Given that I ran into Ezra at Spice Express (1025 Vermont Avenue NW) today at lunch, I think it’s safe to say that the IFA officially believes that Spice Express is a good place to go for a cheap Indian lunch. To be clear, the quality of the food here is not what you could get at Rasika or at a casual place in Jackson Heights or London or even Northern Virginia. But for a conveniently located takeout lunch in downtown DC, the two curries & rice for $6.99 is a great deal. I like the channa masala and the sometimes-offered spicy potatoes; I’ve heard people say good things about the okra, but I think okra’s gross.
