The Hot Indian Story

Our mission at Hot Indian Foods is to add spice to peoples’ lives. We want every single person who comes in contact with Hot Indian Foods to take away something fun, memorable, and meaningful – perhaps you can’t stop thinking about DELICIOUS Spinach Paneer Indurrito that you just devoured, or maybe you saved an entire dollar by busting out an awesome Bollywood dance move that you didn’t even know you knew!  Whatever you take away from the experience is up to you…..making you want to come back for more is our responsibility.

We started this brand in 2013 with the hopes of making Indian cuisine less intimidating and more approachable to a broader audience, which is why our menu will always be centered around Indian flavors in more familiar formats. Hence, the Indurrito (Indian Burrito) and Indi Frites (Indian-seasoned Fries).

Thank you so much for giving us a chance and for being down with the brown!

What makes you a Hot Indian?

My first roommate in culinary school introduced me to a new spice that I had never tried before: Curry. my surprise, I loved it. Now, it has a permanent home in my spice drawer. That is what makes me a Hot Indian.

When I was younger, I used to play multiple musical instruments. I started off playing the flute, moved to the piccolo, saxophone, and was in transition to the oboe by the time I graduated from high school.
