You definitely don’t want to miss this, if you are a foodie and in Delhi
Delhi and Delhi-ites are known as much for their insatiable appetites as they are for the unending variety of food found in the city. Any cuisine type, chaat or north Indian food, you name it, we have it. But what really captures the essence of the city is the street food that changes colour and taste but gets only better with discovering the city. Here is an (in)exhaustive list of the best Delhi street food eateries.
Stereotypes are not restricted to people but also to food.
Al Bake takes a different route from that of the traditional shawarmas but their servings are not any less tasty for that matter.
When you are in Old Delhi, you just can’t miss the food there. The streets buzz with activity and are filled with the aroma of food. For the connoisseurs, there are restaurants like Karim’s. For the food historians, there’s a chance to taste Butter Chicken at Moti Mahal.
A good idea would be to start with the Paranthewali Gali. It became a famous gourmet locality when the parantha shops moved here in the 1870s.
The smell of fresh, aromatic kebabs and fried chicken is in the air once you enter this lane. They sell kebabs and tikkas (made of buffalo meat) with rumali roti (paper-thin bread) at throwaway prices. The Mutton here is the best in the Karims. Other unmissable are Stew, Mutton Korma, Shammi Kabab and Shahjahani Korma.
