Eating corner is the most crowded Chaat joint that serves impeccable variety of food on the busiest street of Model Town for over 5 decades.
Not just favourite of people living in this area, but foodies from all the corners of Delhi love Eating corner for its yummy street food. Open on all the days of the week, it serves tempting pure vegetarian delicacies to its die heart lovers. You would love everything from Eating corner’s long menu list whether its chatpata Dahi Bhalla, crunchy Lachcha tokri, charcoaled Paneer Tikka, sizzling Aloo Tikki, buttery Pao Bhaji or Soya based items.
This time on my visit to Eating corner, locally known as Matroo ki Dukaan, I tried Soya chaap and hot and sizzling Aloo Tikki which is my personal favourite in this chilly winter. 2 portions of tikki is priced at Rs. 50 and is easily affordable by everyone. The chaat masala added to it, infuses a distinct taste along with the super spicy mint and tamarind chutney.
In special soya based menu, Pudina Soya Chaap is a show stealer. Soya is marinated with tangy mint sauce and kept overnight so that it fully absorbs all the flavours. Then the Soya is beautifully charcoaled and served fresh on the platter that consist of 10 pieces only for Rs 130. Apart from that, it also serves Masala Afghani, Stuffed Mashroom and Kathal soya chaaps. You can also enjoy the chaaps with Rumali Roti or get it stuffed into a crispy roll.
Eating corner is best known for its innovative creations. Pineapple Tikka and Nacho corn chaat are its latest additions. These new creations are a big hit because the people have always adored whatever item is served here ,as they are cooked to perfection and Eating corner has always maintained quality standards along with the twist of taste.
The fact that I appreciate the most about this joint is that all the dishes are prepared in olive oil and served in hygienic manner, one can notice clean plastic head covers and gloves in the hands of each and every worker.
However, it is bit hard to stand and enjoy your food as there is no seating arrangement; people usually sit outside the nearby shops. So, when you reach here, be prepared to face little difficulty in parking and seating arrangements.
Overall ,a great place to visit with family and friends.
