Date night w/ The Hubs!

Love this man.  

Best thing that ever happened to me.

Trying out Rasika!  

Supposedly the best Indian restaurant in greater Washington DC area!

Mango Mocktail Spritzer

My Mango mocktail was delicious and refreshing! 

Masala Chai

Palak Chaat - crispy baby spinach w/ yogurt, onions, tamarind and dates


Seriously one of the BEST things I've ever eaten in my entire life.

I know it looks like a blah indistinguishable mess.  But it was DELICIOUS!

It was flash fried spinach.. fried no longer then 7 seconds in chickpea oil with various other things sprinkled in.

I can't describe it it was INSANELY deliciously.. like the best kale chips you've ever had in your life x 234342398778976384765 but fried.. and more delicious. HAHAHAHA. So not helpful.  But seriously if you visit the DC area you MUST TRY THIS DISH!

Chicken Tikka Masala

This was good.. but not spicy enough...  honestly I've been spoiled with amazing Indian food having lived in the Bay area for half a decade.. Hello Berkeley anyone hahahah?

Khatta Meetha Black Cod Duo w/ Quinoa

Butterfish prepared two ways!  

Delicious.. rich and buttery.. but my heart still aches for my absolute favorite dish in the WHOLE WORLD.. Roy's Miso Butterfish in Hawaii!

I find that I always order Black Cod whenever I see it on a menu and then end up comparing it to Roy's Miso Butterfish and always feel let down.  I should probably stop doing that. BAHAHAHAHA.

Mint Paratha & Garlic Naan

Tandoori Chicken Tikka

This was surprisingly delicious.  I'm typically not a fan of Tandoori Chicken because I always feel like it comes out too dry from baking in the clay oven.  But the Hubs wanted to order this dish so I relented.  He did after all fly 99283749823749 miles just to take me out to dinner. ahahahaha.

Anyways suffice to say I was pleasantly surprised theirs was moist and delicious!  I was quite impressed with this dish.

Cucumber Pachadi - Yogurt, mustard seeds, curry & leaves

Our Yummy Spread!

IDK what's going on here.

My favorite part of a meal dessert!

(Yay right who am I kidding I love beginning, middle and end hahahahah) 

Apple Jalebi

Omg this was freakin' delicious!  

It was deep fried apples in a impossibly crispy and heavenly batter soaked in honey and pistachio's

Hello deliciousness!

Toffee & Date sticky pudding

This was delicious too!  It's a take on my favorite British dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding.. but theirs was sweetened with dates I think and I found myself rather quite enjoying it because sometimes I think the English version is a tad too sweet for me.

Love the decor of this restaurant - kitschy and modern!

Requisite bathroom shots!

Shizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz I'm shiny.  

I've forgotten just HOW ridiculously humid it is here on the east coast!

My verdict is that the restaurant was delicious!  But honestly if I were to go back I would just order one of the the flash fried spinach appetizers for myself and order a tandoori chicken to share it for some protein and eat it like a chicken salad BAHAHAHAHAHA.

And then dessert of course.  

Because their dessert is NOMMY.

Oh.. and did I mention I'm officially 30? 

Hahahaha Happy 30th B-Day to me! :p

Good-bye 20's Hello 30's!

30th B-Day Chanel Holy Grail Reveal!

Chanel J12 black ceramic w/ full diamond bezel!

#thankyousomuch #besthubbyever #soblessed 

Seriously had a heart attack when I saw the box.. didn't even think to take pictures for a reveal because my heart was beating so fast!

I've been drooling over this watch for years.. Y.E.A.R.S. like more than 5+ years!! The Hubs has asked repeatedly over the years if I wanted it because every time we stop look at it.. (I've looked at this watch in AT LEAST 5 different countries.. between the US, Europe and Asia bahahah) and every time I say no because I'm not really a "watch" person.. (I haven't worn a watch since cell phones started to tell time BAHAHAHA) and couldn't justify the purchase.

Let's just say I'm OFFICIALLY a "watch" person now!

As you can tell I cannot stop taking pictures of it wherever we go.  Whenever we stop anywhere to eat I immediately start snapping pics of my wrist bahahahahahah!

Thank you so much Hubby!!!
