J.B Kachori wala (Jung Bahadur Kachori wala) in Chandni Chowk is famous for its spicy ‘Kachoris’ at a very decent price. Established in 1971, the legendary eatery is more than 3 decades old. J.B Kachori wala has continued to maintain the taste and has successfully attracted customers and fans not just from India but from across the world.
They serve ‘urad dal ki kachori’ with ‘kachalu ki chatni’ and this mysterious ‘chatni’ is what makes this place special and stand out from rest of ‘kachori’ sellers in Chandni Chowk and anywhere else. J.B Kachori wala or Jung Bahadur Kachori wala was awarded as the best street food of Delhi by Hindustan Times in 2009 and the awards this tiny eatery has received just do not stop at that.
Don’t expect to get a place to sit as they don’t have any arrangements for that. Their ‘kachoris’ are best enjoyed consumed standing. The spicey ‘chatni’ will anyways not let you stay still. An ever-crowded ambiance and superhuman speed servicing is what this corner always promises on the weekends. The weekdays can be a respite from the crowd although the taste will continue to remain supreme.
Cost: Rs.30/plate and Rs.20 for Half plate
Here the ‘kachodis’ cost Rs.20 for half a single piece and a plate that has two ‘kachoris’ will cost you a healthy 35 bucks.
