burroti.pngA new restaurant is opening in San Francisco in four weeks that might serve San Francisco's first Chipotle-style, fast-casual Indian food menu. The flagship Tava Indian Kitchen has been up and running in Palo Alto's Town & Country Village for several months now, serving rice bowls, salad bowls, and "burroti" (Indian burritos, natch) with choose-your-own options for sauce (tikka, daal), protein (chicken, lamb, paneer), and chutney (milk, medium, hot). This is perfect for the persnickety Indian food lover on the run.

Another Tava will be going in at 163 2nd Street, where that new Palio Caffe sadly couldn't make it work. Fellow Indian burrito servers in town are likely not amused by this.

And the general public can only sit and wait for the charms of Tava's burroti to be unleashed on SoMa. Will this be as saucy as Curry Up Now's chicken tikka masala burrito wonder? Or as buttery as Kasa's roti roll? Only time will tell.
