Roshambo is an Indian food cart located
|They used to be in the backleft corner, but
I talked with David, the owner and chef at Roshambo. The menu is all-vegetarian, with some vegan items. While I love getting a ton of protein from meats/poultry/fish, I'll nosh away on vegetarian or vegan items as well.
When I came on a Friday around noon, David had just opened. I peered at the cart window. Lunch special. Any two entrees plus rice for $7. When I realized each entree was otherwise in the $9 hemisphere, it was a no-brainer. Book that lunch special!

I chose chana masala for my second entree: chickpeas simmered in a spicy tomato sauce. Again, a filling, tasty meal packed with wonderful flavor. The tomato sauce is also somewhat chunky, which I like. The chickpeas were cooked perfectly.
Having a bed of perfectly cooked white basmati rice underneath both entrees meant a double win...eating the rice with each main item. No, I won't sing "happy" notes because I will scare people away.
Eating this meal just felt so therapeutic -- albeit for a short time. The food was gone in less than five minutes. Speed eaters unite!
Roshambo is billed as "inspired vegetarian Indian" food. I had one heck of an enlightening experience here. Using my awesome panda logic, I say it's fairly accurate advertising! Even if you're not vegetarian or vegan, head over to Roshambo and try David's food! 8.5/10
