New food truck OM Karmabile, which launched in August, serves Indian/Fijian food, reports Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
Like many food truck owners, Voltair and Seronika Ignacio tried to open a traditional restaurant, but couldn’t secure loans in the post-Great Recession business climate.
According to Seronika, it turned out to be a good thing.
“This seems more convenient for family life,” she said. “We work four days a week, and it’s flexible, and I get some time to stay home with the kids.”
Together, they make Indian fusion food based on Seronika’s lifelong pursuit of the culinary arts from Fiji and Voltair’s more traditional Indian tastes. Seronika said she is Indian, but she grew up in Fiji, learning how to cook from an early age from her grandmother and other relatives. Voltair grew up near McKinley Park in Sacramento.
Burritos are $6, with tacos costing $3.

Bows and Arrows / Fat Face - Bows and Arrows is a shop of many faces. It's a cute vintage boutique, a charming cafe, and a lively venue for local musicians and artists all under one roof. Recently, my friend Lacy and I met up there for a late afternoon bite to eat. I'd been meaning to check the place out for quite awhile, as it's only a stone's throw from my cottage; unfortunately, the idea would always cross my mind on Mondays- when the business was closed. Gah! Anyhow, I finally made it there and it didn't disappoint. Ally Gaffan on A Girl and Her Fork.
