Kati Roll Company are delicious to the nth degree, except they're on the opposite side of Midtown from my job, and the lines during lunch can be so long, there's no way for me to make it there, eat, and get back. But I didn't have work this week, and I did find myself hungry in Midtown. To Kati Roll it was!
I've been craving Kati Roll for a while, most likely due to me walking by the restaurant frequently so it was a no-brainer when hunger pangs hit me during a shopping tour (the sales are outrageous!) The restaurant was empty save for the workers, two lovebirds, and Bollywood posters, this is perfect because it means no line. At Kati Roll, freshness matters; they make the paratha bread on-site, and it is greasy. The orders are also à la minute hence the line that quickly forms during lunch. I went with the Achari Paneer (Indian cottage cheese in spicy pickle) and Chicken Tikka.
Kati Roll has another location in New York, 99 Macdougal Street, which is open late into the night. A third store is in London, and that one sells sandwiches too, something I think the other side of the pond would love!
