How to get there:

At Ramakrishna Ashram Metro station, ask for Imperial Cinema. Once u reach there, ask for the Sitaram Dewanchand. Advisable not to take ur car there due to severe parking issues. Park ur car in CP & take an auto or just take a metro & then walk.

Imperial Cinema - Without this as a landmark, u will keep searching all over Pahargunj

We were surprised to see a Queue as we entered the shop at around 9.00am on a sunday morning. As we waited, a tall, smooth worded guy actually pulled off a typical Dilli sifarish for jumping the queue – He spoke to someone on his mobile & actually handed over the phone to the shop owner & the Gentleman obliged!!!!!

Queue as u enter the shop

While we waited for our turn to get a bite, we caught a glimpse of bhature stored in a hot chamber in trays. Seeing that we realized that we r not getting freshly fried bhatures but ‘already made’ ones. Much later while we were walking out (post meal) we saw a fresh consignment of bhatures from the kitchen. Those looked round & puffed like it is in bikanervala or Om sweets. So we missed it by a margin of approx. 25 minutes. Better luck next time.

The Bhatures that we had were refried on tawa & served. So it is not swollen or puffed like we r used to see freshly fried bhatures. However, inspite of that, the taste of bhature was excellent on its own (without any accompaniment). There were lots of paneer strips & chopped coriander leaf inside the – super soft & much tastier than what it looked like. Wowwwwwwww was the taste. Inspite of being reheated & served, the bhature tasted better than even the freshly fried ones at Om sweets or Bikanervala.
