Desi Chaat House is an Indian cafe in West Philly with a very long list of chaats, which are potato-based, multi-layer dishes usually covered in tangy yogurt. And Desi Chaat House carries both savory ones, like the traditional Papri Chaat, and sweet versions with tamarinds and dates mixed in. Come here if you want to grab a quick bite between classes, or for a take out dinner when you can’t seem to summon the strength to make it to the grocery store. And whatever you do, get a mango lassi for dessert. It’s kind of like a mango smoothie, with cold, creamy yogurt and sweet mango blended in - it’s one of our favorite desserts in the area.
