Desi and Co.

Me and my friends are always on a lookout for a new hangout place where we can get good affordable food. So my friend came across this restaurant Desi & Co. and suggested it to us.

On a Saturday evening we decided to give the place a try. It’s in DHA Phase 4 in the same lane where Burger Shack is. The place is small and neat. I loved the desi quirky quotes that were hanging on the walls. 

We were a group of 7 – 8 people so only two of them placed order for us. I don’t remember the details but we opted for round regular parathas with filling of hara bhara aalu, chicken achari, chicken cheese and chicken fajita. In the end we wouldn’t resist the temptation and ordered Nutella paratha as well. The owner of the place, Misbah, she helped us select flavors of the dough and all because the menu was extensive.

Hands down the parathas were absolutely yum.  It’s hard to believe but there was almost no oil in the paratha and plenty of filling. I have had aalu parathas from many places but always they have tasted bitter. At Desi & Co. I liked the aaluu paratha better than the chicken cheese paratha!

My next favorite in terms of flavor was the achari paratha. Fajita paratha not only had chicken in it but vegetables as well. Nutella paratha didn’t have that oomph factor perhaps a bit of more Nutella would have made it a lot tastier.

We were given free Kheer on check in as well. My friends ordered lassi and they liked it.

Overall the owner is friendly, the service was swift, the chutnies and raitas were finger licking good, the parathas were yum and the bill was pocket friendly.

 Overall would give the place 8.5 out of 10.
