I received an intriguing Media/VIP invitation to the opening of the Urban Turban Bombay Kitchen & Tapas Bar. Since I enjoy the flavors of India, the Urban Turban was a MUST to visit.
Celebrating their first United States location, they filled platters with classic traditional and international dishes. When I dine in an Indian restaurant, I usually eat Indian cuisine yet the Urban Turban is different.
Their variety and selections were amazing. Of course the menu offered Curries, Biryani, Tandori and other traditional Indian specialties yet this was the time to taste the international surprises.
If you choose one of their curries, all curries are BOTTOMLESS with UNLIMITED refills served with portion of rice, noon bread and small green salads. But the curry order must be for one person and not shared.
With old fashioned Indian household Himalayan Chicken, classic Bombay Lamb Masala, coconut flavored Western India Coastal Curry and more, they serve a total of seven chicken, lamb and vegetarian curries.
They even have a different slant on Biryani. Their Parda Chicken Biryani has layered curried rice cooked in closed flaky pastry covered pot, served with curry sauce and Raita. The Urban Turban added the flaky pastry topping.
Diners will find nine interesting chicken appetizers, Bombay Bites, like Chicken Tikka, chicken cubes marinated in yogurt, mustard oil, red chili and select herbs.
Most people are familiar with Sliders but what about grilled Lamb Sliders Indian-style?
There are two grilled Shrimp dishes as well as Calamari, Shucked Oysters and Fish Bites
Ground Lamb Kebabs, ground Lamb Cutlets and a
With such a great selection, you may wish to order a Sharing Plate to try their Tandoori Chicken, Seafood Platter, Vegetable Platter or Bombay Tapas Platter.
We are familiar with the street food of Mexico, the food prepared and sold on the streets. The Urban Turban added the street food of Bombay to their menu.
