Northern Peninsula shopping has just become a lot tastier. The popular San Francisco Indian and Pakistani restaurant Naan ‘N’ Curry has expanded to Daly City’s Serramonte Center. This Peninsula location is in a food court, so there is no lunchtime buffet, but otherwise the menu is the same — even the free chai tea. Samosas, stuffed or topped naans, and biryani dishes are some of the highlights, along with the classic chicken tikka masala. You can also choose from numerous vegetarian options, some tandoori meats, and some lesser-known curries that might include clay oven-baked fish or the “nihari” with slow-cooked beef shank. There is mango lassi on hand to drink to help tame the spices before heading to the next shop.
