Wasn’t I just talking about the omnipresence of street food in the city? Well here comes one more. Evidently Tabla, the upscale Indian restaurant right by Madison Square Park, has set up their own street cart. Chef Floyd Cardoz wants to cash in on this trend (see: Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack) and has placed the cart right outside the restaurant, across the street from the park. New York Magazine adds:
"On the brief takeaway-only menu: a chicken tikka roti roll with mint chutney, a Bombay bhel puri, and a chocolate kulfi pop dipped in more chocolate like an Eskimo Pie."
The prices are decent too, ranging from $4-8. Who needs a burger when you can have a chicken tikka roti roll?! If you’re not sure what that consists of – it’s chunks of spiced chicken (cumin, coriander, garlic, cayenne) usually covered in onions and lemon on a roti, which is Indian grilled flatbread.
The cart will be opening the week of July 21st, Monday-Friday 11:30 AM – 3:30 PM. Located at 11 Madison Avenue at 25th street.
