The eating place owner became unavailable for remark, but I discovered some tidbits about the franchise beginning tale via some online sleuthing.
According to Franchise America, Harpreet Dahyia founded Chicago’s Pizza With A Twist, Inc. In 2014. The franchise commenced in California and has since branched out to Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Washington, and Nevada. Locations are in the works for Indiana. According to Franchise Direct, diners should anticipate many staple Indian spices and aromatics inclusive of: “garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin seeds, cilantro, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, [and] fenugreek.”
The eating place has a huge reach with offerings to satisfy those seeking out a classic pie, hot wings, and beer, in addition to those seeking out fragrant spices, samosas, and fresh produce.
We ordered the Shahi Paneer Naan Pizza for $8.Ninety-nine, a small (10”) Tandoori Chicken Pizza for $11.Ninety-nine, an order of the oven-baked samosas for $6.Ninety-nine, six Tikka Masala wings for $5.99 and two fountain beverages for $1.69 every. The restaurant supervisor and cashier, reputedly the most effective personnel on a team of workers on time, tag-teamed the cooking of our order. It became splendid to peer our meals arrive so expeditiously.
Pon coming into the restaurant on a Saturday at noon, a pleasant employee welcomed my wife and me as the first customers of the day. Three flat display televisions show the static menu above the ordering counter on the front. In addition, the employee supplied us with take-out menus for less difficult studying.
The restaurant’s interior became immaculate, and it featured pizzeria staples together with a pool table, jukebox, sports activities on some large screens, brief tattoos, and arcade video games. The whole joint is properly branded, and large prints of Chicago cityscapes line the partitions.
New to Reno, Chicago’s Pizza With-A-Twist offers your favorite pizzeria dishes married with popular Indian fare. Every dish on the menu, whether pizza, wings, or pasta, may be ordered with usual pizzeria flavors or with Indian American-fused flavors. Although the eating place name might advise exemplary deep-dish pizza, they do no longer offer that form of pie. Instead, they serve medium-deep pan pizza and naan pizza. Vegan cheese, cauliflower crust, and egg-loose options are also to be had.
The first dishes to arrive were the samosas. Most of the samosas around town seem to be fried, so I was curious to see how I would enjoy a baked variety. I should note, too, that many cultures cook something akin to samosas. The gist is a baked or fried pastry typically filled with savory ingredients, sometimes including meat and sometimes not. The variety at Chicago’s Pizza With-A-Twist (CPWAT) included mashed spuds, various spices, and peas.
The restaurant serves the samosas with green chutney and a mango habanero sauce. The pastries were crisp and tender in all the right places. The filling was well-seasoned and packed well. I thought the appetizers were delectable. The chutney was bright, herbaceous, and had a surprising amount of heat. The mango habanero sauce had a distinct mango fragrance and an excellent sweet heat. One order includes four good-sized samosas. This dish is sure to work its way into my regular rotation.
