This nook of a restaurant doesn't offer much by way of seating, save for a couple uncomfortable stools, but you won't care once you taste the vibrant Indian street snacks it dishes up. Much of the menu is devoted to "famous Nizami rolls," also known as kati rolls or paratha wraps. They're yummy, but even better are the chaats, which include a peanutty jaal mori and a delicious bhel pori--a large portion of puffed rice, cucumber, a smattering of red onions, and two kinds of chutney. Consider it a savory breakfast cereal, amped up with a lashing of chiles. You'll never eat Rice Krispies again.
