What's for Lunch @Penn Commons

What's for Lunch@ is a periodic feature at Counter Culture in the Capital, which is a companion blog to The Prices Do DC. The concept is simple. My wife Judy and I enjoy a lunch at a DC eatery and post what we liked from the menu. Between us, we represent the 2 extremes of dining. Judy is relatively conservative with her choices and avoids all spicy foods (no heavy garlic, peppers or onions). I am an extremely adventurous eater and will try anything as long as it doesn't contain my 2 no-nos: asparagus or chicken feet. So whether you're more Judy or more me, we encourage you to follow our suggestions for a good meal at under $25 per person. Trust us. It will be good. We only post if we would recommend the meals.
Now this is way you make sure the gazpacho stays chilled
