Indian flavor flair - Edit

Indigo is a must go to eatery around the H Street corridor. It is just off the beaten path, but that doesn't stop this place from being crazy busy almost all the time it's open.

When you walk inside Indigo, you will feel transported to another place. The walls are adorned with beautiful words of thanks from patrons and inspirational quotes/ sayings from the proprietors. The flat screen tv on the front wall plays Bollywood pop music videos with sound to round out the full experience. There are a few tables inside, but when the weather allows, the outdoor seating increases seating by 3-4 fold. The wall of the menu may be overwhelming in its chalkboard mom and pop style boxed off list of items, but for vegans, it's easy! Look to the veg corner, which itself is split into vegan and vegetarian. Awesome.

Dishes are unique among Indian offerings in DC, along with traditional dishes. If you are ordering to go, you can call ahead or order there: one side or a vegan plate of chickpeas and rice with your choice of two more dishes. It's pretty fairly priced, and the flavors are lovely. If you order the thali, with 5 choices and rice, you have to eat it in the restaurant. If you really want more food, just order two of the $11 options and add a side. Ha ha! They also have wraps and bread- ask which ones are vegan, as there are a few.

The vegan dishes vary but generally number around 10 choices like pumpkin (top 3!), okra, potatoes, peas with mushrooms, cauliflower (my fav!), green beans (second fav), chick peas, eggplant, cabbage and zucchini. If you order the $11 rice with chickpeas plus 2 sides, you will be happy and satisfied. The thali has a little bit more food but more variety: however, some of the sauces taste similar, so I prefer just the $11 option. Yum! Oh, samosas too!

Pros: Great vegan choices, Pumpkin, green bean and cauliflower!, Fast!

Cons: Can be really busy, Can't order thali to go
