Ricksha Streetside Trandoor Pays Homage to a Mother’s Heirloom Indian Recipes

August 20, 2019

Ricksha Streetside Tandoor doesn’t advertise itself as an “authentic” Indian restaurant. Instead, the Kapitolyo restaurant exudes a young, funky vibe. And owner Cyril Addison describes Ricksha’s menu as “everything [he] grew up eating.” It’s made up of his mom’s recipes, plus a few street-side food he and his wife Pierre love eating while in India.

Don’t be dum(b), just get the biryani.

Try the Dum Biryani—biryani rice in small claypots cooked in their custom-built tandoori oven, then topped with naan. The rice gets a deeper, smokey flavor. And it’s served to you with the naan inflated like a balloon. Cyril also proudly shares that they’re one of the few places that offer dosas, thin-layered rice pancakes made from fermented batter.

Jica hopes that by writing about food she'll actually learn how to cook. But for now, she'll happily just eat everything—especially cookies.
