Indian Food this weekend in Reston


Recommended Posts

Because I spent most of my life living in different parts of the world I learned to eat EVERYTHING. (eat when offered, not " like" or " enjoy." Until Monica's crab dinner at the Spice Xing, where I head over heels fell in love with the aroma, and the complexity in the back of my tongue of the spice combinations, I had very little interest in Indian food. I would eat it when offered, but it has never been my first choice. First of all I hated "curry," that dirty-yellow stuff that came out of McCormick jars and made everything taste at least three days old. When reading a restaurant menu, if the word "curry" was in the description of a dish, I would skip to the next dish. For the life of me, I could not understand why anyone would like a goo of mostly overcooked vegetables and meats. Now that I've seen the light, (Halleluja!) I am very interested in real Indian food.

This morning, to my total surprise, my daughter, who is flying home from Bosnia tomorrow evening, e-mailed me the following link:


I forwarded this link to a journalist friendof mine from "that part of the world" and he shared with me the info he had about the event. Has anyone on Rock attended any of their previous events? Is it worth driving all the way from Arlington? Any opinions or advice would be appreciated. Here is the info:

"Dear friends,
