WASHINGTON, DC - Pappe

Pappe (literally means brother) is a new Indian restaurant that has opened in Logan Circle, Washington, DC. It is a good hangout for someone who aspires a modern setting with a traditional dining experience that is reasonably priced. The restaurant features food from the Indian state of Punjab and also has some dishes from the south. The service is excellent, the bread needs some work, and when I went there, they had just opened up so they did not have any desserts.

WASHINGTON, DC - Indique

I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoying a great start to your Tuesday morning… I wanted to share my experience at Indique in Cleveland Park. I had a business meeting and decided to go there. This location is one of the flagship Indian restaurants of Washington, DC and has stood the test of time for years. I heard that there has been a change in the chef, so I thought it would be a good idea to try the place. The ambience at Indique and Indique Heights (now closed) has always been great. The artwork on the walls, their hospitality, and selection of wines has always been good. It was not my first time here, so I...

WASHINGTON, DC - Rasika West End (Sunday Brunch)

This past weekend, I went to Rasika in the West End, which is perhaps the number one Indian restaurant, not only in DC, but in the entire United States. Sunday brunch is a concept that Rasika has recently added to their menu. It is a limited selection of curries and other items including Appetizers, Entrees, Breads, and Desserts, with Tea and Coffee. The array of options is clean and simple. I ordered Crab Poha as my appetizer. Poha, a flat rice dish lightly spiced and made with potatoes, cauliflower, or green peas, depending on the region. It is light and dry, usually with some coconut. The one I had at Rasika was made with crab; I thought it was an excellent...

ANNAPOLIS, MD - Basmati

BASMATI INDIAN CUISINE 2444 SOLOMONS ISLAND ROAD ANNAPOLIS, MD 21401 PHONE: 410.266.6355 http://www.basmatiofannapolis.com/   This past weekend, I went to Annapolis, MD. It was a mere one-hour drive from Washington, DC and surprisingly in the past 10 years, I had never been there before. I absolutely loved it! On my way back, I decided to try out this popular Indian restaurant called Basmati, which is the name of the highest quality rice grain that India produces. The restaurant is located away from downtown Annapolis. The smell of curries reached the parking lot as I was trying to park my car. The ambiance was great; it seemed like a Punjabi family owned the place. Staff is very friendly and attentive as soon...
