Bunny Chow is the Indian dish that almost no Indian has heard of unless of course, they have travelled to South Africa’s Durban, where people rave about this dish.

Shanal Ramroop, the inventor of the dish, talks fondly about how it actually involves no rabbit at all – only a loaf of bread that is cut in a square, cored out and filled with thick, spicy mutton curry. 


Served with rice and carrot salad, Bunny Chow is especially loved by the sugarcane plantation workers for whom the dish can be easily carried. That is also a reason why the dish is a famous street food in Durban.

Looks delectable, right? Tempted to try it but can’t fly out to South Africa?

Turns out, you don’t have to. 

Because word spreads and it was only a matter of time when the dish made an appearance in Delhi. 

So if you want to try a helping, head to Papa Buns in Satya Niketan, or The Classroom in Gurgaon Sector 29, or Our Story in Noida, Sector 18. 

You are welcome.
