We all know that Odisha is most loved for its temples and beautiful beaches but what about its capital city Bhubaneswar? What if we were to tell you that you have seen and experienced nothing till you have fully explored those streets, those narrow crowded pockets of Bhubaneswar? Yes, it's food we are talking about. 
Here we are not talking about the fancy and overpriced gourmet food, we mean some serious food that will give you #TravelGoals and #FoodGoals. And will also make you #FoodieForLife. Bhubaneswar's street food scene is not often talked about and we wonder why. We are here to change that because Odiya street food is not only delicious, it is also full of character, is seeped in culture and have that extra zing that will make you want to come back for more. With a lot of crunch and sweet and savoury pop in your mouth, we bring you a glimpse of Bhubaneswar's street food scene.
