Khub Chand & Bros

Khub Chand & Bros at Connaught Place is a senior citizen. It has been selling ham, sausages and salami for some six decades. Not a long time ago they installed a small stove to grill ready-made kebabs for customers waiting to get their meat packed. 

Cassettes that used to roar yesterday have retired into the cupboard today.

Expert speaks: Even allowing for inflation, you have to love their rate list: pork kindney (proving that beauty is not just skin deep), sparibs and troters — two fighting clans from middle earth — and frank furter, who, if you remember, was "just a sweet transvestite, from transsexual transylvania" in the rocky horror picture show. ("That's a rather tender subject. Another slice, anyone?") — Sajan Venniyoor

For the legendary Bangalore Ham Shop, visit Slice of History, The Times of India


  1. Was searching for Khoob Chand and stumbled up on your blog. Thank you for the article and the beautiful pictures. Places like these are rare to come by. An equivalent from Calcutta (where I am from) would be Kalman or UP Cold storage.

  2. Such places have a wonderful charm about them ......
