Eating to Live on the Outside: Nirvana

Finally! It’s Saturday. I thought this week would never end. Okay, it’s time for a “trip” to Washington, DC. Today, Eating to Live on the Outside heads to Nirvana in the nation’s capital.

Alright, let’s see what he got here. Well, it looks good, a bunch of veggies and other goodies. Here’s a quick list of stuff I might order:

Amiri Khaman

  • Steamed cooked lentil cakes; lentils are always cool.

Sambar

  • Lentil soup cooked with vegetables and roasted spices; more kudos for lentils.

Awakening Salad

  • Romaine lettuce, tomato and spring onion served with a tart peppery dressing; looks like a good one.

Chick Peas Salad

  • Chick peas, tomatoes, and onion, with fresh cilantro and a lemon dressing; another winner here.

Nirvana Salad

  • Cabbage, tomato, cucumber, apple, grapes and more with fresh cilantro and spicy and tangy dressing; I love combining fruit and veggies in a salad!

Vegetable Biryani

  • Basmati rice cooked with mixed vegetables, herbs, cashews and spices; I dig it, I’m okay with the rice, no worries.

Bisi Bele Huli Anna

  • Basmati rice cooked with lentils, vegetables and cashews; cashews are awesome, same deal with the rice.

Uru

  • Baked eggplant cooked to perfection with a chef’s special blend of spices; pretty simple, I like it.

Bharva Subji

  • Cherry potatoes, eggplant and peppers stuffed with specially roasted spices; another good one.

Aloo Gobi

  • Potatoes and cauliflower curry; no problems here.

Chole masala

  • Chick pea curry from North India; this will help you fart.

Tarka Dal

  • Yellow split pea lentil cooked with ginger, green chilies, cilantro, and tomatoes blend of spices and flavors; not a bad choice either.

Yeah, I think Nirvana is very doable. Plenty to choose from! As for me, I’m going with the Nirvana Salad or maybe the Bisi Bele Huli Anna.

Now I need your help. Flip through Nirvana’s menu and let me know what you’d order. Do tell, do tell!
