When peering out into the Charleston culinary landscape, many will say that something (or a lot) is missing. When Eater posed this question in 2015, answers ranged from German to dim sum to poutine. One cuisine was repeated over and over — Indian. Though it seems someone is finally to the rescue of all those chana masala cravings.

Post and Courier writer Hanna Raskin reports that delivery-only venture Kumar’s Indian Kitchen recently launched with a partnership with QuickFoxes. Proprietor Mark Schwartz has paired with chef Vikesh Kumar to bring northern Indian cooking to the Lowcountry. Raskin sampled a few of the dishes and calls the “zesty” chana masala “especially impressive.” Ordering takes place online and there is a delivery fee.

Virtual restaurants like Kumar’s are becoming increasingly popular across the country with the raise of costs associated with opening a traditional brick and mortar. Check out this explainer from Eater as to why this might be happening.
