Vada Pav is something that has no footing in Delhi at all, and its almost impossible to find one except for very few places in Delhi. So when I heard that Goli Vada Pav No.1 is opening their shutter in Delhi, I got very excited about it as had heard a lot about them from my friends who keep travelling to Mumbai and Bangalore.
Being a franchise based model I was not expecting the Mumbai street taste in them, however still was looking forward to their offerings as something is better than nothing. Plus was also told by someone that their vadas (or patties :P) are being manufactured in same units as McDonald’s.
|What does the packaging remind you off ??|
Me and my friends walked into their newly opened store in Karol Bagh (under Metro Station) and ordered ourselves 4 of their menu of 8-9 vada-pavs. If I remember correct we had Masala Vada Pav, Regular Pada Pav, Schezwan Vada Pav and Spinach and corn one.
First things first, all of them tasted like we were eating something from a McDonald’s store or something from a McCain’s product line. The taste was nothing like the genuine vada pav I have had, but the Schezwan flavored one really stood out. The combination was working quite well for me and my friends. Corn and Spinach one did seem interesting, however being the last one to go in us, I guess our lack of hunger and hence desire did not do justice to it. So it is something that I plan on trying once again.
Over all the pricing the just right, priced between Rs. 25 to 50, it is a very affordable snack and if you are looking for something on the go this is just what you would eat. However its not something you will eat if you are looking for the genuine Mumbai taste or you are too particular about nutrition.
