Kanpur aaye aur Munna Samosa nahi khaaya, toh kya khaak Kanpur aaye?!
That is what you get to hear if you visit Kanpur and plan on leaving without trying the legendary samosas of Munna! We can't help but nod our heads in agreement too. One can't simply claim that they've explored the city without heading to Munna Samosa, which claims to be 'Kanpur Ki Shaan'. Established by Mr. Ram Gupta in the year 1973, this brand is owned by his grandson, Arpit Gupta, at present.
Spicy, fried & all things nice
One of the most-loved names in Kanpur when it comes to snacking, especially by the lovers of all things spicy and fried, Munna Samosa is known for its timeless taste and a flavourful peppery potato stuffing, inside of a perfectly fried golden cover. This classic Indian snack, straight out of the hot kadhai, is good enough to satiate anyone and everyone's hunger pangs. These mouth-watering samosas will not let you stop at just one, we bet!
Not your average samosa place!
With an official website dedicated to this samosa joint, it stands apart from the others in the city. What started as just another samosa place, is now a renowned name in Kanpur, with two outlets to its credits. The growth of Munna Samosa over the course of 48 years has been inspirational, to say the least. Carrying forward the legacy along with the secret recipe of his grandfather, Arpit has revamped it while staying true to the trademark taste and quality of food.
To cheat or not to cheat?
BTW apart from the samosas, you can also get your hands on their mirchi vadas, gujiyas, dhoklas and khasta kachoris. But samosa being the joint's speciality, a plethora of its variants are available here to hog on, like the Paneer Corn Samosa, Cheese Pizza Samosa, Malai Paneer Samosa and so on. So when here, not cheating on our diet is just too darn difficult!
As you plan on indulging in some yummy samosas, keep your sanitiser handy and mask up because the pandemic is still not over yet! Also, the samosas here are served with two types of chutneys- green and red, one of these will set your tastebuds on fire and no, we're not telling which one; GO FIGURE!
