The food truck explosion continues. Last Friday, Chan Pethaperumal and Poorni Muthaian opened Banana Leaf, a mobile kitchen that serves Indian food. Husband Chan and wife Poorni hail from the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. But Chan said today that Banana Leaf menu covers all regions of India. It includes the likes of dosas, kati rolls, biryani, coconut rice and vegetable pilau with tandori chicken. The menu will rotate, he said, with daily specials listed on Facebook and Twitter.
Chan said he expects to be truly mobile with the truck, but at least in the near future, it will be at 201 A Street, two blocks behind the Exxon on the corner of Van Buren and Markham. Hours of operation are 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 501-227-0860.
