A good friend of mine grabbed lunch at Vik’s Chaat in Berkeley, California last weekend. Known for their variety of Indian Street food, we ordered a large variety to share and to take home for later.
We started out with mango lassis and a lychee juice:
We got things started with the Dahi Batata Puri:
Aloo Tikki is a dish of crispy potato patties with masala sauce and chutneys:
I do enjoy Dosas, which are savory crepes, filled with yummy goodness:
We were running out of room on the table and so we combined the next two dishes onto one tray. I love samosas and theirs are fantastic. I’m a big fan of their Koliwada Fish – spicy and hot on the outside but delicate and fresh on the inside.
My favorite is their Bhel Puri, which is a dish made of rice puffs, potatoes, onions and chutneys:
For the road, I got their chicken and vegetable Kathis to go:
I also got their paratha filled with gobi, or cauliflower, to go:
