Not to be disloyal to DU or anything but when it comes to superb canteens and Dhabas JNU too offers tough competition. Ganga dhaba, north eastern dhaba , ISC canteen and TEFLA are patronized by students , alumni and professors alike.
After navigating our way through the sprawling Jawahar lal Nehru University campus, we finally spotted TEFLA canteen. The voluble owner of Tefla Mrs. Mittal was most generous with information as well as her food helpings.
Spacious, unpretentious and graffiti covered walls , it radiated the archetypical easy going yet vibrant JNU atmosphere. Good cross ventilation and ample table fans made TEFLA a respite from the otherwise sweltering heat.
This place is the perfect student hangout. Even at 4 p.m , clusters of students involved in deep conversation and intellectual debates were spotted. Catering to all sorts of taste buds, TEFLA menu hosted a range of cuisines from chinese , south Indian to Mughlai.
Perfect for students with relatively empty pockets and even emptier stomachs , TEFLA with its exorbitantly low prices and generous helpings can provide one with a wholesome meal for as much as 40 rupees.
The favorites of this place include the freshly prepared rose flavoured coffee, vegetarian thali , non veg momos and shahi paneer. We do advise the health freaks to steer clear of those oil exuding pakodas.
