We all need to evolve and Spicy Bites in Bernal Heights is doing just that.
Now called Spicy Bites, former Dropbox Tuck Shop chef Tilak Gurung has taken over the helm. And the menu has evolved with paneer bhuna (cheese cubes with cashews, bell peppers, herbs and spices), channa saag (spinach with garbanzo beans in curry sauce), and lamb korma (boneless lamb in a creamy sauce topped with cashews).
And the folks who frequent the joint have immediately noticed changes (for the better), “change in ownership and therefore chef. Chef Tilak is on premises, and the food has gone up a few notches in taste for sure!” Reviewer Todd M. stated on the Spicy Bites Yelp page, “Lamb Bhuna and Chicken Tika Masala—yum Yum YUM! We’ve been here many times before and this was our go to place in our neighborhood. We will be back more often! Indian food has stepped up a few notches of late, and this place does not disappoint. So now we have a local place to go besides all the others. Chef Tilak came out to see us, and more changes are in store! A neighborhood eatery is going to be an even shinier gem! Come try it out! (And no, I don’t have a vested interest other than seeing a local business do well). So please make this a success!!”
