Tandoozy – Incredible Street Food at the Farmer’s Market


We wandered in to the Seattle University District’s Farmer’s Market on Saturday, and immediately were struck by the incredible smells coming from Tandoozy, an Indian street food cart. They make their own naan, fresh, on the spot, and top it with a wide array of delicious options. We had to give them a try.

The owner – Craig – was inspired by Indian street food, and brings his delicious interpretation to five farmer’s markets in Seattle. We watched him cut and shape the dough.

Then he slaps it onto the very hot oven wall. (He made the oven himself.) Once the dough’s in the oven, he claps a lid on top and the dough browns and puffs and bubbles.

After a few moments, Craig whisks the dough out of the oven and over to the toppings station.

We opted for the everything-vegetarian option. The hot, smoky naan was chewy in places, crispy in others. The dahl was warm, spicy, and filling, and the toppings were incredible – sweet, spicy, and savory. The cilantro-garlic topping added a bright, fresh taste. We could eat three more of these.
