Not so Tasty Chaat

Chatkaz Iselin Review: Sweetish Papdi Chaat, OK Samosa Chaat

My favorite Indian street food is Chaat.

I doubt there's any Indian who does not love Chaat.

Even in distant U.S.A, Chaat has become so popular that these days it's available nearly everywhere.

Chaat is available at Indian grocery stores in the form of Haldiram or Swad packets with either dry spice powder or chutneys, in sweets stores, fast food restaurants and even in food courts these days.

The other day while driving on Oak Tree Road in Iselin (NJ), I developed a sudden urge to eat some spicy, tangy and yummy Chaat.

I made a quick turn into Kumar Soni Plaza to check out the Chaat items in Flavor Junction Food Court on the 2nd Floor.

Of the six restaurants in Flavor Junction, Chaat is available only at Chatkaz.

Besides a variety of Chaat, Chatkaz also offers Gujarati Thali, Pav Bhaji etc.

I placed an order each of Samosa Chaat ($5.99) and Papdi Chaat ($5.99). My total bill including tax came to $12.82.

Since it is a food court, you place your order, pay for it and wait for your order to be ready.

It took 15 minutes for Chatkaz kitchen to get my Chaats ready.

No Water with my $12 Food

When I got my Chaats, I did not get water with my Chaats despite paying $12.82 for the food.

My order of Chaats came with two plastic spoons, one fork and two napkins.

Though my order included Samosa Chaat, I did not get a knife.

I looked around for a water jug in a common area where the plastic forks, knives etc and other stuff are usually kept in a food court.

But I did not find any water jug in the Flavor Junction food court.

OK Samosa Chaat

Sweetish Papdi Chaat

There were multiple problems with my Papdi Chaat order.

Samosa Chaat

Mucho disappointed with my Papdi Chaat, I turned my attention to Samosa Chaat.

Chatkaz Rating

On the whole, my Chaat adventure at Chatkaz was dissappointing.

Papdi Chaat was sweetish while Samosa Chaat was just ok. Also the lady who took my order never bothered to enquire about my preference for spice level - mild, medium or hot.

If you are a Chaat aficionado like me, I suggest you check out Desi Galaxy in Sugar Tree Plaza or pick up a Chaat packet from nearby Patel Brothers Indian grocery store. - © OakTreeRoad.us
