Hiding in plain sight

We all love Chipotle's burrito bowls, Santucci's artisan sandwiches and Subway's fresh footlongs, but there are some places across the street that stay hidden in the shadows of those Four Corners staples. We pass by Four Corners every day before school, after school, and during school (just kidding, because we have closed lunch, of course!), yet somehow we ignore the independent eateries just a short walk away.

Samantha's Restaurant: more than just 'fine' cuisine

At first glance, it looks like nothing out of the ordinary it's a small place that sits innocuously off University Boulevard between two shady-looking parking lots. Yet, Samantha's serves some of the most delicious Latin American food in the DC area.

Hollywood East Cafe

Hollywood East Cafe is located in the "Restaurant Row" section of the Wheaton Mall located on Veirs Mill road in Wheaton about a 10 minute drive from Montgomery Blair High School. The restaurant itself seems kind of hidden under a canopy of the mall so it can be kind of tough to find from the outside. The Hollywood East Cafe was not a very big restaurant, it was smaller than it looked but still seemed to fit about 50-60 people on a busy day.

Not your average Tex-Mex restaurant

With their sultry colors, dim lighting and vibrant Spanish and Mexican art, the restaurant provides you with a piquant dining escape. Their cultural paintings and traditional Spanish and Mexican food come together to craft an experience that is not to be forgotten.
