From the annals of the wacky. When visiting all these exotic spaces in this great state of Virginia, I try to eat at local restaurants and avoid the chains. Not that I have anything against particular chains (if you need me I can probably be found at the local Starbucks, and while traveling, Panera is a likely lunch stop); but why not experience the local cuisine.
This week in Fairfax I had a chance to do just that and ate at a local Indian restaurant called the Bombay Bistro. While I am usually a lamb vindaloo fanatic, I decided to go for something different and when for the tandori rockfish. I took this photo after I took care of the poor animal (I'll be entering this fish into a photo challenge that I love to participate with). The meal tasted great, the service was good, it was an overall very pleasant experience.
We were teaching a stormwater class in Fairfax and the other days I spent with the team in more chain like restaurants, but then I am a bit more adventurous. We had a good time, watching Germany win against Brazil and my team (Holland) loose against Argentina on the big screen. Oh well.
