During Chandigarh tour I inquire from local friends about popular eating places and restaurants in city because food at North India I find one of the best specially street food though I like homemade food.
The list was prepared by a friend. Thank you – said I.
Few of the eating places I visited and few yet to be visited.
Pal Dhaba, Sector-28 D was the first restaurant visited.
We were three and the menu:
Chicken Curry, Mutter Paneer, Kadhi and Tandoori Roti.
Total amount was Rs. 650/- for three people.
Favorite was Kadhi specially Pakora. Very tasteful.
One evening I was interested in having Chaat and as per list:
Garg Chaat, Sector-23 C (since 1968)
I had Moong Dal Tikki Chaat and later Gol Gappe.
Cost – Rs. 30 for Chaat and Rs. 20 for 6 Gol Gappe.
Special Dake Wali Kulfi specially mentioned in menu for summer days maybe.
Moong Dal Tikki was crispy and favorite.
Eating House, Sector-22 D, Shop No. 50
Another day another eating place.
I had Aaloo Tikki Chaat and Gol Gappe
Rs. 30 for Chaat and Rs. 20 for 5 Gol Gappe.
Regarding Chaat and Gol Gappe both above mentioned places are good.
Eating House one can also have Noodles, Kadhi Chawal, Chole Chawal etc. etc.
Tehal Singh’s, Sector-22B
I check the menu and I order for something special from Tehal Singh’s i.e.,
Murg Tehal Singh’s Special, Tandoori Roti and Mirinda.
Cost – Rs. 311/-
Tehal Singh’s is special. Murg (chicken) was very very tasty.
It is difficult to mention taste via writing but yes, I find recommended eating places by local friends really really good. What I like the most about restaurants and eating places in Chandigarh was less spicy eatables.
Street Food is less visible in Chandigarh as compared to other cities in India. Anyways, more eating places on the list maybe will update you sooner or later. Thank you.
Sindhi Sweets, Sector-17 c, behind I.S.B.T was mentioned by local and I was there for lunch. It is a two floor restaurant. I was at second floor as first floor was house full. Ground floor is having varieties of sweets displayed.
As the name was Sindhi Sweets I decided to try ‘Sindhi Dal’ but to have roti or rice or naan I was not sure. I requested the person attending the table to take his decision and serve. He suggested Jeera Rice.
Ok – said I.
As per personal taste I find ‘Sindhi Dal’ on its own was very good in taste but if taken with roti the decision would be much better. And then I requested for Kulfi Faluda.
Total Rs. 360/- I paid.
Later talking with local I was suggested to try ‘Channa Bhatura’ as Sindhi Sweets is famous for the same.
Ok will do one day and I have to taste sweets also – said I.
Emm Ell’s Hot Stoppers, Sector 17
I had chilli chicken and softy.
Chilli chiken for Rs. 80 and softy for Rs. 30.
Indian Coffee House, Sector 17 E
Indian Coffee House is one of the oldest in Chandigarh. It was established on 27th October, 1957.
Here we had one Egg Uttapam for Rs. 62 and a cup of coffee for Rs. 24.
Preet Eating Zone, Phase 7, Mohali
Famous for Kadhi chawal, Rajma chawal
Mammu Tea Stall, Phase 7, Mohali
The tea is extra-ordinary for Rs. 7 only.
The list is endless. Will try to update as soon as I taste more food in around Chandigarh and Mohali.
Krishna Chat Shop, 34 C
Though 34 C is famous for furniture market but it is also having some good food joints. At Krishna we had dahi wale gol gappe for Rs. 30 and later tikki chat for Rs. 30. Both were too good. I love eating dahi wale gol gappe. Personal favorite.
