The place can be a little crowded around lunchtime, so we recommend going a little early (before 12 pm). As the name suggests, chole bhature remains the speciality of Bhogal but that’s not all, you can also munch on chole chawal, kulchas, parathas and more at nominal prices. You must definitely try this street food in CP.
