Two Indian Pop-Up Events


Juhu Beach Club’s Sloppy Lil’ P.

A couple tasty-sounding Indian pop-up events for you to consider: chef Preeti Mistry (yes, Preeti from Top Chef) is starting ~JUHU BEACH CLUB~, a lunch spot in SoMa inside the Garage Café across the street from Slim’s and Bar Agricole. Starting Tuesday March 15th, she will be serving a lunch of Indian street food, snacks, and homestyle cooking, grinding all of her own spice blends, and featuring housemade pickles, chutneys, and from-scratch samosas. Inspired by a recent trip to Mumbai, she’ll be offering the Sloppy Lil’ P, a twist on the Mumbai street food classic, the pav bhaji; along with the Holy Slow-Braised Cow, a smoky black cardamom, short-rib sandwich with cucumber raita; and Chowpatty Chicken, a green chile chicken curry sandwich with tangy cabbage slaw, all under $10. Mon-Fri 11am-2:30pm. You can follow updates on Twitter. 320 11th St. at Folsom

And this Wednesday March 9th, Kasa returns to ~THE CORNER~, doing an All-Star Punjabi Night, featuring some of their all-time favorite dishes. There will be a vegetarian menu ($20) and a non-vegetarian menu ($25) available. You can read up on both of them here. 6pm-10pm. Reservations recommended; email here or leave a message at 415-690-8512. 2199 Mission St. at 18th St.
