HOUSTON – “Wrap your head around it” is the motto you will find you Twisted Turban. That’s exactly what happened to me after trying Tex-Indian food for the first time.

Honestly, I had never heard of Tex-Indian food before. I’ve had lots of Tex-Mex and Indian food, but the combination of both was a whole new world.

I discovered Twisted Turban on Instagram through the tag #HoustonFood. With hundreds of photos on the social media site, it was the colorful loaded fries that caught my attention. After digging through Twisted Turban’s endless feed of savory food pics, I knew I had to check them out.

Before I stuffed my face with burger, fries, and tacos I got a chance to chat with Chef Fariha Dhanani. She explained the restaurant was inspired by Houston’s diverse flavors, bringing two cuisines and cultures into one place.

At this family-owned and operated business, Dhanani and her team make everything from scratch including their 6-hour smoked brisket and mouth-watering sauces.

Twisted Turban does not mess around when it comes to sauces. Both its Turban Burger and loaded fries were topped with a signature Turban sauce. Dhanani was right. It was a flavor like I never had before. I think the video above speaks on how much I enjoyed the Turban Burger.

Will I eat Tex-Indian food again?

Without a doubt! I have never had anything like this before. If you know me pretty well, you know my love for Spicy food.
