"Hamesha kuch badha karne ki chaah hain, mann main." (There is always a need to do something big.) says the vendor, Vinod Kumar as he picks up the conversation with me. I ask him how the outlet happen, and he says it was all the love of food that brought the three youngsters from Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh in the year 2010. With another chain in Koramangala, they were inspired by the street food of Calcutta and other places, and learnt more about it and set the outlet five years ago. 'Alu Tikki aur Vada Pav!', comes the spontaneous response when asked about their fastest selling item(s). While there isn't a slightest regret on their faces due to the no-holiday policy, they are happy that all kinds of people satisfy their hunger at their outlet. The sight of hearty conversations and laughter makes it a happy day for them, says one of the three vendors, Rajesh Kumar. What is the the most challenging thing, I ask. 'Language', he says. Although most of the customers are Hindi speaking, or ones who understand Hindi, it gets difficult sometimes, to explain the dishes to non-Hindi Speakers. 'Abhi tak toh 15% sikhliya hain!' says Govinda, the third vendor, with a big smile on his face.
- The samosas sold here are said to be the biggest in size with an extra lot of stuffing compared to samosas sold elsewhere in the city. So once here, we'd suggest one to give it a try.
