Evenings in Kidwai Nagar are incomplete without a trip to 'Spicy Fast Foods' & here's why

Looking for some good old 'spicy food' in Kanpur?

If you're a foodie who lives in Kanpur, you know that the streets of this city have some of the best food options. Local eateries and small joints in the city, serve better food than sophisticated eateries and posh cafes. Hence, Kanpur has been in love with the local shops, the food you can get here and the bustle that comes with it all.


If like the rest of us, you too cannot have enough of good old 'desi fast food' and street eats, 'Spicy Fast Foods' in Kanpur is just where you need to be.

Desi, Spicy & Reasonable


Located at a busy lane in Kanpur's Kidwai Nagar Market, Spicy Fast Foods is an icon. Be it an evening 'grocery stroll' to the market or a walk back home from tuition, one can always spot, the joint swarmed by locals. Students, broke college kids, working people and even families find themselves at Spicy Fast Foods looking for some hot AF noodles, a rich dish of veg manchurian and mouth-watering soup.

The quaint shop is an old establishment here which started off with a small joint serving noodles and fries, but today it is a local icon serving everything from burgers, pav bhaji, dosa, to the staple soups, noodles and fried rice.

'Spicy Fast Foods' is immensely popular among students, who come here for the reasonable prices. You can easily fill your stomach and have a delicious 'outside meal' here in under ₹200 which makes up for the ambiance our the lack of a proper sit-down vibe.

Popular and recommended

Known for its Chinese and South Indian grub, 'Spicy Fast Foods' serves a variety of delicious dishes. Ask a local and they will not stop praising the hakka noodles, mushroom soup, fried rice, paneer dosa or the idli fry, served here.

While we are also a fan of the veg cheese burgers, pav bhaji, mushroom paneer pizza and veg roll. The dishes served here are delicious, satiating and prepared with an added 'desi flair', making them a crowd favourite.

Though small, Spicy Fast Foods is one of the most loved joints in the city. And if you live in or around Kidwai Nagar Market, there's no way you haven't heard about them.
