Photos from Taste of Friendship Heights

September 21, 2008

Yesterday was taste of Friendship Heights and I stopped by to taste the cuisine of my new neighborhood.  All in all the event seemed like a success!  I got there a little later in the afternoon, but there was still a fair amount of food left at most stations.

My favorite was Indique Heights, serving chicken tikka with rice and mango lassi’s to drink.  The portions were generous and a part of the proceeds went to charity so what could be bad?

Famoso Restaurant and Grill attended, with plates of grilled vegetables which I didn’t try.  Rock Creek Restaurant sent their pastry chef with minature cupcakes and Lia’s brought their assistant chef who prepared samples of anti pastas and pastas.

Brighton Gardens sent their pastry chef who brought small pastries as well, and I tried a dark chocolate truffle dusted in bittersweet chocolate.  My grandma lives in Brighton Gardens and from the way she talks about the food, I wasn’t expecting much, but it was pretty tasty!

Since there aren’t that many restaurants in the area, I wish each brought more food to share, but it was a beautiful day, and across the street from my apartment, so the foodie in me had no excuse not to show up.
