Eat at just Rs 9 to Rs 99 at ‘The Nukkad Wala’, a place that takes you down the memory lane

With an intention of the serving dishes, which we have forgotten with time and at affordable prices – The Nukkad Wala – (an eatery) was inaugurated recently at NIT Complex, North Ambazari Road, Nagpur. Nagpur MLA Sudhakarrao Deshmukh inaugurated the restaurant owned by Ashish and Soniya Vijaywargi. Friends of the Vijaywargi family also attended the inauguration to wish Ashish and Soniya the very best for the new venture.

Pocket friendly!

Speaking to Nation Next about the reason behind the inception of the restaurant and its unique name, Soniya Vijaywargi said, My son Arnav studies in Delhi and comes across a lot of problems pertaining to good food on a daily basis. Also, the food available is very costly. Taking a cue from this, we came up with The Nukkad Wala. Our restaurant is for the common man as the price range at our place is just from Rs 9 to Rs 99! The food available at our place is the delicious food, which used to be available at ‘Nukkads’ (roadside) in the olden days. Now with time, the Nukkad eateries have vanished and we miss them! Through The Nukkad Wala, we intend to bring those food items back at affordable prices. Some of the items available at our place include Kulhad ki chai, Rabdi jalebi, Mal poha, Lassi, Kanche wala soda, etc.

Old school interiors

Interestingly, the interiors of The Nukkad Wala are completely old school. From switches to window glasses, from teacups to food jars, everything is old school. Even old paper cuttings can be seen on the wall along with photo frames of old movie posters. Speaking about the interiors, Soniya said, The things that we have used for the interiors are not readily available. We hunted for everything from different cities and from the internet too.
