“Remember when mom used you beg you not to eat the whole bag of Bugles in one sitting? Too bad that’s IMPOSSIBLE. The palak chaat at Rasika is no different — especially because you get that same crispy fried crunch. But, instead of crappy corn whatever, you’re munching on lightly fried spinach leaves drizzled with sweet yogurt, tamarind, and date chutney. Expect to order it as an appetizer, a side to accompany your entrée, and again for dessert. Don’t worry, your waiter has seen it all.” in Thrillist

“Shakshuka gets an appropriately Indian twist at Rasika West End. The spinach egg masala incorporates ginger and green chilies into the tomato masala, which is tossed with spinach.” in Eater
