A golgappa walla on the street is better than the one in a mall. As I overheard a woman describing the difference in a funny sarcastic way, “Unless you see the sweaty golgappa walla cleaning his hand with a shabby cloth, and then dipping his dirty hand in his water jar, you don’t feel like you have had the real taste.”
Inspired by this lady, here’s my favourite list. Would love to hear about and taste from your favourites.
-Guptaji Chhole Bhature wala at ITO. His are the best street chhola bhaturas I have had in Delhi. You don’t feel the heaviness, oiliness and richness after having a plate. He claims home-made masalas to be the reason for this.
-Bombay Bhel puri wala in Sunder Nagar. His Kolkata batata puri and other chats are yummy and light on stomach.
-Kachori-sabzi near Filmistan/Azad market. You can’t have just one plate. You feel like having another for the taste.
-Jodhpuri kachori/pyaz kachori at New Delhi Railway station.
-Samosas of “Garden of five senses”
-“Aloo bondas” of CR Park market.
-Amritsari naans at Makbool Road, Amritsar
-Chai on Kolkata streets
-Sweets from Chhappan Bhog Sweets, Bishtupur, Jamshedpur
In low-priced restraunts, I like Yellow Chilli in Pacific Mall, Ghaziabad, Kabab Krazy, EDM Mall, East Delhi, Don Giovani’s Pizzas, Kolkata (no longer there perhaps), loochi and chholar daal at Haldirams Kolkata. Used to like Madras Hotel, CP for South Indian food.
So guys any invites for your favourite eating joints or at least recommendations. 😉 For now, I am feeling hungry like I haven’t eaten for a month so ciao. Gotta rush to the nearest food plaza. Slurp!!!!
