We can’t deny that we love to spend most of our time eating lip smacking food. On other times, we’re just thinking about what to eat next. When it comes to breakfast, the first to begin the day, a hearty meal sounds just right. When it comes to the culinary scene in Chandigarh, there are numerous little eateries serving rustic yet absolutely delicious local food. Here you wouldn’t mind sitting at a roadside table to dig into butter dripping paranthas. Here’s a roundup to bring to you a list of lesser-known breakfast spots in Chandigarh.
- Sai Sweets
Location: 1102-03, Himalaya Marg, 22B, Sector 22, Chandigarh, 160022
Cost for two: INR 400
What’s Special: Almost everyone in Chandigarh is a devotee of authentic Punjabi chole bhature and appetizing samosa/kachori with chana. Suitable for a fulfilling breakfast meal, casual dining and home delivery options, Sai Sweets is also famous for its sweet items like kheer ka dum. One can always head there for quick bites, the most popular being bhalla papdi chaat, tikki chana and grilled sandwiches. The place has been there since many years and has been serving delicious North Indian cuisine at economic prices.
- Krishan Chaat Bhandar
Location: Booth No 120, S C F 39/2, Sector 18-D, Chandigarh, 160018
Cost for Two: INR 400
What’s Special: We love the taste of Amritsari Kulcha here. And not just one or two, Krishan Chaat Bhandar serves 17 different tandoori kulchas. Of course, as the name suggests Krishan Chaat Bhandar is famous for its sweet and spicy golgappas, and every known chaat papdi. The menu also consists of tender soya chaap and paneer tikkas. Lastly, the matka kulfi is just a soulful and joyful end to a delicious meal. If you are visiting here for the first time, it might get a little frustrating to wait for your turn. But as soon as you take your first bite and finish the lot, your desperation for the next line-up will just increase. The outside seating is mostly full during evenings.
- Brick Firewood Pizza
Location: Opposite Sukhmani College, Ambala road, Dera Bassi, Punjab, 140507
Cost for Two: INR 200
What’s Special: The place is ranked amongst some best pizza places in town. Perfectly baked crust with hot melted cheese erupting like lava just as you take a bite, but that’s not it. You know what the best part is? All these delighted dishes start from a base price of 100! If you visit here you’ll find people of Chandigarh worship the place because it is as crowded as a temple.
- Grand Punjab Restaurant
Location: SCO 95, Rajpura road, Near Mai Banno Mandir, Banur, Patiala, 140601
Cost for Two: INR 250 approximately
What’s Special: Almost everyone in Chandigarh is a devotee for the creamy lassi in the Grand Punjab Restaurant, Mohali. Lassi is prepared with a native hand, and the topping of pomegranate and pista is sprinkled upon it here. The drink is served in a big steel glass, with a spoon to sip the leftover cream at the bottom of it. The restaurant also has a special breakfast menu.
- Babaji Ke Paranthe
Location: Service Lane of Sector 16, Chandigarh
Cost for Two: INR 150
What’s Special: An omelette blended in a parantha is itself an art of this happy man. People are amazed more by the skill of this old man rather than its taste. Well, the taste is stunning as well.
