preparations as a tribute to Washington DC's most famous residents: "Prez Obama Burger" and "Michelle Melt."

The burgers have a very authentic flavor, homemade, the meat is amazing and their "shakes" are to die for! Everything is delicious here! So you can try what you like best and you will not be disappointed.

In Washington D.C, they have two restaurants: Capitol Hill and Georgetown, in addition to the Reagan National Airport.

(I went once to the Capitol Hill and several times to Georgetown restaurants, which is a super tourist and one of the most beautiful areas in Washington D.C.)

You can also find them in Crystal City, Arlington and in Chicago within walking distance of Millennium Park. And if you go to Saudi Arabia, they are there too!
