A longstanding Drummond Street fixture, Diwana Bhel Poori House is unlikely to win many awards for its no-frills decor. Its popularity comes instead from its menu – a showcase of vegetarian South Indian street food.
Bhel poori is, unsurprisingly, one of its draws, with small plates of savoury snacks (including puffed pooris, samosas, dhals and chutneys), suitable as starters or, ordered in large enough quantities, a meal in themselves.
Those seeking more substantial feeding can opt for a crispy filled dosa or a vegetarian thali mixing rice with a variety of vegetable curries; there’s also a hearty lunch buffet for those less easily satisfied.
