Rasika

May 16, 2010

A few weeks ago, I took my boyfriend out for dinner at Rasika to celebrate his 31st birthday. The weather in D.C. was still cool and crisp, perfect for a night of slow-cooked, comforting Indian cuisine. We had heard rave reviews of Rasika and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. This place definitely lives up to the hype.

Rasika’s menu offers authentic, classic Indian flavors served in a non-traditional way. Most of the dishes are tapas-style rather individual entrees. This is ideal for first-timers (like us) who want to sample a variety of menu items. Another plus is the expansive vegetarian options so that veggies (like me) aren’t limited to just a few selections.

We sampled a variety of dishes, including the house specialty Palak Chaat. This dish is amazing. It features crispy fried spinach leaves that are so light they almost melt in your mouth. Unique and delicious. We also had the paneer masala, pan fried okra, mahi-mahi in a spicy tamarind sauce and a side of garlic naan. Everything we ate was delicious. I only wish we’d had room to eat more!

At the end of the meal we had a couple of desserts to finish us off. We sampled the beignets (served with mind blowingly good cardamom ice cream!) and the chocolate samosa. Both were good, but were almost a let-down after the incredibly delicious main meal. Next time I think I’ll skip dessert and order another savory dish.

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

The heart of your writing whilst sounding reasonable in the beginning, did not really settle properly with me after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I however have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you would do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly end up being fascinated.

That cardamom ice cream is killer. You can get it on a dessert plate with 2 sorbets. When I went they had black cherry with black pepper sorbet…it was amazing.
