O Bhaiya – The Chit Chaat! — Reviewed!

O Bhaiya – The title we mostly relate to the pani-puri guy! But here, O Bhaiya is a fantastic concept of serving authentic Delhi-styled chaats all at one place. There are two outlets – FC Road and Kothrud. We happened to visit the Kothrud one, which is located in the Karishma Chowk near Krustys. Parking is across the road. O Bhaiya has a decent seating capacity of 30-35 people. It is a self-service place. Staff is kind and proactive.

The vegetarian-only place serves some amazing cold chaats, hot chaats, paranthas, chillas, munchies and street style desserts. A couple of popular dishes are Raj Kachori, Dahi Bhalle, Pani Puri, Chole Bhature, and Gulabjamun.

We tried the following.....
  • Raj Kachori Chaat (4.5/5)
  • Karari Aloo Chaat (3.5/5)
  • Sev Puri (4.5/5)
  • Jodhpuri Pyaz Kachori (2.5/5)
  • Gini Chilla (4/5)
  • Bhaiyaji Special Parantha (4/5)
  • Jalebi (4/5)
  • Chikkoo Ice-cream (4/5)
  • Kesar Pista Ice-cream (3.5/5)

Started our lunch meal with the scrumptious and popular tangy, zingy Raj Kachori Chaat. Crispy hollow kachori is filled with luscious, tender Dahi bhalla, sprouts, chutney, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, and loaded with sev. Priced at Rs.100; this is worth trying. Everything was well balanced. Highly Recommended!

Next was the Bhaiya's Special Karari Aloo Chaat (Rs.110). The search for good karari Aloo Chaat continues. I wish the tikki was crispier, warm and had the "special" taste to it. The toppings, chutney, and sev were good though.

Was tempted to try the simple and delicious Mumbai street food – Sev Puri. Tiny flattened puris were generously topped with an assortment of chutneys, tomatoes, onions and sev. It is simply irresistible. I just loved it. Can be finished in one go! Must try!

I was too excited to see Jodhpuri Pyaz Kachori (Rs.70) on the menu. Visualizing it the way it is served in Jodhpur, was awaiting my serving. Got flabbergasted by the presentation as the kachori was in bits and pieces and was served the same way as other chaats i.e topped with onions, tomatoes and sev! Also, the kachori didn't have the taste of onion at all. Bit disappointed with the flavours.

Gini Chilla (Rs.160) in Pune was new to me. Healthy, delicious, cheesy chilla cooked in butter is filled with masala (onion and tomatoes in this case) and generously garnished with cheese. Loved the taste. Would have admired if the filling was experimented with. Overall, a treat!

From the food we also tried the Bhaiyaji's Special Parantha (Rs.150) which had a medley of paneer, aloo, gobhi, mutter and cheese. Served with curd and pickle, the portion is good enough for a person with medium appetite. Sad part, the one served to us had salt on the higher side but happens some times; no complaints. Loved it. Must try!

Ended on a sweet note with crispy, warm jalebis and Chikoo Kulfi. O Bhaiya serves some amazing range of kulfis priced at Rs.50. 

Overall, we had a really good experience. Wish to visit them soon.
