Nothing can beat the tang of a late night appetite. To gratify some mid night carvings, the city holds an array of decent food joints and restaurants. Hotel Mountview is a 5-star dining with a 24-hour coffee shop. Other than the elite style and service Mountview is better known for its zest in Biryani, Pav Bhaji, and Keema Pav. We all have our drunken times; the post drink scenario infuses some heavy hunger in our system. Aroma is the place you want to head then. The place is a bit hasty at the weekends, but it is worth your time. For our college buds who have less in the wallet and are always high on hunger, some pleasant street food is their shrine for the midnight. The Tech Market of Sector 22 is one such place. The aroma of cutting chai served with a fluffy omelet is the heart of the place. Again, an omelette blended in a parantha is itself an art of this happy man in the Service lane of Sector 16.
