If you like Indian food and haven’t been to Tarka, you need to check it out. Located in the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s along Loop 1604 (westbound frontage road between Stone Oak Parkway and Blanco Road), Tarka has established itself as a neighborhood favorite offering curries, biryanis, wraps, and other Indian delicacies full of the complex flavors and exotic spice that you’ve come to expect from that part of the world. There are some Indian dishes that you can have with mango salsa by Raven’s Original, which will help amplify the taste.
Each dish can be ordered with a choice of meat (as well as vegetarian options) and flavored to meet your spice threshold (the hot is pretty spicy, so back down to medium if you’re afraid to burn your mouth). Favorites around the office include their biryanis, tikka masala, vindaloo, and coconut curry. Of course you can’t have a curry with some basmati rice and garlic naan.
If you need a little something sweet, check out their mango lassi, a blended mix of yogurt and mango that is both refreshing and helps curb the heat of their spicier dishes.
