I don’t know if this is new, but first time I’ve seen this –a regular Halal street truck converted to Indian. You can still see the old breakfast menu (croissant, coffee) behind the Indian art they hung up. I got the Chicken Tikka Masala ($5) and it tasted like regular street chicken with mild masala sauce.
The next day, I brought Sam. I got a vegetarian Aloo Masala Kati Roll ($3.50) and it was delicious. Spiced potatoes, some corn and onion, wrapped in a greasy paratha. I saw them squirt lemon and season it before they closed it up. Awesome!
I pretty much forced Sam to get the Chicken Curry because they didn’t have the Tikka Masala ready, even though he doesn’t eat spicy food. It was too spicy for him and he ate a hair in it. At least they gave him a banana, but he didn’t eat it. I wonder if there was a hair in it.
