The Kati Roll Company

Of all the markets to monopolize in Manhattan, The Kati Roll Company bet on a simple street food—Kolkata-style rolls involving kebabs and paneer wrapped in pan-fried parathas—and won. There are around five vegetarian and five meat kathi roll options at this chain's multiple New York locations, with everything from shami kebab and chicken tikka to egg with tons of mint chutney mixed in, and our personal favorite: a tangy achari paneer roll flavored with spicy vegetable and fruit pickles. The Bryant Park location has a few tables if you want to take a quick breather with a cup of chai, but kathi rolls are also an obvious choice for a portable lunch on-the-go.
