Hurry in for Curry
It’s no secret that one of my favorite go-to takeout spots over the years has been Curry in a Hurry (2020 S. State, 801-467-4137). I love curry so much that my cat is even named Curry. Well, I’m pleased as punch to announce that a second Curry in a Hurry location has opened, this one in Sugar House at 2223 S. Highland Drive (801-487-2994). Among the reasons owner Mona Nisar cites for opening Curry in a Hurry: “It’s very satisfying for me to feed my own family, but it’s not enough. I want to feed the whole community the same way.” For those not familiar, Curry in a Hurry is a halal restaurant featuring quick, inexpensive Indian and Pakistani food.
