Grab-and-go venue Bengal Brothers brings kati rolls to Hong Kong
First off, what is a kati roll? Well, for the uninitiated, a kati roll is a street food item that comes from Kolkata, West Bengal. Its original form was a meat kebab (roasted on an iron skewer) wrapped in a paratha (Indian flatbread) and was known simply as a ‘roll’ before evolving into what it is today. Now, the kati roll, which takes its name from the Bengali reference to the word ‘stick’ (as iron skewers were replaced with bamboo sticks for both practicality and portability), can be anything from chicken, chickpeas, egg, or paneer and is a wildly popular fast food across India.
The new grab-and-go venue Bengal Brothers brings India’s kati rolls, along with other street-food inspired bowls, snacks, lassis and drinks (all around $100) to Wan Chai for anyone looking for a quick bite on the go. The shop also offers a click-and-mortar system that enables customers to order ahead and quick self-service for ease and convenience.
Bengal Brother’s kati rolls feature a variety of fillings, from chargrilled meat or vegetables, topped with fresh salad and drizzled with signature handmade chutneys, spice blends, pickled vegetables, or toasted coconut, all rolled into homemade warm and flaky paratha. Their signature kati roll, The BB Classic, is a combination of chicken tikka and freshly beaten egg which is a popular option in India too. Other kati rolls on the menu also stay true to India’s regional flavours, with a pork kati roll inspired by the southwest, and chickpeas from the northwest.
