For all those ‘Yaar, Aaj chaat khane chalte hain’ moments, this is where your feet should drag you. Bragged about by regulars as the ‘best gol gappe and pav bhaji you’ll taste’, this little quaint, sometimes overlooked joint has made quite a name for itself. The place is perfect for our ever-evolving ‘who can eat more gol gappe' contests, drag your friends over and let the hunger games begin!
Fingerlickerz is located on the ground floor of the market buildings. The big bright hoarding and lots of lights make sure you won’t miss it even during the nighttime.
The restaurant is in the premises of Sector 11 main market which is on the road at a prominent junction. The approach roads are nice and open. There are times when you will encounter traffic. Thankfully parking is not an issue here- it's free and adequate.
The restaurant is divided into two- the first kitchen which is inside the shop and a cash counter in the front, rest is outside and there are three counters. One serves chaat items, second faluda and third the Bombay items. Check the menu, pay at the counter to obtain the token and place your order at the concerned counter. Most of the items on the menu are on quick service time and take no time to arrive.
A couple of tables can be used to stand and enjoy your snacks. The management has kept the place neat and clean.
Let’s talk about the food I ordered, the menu consists of Pav Bhaji, Vada Pav, South Indian Food, Thali, Kulfi and Chaat items. The star attraction is the Pav Bhaji which many users of Zomato have rated highly. Another Bombay attraction is Vada Pav. There is a slight twist in the preparation of Pav, but the modification tastes good. They give two accompaniments and fried chilly. Both these food items taste delicious and most people order them when they visit this place. Preparation takes not much time. Most of the reviewers have complimented these two items as the original taste of Mumbai street food. The other two items from Mumbai is the pulav and dabeli.
Also, South Indian items are prepared in the kitchen inside. Plus, there are other meal options like kulcha and naan. There is a separate counter for chaat items. I tried Dahi Bhalla and it was scrumptiously delicious. We also tried Gol Gappa which also tasted good. Prices for all items are reasonable and portions are good. You can finish your mini-meal with kulfi.
The Pav Bhaji was classic and just the way everyone likes it, whereas the colourful Faluda Kulfi, with its fresh and sweet flavour with a smack of rose essence, made our tongues happy!
