I am a freelance writer, living in Bath with my wife and son. I love my city, and love to live here. I write about Bath a lot, and sometimes about travels in Ireland and France.

Chai Walla- Simply The Very Best
Chai Walla, time after time, are applauded as serving the best street food in Bath. After visiting them today, I wholeheartedly agree. This miniature kiosk on Kingsmead Square in the city centre may be absolutely tiny, but it offers hugely appealing food, at ridiculously low prices. I visited India in 2006, and have not eaten any food as authentic ever since. I have also not experienced so many people gregariously queuing up in a place for something that they know will be special.

Small but powerful- Chai Walla is good for the soul

The food at Chai Walla is perfect in its simplicity and tastiness. The stripped-down menu may be minimal, but everything that they offer is both genuine and accomplished. I ordered the Samosa Chat today, and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a vegetable samosa, placed in a fiery chickpea curry and sprinkled with tandoori rice and herbs. Full of flavour and goodness, it had all of the smoky, warming kick of the food that I enjoyed during my travels in New Delhi, and was served by relaxed and friendly staff.

Chai Walla is a true hidden gem, and over the past year has drawn the attention of all of Bath's premier food critics. I love the fact that in a city of ostentatious venues, it is a street stall that takes the crown for the best food in Bath. It really is the best, and so if you are in the city and want a taste of India, then go here.
