NYC Food Truck Lunch: Chicken Tikka Bao (Buns) From Chinese Mirch

Chinese Mirch is basically a cross between Indian and Chinese cuisine, if you can imagine that. The Northern part of India is below Nepal and Tibet, which is the area where many of these dishes come from.

NY Food Truck Lunch: Thukpa & Shrimp Momos From Chinese Mirch Truck

The thukpa came in a quart-size container filled with noodles, veggies, soup/stew and momos. I say soup/stew because you could describe thukpa as either. The menu says stew, but I consider this to be more of a thick soup.

NY Food Truck Lunch: Tibetan Momos From Chinese Mirch

The momos are hand-rolled, pan-fried, and come with either a hot dipping sauce, sweet dipping sauce or in a Szechuan broth. We opted for the hot dipping sauce, although in retrospect, we should have asked for the sweet sauce too.
