Urbann Turbann 1870 Euclid Ave./Hearst Ave. No reservations. Since there are only a few tables available, think take-out. The concept is Indian curries used as a filling and wrapped burrito-style in a naan instead of a tortilla. Fresh veggies such as lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers (I ask for everything), and also masala potatoes (I ask for extra) and a choice of white or brown rice, not to mention a variety of chutney sauces (I like the spicy cilantro and the coconut), are included. Fillings are mild but tasty and include succulent pork vindaloo, a saucy but dry butter chicken, and mushroom curry (you can choose two different fillings). This makes for a gigantic, very messy Indian burrito. I prefer to opt for the bowl version and pay an additional $1 for a naan on the side. The last one I bought was enough for two dinners and a lunch! If you have a bigger appetite, add in a samosa.
