Jalsa -- Indian fast food
This is my new favorite Indian place. Ate there 2 times in a week. There is a grocery store next to it and also bought some snacks from the bulk bins afterwards. The chaats are wonderful, also tried the Panner Tikka Masala and that was good too. They do not mess around with their spices, and mild was plenty hot for me so if you have any doubt as to the "hotness" level stick with mild or medium for the first time.
Sigh. Why do all good Indian "fast food" places have to located approximately a trillion miles away from me? This place looks great and I will likely never try it. Because I go to Columbia Heights/HIlltop (I've never even heard of Hilltop but to be fair lots of people have never heard of where I live either!) ... well, never.
