Curry Up Now

Curry Up Now© is a popular local food truck featuring Indian cuisine served in unique ways.  Beyond a food truck now, it has branched out as a restaurant in 4 different locations throughout the bay area.

I have only eaten at the food truck, where I tend to order items that are easier to eat on the go.  I have eaten here a couple of times now and both times have gotten their burritos.  I’m kind of a wimp with spicy foods and BOY are these spicy!!!  I’m used to eating Indian food with a lot of rice or naan.  So, having a burrito of some rice but a generous portion of filling wrapped in a tortilla was like having a heat explosion in my mouth.

This is the chicken tikka masala burrito:

This is the hella vegan burrito, which is filled with samosas, pico de gallo, and chutney:

So, if you love spice and want to try something different with Indian food, go check them out!
