Owned by a good-humoured man, Raju Rajendran, this eating joint has been feeding hungry students in and around Vasanthnagar for over a decade now.

Raju, fondly called Raj by the student crowd, serves a variety of chaats, desserts and snacks to the hungry junta that pours into the place everyday. Located on the lane leading up to Mount Carmel College, RR’s is a hangout for students of not just MCC but Sophia High School, St Joseph’s College, Sri Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain College and Jyoti Nivas College as well. “Students come and eat here during college fests but keep coming back after that,” says Raju.

Innovation has been the plus point of RR’s. The place tries to add a little twist to mundane items to keep the young blood interested. And the friendly demeanour of Raju makes sure that anyone who comes in once would visit again. The food here is prepared everyday by Raju’s wife Mini who stocks up fresh food in the morning.

The shop has small poster, which says ‘Impossible to study on an empty stomach’ and the students seem to follow the rule as they line up to taste the Mexican chaat, which is a combination of Nachos, beans, crunchy onion, capsicum, cheese and a variety of masalas and herbs. It sure is a yummy delight.

The other chaats available at the place are Masala Puri, Dahi Puri, Dahi Puchka among others but it is the Mexican flavour which is a sure winner. You can also try your hand at the Deltazz, which is a delta-shaped pizza, that is made with the brown bread as the base.

“We also used to serve mini-pizzas but we didn’t want to serve the same things as others,” says Raju. Boats is another specialty of the house and is best in the non-veg flavour.

It is a pie kind of a preparation which is served with garlic bread. “I personally like the pasta, pizza and Mexican chaat in this place,” says Jyothi, a student who visits the shop almost everyday.

The Cake Fudge is another popular item on the menu and is a must try if you have a sweet tooth.

You can choose from a variety of flavours like Kala Jungle, Choco-truffle Fudge, Brownie Fudge or Chocovan Temptation. The other eatables available in the shop are pasta, cheese noodles, puffs, sandwiches, burgers, wraps and chicken sausage roll.

Don’t expect a place to sit at RR’s but when it comes to snazzy food, it is surely an experience in itself.
