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.
