101 South: San Mateo, Curry Up Now

Curry Up Now  129 S. B St., (650) 477-1001.  L-D daily; $.  Reservations taken.  This is a food truck gone brick and mortar.  Order at the counter, then select a seat in the contemporary interior furnished with sleek black tabletops that match the unusual menu choices displayed chalk board-style on the wall.  The menu blends ethnic Indian street food with Mexican dishes--think chicken tikka masala burrito, kathi roll (a wrap consisting of a whole-wheat parantha flat bread stuffed with, perhaps, egg and paneer), aloo paratha quesadilla, sexy fries (cross-cut sweet potato fries topped with tikka masala), deconstructed samosa (a mushed-up samosa with chickpeas and teeny-tiny mini samosas mixed in).  Drinks include a ginger-mint lemonade and rose, mango, and mango-mint lassis.  Special vegan and gluten-free menus are available.
