Eat their lunch: Washington Commanders
The Bears host the Washington Commanders at 7:15 tonight at Soldier Field.
Each week we turn to our Axios colleagues in opponent cities for a peek into their authentic game day spread.
- For this game, we asked former Chicagoan — but current Washingtonian — Axios Today host Niala Boodhoo.
🏛 Niala: Hello!
- Fun fact: This is my third time living in DC.
🥫 Mumbo sauce: Just like the owners of the Commanders, D.C.'s claim to mumbo sauce is not without controversy — but it's still the reigning king of wings in the District. The red/orange sauce is more sweet than sour, and we drench our fried chicken in it.
🍗 Peruvian chicken: Even if the area's first Peruvian chicken place didn't survive the pandemic, options for Peruvian-style chicken abound across Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., from the fast casual to the fancy.
- Crab cakes — just maybe not with Maryland blue crab — are good for the fancy palate.
💭 Justin's thought bubble: I'm in for all three of these tonight.
- Although mild sauce over mumbo sauce any day 😍
