    The Potbelly

    In episode three of Tasty Adda season two, we will acquaint you with a restaurant in New Delhi where you can try tasty and healthy delicacies from Bihar. You can taste the authentic flavours from The Potbelly. 

    This time we went to a restaurant in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, which is run by Puja Sahu and her mother. Her mother is the head chef and Puja decides the menu. The Bihari culinary technique is all about deep frying, roasting, and steaming. 


    She opened this restaurant in March 2015. This restaurant is unique in its own way, each corner reflects the culture and authenticity be it decor, ambience, lighting, and cute tissue holders. She opened her first restaurant at Shapur in August 2011. 

    Take a look at what delicacies our host, Diksha Chaudhary, tried and what has been her experience. 

    How They Came Up With This Name 

    Puja asked for restaurant name suggestions from her friends and one of her friends randomly said to try “Peeto” which means “Potbelly” in English. And this is how she came up with this name.
