GupShup, Indira Nagar – Bangalore

This one calls itself the home for all kind of Bengali snacks. The place serves the usual raj kachori, tikki, papari chaat and also the very famous kolkata style chicken rolls. This place is located on 12th Main on top of the the bengali fine dining place, 6 Ballygunge Place, and something tells me that its owned by the same person.

On to the food, we ordered a plate of papari chaat, a plate of tikki chaat and chicken rolls. Yes, we were hungry and this was to be our dinner !

The food was passable enough that I won’t be coming here again. Come to think of it, how many places in Bangalore have I ticked off the list till now ! Well … both the chats basically had the same ingredients, which were the usual haldiraam daal namkeen, a little tamarind sauce and a little curd. In fact, the tikki chaat didn’t even have the tamarind curd in it. So, do you blame me for not recommending this place, not for the chaat atleast !

Now I’m a huge chicken rolls fan and the chef ( ! ) really could have redeemed himself if he had made those any better than the ones I’ve had in other parts of the city. But no. The parantha for the rolls was soft and not crispy enough and the chicken filling was quite tasteless. It really could do with a little sauce in it.

My verdict, don’t go there ! There are better places for chicken rolls in the city and as for chaat, forget it, Bangalore is not the place for it !
