Paratta is a modern Desi food experience, bringing an authentic and premium South Asian street food experience to the masses. Our name comes from the flaky, buttery lachha paratha that we use to wrap our rolls, made in-house in our Los Angeles Arts District kitchen.
We pride ourselves in where our food is from and how it gets raised, and that's why we only use 101% halal-certified meat along with the freshest and finest ingredients. And we're the only place in the world where you can eat South Asian food sourced with 100% grass-fed, organic wagyu beef.
We put tremendous attention into respecting our customers’ diets, and care deeply about the inclusion of everyone. We’re proud to be brown and want to spread the great tastes and beauty that Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and other South Asian countries have to offer. In doing so, we hope to raise awareness of our cultures to those that are unaware, and give American Desis a larger voice.
We created Paratta due to the absence of South Asian places proudly using high-end and premium ingredients in Southern California. We couldn’t find any presentable or clean place proudly representing our culture, history and food, and absolutely no one was showcasing desi street food as it deserved.
Paratta makes everything in-house. Our lachha parathas are made daily by hand, with our own chefs using our own home-grown recipe. And unlike the parathas we grew up with, we knew parathas didn’t need to be greasy and heavy. We designed our parathas to not make you feel gross after devouring a paratha roll or two, and we found the right balance between taste and texture without the extra grease.Very few South Asian eateries in America are using premium ingredients like Paratta — not a single place serves wagyu beef. We’re the first and only desi place to proudly serve 100% grass-fed, organic wagyu beef, and we want everyone to realize you can taste the difference. Our goal has always been to serve authentic South Asian street food using high-end and premium ingredients. These are the ingredients you would typically find in a restaurant, and we’re doing it in a food truck. We’re trying to evolve desi cuisine in Southern California. The struggle has been to change the way people look at South Asian food — limited to just curry, naan, poor ingredients and holes in the wall. Instead, we’re choosing to elevate the cuisine for those who know and love it, and more importantly to introduce a completely different side of the cuisine for those that are new to it.
Thus the premium experience of Paratta was born. We’re very proud of it and want to expose it to as many people as we can.
