Kati Roll Now Offers Delivery, Introduces Strange New Menu
When Kati Roll lost their lease, and was forced to move from 46th St. to 39th St. (btw. 5+6th), it was at the peak of Midtown Lunch popularity. There were long lines to order, 20+ minute waits for your food and it even spawned two copycat carts down the street (only one of them survived).
Now, 4 months later and in their new location, the lines are gone. The crowds, nowhere to be found as the new Kati Roll waits for the lazy, set in their ways workers in Midtown South to discover them for the first time. One thing that hasn’t changed, is the food, and if you work near the old Kati Roll and don’t have time to walk the extra 7 blocks to the new location, they now offer delivery.
The minimum order is $20, but they told me if you got above $15 they would probably do it. The delivery area is from 30th St. to 50th St., between Lexington & 8th Ave. They’ve also added a new, and fairly strange take out menu- for those who are not so good at reading.
Check it out after the jump…
So weird, and mildly off putting- and yet I can’t pull my eyes away from it. It should clearly be an entry on Suicide Food, a website dedicated to advertising where cute animals encourage people to eat them. I’m all for knowing what animal your food comes from, but for some reason- this menu strikes me as a little creepy. And yet, I want to frame it and hang it up in my apartment.
One thing I don’t understand is why mutton was spared the humiliation of having a cute little baby lamb advertising the delicious Shami Kebab rolls. Perhaps Kati Roll sides with the Simpsons. Mutton is lamb Lisa, not A lamb.
To order delivery from Kati Roll, call 212-730-4280, or get off your lazy ass and visit them on 39th St. btw. 5+6th Ave.
