Back To Trucks
Owner Sumant Pardal
India Jones Chow Trucks are gourmet food trucks serving authentic Indian street food throughout Greater Los Angeles and Beach cities. The well respected Chef Sumant Pardal, the owner, hails from a family of restaurateurs in India and has been cooking for 38 years. Over the years he has owned & operated several restaurants in Los Angeles, including the famous East India Grills, Tufaan & Tiger Lily and has long list of accolades. Now, at India Jones, he specializes in Indian street food, particularly frankies: a roti is wrapped around fillings like lamb, paneer and mushrooms to form what the Zagat Guide’s blog calls “the Indian equivalent of a burrito.” His famous butter chicken, a mild tomato & cream curry served with rice, is also a staple of the India Jones menu.
The 2nd annual Vendy Awards brought together seven street vendors from around the city for a day of food and competition at Pan Pacific Park. Chef Sumant Pardal of India Jones Chow Truck, a mobile operation dishing out Indian plates, won the event’s ultimate recognition of sidewalk talent, the Vendy Cup.
