Ghaangothree, House of Chaats & Shakes
This place (5 Hindoo Road, 6296-6939) allegedly specializes in chaat, as evidenced by their very long chaat menu. So I came down and tried to get a good spread and see how it stood up to Raj. Unfortunately, I think I like Raj better. While selected items like the dahi pappadi chaat were pretty tasty, the pani puri lacked spiciness. The pau bhaaji had a great buttery aroma from the bread, but Raj's had much more taste. I also got an aloo tikki chaat, which finally did have a good spicy kick to it, but still didn't really excite me.
There were a few interesting things here though, including their ghaanghothree special lime, which was a saffron-flavored lime juice. Oddly enough, they also featured "Indian Chinese Cuisine," with things like "American Chop Suey" on the menu. I obviously didn't go there though. Well, this place definitely wasn't bad, but my vote is still for Raj.
