Hours: Open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
If you've already tried the cult combination of Japan and Mexico at Soho SushiBurrito, rush over to the eastside to be among the first to sample the next fast food phenomena, created by a very familiar local name.
Desi Burrito is now open from breakfast to dinner, inside a piece of roadside Americana, their unique burrito-shaped drive-thru. Merging India and Mexico, the health conscious concept also welcomes walk-up guests and has a patio with room for 16.
Created by Kris and Bindi Parikh, owners of Mint Indian Bistro, which sits a short walk away in the same Flamingo retail center, Desi serves a healthy fast food alternative merging their brand of Indian food in a familiar Mexican format.
From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m the menu is anchored by the Desi burrito or bowl. Guests can add proteins such as chicken chili with makhani sauce, lamb stir fry and tofu chili. Rice choices are lemon or masala styles of white or brown rice. A combo comes with a soda and masala fries.
The mumbai chaat snacks include a vegetable samosa, pani puri and kurkuri bhindi. The Parikh's have been careful to create a menu with options for guests looking for halal, vegan and gluten-free fast food.
A kids combo offers quesadillas with fries and apple juice and the breakfast menu includes the "organic tofu kale scramble burrito," an "omelet English muffin sandwich" and a "chia protein bowl" with organic coffee.
Mint Indian Origin will also be expanding their main restaurant, debuting later this year in Spring Valley.
