NYC’s Babu Ji Serves Up Brunch with a Technicolor Twist
Brunch just got a major makeover.
New York City’s innovative Indian restaurant, Babu Ji, is putting a creative—and colorful—twist on a southern standby.
After closing their East Village location and reopening in shiny new digs off Union Square, Babu Ji has emerged better than ever. The Australian import is known for its fun approach to Indian cuisine and an eclectic menu featuring inventive spins on classic street foods, regional curries, and tandoori-baked proteins.
Babu Ji also crushes the brunch game with one of the most unique (and incredibly ’grammable) dishes we’ve ever seen. Bet you’ve never had chicken and waffles like this before:
The resto’s signature ‘Masala Fried Chicken & Technicolor Waffles’ are a big hit at brunch. These fluffy waffles come in four colors (thanks to natural dyes: beetroot, turmeric, and spinach) and are topped with crispy chicken tenders flavored with fragrant spice powders.
After the chicken is fried, it gets tossed in a sweet orange-maple glaze and placed on the vibrant quad-color waffle along with luscious coconut-vanilla cream, fresh mint, edible flowers, and silver leaf for extra sparkle.
Brunch never looked so beautiful.
