Gas and Good Food
The DIY menu is a centerpiece of the restaurant.
Fast Gourmet in Washington, D.C., caters to commuters, cabbies and
a loyal customer base with its unique and simple food offer. The owners
stick to basics — the menu board is plywood and chalkboard
paint. And in a city that relies heavily on public transportation, Fast
Gourmet offers ethnic cuisine for its large taxicab demographic.
