Urban Turban is expanding its already extensive vegan offerings with a full vegan buffet on Tuesday nights from 6-9 p.m. starting April 11. The buffet is $12 per person and 10 percent of every plate will benefit One Family Animal Sanctuary, a local nonprofit that specializes in providing lifetime care and sheltering for farm animals who have been abused, neglected, or have special needs.
The buffet includes dishes like spiced tomato soup, tamarind chutney, crackling spinach salad with roasted sesame and almonds, Mumbai veggie burgers, bhel (rice puffs tossed in fresh basil, cilantro and tomato), garlic corn, vada (Indian deep fried crispy donuts), turmeric potato bhaji, peppery vegetable curry, pan-fried okra medley, sambhar (classic southern Indian stew), vegetable jalfrezi (tangy mix of vegetable masala), Indian fried rice and desserts including vanilla bean suji halwa.
“When people think of vegan food, they may think of ‘rabbit food,’ but vegetarian and vegan lifestyles are very prominent in Indian culture, so I want to show there’s so much more variety in the vegan diet,” said Chef Tarun Kapoor.
Visit Urban Turban’s 3900 Paradise Rd. location for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for dinner 6 – 10 p.m.
