Known for its spices, Indian fare jolts the taste buds in a manner that kissing an electrical socket could never match. Enjoy shockingly good cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian fare at Harvest Of India in Herndon, Virginia.
Harvest Of India instills epicurean bliss in its packs of patrons through a menu of halal Northern Indian fare. Chefs carefully cut pockets of naan ($3.50) from jeans made of bread, yielding carbs that are “hot, fluffy, and perfect for dipping into sauces,” according to the Washingtonian. Appetizers such as pea-stuffed samosas ($4.50) or masala chicken tenders ($5.95) can also prime stomachs for the main meal. Twelve tandoori specials train to overtake taste buds in the depths of a clay oven, emerging as powerfully seasoned entrees such as the chicken til kebab ($13.95) or alwaini macchi, a catch of the day marinated in carom and other spices ($15.95). As they eat, patrons can drink in the warm orange hues of Harvest of India’s walls and chairs or rake a brightly colored leaf pile from its plant-adorned carpets.
SupperClub of India
When creating their expansive menu of what the Washingtonian lauds as a "representative selection of the finer cookery of India," recently merged with Harvest of India, SupperClub of India's chefs infuse each dish of northern Indian cuisine with their own personal styles. Meat-laden dishes include jumbo prawns marinated with mint before being grilled over charcoal and chicken cooked in a blend of almonds and cream. Along with their solid lineup of entrees, eggplant smothered in spicy tomato onion masala and other vegetable-based dishes are among items that inspired the Washingtonian to name SupperClub of India the "perfect restaurant" for vegetarians. Meals unfold in a dining room where Indian music underscores the sound of skilled diners chewing in syncopation.
