Kanpur, renowned for its brilliant and varied gastronomic delights is the best place in India to sample multitude of chaats at reasonable prices. Eating chaat in Kanpur is a social ritual with a number of narrow lanes and even a whole street dedicated to this important tradition.
One can choose from the famous kurkuri tikki, aloo chaat and baigan chaat at Hanuman Chaat Bhandar, papdi, basket chaat, batashe, dahi vadas, gadbad chaat and others sold at street corners and the hugely popular eateries on Birhana Road with Ramswaroop Chaat leading the way.
Spicy, quirky, never seen before innovative chaats and flavoursome is what one will get in every bite. Seasonal vegetables and fruits make their way as garnish – mango, pomegranate, strawberry and sapota are some of the unique toppings offered by vendors.
The right way to enjoy and experience the true nature and fabric of this vibrant city is to indulge in its extraordinary offerings.
