Great addition that I hope to check out soon.  Forget the name of the place, but DC has an Asian/Latin fusion restaurant that was hip and tasty.

Nosh has some of the best spicy meat dishes in town. They are very tasty. The meatballs are succulent. But if you need to lose some pounds they are probably not for you. The holidays offerings are great http://easy10.notlong.com

I was impressed with Carlos and the menu when I stopped in; less so with the wines and the staff's knowledge of wine. I thought the decor was sorta gauche and over the top, but that's just my taste. I'm looking forward to it evolve from a vanity project into a good place to drink and nibble. So far, it's much better than it has to be for a wine bar.

Wow - this does look exciting! Last week in NYC I ate at a place called Chinese Mirch which also I believe has a location in Austin that fuses Asian and Indian flavors. So this is top of my list to try.

@ShitThrowingMonkey It's really not all that fusiony. There's some overlap in Indian & SE Asian, but there's also some pretty straight-up Euro/French stuff that's just separate.

@jimbo1126 I loved the combinations of flavors -- think turmeric with curry, coconut with tamarind or lemongrass. Hope you enjoy it!

@Helena28 @gstefani @Mai Pham quick search on "turmeric flavor" yielded this description: 

"Turmeric has a strong flavor, aroma, and color.Turmeric's flavor is somewhat earthy, like horseradish and mustard, but with a slight hint of bitterness. Turmeric powder's flavor could also be described as peppery, or even warm in the mouth.Because Turmeric, which is sometimes misspelled as Tumeric, has such a strong flavor it should be added to dishes sparingly towards the end of the cooking process."

@gstefani @Mai Pham Tumeric has about a much flavor as sumac, which is to say not much. But it is very good for you as an anti-inflammatory.

@Mai Pham my tumeric must be old then or something. there's abundant flavor in cumin, coriander, cardomom, peppercorns, and lemongrass, ginger, garlic, citrus leaves etc. but tumeric is not something that springs to mind as having a distinctive flavor. guess I'll experiment more with it as a flavor....now i use it for health and color mainly

@gstefani turmeric can be a component of curry, yes. When you buy it as a powder and use it on its own, it lends a distinctive flavor/aroma, the same way that ground coriander adds flavor/aroma.  I use it in a Vietnamese soup, and without it, the soup doesn't taste the same.

@Mai Pham @gstefani @jimbo1126 really? even when combined with lemongrass, coconut and curry? color me doubtful. "this curry has elegant notes of cardommon and tumeric"....nah.
