The Ultimate Street Food Bucket List For Every Chennaite. How Many Have You Done?
If you thought Chennai was all about just the classic idli, dosa and vada, then hold on. The city is bustling with more than just one street food corner and we just put down the best for you. At LBB, we love our street food and have covered it extensively here, here, here and here. From Chettinad style pastas to cheesy chaat and ridiculously good chilli idlis, here is where you must head to in Chennai for your fix of street food.
Super popular among college goers, this chaat corner in Nungambakkam serves pani puri at its best. Their pani puri is spicy and their masalas remind us of those from Juhu Chowpatty and Hyderabad gup chups (golgappas). Apart from the many kinds of chaat like bhel puri and dahi papdi, a must try is their Paan Kulfi.
