Urban Tadka is a freshly launched restaurant concept in Vancouver as it operates as a ghost kitchen or satellite kitchen. This means that their food is offered to customers primarily off food delivery app services.
The kitchen specializes in Awadhi cuisine, which is a cuisine native to the Awadh region in Northern India.
Awadhi cuisine is highly influenced by Mughal cooking techniques where meat kebabs are cooked over open charcoal, and curries are cooked over a slow flame with aromatic spices, rose petals, and kewra water.
Urban Tadka differs from other Indian restaurants in that the food has not been dulled for Western palettes so the taste is highly authentic.
The founders of Urban Tadka, Chef Evan Elman (formerly his own private dining) and Chef Tushar Tondvalkar (formerly Mumbai Local, Fish House, Bauhaus, Bluewater Cafe), are industry veterans in Vancouver.
Sustainability is essential to Urban Tadka as all packagings are 100% and compostable.
On the menu at Urban Tadka are charcoal-cooked kebabs (like malai chicken, chicken hariyali and more), slow- cooked curries (like butter chicken, chicken korma and so forth) and desserts (like rice kheer).
Urban Tadka is open from 11-9. You can also swing by their commissary kitchen at 1370 E Georgia St to grab a bite to go or, order ahead of time by calling the Urban Tadka hotline, or search for their offerings on food delivery apps.
