Desi Galli Now Serving Indian Soul Food In Murray Hill

There's a new Indian join in the area of Murray Hill that's affectionately known as Curry Hill to some lovers of the country's cuisine. Desi Galli, from the owners of area restaurant Bhatti Indian Grill, is now serving an inexpensive take on Indian comfort food that's built around parantha, a bread that is consumed in India at all times of the day. Along with other bread options like Roomali roti from central India, the dough can be used to create wraps and sandwiches with filling like slow cooked lamb and chicken tikka. There are also snacks like veggie samosas and vada pav, which is essentially the Indian version of a slider.

Galli means "alley", but visitors won't find this space totally cramped. There is a small cafe in the basement where guests can enjoy free WiFi and space to watch sports on a flat screen TV. The spot is especially good if you're looking to keep things cheap - none of the menu options are over $10, a rare find even in this unusually cheap area of town. The restaurant is located at 101 Lexington Avenue at 27 Street (212-683-2292).
