From upmarket, restaurant style to downright, around the corner of the street, Pani Puri, Gol Gappa or Puchhka is popular in Vizag. College girls to young boys, uncles, and aunties and macho bikers, all love it. So where does Vizag eat Pani Puri? Here are 4 of the many famous Gol Gappa spots in the city.
#1 Upmarket – Laddu Gopal (Siripuram)
High on taste and hygiene with no worries of achy tummies, Laddu Gopal makes the closest to a North Indian gol gappa you can get here. You might have to wait for your turn but look at the bright side – yummy, heavenly, tummy filling and right in the middle of a busy street.
#2 Street stop – Raja ka Gol Gappa (Next to old Fresh Choice bakery on the pavement)
Hailing from Allahabad, Raja and his brothers in arms make the meanest and most lip-smacking, tongue clicking puchkka here. Head her for tummy bursting delight in just 40 bucks for 16 gol gappas. And no cheating, they are fat and filled. If you are here taste their Aloo Dum, Churmur, Bhelpuri etc etc.
Find him a.s.a.p.
#3 Upmarket – Sweet India (Opposite Daspalla tycoon)
The original stop for savouries and North Indian goodies, we have been hogging pani puris here since ages. Have we had our fill? No!! do try the additional sweet chutney for a sweet burst between savoury and tangy bites.
Street stop – Dotting the city side across Kirlampudi Layout, MVP Colony, Beach road and Siripuram, the tiny establishments with just the pani puri on the stand or a small bandi are the best for what is street food unless it’s a little mass 😉
