R. D. Dabeli - Revisiting the Green St chaat/snack scene

JFores | Feb 8, 2013 06:03 AM

I posted about the immense number of excellent South Asian snack places within my local area a few months ago. Unfortunately since that post was written I lost a really good Gujarati snack shop in Fashion Plaza, Khana Khazana has changed considerably, the only decent samosa chaat place went under, and so on. Thankfully R.D. Dabeli survived this period, though that probably happened more due to its wildy popular "puff" rather than its namesake dabeli.

My favorite items here are the dabeli, vada pav and pani puri. The bhel is very hit and miss due to the occasionally stale ingredients and the puff are alright, but I don't 100% see the appeal. This place moved from a tiny stall in an indoor mall to its new location on Plashet Road and they seem to keep upping their game.

The pani puri are very good, the dabeli paste now has pomegranate seeds interspersed within it and so on. It keeps getting better and though they don't need anymore business I thought they could use some credit on here. The last post on them never really took off.
