Fishtown review - Sketch and Ekta

mazza3 | Jul 30, 2008 11:18 AM

For all who didn't know, two yummy new places opened on East Girard in the past few weeks - Sketch, a burger joint, and Ekta, an Indian restaurant. First, the burgers...

The burger I had at Sketch was a-mazing! super fresh and juicy (slightly over-cooked, but I like mine very pink, BUT that did not compromise the flavor at all). I ordered it with bacon and American Cheddar blend and the harissa aioli sauce and YUM! The serve vegan burgers, chicken burgers, smashed onion burgers, turkey burgers....pretty much everyone can eat there. They have all the good toppings (avocado! yum!) and a good cheese selection but unfortunately, all they make are burgers (no fries) and milkshakes. The shakes I hear are bangin too, but I would love the option for some fries...

I know that Ekta is close to Tiffin and will draw inevitable comparisons, but all I have to say is yum!! I had the Aloo (Alu) Gobi and Masaladar Chana and the chickpea dish was outstanding!! The cauliflower (aloo gobi) was also excellent. Their naan is excellent as is ther garlic kabob appetizer, and I have heard good reports on their samosas and chicken tikka masala.

Go to Fishtown and eat! Who would have ever thought those words would ever be linked together? It ain't just bars with good food anymore (Johnny Brenda's, M Room (surprisingly) and Memphis Taproom) and good pancakes (Sulimay's)....
