Gomes know how to make a damn good Tandoori Chicken.
Born in hot Kolkata, east of India, the Gomes’ then lived in Europe for most of their lives, and draw inspiration from their worldly travels when creating their dishes.
“We have Indian classics and also our own spin on dishes with touches of Lebanese, Mexican and Chinese. The end result creates flavours that are bold and delicious.”
“Our Tandoori oven reaches 500 degrees, creating the most tender and juicy Tandoori chicken in town.”
“It's not your everyday Indian but at the same time makes you feel like you are right in India.”
Yo India began operating in 2014 when the Gomes’ decided they wanted to do something for themselves.
“We knew we had a great product that we put a lot of love into. The food truck was a great 'vehicle' to bring food, people and our culture together.”
Their favourite part of the food truck industry has been meeting people from all over Australia at a range of great events, including one customer who had a particularly high-spice tolerance.
“He asked if we could "spice-it-up-a-bit-you-know?", so we put in about a month's worth of chili of what we eat average at home in one dish.”
“He came back in 5 minutes with the plate empty, saying it's bloody delicious but not hot enough. Out of curiosity we decided to taste it. Boom!!!! And they said Indian people eat spicy!”
The Gomes’ love being a part of great events like the Food Truck Carnival as they get to help put Melbourne’s street food on the map.
