Serving Up Some Classic Indian Sweets And Savouries, This Shop In Chetpet Has Been There Since 1987!
What Makes It Awesome
Is there any festival which has been completed without a packet of Mysore Pauk or Gulab Jamun? No. It would never be either. One of the oldest in the city, Shree Mithai was started four decades ago, in 1987 by K.N. Patel in Chetpet focussing on selling a variety of Indian sweets. Today it was grown with branches across the city serving up chaats, cookies, biscuits with even dining areas inside their stores! The Shree Mithai branch in Chetpet is the oldest in the city. With an elongated store with a spacious parking lot in the front, the store is brightly lit with white lights. Along the length of the store are glass cases which store all different kinds of sweets imaginable. Behind their glass cases, they have wooden shelves up on the wall which are stacked with homemade chips, biscuits and cookies. They have a seating area in the middle of the floor where you can lounge with your family and friends and enjoy a plate. Shree Mithai has a chaat corner which serves a variety of tangy delights. you can expect dahi papdi, samosa chaat, dahi poori, masala poori, chat katori, lacha tokri, kachori chaat, dahi vada and so much more. You can even indulge in some ghee laden savoury snacks like samosas, aloo bonda, mirchi vada, veg cutlet, khanvi roll, veg puff, paneer puff and pattices. We especially love their idli dhoklas which are served with green chutney and a sweet mix chutney! Coming to the star of the foods in Chree Mithai, the sweets are to die for. Made with pure ghee, they have sweets made up of almonds, milk, cashew, mixed dry fruits and a variety of halwa. A packet of ghee boondi laddu, cow milk pedas or kaju bdam katli is a perfect gift on festivals. they even have rasmalai and rasgullas to hog on. Their anjeer bati and anjeer pista roll is absolutely drool worthy. However, it is their traditional gajar ka halwa and Bombay halwa that steals our heart!
The chaat joint becomes super crowded from 4:30 to 6:30. They even have different types of baked buns and bread (sandwich loaf, multigrain loaf, french loaf, etc) that you can buy.
