1. Chole Bhature @ Chache Di Hatti

This place has been around for AGES, and for many of us Dilli Wallas, Chache Di Hatti serves not just the tastiest Chole Bhature but also a generous dose of nostalgia. They taste the same always - fluffy bhaturas, soft and extremely yummy chole served with onions and chutney. If you’re a college student with too much enthusiasm and a tight wallet, or are just a fan of this scrumptious Indian delicacy, you must head here. But hey, be an early bird because these babies sell out real quick!

Price | Rs 50

2. Double Egg Roll @ Chowringhee Lane

Tucked in a narrow back alley of Bungalow Road lies this hidden gem serving up some of the city's best rolls, and no we’re not saying this just for the sake of it. Their Double Egg Roll is a favourite among regulars at this joint and why wouldn't it be?! The fluffy omelette roll filled with noodles, veggies and a special sauce mix is exactly what heaven must taste like. There are a lot of soda shops and thelas nearby, so you can buy a lemon soda to pair with your roll. Awesome, right?!

Price | Rs 40

3. Chicken Shawarma @ Shawarma Wala

Don’t go by the simple name of this joint because it's not just ANY shawarma wala we’re talking about. There’ll be very few North Campus students who do not know about this place but to most other people this place doesn't really ring a bell. Tucked in the same lane as Chowringhee, this joint serves mouth watering Chicken Shawarma for just Rs 50 a plate. It comes with a mint sauce and mayo and the taste is just scrumptious!

Price | Rs 60

4. Chaat @ This Nameless Stall Between Kohlapur Road & Bungalow Road

Now we know this isn't very specific, but that’s just what it is! It's a legit ‘chaat street’ located between Bungalow Road and Kohlapur Road on the bada gol chakkar in KNags. You can enjoy a wide range of delicious items here for a lot less than 100 bucks. There are around 8-10 vendors serving pav bhaji, gol gappas and chaat, kanji vada, bread pakoras, moong daal laddoos, paneer tikka, soya chaap and what not! To top it all, there’s also a banta seller and chuski wala here too. What else could you possibly ask for?!

Price | Rs 20 (Gol Gappas) & Rs 50 (Pav Bhaji)

5. Idli Sambhar @ Chennai Hot Cafe

Are you a fan of piping hot sambhar and dosa or idli or vada and uttapam too? Then this is the place you should be heading to without a doubt. It's located in a tiny lane behind the Madame store in Kamla Nagar and is surrounded by houses (really!). But, the food served here is just amazing. The sambhar is perfectly spicy and sour, the idlis fluffy and the dosas crisp. And honestly, for the price that they charge for their food, it's a total steal deal!

Price | Rs 70

6. Chhole Kulche @ The Stall Near Dimpoos Cosmetics

We know you must have had this spicy, quick snack dozens of times, but the ones sold at this stall on bada gol chakkar are another level altogether. Apart from being super yummy, they prove to be a respite from the hunger pangs people get while shopping at Kamla Nagar. And priced at Rs 30 a plate, these Chole Kulche do not even burn a hole in your pocket. Although you can customise the chole according to your taste, they tend to be a little on the spicy side, so there - you’ve been warned!

Price | Rs 30

7. Chaat @ Vaishnav Chaat Bhandar

This Is A Representative Image

True to its name, this place is actually a whole ‘bhandar’ serving delicious street food. This place is heaven for all the spicy food lovers out there. They have Gol Gappas, Chaat, Pav Bhaji, Kathi Kebabs, Aloo Chaat and what not. Just a heads up though - this joint gets pretty crowded during weekends, especially at night. Also, finding parking in that narrow lane can be a pain, but trust us, the food is SO worth it!

Price | Rs 60 Each For Paneer Chilla & Aloo Tikki

8. Momos @ The Stall On Bungalow Road (Next To The Apple store)

Ever experienced what indulgence tastes like? Well, it tastes like this - a tiny plate of momos, filled with lip smacking fillings like veggies, paneer and chicken, steamed to perfection and served piping hot with a generous amount of spicy hot momos chutney and a dollop of mayonnaise. Just reading this has you drooling, right? Well, then you have to taste these and then you’ll know exactly why we love them so much. Also, keep your bottle of water handy when having ‘em because the chutney served with them is devilishly spicy!

Price | Rs 40 (Veg) & Rs 50 (Chicken)

9. Burgers @ The Mini Shop

Many stores around this tiny hole-in-the-wall sized shop have opened and shut down with time, but Mini Shop stay put. And it's not just any other snack shop in a busy market place, this shop is legendary! It’s been around for longer than we can imagine, serving stuffed kulchas, patties, cutlets, soft drinks and other handy snacks. 

The taste has evolved over time and become better, and so Mini Shop is still a favourite among college goers and shoppers buzzing around Kamla Nagar yearning for a quick snack. It's located right at the beginning of Bungalow Road and hence very easy to spot, so you must drop by whenever in KNags!

Price | Rs 50 Onwards
