Prabhu chaat wala at UPSC lane has been around for a very long time. Though we recently discovered this famous chaat wala, people from our parents generation know about it and the mere mention of Prabhu chaat wala is enough to make them nostalgic.
Just out of The Grub Fest, we were on our way to the Rashtriya Sanskriti Mahotsav and we happened to cross Khan Market, UPSC lane and stumbled upon this famous chaat stall. It’s a small stall with a handful of items on the menu. We tried their Gol Gappe, Aloo Tikki and Bhalla Papdi. Gol gappe were average. Bhalla Papdi was decent but Tikki was quite nice. Though we couldn’t find anything that we have not tasted before, we kinda liked most of it and could see that it had been famous way before the invasion of Bitto tikkiwalas and the likes.
We also tried their famous Falooda Kulfi. Sadly it tasted of burnt milk. We complained and the guy agreed that the milk got burned slightly in the morning. He gave us a replacement but this was also as bad as the first one. We wonder why did they not throw the milk and create a fresh batch of kulfi or simply drop kulfi that day. Why risk your reputation and serve kulfi that tastes of burnt milk? We couldn’t have this kulfi and left this famous street food stall – Prabhu Chaat Bhandar with a mixed feeling.
