I got to try this place out today and I was beyond happy that I had the chance to. A few friends of mine had posted on my page to go try this out for my blog so I made my way to 7th Avenue South and Barrow Streets. I found it fairly quickly. I did not anticipate it really being a hole in the wall but it actually was. I got to record some footage. It had a couple of tables outside and seating inside. I also very much enjoyed the decor as well. The mural on the wall was absolutely stunning. It is definitely up there as my second best mural/art piece at a restaurant. They also had a nice playlist going that consisted of traditional indian music as well as a few pop hits.
The menu was simple. You picked your type of taco shell which was either naan or roti. And then you picked your protein. I went with a Lamb Kabob Naan Taco and a Chicken Tikka Masala Roti Taco. Each of them were topped with Romain Lettuce, Purple Cabbage, Onions, and a homemade chutney.
A brief sidenote, for those of you who aren’t sure what Chicken Tikka Masala is, it is a popular Indian dish. It consists of chunks of chicken that have been marinated in various spices and yogurt which is then baked in a tandoor oven and served with a masala sauce. Typically the masala sauce consists of a tomato, cream, and coriander sauce.
I will start with the lamb kabob taco…..it was my favorite of the two. It had a sweet and savoriness to it. The crunch of the veggies and the fresh taste that the cilantro and chutney added to it really made this a delicious taco. My only issue with it was how it wasnt proportionate. It was a giant piece of naan but about a quarter of it was just empty. I was a little disappointed with that because it should have meat from end to end. Besides that, I wouldn’t change a thing.
The Chicken Tikka Masala Roti Taco was actually good. I did find it a little sweeter than it needed to be. I found it a little spicy but I couldn’t stop eating it. It was delicious and filled from end to end. I would say the only thing I did not like was the amount of gravy but I am sure if I went there again, I could request less sauce on my taco and boom issue solved.
Overall I really liked this place. I love tacos and an Indian Fusion concept is just awesome. I thought they were very filling and satisfying for the price. Just expect a short wait time for the food because this place does get busy. But besides that, give them a try, you won’t regret it. You can visit their Facebook page here.
This place gets 4 out of 5 bites from me and that is because of how much meat the lamb naan taco had.
