When I first heard that there was a brand new Indian food truck, I was on the case! I had to try it! I love Indian food very much! According to their Twitter, they had a test run Saturday at lunch…too bad I added them Saturday night! FAIL on my part!
After asking if they would be out on Sunday, I was told that they were having blinker issues, and would be out on Monday. I was sad to hear this because today (Monday) was my first day back at work. I’m not teaching the children yet, but I had an 8am meeting and I was setting up my classroom. Needless to say, I had accepted the fact that I would not be able to check this truck out in a long while…
Then around 4, I was cutting some fabric to put up on the wall (bulletin board teacher secret) using Fiskars kiddie scissors when the next thing I knew, I was bleeding. I had actually sliced my finger open using KIDDIE SCISSORS! I thought these were for children! I’m scared to let my high schoolers use them now!
Alone in my classroom without a first aid kit I called @LvtoTravel and asked her to bring me a band-aid ASAP! Somewhere along this conversation, as I was simultaneously scrambling for a baby wipe (another teacher secret), she mentioned to me that the Indian food truck was going to be out tonight and if I wanted to go.
Needless to say, I wrapped my finger up, let the blood dry on my teacher desk, and set out to meet up with @LvtoTravel so we could finally try this Indian food truck! After all, I had not eaten anything all day! I was hungry!
According to their Twitter, they would be outside some market on Sunset at 6pm. We waited and they did not come. Then we waited some more. Around 7pm, we decided to just go to Intelligentsia instead. That never happened though. We ended up going to some other places before we randomly spotted the India Jones Chow Truck as it passed us by! We were full from our mini foodie adventure (which I will blog about soon) but since we had finally found the truck, we decided to try it.
First of all, the truck is really really really really clean! I like this! The menu is basic and reasonably priced. As I previously mentioned, I happen to love Indian food and eat is as often as I can. I guess Indian cuisine isn’t as mainstream as other cuisines, because the chef/owner described certain items as being like a “quesadilla without cheese” and “a burrito”…The burrito turned out to be a Frankie, which @LvtoTravel ordered and she really enjoyed it.
Anyway. I ordered the special which was goat curry! Perhaps my most favorite Indian dish. It reminds me of my favorite Mexican dish, “birria”. Hmm…maybe the chef/owner was on to something!
Apart from cutting my finger, the day had been stressful because my classroom still looks a hot mess, I fell of a student desk as I was putting up fabric, and there are certain things that need to be done before Thursday. I needed some comfort food.
As soon as I took one bite of the goat curry and rice I was cured. This was exactly the comfort food I was seeking. It was absolutely great! And! The portion was really good for $6.50! THIS. I could eat this for days!
The chef/owner was very nice and told us that today was their first full day out and about. I really liked the curry. It easily rivaled the goat curry I have at my usual Indian spot. I definitely look forward to eating at India Jones Chow Truck again in the near future and I wish them the best of luck!
If you are a fan of Indian food, you should definitely check them out!
