Had to tell you about a recent discovery in Capitol Hill. Not only is Annapurna close enough to us to walk to, but they have everything  vegan clearly marked on the menu, and it was the best service we’ve had since I can remember. Not only is the food clearly marked vegan, but they know what it means. After ordering, the server inquired if we were vegan, and told us he’d hold the mint sauce, which has dairy.

(I’m going to go ahead and just apologize for the very poor pictures. Even though I have this amazing cameraphone now, this place is really dimly lit, and I didn’t want to keep drawing attention to us with multipe attempts at flash photography!)

We started with the vegetable pakoras (fried veggies battered in chickpea flour) which came with tamarind sauce and mango chutney.

Thomas had the Monk Stir-Fry Tofu and mixed vegetables stir-fried in Tibetan style with garlic and ginger sauce, served with brown rice $9.95. I snuck a little taste and the sauce was delicious.

I got the Saag Chana Fresh spinach cooked with Chick peas and freshly ground Indian spices $9.95. Even though I was incredibly full, I literally could not stop eating this until it was gone, save for some brown rice. Very nicely spiced.

We also got an order of roti bread, which served as a wonderful vehicle for the spiced sauces and chutney. Overall a wonderful meal, extremely attentive waitstaff, and a pleasant, cozy restaurant.
