The Mini Red Bus
By Navani Satija, Delhi Food Walks
Gone are those times of hailing the modern chefs for their haute cuisine. Gone are those days of relishing the lavish gourmet treat in such fine ambience. It may seem bizarre but the “in-thing” these days is the scrumptious, freshly prepared street food. And this mini red bus situated amidst the hustle-bustle of Balco market, patpurgunj (east delhi), also known as ‘Susaki’s Food’, is clearly one of the best street food eat-outs. Be it the lip-smacking Susaki special chilli chicken or the delectable Talumein soup, Susaki proves to be the haven for all Chinese cuisine aficionados, at all times and in all moods.
When asked about how Susaki came into the real picture, it’s owner Mr. Rajesh Sharma (a very jolly chap, indeed!) proudly says that it was set up in 1996 by Late Mr. Surender Chowdhary (Rajesh’s uncle) and it has been at the same spot ever since its establishment.
They take pride in their Susaki’s special chilli chicken, Susaki’s special fried rice, Talumein soup and American chopsuey all freshly prepared, luscious and rich in a number of condiments.
Being one of the very few such joints in patpurgunj approved by the MCD, Susaki offers free home delivery and caters to various tastes and preferences. With their ‘very reasonable’ prices, daily eaters describe it as a perfect place for an evening buddy hangout or for a quick snack when you’re in a hurry.
So, if you’re a Chinese cuisine lover and wish to have a not so expensive hearty meal, then this is perfectly the place you should head for.
