6. Thali – Street Side Stall

This basic thali has a good serving size that can fill one’s stomach. The rice is undercooked and is chewy. The gravy available is that of soya and has a good consistency and flavor. The dal is diluted, and it feels almost like you’re having water with some dal mixed in it. The flavor of the dal is great though. With this thali, a mixed vegetable pickle is also served.

7. Maska Pav and Cutting Chai – K.G.N Nagori Tea and Cold Drinks

The tea here is made for the cutting chai lovers. Less sugar ensures that the tea flavor is prominent and strong. The consistency though isn’t the best; it’s slightly watery, but the cardamom flavor makes up for this. The maska pav is very soft and fresh. It’s slightly sweet and loaded with butter. This standard Tea-Bun combination here is definitely worth trying.

It is topped with sev and served dry. Try this different chili cheese toast here. This place is open throughout the year.

9. Belgium Mousse – Mother’s Bakery

This creamy delight is an average dessert after all. The cream is sweet and tasty; but an excessive amount of gelatin seems to be added to it. It’s adequately sweet and the chocolate chips are delicious as toppings. The texture is smooth and the presentation makes it appear very tempting.

10. Kanda Bhajji – Hathi Kheda Thakur Vada Pav Shop

Besan lovers will absolutely love this bhajji. With fewer onions and more besan, this is an absolute treat. The salt content is proper and the oil content is minimal as well, but the bhajji is very hard, probably because it wasn’t freshly made when we went. The accompanying pudina chutney is a great sidekick and is tasty, and the sweet chutney is slightly watery yet tasty.

  • Where: opp Relaible Business Centre, near Hera Panna Mall.
