    Guys, Board The Metro Right Now And Get Down At Vijaynagar To Check Out Its Street Food Scene

    Sreepathy posted on 02 January

    Vijayanagar is a gem that we recently discovered thanks to one devoted LBB Crew Member, who also happens to have a weakness for street food. Curious as ever, we boarded the Metro and got down at the Vijayanagar Metro Station. The street food scene in question is just a hop, skip, and jump from the station and there’s no way you can miss it. Just look or ask anyone for Vijayanagar Water Tank and they’ll guide you home. A home that boasts of street food such as manchurian {six types, no less}, floating pani puri, and Chindian goodness. We ate our way through the lane and here’s our pick of the lot.

    Paddu Centre

    You need to start your binge eating at this cart which dishes out fluffy paddus {or paniyarams}. Half a dozen costs INR 20, while a full plate costs you a mere INR 30. Served with white and red chutney, the mantra you need to follow is dip, eat, repeat. If you like spicy food, then don’t even bother asking for the white chutney. Instead, load up on the red chilli chutney which the owner gives away generously. If you are planning on getting them packed, it’s additional INR 5 per plate. They have puliogare rice and lemon rice as well.

    Spurthy Gobi Centre

    To us, this is the lane’s star attraction. They have six kinds of Manchurian — gobi, potato, spinach, paneer, baby corn, and mushroom. Go for either a half plate or full plate, in any case, you are going to love the spicy kick the Chindian dish has. Don’t worry, they can tone down the spice level too. They have six kinds of fried rice too. But more on that here. Prices start at just INR 20 for a plate of Manchurian, and rice is INR 70. But do ask for half plates, which come at a lesser cost so you don’t fill up in one shot.

    Annapoorneshwari Bajji Centre

    What’s a street food lane without bajjis of all kinds, right? Bonda, chilli bajjis, vadas, and raw banana bajjis are what you get here in abundance. Priced at INR 5 a pop, order a mixed plate for INR 20 and have your cholesterol level spiking. Hey, at least if you collapse, you’ll be super happy! They also dish out poori-sagu as well, in case you are looking for a quick dinner option. It’s priced at INR 30 a plate and you get two oily puris with unlimited sagu {yass!}.

    Bangarpette Chats Corner

    South Indian chaat corner to be more precise. Sev puri, masala puri, bhel puri, and pani puri all make it to the menu, but it’s the floating pani puri that has caught our fancy. And the white pani. Oh yes, that’s quite interesting to see the pani that’s as plain as water but it packs quite a punch. Anyway, about the floating pani puri, it’s as the name sounds. Puris loaded with masala, boondi, and sev basically float in a copious amount of pani. Hello, Insta-worthy street food. A plate costs INR 30, while chaats are between INR 20 and INR 40.

    New Bombay Butter Dosa Camp

    The owner seems to have taken to Szechuan sauce as you will see at least 10 kinds of Szechuan-laden dosas. Our pick of the menu is Szechuan Mysore Masala Dosa that’s heavily buttered and cheesed {oh yes, the double whammy} to give you a foodgasm. Our dosa with butter and cheese is priced at INR 50 while the ‘butter only’ variant is at INR 40. If you want butter and paneer it’s INR 50. Our other Szechuan picks off the menu are Szechuan Tomato Sada Dosa and Szechuan Sweet Corn Dosa. The dosas are priced between INR 20 and INR 60, with the Szechuan Mushroom Dosa with Butter & Paneer and Palak Mushroom Dosa with Butter & Cheese costing INR 60.

    Jalebi And Dabeli Bhai

    No, that’s not his name, but his cart didn’t have a name either, hence our functional Christening. Wrapping up your street food scene on a sugar high comes highly recommended at this cart that serves piping hot jalebis for INR 10 per 100 grams. If you’re too full, you can even parcel them for the journey home. In fact, this seems a norm, and us noobs saw scores of people taking home this sugary goodness, while we sat stuffing out faces for about 15 minutes, not knowing about takeaway. Oh, lest we forget, they also serve samosas, kachoris, pav bhaji, and buttery dabelis. You really need to try the dabelis at INR 15 a pop.
