Delhi people and their chole bhature are inseparable. To put it differently, it’s the city’s proper Sunday brunch. For me, chole bhature is an emotion; they are my comfort food; I can eat them anytime, anywhere.
While wandering on the streets of Connaught Place, you can always stop by to eat the lip-smacking chole bhature of Bhoghal's. It is one of the oldest gems of eatery in Delhi. It’s a true gem in all true sense. Bhogal’s are serving chole bhature from generations. The owner of this shop, the late Mr Ram Bharose, aka Lala Bhogal opened it during the 1950s. According to the shop’s legal papers, the shop is from 1962, but apparently, it was there before these years.
While conversing with the owner, he told me that his father left the world when he was just 14 years old with his other two younger brothers. Since the beginning, Mr Sunil Kumar has been taking care of it along with his brothers. The small-scale business started by their father has made its name into the best chole bhature eateries of all time.
