Hungry? A new neighborhood Indian spot has you covered. Called Bombay Street Food #2, the fresh arrival is located at 524 Eighth St. SE in Capitol Hill.
Bombay Street Food #2 brings the street food of Bombay, now known as Mumbai, to the restaurant. "Monsoon" options — referring to the four-month rainy season in Bombay — include cutting chai, a half cup of tea, to be paired with vegetable fritters, deep-fried spiced cheese cubes and spicy chicken. Main plates, such as chili chicken, spicy lamb and nine varieties of curry dishes, are also served.
The fresh addition is off to a good start thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 11 reviews on Yelp.
Sam B., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on June 23, wrote, "The service is above and beyond, and the food is amazing."
Yelper Jennifer C. added, “It's the appetizers and snacks and 'sandwiches' that are the best things about this place.”
