Today, August 18, marks the opening of South Street's Spice End, a kati roll and platter shop on the corner of 7th and South Streets, in what used to be Dickey's BBQ.
For the uninitiated, kati rolls are a popular Indian street food made of rolled roti (warm, blistery Indian flatbread) stuffed with marinated meats, vegetables and spices of your own choosing (peep the menu below).
With a location already in Center City location, plus a University-roaming food truck, owner Meet Patel opened his second brick-and-mortar today with a similar menu to Center City's, but with the addition of snackier, "Indo-Chinese" items like fried rice, fried cauliflower, and chicken 65 — a spicy, saucy, deep-fried boneless chicken dish popular in South India.
Hours today will go until 11 p.m. today, and this weekend till 2 a.m. A store employee said "maybe next week it'll be open until 3 a.m. on weekends." Delivery and take-out will be your best bet, so place your order at 267-534-5970.
