Curry in a Hurry opens

According to Joy Juedes’ story in the Redlands Daily Facts, Redlands’ newest restaurant is Curry in a Hurry, which opened a couple of weeks back.

Joy tells me the Indian restaurant, which grew out of a Redlands Market Night booth, has been doing a brisk business.

It’s not difficult to understand why. The owner, veteran restaurateur Kishore Bhat, is focused on offering fresh, economical meals.

Two examples: Single entre bowls are $3.99. Two item combos only $4.99.

Economical, indeed.

Plus: Spices and some ingredients come directly from India.

Minus: Menu is somewhat limited — seven or eight items.

Curry in a Hurry is at 1150 Brookside Ave. (at San Mateo Street), Suite I, in Redlands.

Somebody finally took us up on the offer

So, the fine folks at the Redlands Daily Facts finally heeded the word of Dine 909 and went to the Mill Creek Cattle Co.

Well, I’m not exactly sure that they heeded the word of Dine 909, but they did head over to Mill Creek, and according to Managing Editor Jennifer Dobbs’ review, had a pretty good meal.

Hats off to Mill Creek for updating their Web site to include the menu for the new drive through restaurant.

One discrepancy, though, the review mentions sweet potato fries, and the online menu does not. Funny, Bren and I were both craving sweet potato fries just the other day…I think it’s worth heading over to see if they have them or not.

Elsewhere, resident compulsive David Allen has conquered all 144 items at the Mix Bowl Cafe in Pomona. Read all about the sordid tale here.

And in reviews, Elaine Lehman also heads to Redlands to check out someplace I’ve seen many a time, but never visited…McDuff’s. Now I know why. They only serve breakfast and lunch. Guess I’m not usually in Redlands early in the day. I may have to make an effort. Read her review of the long-established eatery here.

Also, David Cohen enjoyed some Indian food at Taal, which took over the spot formerly occupied by Bamboo Garden, in San Bernardino. Read about it here.
