Spotluck Spotlight: Urban Heights

Urban Heights

Softshell crabs, the ocean, and that big yellow, red, and black flag might be things you associate with Maryland. But new kid on the block, Urban Heights, is adding Filipino and Southeast Asian cuisine to that list here in Bethesda. The upbeat, modern restaurant has plenty of patio space and a third floor deck that is perfect for summer dining or happy hour cocktails. 

We had a chance to sample some of the pan-asian cuisine, and we have to say, we’re ready to switch to the dark side.

These are the must-haves we recommend for your next visit!  


Chicken Adobo Sliders

Indulge in these crispy chicken bites smothered in sauce and perched on mini buns (of course, served with a side of spicy mayo).


Pork Belly Bites

Crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside, these pork belly bites will just melt in your mouth. 


Duck Rolls

Shredded duck meat and soft wraps contrast with tangy hoisin sauce and crunchy fresh vegetables to make up this delicious dish.


Banh Mi

A tasty variation of this classic Vietnamese sandwich is paired with paper-thin fried lotus root chips.

Urban Heights Beef

Tender beef, fresh sprouts and a variety of veggies are simmered in a delicious broth.
