A few months ago we mentioned Tiffin mastermind Munish Narula was interested in getting a food truck rolling. Today we learned that said truck is indeed happening, and will likely hit the streets before the end of the summer. Narula is currently in negations to take over an existing food truck, and following some minor upgrades to it and a fresh paint job, he expects to have it up and running at a location in University City before fall classes begin. “The deal is almost done,” Narula told Grub Street. “We’re looking at anywhere from six to eight weeks.”
Tiffin chefs are already scheming possible menus, and Narula insists that none of the truck’s food will be frozen or prepackaged. Kati rolls, Biryanis and ample veggie options are being tossed around as possibilities. The truck will also be tied into Tiffin’s website, so customers can place orders in advance and pick them up when they are ready.
“We want to provide people with a good Indian experience,” Narula said. “But we also want to do it in quick fashion so people aren’t waiting too long.”
Meanwhile, Tashan, Narula’s forthcoming upscale small plates restaurant at 777 South Broad St. is coming along. Right now crews are putting drywall up inside. Narula says he’s now shooting for a mid-July opening.
