Shiva Shankar Chaats A Gusty Nook for Tasty Bites

Shiva Shankar Chaats – 5th Main Road – Jayamahal Extension



Shiva Shankar Chaats is on the 5th Main Road and is actually dwarfed by other bakeries and restaurants on the very same road, but Shiva’s business is gusty! There is no other way of describing it. He is quick to serve his customers who stand around his shack, he has his minions rushing to parked cars too! The service is brisk. His shack looks better with every month that passes. It speaks for his entrepreneurial skills.

Chaats are the earliest of street foods in India. It is possibly the most favoured food of the country. One can find a Chaata-walah or Chaat-vendor at every street corner, and yet it is the most sort after food or snack in Bangalore. His menu is pasted at the side of his shack! The Paani-puri section is really crowded! The neighbourhood now has come to rely on his quick snacks!

A Good Variety
