If variety is the spice of your life, then Gargi College canteen serves your purpose right. The college canteen is abuzz with friends bonding over food, cursing their mundane schedule and
still managing to laugh it off with a number of delicacies satisfying their taste buds. From chilli potato to chole bhature, the menu won’t fail to impress you.

One can see students indulging in candid conversations as ‘garma garam chaii' soothes their cold nerves during winters. Platter of snacks like chilli potato, bread pakora, samosa and French fries are a hit with students. As Sanjana Agarwal, a 3rd year student puts it, ‘What I am going
to miss the most are french fries undoubtedly. We friends make it a point to have French fries everyday.’ The canteen’s best bets are chole bhature, macaroni and uttapam. If you haven’t had them, you have missed quite a lot! Friends can be seen pooling in money and grabbing a bite, each of Chinese, north Indian and south Indian cuisine. The canteen is jampacked during break to an extent that students have to wait in the queue for close to twenty minutes which is a major disappointment. 1st year student, Nandini Maheshwari adds that, ‘The hygiene factor is often forgotten in haste. Further, the seating arrangement is dab and insufficient to accommodate students during gaps and lunch break.’ However Nescafe steps in as the savior in such situations. Frappe, chicken patty, tomato soup, students swear by its menu. Chocolate
truffle pastry is a major hit among students so much so they don’t mind shelling out 40 bucks for it because it’s totally worth it. Also, a true taste sensation, its maggi is to die for!

‘Mithas’ outside college is also a famous hangout spot with a lot of variety to offer, its veg sizzler being a major attraction. Affordable prices and comfortable ambience make it the perfect college students’ adda. Let alone mithas, the ‘chaat wala’ outside Gargi and KNC prepares the best sev puri ever on earth in just Rs. 10/- with no compromise on hygiene (He uses gloves. Beat that!). Haven’t tried it yet? Try it now.

If you are a true blue foodie, options are galore in and around Gargi!
