Say Hi To Epic Street Food (& Bye-Bye To That Diet) At These 7 Places In Gurgaon
Sadar Bazaar has quite a few hidden gems one should explore, most of which are food joints. Three generations of Gurgaon peeps have been served by some of best of them who have stood the test of time.
Make a trip to Sadar Bazaar right away to satisfy those street food pangs.
Kishu Di Hatti (KDH)
This joint started with samosas and tikkis over 61 years ago, and is known for its dhodha barfi. It’s situated slightly outside the main bazaar, so if you get lost just ask around for KDH opposite the sub-post office in the new colony.
Arjan Singh & Sons (Sardar Jalebi Wala)
How to spot it: an impatient crowd, a Sikh man at the counter, and the irresistible smell of fresh jalebis.
Having operated out of the same shop for the last 68 years, they’ve sort of made a name for themselves. Some of their employees have worked here for over 40 years, so you can be sure that the jalebi will not disappoint.
#LBBTip: If you’re fond of jalebis, just let them know and they’ll make a fresh batch for you in five minutes.
Pandit Ji Ka Dhaba
If you’re on the lookout for (vegetarian) home-cooked food made in pure (they’re super proud of it) desi ghee, Pandit Ji Ka Dhaba is the place to be. Their specialty is Chulhe Ki Roti – a thali with sabji, dal, and two rotis that will cost you next to nothing.
In the midst of a very busy, chaat-filled Sadar, this dhaba is an oasis of simple soul food.
Gandhiji Pakode Wala
A family business in its third generation, this pakora shop is one to impress. They serve piping hot chai and pakoras all day, in addition to biskut, rusk, kachoris, samosas, and chow mein. If you’re in the mood to experiment, try their kamal kakdi (lotus stem) pakoras, mushroom pakoras, and, our personal favourite, soya chaap pakora. And they accept Paytm, too.
BalJee Restaurant (Chhole Bhature Wala)
Nagpal Corner, you’ve got competition. For the best chole bhature this side of town, head to Bal Jee and enjoy a hearty meal at INR 65/plate. They now also serve chaat, sweets, and lassi.
For all you South Indian food lovers out there, Annapurna is here to fulfill your needs. Head to the Bhandar for a variety of dosas, idlis, vadas, and, of course, chowmein. Finish off your meal at Annapurna with a round of coffee; beaten, not filtered.
Suffering from a cash crunch? No worries, you can use your card for purchases above INR 150 at Rewari.
Although they’re known for their sweets, Rewari also sells chaat and savoury snacks in their restaurant. The best sellers at this sweet shop are khoya barfi and samosas.
