NaanStop

10/11/11

NaanStop stopped by work a couple of weeks ago, although it was hard to believe that they stopped at all, given their name (get it?). Lame jokes aside, I wasn’t really looking forward to trying another potentially underwhelming food truck at work after my previous experiences. But I was peer-pressured into trying it by multiple coworkers. And I had heard decent things about it, so why not?

I ordered a samosa and chicken tandoori “naanwich”. The samosa was too oily, but tasted like an authentic samosa. The naanwich was a mess to eat, but tasted pretty good actually. A bit too heavy-handed with the spices, and the whole thing was somewhat soggy, but the flavors were decent. I also tried some of my coworker’s masala fries – tasted like an Indian version of chili cheese fries. Overall, this was a pretty good food truck, the second best one I’ve written about (behind Kogi).
