Odeon Gupta: The Insta worthy Paan shop at CP

Delhi: Odeon Gupta paan is located in the centre of Delhi, Connaught Place. Connaught Place is mainly known for its wide variety of cafes and shopping but also, paan. Paan is an inseparable piece of Indian Culture. In India, biting paan isn't just a practice, part of Indian friendship with these goes back to 5000 years ago. In  India, some consider eating paan ‘Shaan' or pride and it is presented after lunch or supper. Today paan has taken an alternate shape and is presently accessible in various flavours and assortments: ice and fire to name a few.

'Paan' began from the Sanskrit word 'Parna’ which means leaf. It is fundamentally a blend of betel leaves with areca nuts and once in a  while tobacco (optional). Probably the cultural significance can be gauged from the popular Bollywood number, “Khaike paan Banaras Wala”.

A few years back, Odeon Gupta became an internet sensation with people rushing to try their trending fire paan. The entire social media was flooded with videos of people eating their paans. The paan got so famous that it made its name into the headlines of leading newspapers and news channels.

Delhi’s most lovable paan shop was started in 1948. It’s the 4th generation who is taking care of this legendary paan shop. While talking with CitySpidey, Varun Gupta the owner of the Odeon Gupta shop told us that his late grandfather started this paan shop, and after that, his father took care of it. “Now I  am the one who handles everything.  This place was also adorned by many Bollywood actors, Shahrukh Khan,  Amitabh Bachchan and many more.”

Here at Odeon, you will find varieties of paans. Unlike the staple meetha paan, they have flavours of paans on their menu one cannot imagine. Fire paan, chuski paan, sweet paan, chocolate paan,  strawberry paan, dark current paan, ghundi paan, margarine scotch be a  tease paan and so on. The quality of their products is always top-notch. Without a doubt, the lengthy menu demonstrates that the paan has seen a lot of funky innovations.

Speaking from personal experience, a few days back, I was suffering from a sore throat. Once my dad told me about their medicinal paan that can help to cure your throat. I asked them for their medicinal paan for the sore throat, he immediately made the paan and gave it to me. I just needed to keep the paan inside my mouth and suck the mixture. Their medicinal paan helped me to release the pain and gave me instant comfort.

Odeon Gupta is a must for all paan lovers. Non-paan lovers should also give it a try for an experience. You will have good taste, and definitely, a good Instagram story.
