Annakoot's proprietor, Rao Rohit Singh, also owns Breads of India and Gourmet Curries, a restaurant with three East Bay locations. Their truck, which was situated outside of the Japanese Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park offers up healthy, organic Indian meals, with an emphasis on sourcing from local vendors. The menu consists of both Indian street foods and slow-cooked traditional dishes.
The low point of the meal was definitely the Samosas, though there was nothing in their outward appearance to indicate they wouldn't be good. They had a nice crispy brown shell, and they were served with a combination of two chutneys. Their taste, however, left a lot to be desired. The shell was much too doughy, and the filling was mushy without have any distinct flavors. It was too heavy on the pepper, which was the dominant spice, and the texture wasn't typical of samosas. They didn't taste freshly made to me. Either they had been sitting for awhile and reheated, or they were not freshly made to begin with. I actually didn't even finish them, and I love samosas!
Annakoot is relatively new, so I am hoping that they will work out the kinks of being a mobile food vendor and their dishes will improve.
Rating: 2/5 (ratings guide)
Annkoot, $10.00 for meal, $4.00 for two samosas
