Manteca has another pizza place.

But it’s a pizza restaurant with a twist.

The Curry Pizza House is now open at The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley along the lifestyle center’s interior “main street”.

The pizza parlor at 878 Lifestyle Street within Orchard Valley has already had a soft opening. It’s grand opening is taking place Thursday, July 21, at noon.

Owned by Gursewak Gill, it is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Curry Pizza House’s cuisine employs a creative mixture of spices and traditional Indian flavors with an eye towards fresh ingredients.

Among the examples include:

* Curry Chicken Masala Pizza mixing curry sauce with gooey cheese and a smattering of vegetables.

*Palak Paneer Pizza combining pesto sauce with masala paneer, ginger and garlic.

*Aloo Chaat Pizza  with house red sauce and marinated potatoes.

There are also expanded vegetarian offerings as well as  traditional pizza fare.

Curry Pizza House also offers a unique take on chicken wings,  marinating them in various curries, spices, and sauces like tikka, achari, and tandoori. 


Two more take out papers to

run for mayor, council seats

On Tuesday, current Councilman Gary Singh took out nomination papers for mayor while former councilman Mike Morowit has taken out papers for the District 4 seat.

As it stands now, three people are circulating nomination papers for mayor —Singh, incumbent Ben Cantu and newcomer Lei Ann Larson.

Incumbent Councilman Dave Breitenbucher is also circulating nomination papers for re-election to his District 3 council seat.

The hopefuls must turn in at least 20 signatures of people that can be verified as registered voters within the city limits to qualify for the ballot.

The deadline for filing nomination papers is Aug. 12.

More information is available through the city clerk’s office.

While the election for mayor is citywide, the Nov. 8 election will be the first time voting for council seats will be by districts.

This means those who wish to run for office ads well as those voting for them must reside in a specific district.

District 4  includes all of Manteca north of Louise Avenue on both sides of Highway 99.

District 3 is bounded on the north by Louise Avenue, on the east by Highway 99, and on the south by the 120 Bypass.

The western boundary starts at the 120 Bypass and Union Road, jogs to the east on Wawona Street and then swings north on El Portal for a block before shifting slightly to the northwest onto El Capitan. It then heads east on Nevada Street for a block and then heads north on Walnut Avenue before turning east on Alameda and then heading north along the Tidewater to Louise Avenue.

District 3 contains all of pre-1965 Manteca that includes downtown and Manteca High.
