Indian Street Food

Nukkad’ (nook-urr) is a Hindi term for a tucked-away street corner. In India, these Nukkads are where the most delightful, authentic flavors of South Asia can be found. Whether it be a freshly-prepared plate of chole bhature, a crispy bite of dahi puri, or a sizzling cup of masala chai, Indian street food covers an array of tastes that are sure to enchant your senses. Our aim is to replicate this same magic at our cozy neighborhood cafe!

Vada Pav

The Specialty Of The house

one of the spicier street foods on our list, vada pav is a piece of deep-fried, carb-laden, vegetarian-friendly heaven.  The dish consists of a potato patty rolled in garbanzo bean flour, then deep-fried, and sandwiched in between two bread buns which is then served alongside one or two chutneys or sauces.

Papri Chaat

The Specialty of The House

Although this kind of Indian street food is most commonly found in North India and Pakistan, chaat is also a generic term for South Asian street food in general.

The dish consists of papri (thin pieces of fried dough) which are layered between boiled chickpeas, boiled potatoes, occasionally bean sprouts and a seasoned yogurt sauce. Depending on the type of chaat, other components can be added in such as aloo tikki and samosa. The dish is then garnished with tamarind chutney and sev.
