Akriti MalhotraCo-Founder & Chef, Aku’s – the brrgrr co

An Economics Degree, a stint in Risk Advisory at Ernst & Young, a formal education as a trained chef from The Culinary Institute of America, New York, working experiences at French Michelin 3 star Fine Dine Restaurants in New York and then finally as an Executive Sous Chef at DIVA restaurants, Akriti Malhotra realized that the burger she could grab so casually around the block in Manhattan was not available anywhere in Delhi and for that matter, not even the whole of India. Hoping to open a homegrown space that could serve up those original burgers as well as her iteration of the burgers, fries, ice-cream milkshakes, and poutines that are made from scratch, food she craved and would absolutely enjoy, became the inception of AKU's in 2017. She went from being a chef at a french fine dine restaurant to someone making sure that everyone in Delhi gets their fix of good sumptuous burgers and more, that are the real thing and not laden with preservatives.
