Adarsh Namkeen is arguably the best samosa place in Bhopal. It is located at the heart of New Market.

Another great place to fill your appetite while at New Market is Little Hut Punjabi Chole Bhature. The deep fried bhature with chole masala is all you need after a good shopping session at new market. Just put some tamarind chutney and chopped onion on it and you are good to go.

Crispy Noodles @ Vishnu and Sharma Chinese

No matter if you like or hate authentic Chinese food, you are going to love this inauthentic Chinese. Vishnu and Sharma fast food is a joint venture between two of the oldest Chinese joints of bhopal. They have branches at TT Nagar, MP nagar and more. It is a great place to go to for some evening time munching or a college treat. Also try dry manchurian and cheese pasta.

Bhopal Beat | Cheese Sandwich at Sagar Gaire

This is probably one of the best dishes that we are adding into this article. Very infamous outside Bhopal, but the veg cheese sandwich of Sagar Gaire is Bhopal's heartbeat. This is one sandwich you cannot get anywhere else in the world. Must try if you are in Bhopal or are planning to visit there anytime.

Fried Momos @ Rahul Meena's

Cuisine - Momos
Approx. cost for two ₹150

Bhopal Beat | Momos at Shahpura

I just can't say anything about these momos without water in my mouth, and I am not joking. Rahul Meena's momo parlour is located near old Campion school, Shahpura lake. Inspired by Delhi's momos, these fried dumplings are a lip smacking treat for everyone.

Rabdi Jalebi @ Hawker's Corner

Cuisine - Dessert 
Approx. cost for two ₹50

Jalebi is one of the best desserts that you can have to set your mood afresh. If the jalebi is warm and is topped with some creamy rabdi, then what else do you need?
