Slice of Milk Bars Crack Pie by Daniel Zemanss Crack Pie by Daniel Zemans

Maybe you’ve heard someone refer to the palak chat at Rasika as “spinach crack” or seen a food blog describe Bonchon’s Korean-style fried wings as “crack chicken.” But what about eateries that go so far as to call something crack-like on their menus? It’s curious that so many D.C. restaurants and bakeries casually play up their food’s addictive properties by comparing it to a drug. Here are six of them.
