Prabhu Chaat Bhandar (Popularly Known as UPSC Chaat Wala) – Serving Customers Since 86 Years in Delhi

Alighted at Lok Kalyan Marg (Race Course) metro station and a walk towards Indira Gandhi Memorial.

After visiting Indira Gandhi Memorial another walk towards Gandhi Smriti.

After spending lots of time at both heritage places, I was hungry and what better than visiting Prabhu Chaat Bhandar next to the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) building inside UPSC lane.

I hired an auto from Gandhi Smriti and told him that I want to go to Prabhu Chaat Bhandar close to UPSC. He was aware of the location. He dropped me exactly outside the UPSC Museum building. Prabhu Chaat Bhandar is inside the lane.

How much I paid the auto fare from Gandhi Smriti to the UPSC Museum building?

I always love street food and I liked Prabhu Chaat Bhandar Aloo-Tikki – irresistible, Hot & Delicious

One of the unbeatable street food shops. Nothing fancy. Nice posh location to have street food.

No seating arrangements which is good.

The ambiance is peaceful but crowded.

I saw a monkey – beware.

Recommended for at least once to have an experience especially if you are in around UPSC area. The journey continues..
