The chicken/egg roll makes a terrific meal at Hot Kati Roll on Park Street. A delicious paratha wrap cooked before your eyes, with and egg fried right into it. Add tasty spiced chicken and some condiments, and it’s great. Really, really delicious.
Hot Kati Roll is a shed attached to the outer wall of the Asiatic Society, founded in 1784. So it’s also got a historic setting.
The three-man crew makes an interesting brigade. A kid rolls out the dough balls, a wok guy fries them and does something very tricky with the egg, and a third guy assembles and “plates” by wrapping them in paper and a napkin. Pastry cook, line cook, chef at the pass: fine dining
