NIZAM’S KATHI ROLLS, NEW DELHI, INDIA

NIZAM’S KATHI ROLLS, NEW DELHI, INDIA
 

 

The name Nizam’s is almost synonymous with kathi rolls in India. They were one of the first ones to popularize this food that has its historic origins in cuisine from the princely states of North Eastern India.

A kathi roll is a very popular fast food in India. The meats used in these rolls are traditionally cooked in a charcoal pit using wooden skewers, which are called “Kathi’s”; hence the name Kathi Kababs or Kathi rolls.

Last night, I was invited to attend a media reception organized to celebrate the opening of The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park.

Every holiday season, Bryant Park is transformed into a vibrant hubbub of activity. This tree-lined space comes alive with twinkling lights, a skating rink and unique vendor booths. This holiday fair features more than 120 artisans and merchants selling one-of-a-kind merchandise that promises to make for exciting holiday gifts.

The Grub Street Food Festival at Hester Street Fair, New York City

 


 

The Lower East Side was really hopping today with New York Magazines Grub Street Food Festival at the Hester Street Fair. This food festival offered up a smorgasbord of some 70-plus-food vendors who were selling everything from lobster rolls to lollipop cupcakes.

Along with all the great food there were some amazing vendors selling their merchandise. Of course my very favorite booth was Pages of My Life Journal , where we were selling our beautiful gratitude journals for women and children.

THE KING OF FALAFEL AND SHAWARMA, ASTORIA, NYC

THE KING OF FALAFEL AND SHAWARMA, ASTORIA, NYC

King of Falafel & Shawarma on Urbanspoon


MY RATINGS FOR THIS MEAL

Food: ☆☆☆

Service: ☆☆☆

Cost: $

I recommend: Falafel

 

And the winner of this years Vendy Awards is……….

Farez “Freddy” Zeideia’s – the King of Falafel and Shawarma.



I really do agree with the king of falafel part. Freddy fries up an unbeatable, oblong shaped falafel, which is absolutely delicious. Its crisp on the outside and the filling is perfectly spiced.

The best part is that you get to try a free falafel while you wait for your order to be cooked up.

Freddy’s halal cart serves up quite a variety of shawarma, falafel and chicken rice combinations.

I really liked the basmati rice that comes with their rice platters. It is very nicely flavored and the pickled turnips that they add to their salad really adds great bite.

All the people working at the King of Falafel and Shawarma cart are super friendly and even though it is a food cart, it has a nice homey, community feel to it.

So if you are in and around Astoria, do make sure that you go and pay homage to the king!


Here is some of what we ate:



FALAFEL




CHICKEN AND RICE PLATE




SHAWARMA PLATE

HESTER STREET FAIR – FOOD
Hester and Essex St,
New York, NY.
(Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm, April through December)

As a foodie, I find the Lower East Side so charming. Quaint little food shops and restaurants are popping up all over the place and I for one just love to explore it all.

One of my most interesting recent finds was the Hester Street Fair located at Hester and Essex Street.

The Hester Street Fair is a brand new street fair, which is modeled on the Brooklyn Flea. At this hip little market one can find everything from macarons to men’s shirts!
