Weave A Thousand Flavors Supper Club, 2022!
OCT | 2022
I am especially excited to tell you all about our upcoming October supper club lunch because we're off for a 'rasa' (taste) of Malaysia, dearies.
As food lovers we can't be snobs and we go where the great meal takes us. This time our taste buds aren't taking us to a hallowed and historic venue in D.C. but instead to a little strip mall in the burbs, in Centreville, VA.
Which bring me to my confession. I'm obsessed with Malaysian food and we tend to eat it several times a month if not weekly. My hubby and I met eons ago while we were working & living in Singapore so Malaysian food was pretty much a staple. And we've been hooked ever since.
Singaporean and Malaysian cuisines both have influences from the 3 major ethnic groups residing in these countries: the Malay, the Chinese and the Indians (Tamilians to be precise hailing from both India and Sri Lanka.) And it is the fusion of these 3 cultures that makes Malaysian food so darn good!
Delicious ingredients like coconut milk, chilies, pandan leaves, dried shrimp and other fish, nuts, lemon grass, fish cakes, dried Chinese sausages, noodles, pork, chicken, dried spices and fresh aromatics all come together to create robust bold flavors in these Malaysian dishes.
I hope you'll join our table!

Here's what past guests had to say"
"Wow! Devaki, of Weave a Thousand Journeys, hosted the most amazing Supper Club at Nostos in Tysons. We started with a lovely cocktail hour to reacquaint ourselves with friends not seen since COVID and to meet new ones. The food, service and wine were all delightful. Devaki planned everything so well and made this experience welcoming, fun and memorable. I can’t wait for the next Supper Club Devaki hosts. I know it will be great fun! - Barbara M
"It's always a great experience when you celebrate a meal with the Weave A Thousand Flavors Supper Club. The Lapis restaurant had great tasting authentic Afghani food served by a friendly and professional staff in a controlled yet bustling environment. The memories that I reflect on, as I think of our first outing of 2019, are the ones that celebrate the gastronaut members that make up the supper club. I enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, the offering of friendship and the sharing of a meal as we celebrate the experience of breaking bread together. It just feels like home!!" - Chris B.
"What a great way to enjoy some fantastic food at a new place and meet with old friends and new! Devaki always picks such wonderful places for a true DC dining experience. Can’t wait for the next outing!" - April P
