This week's Feed Me video brings us to Aminia of Calcutta, one of Hicksville's tops for international dining. For diners, Hicksville is the United Nations of Long Island, full of ethnic restaurants -- and all the decisions that follow. One restaurant that sticks out, however, is the 80-year-old establishment famous for its street-food marvel, the kati roll

Shariq Ali, whose great-grandfather founded the first Aminia of Kolkata, in India in 1929, says the original place is still going strong and just may be Calcutta’s biggest eatery. With such dishes as the Aminia roll and its famous kebabs, Aminia may just be one of Hicksville's best eateries. Meredith Daniels takes a behind-the-scenes tour to find out how the Mughili-style dishes are made and to try them out herself. Get your passport ready and take a trip to a new worldy experience.

Interested in enjoying a feast fit for a Maharajah? The modest 16-seat spot is at 253 S. Broadway in Hicksville. No need to bust out the big bucks, either. With rolls starting at just $2.50, a better deal would be hard to come by.
