Hidden gems – Haandi

Have you ever had a favorite restaurant that you’ve gone back to years later and found that not only is it still there, but it’s better than ever.  I do.  Haandi is an Indian restaurant located in Falls Church, Virginia.  I first ate there about 15 years ago and they made the most delicious, creamy murgh tikka masala I’d ever had.  I recently got the chance to go back and order my favorite dish again and I discovered to my delight that it is as good as ever, but now healthier.  The cream has gone away, but it’s been replaced by a  cinnamon, tomato sauce.  So fabulous with naan and an order of somosas.  This one is off the beaten path, but if you’re in Northern Virginia or the D.C. area it’s really worth looking up.
