A Sandwich a Day: P.W.C.D. Roll at Biryani Cart

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

In addition to the delicately spiced rice dish from which it takes its name, midtown Halal cart Biryani Cart (which, yes, we love quite a bit) offers up several very respectable kati rolls: addictive wraps of meats, vegetables, and eggs stuffed inside buttery griddled paratha, a stretchy, whole wheat flatbread. We tried the strangely titled P.W.C.D. Roll ($3), a vegetarian option stuffed with scrambled eggs and a mound of creamy, perfectly cooked cubed potatoes. It gets topped off with a cooling yogurt sauce for tang and creaminess. Midtown Manhattan might sometimes seem like a culinary wasteland, but this kati roll is an oasis of deliciousness.
