Food find: Naan and Beyond

Pardon my blogging hiatus. The last two weeks of graduate school were busy and I didn't have any Internet at home. I was living like the Amish, really.
Last week was a week of last -- last essay, last story, last class, last lecture, etc. I'm a sentimental person so every last was meaningful. You only get a master's degree once and this has been quite a little road. So for our last covering conflict class (a course dedicated to teaching journalists how to write about a variety of war and hostile environments), we had Indian food from Naan and Beyond.

Now I didn't know a thing about the food I was enjoying, but luckily, the restaurant in National Place's food gallery is owned by my classmate Ambreen Ali's relative. So I found out that the pastry item in the background is a veggie samosa with potato and spinach -- really filling. There's also some rice, which was pretty tasty. There's also a mint sauce in the little package, tandoori chicken. If only I could remember what the rest of it is called ... the other dish was peas, cabbage and potato and then chickpeas in a sauce. It was all very delicious, spicy and filling. If only I knew what it was so I could get it again. Oh well, I'm now 730 miles away from Washington, so I guess I'll live without.
I hear they have a lunch buffet, but what we ate was made fresh for our class and was apparently tastier than normal.
