Chella's Vegetarian Corner, Serangoon Road
Wow - I'm really having trouble breaking free of this Indian food streak; I just can't stop thinking of chaat. Well, to satiate the cravings today, I told the cab driver to take me to Little India and stop randomly, where I figured that I would just walk into one of the first places that I saw. That strategy brought me here (70 Serangoon Road, 6297-6297), another surprisingly well-lit fast-food type of place, but with a more dedicated dining area upstairs.
They had a number of interesting items on the menu, ranging from the so-called "Special Jain Pav Baji" (what is that?) and even a Hershey's Chocolate Dosa. But the thing that caught my eye was the Cheese Pav Baji, which was basically pav baji but with some shredded cheese on top. With its light fluffy bread and spicy aroma, this thing went down in the blink of an eye.
And yes, I know I overdo it on the pani puri, but I just love this stuff, and this one fared fine too. I'd definitely like to come back and try more. Interestingly, they even had some kind of sizzling platters here. It didn't seem very Indian to me, but it sure smelled good.
