If you like Curry Leaf, you will like Turmeric Flavors of India. Why? Because they’re owned by the same people and have most of the same dishes, complete with full vegan menus. Except, this spot is Downtown and near the action. And has an upstairs patio to watch the fire-breathing praying mantis that lives across the street at the Container Park.
Head here and devour our favorite – the Gobu Manchurian, a battered and deep fried cauliflower tossed in a tangy spicy sauce (that’s also gluten-free!). Sure, it’s an app, but holy wow is it delicious.
Then, order up our entree picks, the Saag Curry, a baby spinach puree with cumin, garlic, onion and tomato sauce, and the Chana Masala, a spicy chickpea dish.
Be warned: their spice rating system isn’t always consistent, so go lower and then add versus aiming high. We had the “seven” twice and the second time we had it, it was burn-your-lips-and-mouth-and-everything spicy (we couldn’t finish it).
They don’t have dessert options … yet. But, you’ll be so full from eating all the amazing vegan Indian food, you won’t want it anyway.
