Indo-Thai food truck to start weekend hours on 41st Street

By Rosemary McCoy

On the heels of its successful debut at the 605 Made Night Market, the Spicy Wheels food truck will be back on the street.

Eswari Muthu, who also owns Greens & Spices, plans to operate the Indo-Thai food truck on Friday and Saturday nights, starting this week.

Spicy Wheels will be open from 6 to 8 p.m., weather permitting, in the parking lot of Beds & Beds at 1017 W. 41st St., Muthu said. That’s across the street from her ethnic grocery store, which she opened earlier this year.

She and her husband, Muthu Kasi, and their helpers fed a steady stream of customers at the Night Market on Aug. 25. Even before an approaching storm cut the event short, they had sold out of everything on the menu.

For the weekends, Muthu is planning a simple menu, with “one snack and one rice item, and different on both days.”

Friday’s menu is yellow Thai chicken curry and masala vada — a spiced and crunchy fritter — with chutney. On Saturday, she will serve chettinad chicken curry and samosa chaat, a popular Indian street food that features fried dough, chickpeas and other veggies, and spices.
