Quick Hits – Rose’s Luxury’s Pork Sausage, Habanero, & Lychee Salad

Hey folks. This is the first of my new “Quick Hits” series which I’m going to use for short reviews since I’ve experienced a lot in my travels that don’t really require a full blog post.  For this entry, I want to highlight the single best dish I’ve had in Washington, D.C.

Rose’s Luxury in the Barrack’s Row region of D.C. has a changing menu, but the one constant is their Pork Sausage, Habanero, and Lychee Salad.  Truth be told, when I went to Rose’s Luxury, we didn’t even order it.  They had brought it to our table by mistake, but when they realized it wasn’t ours, in a classy move they told us, “It’s on the house”.  I’m glad they made the mistake.  The salad, while it does sound weird, was amazing.

It comes in a bowl with all the ingredients separated which you have to mix together.  The first scoop I ate blew my mind, it was the strangest mix of flavoring that worked perfectly.  Spicy, and sweet.  Meaty and fruity.  Soft, but a little crunchy as well.  It’s worth going to Rose’s Luxury just to try it.
