Eating Corner

Eating Corner

By Simran Kaur Kainth

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.

JpegThis 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.

It has super spicy seasoning to it and explode like a bomb in the mouth.

In addition , Hot Pot is also famous for its spicy honey chilly potato, chicken hot and sour soup, egg fried rice, lemon chicken and drums of heaven.  Chilly Chicken , served with spicy diced veggies is another attraction of the place.

However, parking can be an issue to be dealt with. Despite of much crowd in the evening, the service is so quick that the moment you blow the horn of your car, the attendant rushes to the window to jot down your order. It also has home delivery to nearby areas with minimum order of Rs.250.

Nutkhut

By Simran Kaur

On recalling my childhood days and fondness towards spicy chaat and crispy golgappas ,Nutkhut is the first name that strikes my mind and makes me nostalgic.

Nutkhut Caterers is a small stall known for its golden hot tikki, sweet and sour Lachha tokri and charcoaled panir tikka , Nutkhut is one of the oldest and most loved chaat corner in the Gujrawala town. Most interestingly, it was the first street joint in North Delhi to serve pani puri made from mineral water. Its crispy aloo chaat and bhalla papdi too has some charismatic power in it that attracts foodies like magnets. Adjoined by various other small street food joints serving different cuisines, Nutkhut enjoys its reputation and popularity amongst food enthusiasts  who gather at the stall every evening.

unnamedThis time on my visit to Nutkhut, I decided to go for something different so I tried marinade soya chaap roll, served with lemon and onion along with green chutney. It was superbly delicious , full of spices and exploded like a bomb in my mouth. Fairly priced at Rs 160 , the serving was so generous that two eagerly starving people can easily be fed . With its promising quality of food, Nutkhut chat corner has proved that it is not just limited to “chaat” but also stands excellent in its soya dishes.

Nutkhut also has another branch in Model town and a catering outlet named Nutkhut Rasoi near Gola Northend that serves delicious Indian cuisines and is best for home delivery. Its Special paneer thali is favourite amongst people.

So, next time you visit Gujrawala town, don’t forget to take a hault at Nutkhut chaat corner .
