An array of delectable sweets and savouries.

Bimbis at Pazhvangadi is the new one-stop place in Thiruvananthapuram for sweets and namkeens (savouries) from various parts of the country.

It will open its vegetarian restaurant on the first floor by the month-end. Situated adjacent to Sri Gurukripa, this place is a cornucopia of eats.

Besides the usual South Indian sweets such as laddos, jalebis/jangrees, burfis and Mysore pak the shop also has the more exotic ones such as Badushah, and various kinds of halwas.

North Indian sweets

The shop has a wide variety of North Indian sweets such as gujiya, a sweet that resembles a conch with a rich filling of raisins and nuts, peda, soan papdi, laddos, different kinds of burfis, and gulab jamuns to name a few.

Apart from North Indian sweets, Bengali sweets such as rosogolla and chamcham are also available. The shop stocks dry fruits as well. What makes the shop different from the other sweet shops in the city is the wide variety of namkeens/mixtures that are available. There are the home-grown variations of the mixture that is available in Kerala.

Savouries

Then there is a variety of north Indian savouries such as the typical mathri, pakodas, which is made of gram flour and spices, along with the usual samosas and pav bhaji.

Bimbis is a good place for those looking for a light meal. It is a good time for chaat and pani puri lovers in the city.

On Bimbis' menu are papdi chaat (a version of chaat), pani puri, bhel puri and kachori as well. These are available after 3 p.m.
