Minerva: A favorite taste of India

Leave a comment

Another review of my work on this blog again shows me that I continue to promote a diet of fried food and beer — and flash fiction.And although those pursuits are not without their merits, I do have other interests and I do avail myself of Northern Virginia’s wonderful ethnic cuisines.

A longtime favorite in the Fairfax area is Minerva, where we’ve enjoyed their authentic Indian offerings for the past nine years. Among our favorites: the spinach pakora appetizer, the chicken vindaloo (for those who love a very spicy treat), and from the vegetarian menu, the navaratan korma. If you’re feeling hungry, get the dinner; if you’re looking for something not as filling, get the entrees a la cart and order a side of their fabulous naan or rice.
