Gangotree - Church Street, Bangalore
5 of us visited Gangotree on Church street today.
Tahir and I had been there earlier and tried out the Rasgulla chaat, which was quite good. We took some other guys there today to try more dishes.
Now Bangalore isn't known for good chaat, so when one finds a good chaat place, one must put it to the test.
Our aim was to try out the Jalebi chaat, that they serve only on Saturdays and Sundays, however they were out of it, as were they of Chinese golgappas. We decided to try out many other dishes.
Rasgolla chaat, papdi chaat, bread chaat, chola batura (why?), chinese bhel, aloo tiki chaat and finally, our own invention, laddu chaat.
The chinese bhel was absolutely amazing. The aloo tiki chaat (raghda pattice) totally sucked. The laddu chaat wasn't too bad, though since the laddu doesn't absorb liquid like the rasgolla does, it didn't work out quite right.
They have okay pani puri. I still prefer Karachi Sweets.
Blues rates it:
Food - Chaaty
Service - Not bad, the boy is easily confused though
Price - Ok, a tad high
Decor - Nothing
Overall - Good snack place
Recommendation - Go there for the chaat, on a weekend, you might also find some interesting social activity around the place.
Go down Brigade Road from the MG Road side, and take the first right onto Church Street. Keep on till you get to Barton Centre. It's right after that.
