Tiffins are the light lunches delivered to Indian workers via a complex network of tiffin-carriers. Tiffin Store brings the concept to the outskirts of Northern Liberties.
Online or by phone, customers can order box meals of two entrees, dal, raita and pickles. The real tiffins are homemade lunches, and Tiffin.com is aiming for authenticity — it’s the meal your wife would make you if you lived in India and had a wife who made you lunch. The food is cooked in smaller batches, with less oil than restaurant food. This fact is obvious in the vivid colors and distinct flavors of the curries themselves, like the rosy gold aloo gobi with its turmeric-stained cauliflower, potatoes and zingy bits of ginger.
