Tava Indian Kitchen

Following in the footsteps of Spice Kit and, yes, Chipotle, Palo Alto's Tava has opened a second branch in SoMa. The premise: a quick-service restaurant serving your choice of meats and or curried vegetables in rice plates, salads or "burroti." The lamb burroti with spicy mint chutney, rolled up in a freshly pressed flatbread, makes a lunch as flavorful as it is substantial. See our previous coverage.
