Rasika Tasting menu?
Hey All, i have reservations tonight for Rasika, finally going to try it out after reading the rave reviews. For anyone that has been, should we order the tasting menu or just order from the menu? Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you!
Hey all, just wanted to say the food was good, the experience was great. As someone else said, first time there the tasting menu is the way to go, i never would of ordered that black cod dish as im not a big fish person but it was AWESOME, melts in your mouth, best fish ive ever had.
1. Some kind of crunchy salad = AWESOME
2. Clams in a green coconut chutney sauce = AWESOME
3. Shrimp with something that looked like a indian sausage which was VERY spicy. = Good
4. Black cod fish = Melt in your mouth AWESOME!
5/6. Lamb curry/chicken curry dishes. They were good, but was disappointed at the main dishes, nothing special
7. Desert, which was about 5 different types of indian desserts including icecream = Good.
Was a good dining experience, the place was nice, the service was good, took about 2 hours to do. The only thing that was spicy was the sausage thing, im sure they will change it up if you asked them too though.
Definitely order the fried spinach appetizer. It's wonderful. I loved getting the tasting menu the first time, as even though I had had parts of it before, it gave me a sense of what the kitchen there can do. I would recommend that one of you should get the regular menu, and one of you get the vegetable one, so that you get a whole assortment of dishes. Also, there is some overlap between the two tasting menus. Our waiter allowed us to sub in another appetizer so we didn't have two of the same thing. Enjoy!
Yes! You must get the fried spinach appetizer. It's one of my best dishes I've had in a long time. We liked it so much we ordered it twice :)
We skipped the tasting menu but pretty much ended up creating our own by sharing appetizers and 2 entrees, which they divided up for us nicely, 1 side and a dessert. It was a lot of food but all very delicious.
