Gaia Masala & Burger

This is the second Denver outpost of Gaia Masala & Burger, a fast-casual restaurant offering straight-up Indian dishes, a smattering of Mediterranean entrees like falafel and shawarma, and a handful of burgers. But dig deeper into the menu and you'll find the really exciting stuff : neon-orange tikka masala cheesesteaks (made with beef at the restaurant's original Boulder location and chicken in Denver); a burger topped with mint, cucumber and tikka masala sauce; and (our fave!) cheesy masala fries served plain or loaded up with a choice of chicken, lamb or cheesesteak. The restaurant also offers three different burger variations for both vegetarians and vegans, as well as a vegetarian jackfruit cheesesteak — and you can get them all until 2 a.m., as Gaia is one of the few Denver eateries open ’til the wee hours.
