Try and die!!!

I had heard so much about Prabhu Chaat Bhandar located outside the Union Public Service Commission building on Shahjahan Road – that I had to try it.

The setting was fabulous! Exactly what one would picture a truly authentic street side chatwala to be. Created from a makeshift set of stalls erected on the sidewalk the stall was filled with cauldrons of simmering mixtures ready to be put together in various plates offered.



I loved the very officious looking cash counter where one obtains a brightly colored token to buy any of the 9 items offered on their menu. One can basically get the most popular of street chaat items – papdi chaat, aloo tikki chaat, aloo chaat and golguppas. For dessert they offer kulfi (which is an Indian ice-cream) and gulabjamuns.




Whilst the experience was great, the pushing and nudging ones way into the crowds to get to the eats etc… but the food sucked! Nothing I tried was even remotely tasty. What was worse was that I got really really sick from what I ate (and I rarely get sick from street food).

 My recommendation – skip this one – its not worth the hype. There are so many better chaat experiences to be had in Delhi.
