How many of you know that Chole/Matar Kulcha is a Street food? Almost everyone in North India knows about it and during our commute to work from home or from home to work we see a number of hawkers selling it. For those who don’t know, the Kulchas has its antecedents at the time of the Indus Valley Civilization and somehow become a part of the Indian diet in later years.
A recent visit to Bestech Chamber made me discover Koolchas, a wonderful place that serves beautiful combinations of flat bread, i.e., kulchas.
Koolchas, as the name suggests is an outlet dedicated towards Kulcha and they know how to maintain your taste buds. If you believe me, Koolchas is an honest attempt to take kulcha to masses in retail avatar in an organized way. You’ll be amazed to see how these people are putting up a good fusion show of Indian street food and living up to the expectations.
Koolchas is a QSR outlet and it is easy to find it. The place is located in Bestech Chamber, Sushant Lok Phase 1, Gurugram and it is hardly 10 minutes walk from the Huda City Centre metro station. It’s a small quirky restaurant that offers authentic Indian taste and a great variety of Kulchas with choice of bread. The place opens 24 hours and remains almost full with Kulcha lovers. The place has got some amazing twists to normal routine Kulcha that is served normally with chole/matar.

Additionally, the place is perfect for a family outing or for groups. You can enjoy a good time with your family while having freshly made Kulchas, sides, and beverages.

During our visit, we ordered Dhabad Mutton, Dal Karari, Chicken Choudhry, Veg Cocktail Kebab, Teekhi Mirch, and Masala Dhaniya. The Kulchas are baked and that’s why they’re hot, fresh, light and fluffy. Additionally, the kulchas are served with great presentation and the masalas they use are freshly prepared & no extra unpleasant spices added in it. Along with kulcha, you get chutney, onions, and pickle.
In drinks, we had Shikanji with Soda Mint Soda, and Kokum. The drinks are refreshing and taste well.
We ended our meal on a sweet note by trying out their Kesar Badam Kulfi, Paan Kulfi, and Thandai Kulfi. The Kulfis were amazing and had lovely authentic flavors.
