Touting "Indian Street Food", we couldn't help but sample a Chicken Tikka Masala burrito from Curry Up Now's food truck. As a big fan of proper fusion, and not the sad attempts by certain big chain restaurants, this really hit the spot. Chicken Tikka Masala is my go-to dish and it was so very tasty in burrito form (convenient too since we walking around at an event). We kept our eye out for the truck to come back in our area, but it never did. So we made the trek to their sit-down restaurant in San Mateo.
Deconstructed Samosa - Chicken, Garbanzo Beans, Pico, Chutneys, & Rice topped w/ Mini Samosas
The mini samosas were deliciously fragrant and added the perfect textural crunch. Very flavorful and generously portioned dish.
Fried Ravioli w/ Tikka Masala Dip
Was again amazed by how fragrant their components are. The cheese tasted rich, indulgent, and incredibly creamy. And really, you just can't go wrong with Tikka Masala dip. I will note here that their TM dip is more on the tomato-y side rather than the creamy version I've had in other Indian restaurants.
8 Item Thali Platter - Chicken Tikka Masala, Pork Belly, Brown Rice, Parantha, Garbanzo Beans, Papadum, and salad
I thought my dish was big until I saw my husband's. It was massive, but a perfect fit for his appetite. The sauce with the Pork Belly was particularly good.
We will definitely be making this trek more often! If you have any other Fusion recommendations, please do tell!
