Views: 2026

Bhubaneswar local people basically love every food, especially street food most. In Bhubaneswar, the capital city of Odisha is also famous for street food. I have eaten so many varieties of street food basically in the street and also the restaurant owner also includes some of the famous street food in their menu to grow their business.

There are so many street food vendors who open small portable carts in different locations to fill the empty stomach of food lovers.

Are you a food lover? Are you crazy about new foods? Or explore some new foods which you haven’t eaten in your life.

If Yes, then I have a solution for you, you are gonna thank me later.

Here is my list of the most famous street food in Bhubaneswar which I have tested during my last visit to Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

1. Gupchup

One of the most famous street foods in Bhubaneswar is Gupchup, which is loved by everyone and most famous among the girls. Gupchup is also famous in other states with different names like Puchka in Bengal, Golgappa in the north and Panipuri in Western India.

The best thing about this dish is that it is so cheap and some challenges their friends or relative for eating competition.

2. Dahi vada with Aloo dum

Another famous street food after Gupchup is Dahi Vada with aloo dum. This item you can find even in early in the morning and late noon. It has Soft Dahi Vadas topped with spicy aloo dum and sprinkled with roasted cumin, chili powder, chat Masala, Khara Sev, chopped onion. It has a combination of so much ingredient which gives great flavor.

3.  Bara Ghuguni

This item you can find everywhere in Bhubaneswar on the small stalls. Bara is a deep-fried pulpy paste prepared from black gram (in local language it is called Biri) and Guguni is basically a curry made from dried peas. You can eat this item as breakfast and also as evening snacks all in your budget. No big surprise why this city has so many Bara Gauguin stalls near crowded areas.

4. Chat
Papadi Chat

Much the same as Gupchup, the chat is a savory evening snack you love to eat with the combination of sweet and sour flavor in a colorful and spicy way. This chaat is a mixture of mashed potatoes, fried crisps, Dahi vada, gram or chickpeas, and tangy-salty spices, with sour Indian chili and saunth (dried ginger and tamarind sauce), fresh green coriander leaves with yogurt for garnish. There are so many varieties of chaats some Wenders offers like Bhelpuri Chaat, Dahi puri chaat, Masala Puri chaat, Papri Chaat, etc.

5. Idli And Dosa

And the last one is Idli and Dosa with sambar. This is basically south Indian food but here you can also find this item. Those who hate oily food or avoid oily foods in their food cycle love this idli and dosa which has side item sambar or guguni with white chatni. Basically, people order masala dosa also which gives you more flavor to your mouth and satisfies your hunger in the morning and in the evening as a snack. 

Mostly I love this masala dosa in the evening with my friends and idli in the morning even though I’m not a big fan of oily food so I preferred to eat idli in the morning but many people love oily foods like bara gaugui (as discussed above).

6. Rolls
Egg Chicken Roll

The most popular food in India is Rolls which is often a favorite evening snack. There are many varieties of rolls are prepared in India and they are Egg Roll (also Includes Double eggs or single egg or with combination of chicken), Kathi Kebab Roll, Mutton Roll, Paneer Roll, Potato Roll, and even Fish Roll. Basically, egg chicken roll is the most famous street food or maybe you can say the most common food which is eaten by people.

7. Momo
Steam momo

Momos are originated from South Asian basically momo means “steamed bun“. The name comes from northern China. It is so much popular across the Indian subcontinent and the Himalayan regions of broader South Asia.

It is native to the North Indian region of Ladakh, Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, Northeast Indian regions of Sikkim, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, and Darjeeling. Momo is a type of steamed dumpling with a mixture of Vegetables or Chicken past as a filling which is served with a dipping hot sauce.

It become a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet, and Nepalese. There are so many venders who are selling steam momo and fried momos with hot sauce but “Wow! Momo” which has a specialty in making different types of flavored momo.

They offer steamed momo, simple fried & Pan Fried momo, MoBurg (which is Momo Burgers), Tandoori Momos, & a Baked Momo. They even have their dessert in momo style which is a ‘Chocolate Momo’, loved by many people.
