Mere steps from UC Berkeley's North Gate, husband-and-wife team Aman and Chandler Mahal offer all-organic, cruelty-free, made-to-order wraps as big as bricks. Your choice of pillowy, house-baked naan or dairy-free, whole-grain roti is rolled tightly around masala potatoes and salad greens plus your choice of a number of slightly Berkeleyized Indian classics including boneless Sonoma chicken marinated overnight in organic yogurt, then tandoor-cooked over an open flame. Orinda-bred Aman began tweaking his family's favorite Punjabi recipes while still a teenager; his Urbann Turbann pork vindaloo is inspired by his personal favorite eighteen-hour procedure for preparing barbecued pulled pork. Meatless fillings include Karahi paneer, mushroom mattar, and herbed seasonal vegetables. The fillings can also be had over brown rice in bowls, while Berkeley's best new bargain might be Urbann Turbann's $1 potato samosas.
