What to Expect

A staple in the North Campus food trail connoisseur’s arsenal, Shagun Golden Chinese Express (originally a China Bowl franchise), offers pan-Asian comfort food to buoy up the weariest of souls. PSA – Granted its rechristening appears suspect, and aspect slightly foreboding, but bear in mind that’s part of it allure – it has an old world sort of charm, which means dim lighting, minimal décor – it has neither the patience nor the store space for ostentation – no muss no fuss, just good old Chinese food.

What to eat

The Yaki Gyoza, Shagun’s famed pan fried momo, served with a fiery sauce on the side; order it, eat it, let it set the bar way up. Then there’s the staples, the Crispy Chicken Honey Chili, and its vegetarian variant/alternative, the Honey Chili Potato, or the Chili Paneer. Another favourite that regular patrons swear by is their Thai Red Curry; order one of their very dependable sides to go with it, the rice or the noodles – a combination that has been known to tide the average student over till the end of semester kitchen drought that are final exams. While its contemporaries offer a more varied drinks menu, Shagun sticks to the absolute basics – lime sodas, lemonade and aerated drinks. There is, however, a legion of students who swear by the restorative powers of their Jasmine Tea after a long day of classes.

And might I seal the deal – yes, they deliver.  North campus, knock yourself out.
