Street Food of Ahmedabad

Manek Chowk:

Place is near Lal Darwaja and best mode of conveyance to reach this place is Auto Rickshaw.

Known for vegetarian street food.

The hustle bustle starts at about 8 PM when usual shops call it a day and the street food vendors start operations on road side. The food frenzy goes on till late night past 1 AM.

Typical items you get there are

Gujrati Farsan (snacks) as well as popular pan western India snacks.

gathiya, Fafda, Papdi, mung vada, mix dal vada, patti samosa etc served on piece of newspaper with complimentary chill chutney (not very hot but with sweet touch).

You will also get hand made ice cream (closer to Kulfi but better), Rabdi etc

Other western Indian polular snacks like Pav Bhaji, Pulav, pani-puri, sev-puri, chat, ragda-petis etc.

I saw some vendors selling Indian chinese, chole-bhature and parathasa as well.

Important characteristics of majority of the vendors what I saw and was very different from other parts of India was focus on your satisfaction.

The guy in the brown shirt who had vada and samosa stall refused to serve me cold stuff which was there on the serving plate. I asked him to do so but he asked me to wait 5 minutes instead so that he can serve freshly fried hot stuff!!!

 

Bhatiyar Galli:

Place is near Lal Darwaja and best mode of conveyance to reach this place is Auto Rickshaw.

Known for non vegetarian street food.

Sorry no pictures but I could only eat a few chicken preparations but later moved on considering compromised hygiene levels. No stomach upset later though!

You need to be little tolerant from hygiene point of view.
Go around and check it out … if you can manage!
