Bombay Street Food, the Indian restaurant that started out serving a variety of chaat, Indo-Chinese dishes, and vada pav in Columbia Heights just more than two decades ago, opens its third D.C. area these days (Thursday, March 11) around Adams Morgan. Restaurateur Asad Sheikh, who has also quickly developed Butter Hen Co. into a rapid-casual counterpart, has extra a couple new dishes. Bombay Road Food items 3 (1915 18th Street NW) serves aloo tiki (potato, chickpeas, and chutney) and a “chicken 65” in a spicy pink sauce with curry leaves. The 45-seat restaurant with a small six-seat patio gives a more cost-effective and more compact menu (assume an $18 thali platter for a person) than the initial or a 2nd restaurant on Barracks Row in Capitol Hill. It opens for lunch from noon to 3 p.m. and evening meal from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday by means of Sunday. Supply is readily available from 3rd-celebration apps.
