Before you ask, there was no stomach ache in the making of this post. “Gas station Indian food? He must be nuts!” you are saying to yourself. There is a Race Star in Carteret with a convenience store attached to it. While now they only sell the samosas (and empanadas) pictured above, at one point, they had a full Indian menu (Justin ate there once before last year).
We talked to the worker there since we were disappointed to learn that they are only currently doing breakfast sandwiches, and he pointed to their very own tandoori oven which is no longer in use. As for how it tasted? Delicious! The samosas were vegetarian and had a decent amount of spice. The chicken empanada was forgettable, but talk about a conversation piece at work the next day after everyone saw this picture and story on Instagram.
