Meals between maddening rush

In the hustle-bustle of admission in Delhi University, students, especially those who are food lovers will certainly look for some popular food joints in the campus.

Definitely, many must be hunting for places that define food culture in the University. Here is a small tip: Look up those places which have catered to several batches with their mind-blowing and stunning variety of food. Metrolife takes all you food enthusiast on a journey to those street food stalls and popular food joints.

To start with, don’t even think of missing out on Chacha Di Hatti that serves the best Chhole bhature in the campus. Situated in Kamla Nagar Market, just behind Kirori Mal College, the shop can be asked for by name. Long queues outside are a perennial feature and the shop normally empties out its stock for the day by noon. Foodies who adore chhole bhature swear by this hole-in-the-wall shop and are ready to wait patiently for as much as half hour to satisfy their palate. Served hot and spicy, the chhole here have a very distinctive taste because of the secret spices added to the gravy. Even the stuffed aloo bhaturas are different from what you might have tasted in other places. There is also the option of a plain bhatura but trust us, the aloo ones are so much better. One plate can cost you Rs 20-30 depending on the selection of bhatura.

A short five-minute walk away from Chacha Di Hatti is Vaishnav Chaat Bhandar. The great thing about this place is that it serves you authentic UP-style chaat –sweet and tangy, but not overly spiced. You get all kinds of chaat here – from golgappas to papri, tikki aloo, aloo chaat to chillas and pav bhaji. You can choose between matka kulfi or kulfi falooda.

Near to Vaishnav is another chaatwallah, Bittu Tikki Wallah aka BTW. This is your one-stop joint for scrumptious snacks. Try their deep fried tikkis served with curd and two kinds (mint and sweet) of chutney. The eatery is also famous for rasmalai, kulfi and bhalla papdi and is open every day from noon to 10 pm.

If you want to have absolutely delicious  , then all you need is visit the Patel Chest bus stop, the place where practically all the University Specials start from. The old man near the bus stop whips up the most delicious bhelpuri. He even customises the bhel to your taste. This two-decades-old joint, which opens at noon, is a favourite with students of Miranda House, St Stephen’s College, SRCC and Hansraj.

Not far behind is the rather popular Tom Uncle Maggie outside Miranda House. By adding extra spices and veggies to the maggie, the joint has always been hot favourite with students.
