I’ve lived in Lowell just over half a year now, and some of the newness has worn off. I’ve been to many of the places now that peaked my initial curiosity, and I’m starting to know how to find what I’m looking for without having to explore. It’s so easy to get complacent, to feel like Lowell isn’t going to surprise me in quite the same way.
Fortunately, whenever things start to get too comfortable, there’s a new discovery. For months now I’ve been idly wondering what the chalkboard sign that says “vegetarian” outside of Kearney Square’s Pizza and Sub Stop is referring to. I figured it was probably that they had a veggie pizza option that was popular.
Nope! There’s a whole mini menu of unexpected choices. They have unusual pizza options like “Tikka Masala” and “Chutney and Cheese” and other choices that might be best described as Indian/Italian fusion, like garlic bread stuffed with samosas.
We took home masala veggie bread and masala fries, with pretty much no idea what we might end up with.
It was super amazingly delicious. Savory, spicy, and a little sweet. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a little bit of Indian flavor in the downtown area. Here’s a link to their site if you’d like to see the quirky menu.
