Drop Everything And Go Eat Pani Puri At This Popular Chaat Stall In Nungambakkam

This roadside chaat stall on Nungambakkam High Road has built a name for itself, thanks to its super budget chaat menu and in particular its pani puri.

Chaat Please

Nungambakkam Chaat Corner is an eatery that has customers coming in from when it opens to when it shuts. Situated on an arterial road in the city’s college belt, it is easily accessible from Loyola, WCC and Stella and draws large crowds from them and surrounding neighbourhoods. Known around Chennai for its pani puri, we decided to try it out. The stall is at the entrance to a clothing store and there isn’t too much place to stand when it’s crowded and you’ll have to find parking in a lane nearby if you’re going to bring a car.

Their most popular dishes are the pani puri, aloo tiki, badam kulfi and dahi papadi chaat.  INR 35 gets you a plate of six pani puris, of which the sixth is a masala pani puri. They’re unlike any other pani puri you’ve had in Chennai, the pani is a little spicy and the masala packs a punch and when they come together it’s amazing. While the pani puri is known as the star, we enjoyed their aloo tiki {with the chutney, is omg!} and badam kulfi  a lot more. The badam kulfi tends to go down quick thanks to the spice from the chaat before it and we loved that.

Bill Please

The reason why Nungambakkam Chaat Corner is as popular as it is, is because it serves great chaat at a price point much lower than it’s bigger competitors like Gangotree. In fact the most expensive item on the list, a plate of stuffed aloo parathas, is just INR 80. However in order to keep overheads low, they’ve had to skimp on a few amenities. For example, there isn’t any place to wash your hand, and the menu doesn’t have too much variety. The tradeoff is clear and we’re happy to see places like this flourish. In case you were wondering, yes they’re on Swiggy and there’s even a 30 per cent discount if you use the code “HAPPY30”. Talk about value for money!
