Urban Masala, noted back in September, soft opened last Friday and will officially debut on December 30. Positioned on Hollywood near Schrader, this modern fast casual Indian cafe serves traditional Indian dishes with a contemporary quick serve twist. So, one can order a bowl, a roll, a salad, or a plate.
Bowls come with rice and an entree (think chicken tikka, masala, curry, saag paneer, dal), rolls involve fresh naan and a similar selection of fillings (baked in those ovens up front), the two salad options are chicken tikka or tofu tikka, and finally a plate involves a little bit of everything - two entrees, rice, salad, plus naan. And while Urban Masala is open daily, Sunday to Wednesday from 11AM to 11PM, Thursday through Saturday doors remain open until 3AM, catering to the late nigh denizens of Hollywoodland. But, does this part of town understand Indian and want it when the munchies kick in? With places like Fukuburger and Stout not too far away...? Remains to be seen.
