A taste of Pakistan in Union Square comes to us from Desi Shack, a great little take out, "on the go" joint serving delicious and flavorful paratha rolls and rice bowls. I stopped in recently and loved my chicken tikka paratha roll..Tried one of their basmati rice bowls as well, loaded with a little bit of everything they had. Sort of like Chipotle-style, you choose from either a paratha roll, basmati rice bowl, or salad bowl, then you choose your protein- chicken tikka or beef keema, or for you vegetarians they have achari paneer (farmer's cheese) or aloo masala (potatoes cooked in a blend of spices). Then you add your salad options, and choose a chutney. It's all flavorful and tasty, and a great option should you be in the Union Square area. Get your Desi on!
