Married couple Swetha and Venkat Raju moved to America from Bangalore in 2016. They had no plans of opening what is now considered a “culinary sensation”.

The couple have 2 children aged 13 and 7 years old. They also have full-time jobs. While Swetha is a software engineer, Venkat is a lawyer. Yet despite their daily responsibilities, the two maintain the food stand.

“We really, really missed home when we first came here, so we just started cooking and inviting neighbors over, to the lounge area where we lived in City Point. Just to meet people” Swetha explained to Brooklyn Magazine.
