Don’t miss having Traditional Gujarati Breakfast here after your Ahmedabad Heritage Walk

Traditional Gujarati Breakfast at 120 year old Chandravilas Restaurant on Gandhi road near Manek Chowk, Ahmedabad

May be, it is not as popular as South Indian or Punjabi, but I have to let you know that Gujarati breakfast has as much deliciousness and variety, if not more. The only sad thing is that it is not available all over the country and one has to be in Gujarat to enjoy it completely.

Fresh tasty Khaman on offer at Chandravilas Restaurant, Ahmedabad

With dishes like Khakhra, Fafda, Khaman, Jalebi, Patrode, Methi Muthia, Methi na Gota and more, a traditional Gujarati breakfast is an instant trip to gastronomic heaven. Now, a lot of you might say that most of these dishes are deep-fried and are unhealthy, but we Indians love deep-fried stuff on our breakfast plates. There is the iconic vada in the South, the deep-fried Puri and Jalebi in the East and the ubiquitous Chole Bhature in the north. Jokes apart, there are healthy options even in Gujarati food. The Khaman, which is steamed chickpea flour and yoghurt and tempered with spices, is a fantastic power packed and healthy option and it is served with sweet kadi, which is a great shot of healthy probiotics with a protein powered breakfast. And it is super delicious too. And there is the khakhra, which is the traveler’s favorite. I would not at all mind starting my day with khakhra and a hot cup of masala chai.

Now, the reason I am giving you all this information is because there is a 120 year old iconic restaurant that serves some of the best traditional Gujarati breakfast in Ahmedabad. If you are doing a Ahmedabad heritage walk, you will be in its vicinity and even if you are not going on a heritage walk through the walled city, I would still recommend going here for at least one breakfast on your visit to Ahmedabad. Located on Gandhi road and super close to the famous landmarks of Jama Masjid and Manek chowk, Chandravilas restaurant is a simple place on a busy street, but when it comes to dishing our traditional Gujarati food, they pack a serious punch. It is one of those places that I would return to in a heartbeat. You could either have a mix breakfast Thali (for INR 65) to get a taste of all traditional Gujarati dishes or like a true Gujarati, you could order Fafda and Jalebi. Whatever you order, the food will pack you with enough protein, calories and deliciousness to power a good portion of your day. A heritage walk of the walled city of Ahmedabad is possibly the best way to burn it all and leave you with absolutely no guilt. I recommend this place big time!
