Curry Leaf San Fran- A Break From The Seafood “Norm”

by jem614

As a vegetarian staying in Fisherman’s Wharf, it’s hard to find something close-by that I could actually eat.  I mostly ate salads and pastas during my stay.  That’s sad and depressing (for me anyways).

The second to last day in California, I had enough and figured the easiest way to get some vegetarian cuisine was to find a local Indian restaurant.  I was in luck, just a few short blocks from the Sheraton on the Wharf, was “Curry Leaf”, an adorable little Indian/Pakistani restaurant.  I ordered up a storm- papadum, veggie samosa, naan, palaak paneer, and masala chai (which I actually forgot I ordered) as well as something chickeny for my son.

The papadum was perfect, the right spiciness and flavor.  The palaak paneer was delicious, not too creamy, not too watery, a great flavor and it wasn’t crazy expensive for the area.  Curry Leaf also does things a bit different than normal restaurants- you order at the front and then pick up your own drinks (and pour your own Chai that I forgot I ordered).  You also grab your own plates and cutlery, get your own water and don’t forget to get the salsas from the fridge!

So happy I was able to eat something besides pasta, I wished I would have branched out a little more.  I think next time I’m in San Fran, I’ll probably stay somewhere besides Fisherman’s Wharf….

On a side note, if you’re brave, I also saw this strange Irish pub/Indian restaurant on the way.  If you try it, let us know your review and we’ll post it here!
