Delhi is known for its Chaat Papri, Chole Bhature, Tikki Samosa basically STREET FOOD and to name just a few is a task. I feel its partiality with others. Hence I will only write about places I have personally been to and am fond of! I would recommend it to everyone even the foreigners because the food served is not just finger licking, pocket friendly but also fresh.
Delicious De Paul’s Coffee (Source)
The first on my list is cold coffee from ‘De Paul’s’ at Jan path. It comes in many flavors like vanilla, mocha, hazelnut but I recommend the original plain cold coffee. I bet you would love to sip cold coffee from here! You have got to try it to believe it. But if you are not fond of coffee and prefer milk shakes then you cannot miss ‘Keventers’ (Shake Square). Their shakes particularly pineapple and strawberry are out of the world. Simply amazing.
Tempting pakodas right from the kitchen of Khandani Pakode Wala (Source)
Although its monsoon that reminds one of pakodas but you don’t need to wait for the rain to have pakodas from this place, commonly known as Khandani Pakode waala in Sarojini Nagar. A bit spicy but then who wants to have homemade khichdi or dal chawal?
Yummy Rabri Faluda from Giani di Haati (Source)
Purani Dilli is known for its spicy street food but I recommend you cannot miss the rabri faluda at Giani Di Hatti even if you don’t have a sweet tooth. Whether its scorching heat or chilly winters, this place is always full with ice cream lovers.
Soicy Chole Bhature from Chacha Di Haati (Source)
Kamla Nagar Market is known for its location i.e. near the Delhi University, North Campus and chole Bhature at Chacha Di Hatti. You will find a queue over there even before the shop and the food finishes before the lunch hour. So you have got to reach here as early as you can.
Alternatively you can also try poori’s with choley aloo at Bille-Di-Hatti BTW it stands for Bitto Tikki Waala is spread all over Delhi. A plate of tikka cannot be consumed by one person unless of course you are starving for quite some hours. Its value for money, fresh, crispy and filling!
Buttery egg parathas with green chillies (Source)
Moolchand is a famous hospital in Lajpat Nagar but more than that it’s known for the egg parathas and chur chur naan on the opposite side. The parathas are stuffed with egg and aloos served with mix pickle and you cannot afford to miss his Tea, not just to wash off the fats you consumed but also for its taste.
So far I have not mentioned a single joint known for non-veg delicacies that’s because it’s confusing to pick out one from countless.
Dish from Rajinder Da Dhaba (Source)
Anyways I would suggest Rajinder-Da-Dhaba at Safdurjang Enclave for its taste, freshness, location, ample parking space, a nearby liquor shop in short a Paradise for meat lovers. If you love to have non vegetarian food, you shouldn’t miss out this one. Moving on to the next, you can have a whole plate of Bhel Puri or Sev Puri in South Extension part 1. It’s the corner shop, popularly known as south ex1 ki bhel puri. The flavors are so original that one doesn’t need to fly to Mumbai all the way to relish the Maharasthrian snack. A wholesome meal even a dieter can enjoy without giving a second thought.
The unbeatable Shwarmas from Al Bake (Source)
Shwarmas can be found easily in all parts of Delhi. But the one I am talking about are better than the original shwarmas from Dubai or even Egypt for that matter. Al-Bake in New Friends Colony serves the best shwarma along with mayonnaise. A big no for hygiene freaks and YEY for fresh tasty authentic shwarma lovers.
Colorful Chuski at India Gate (Source)
Lastly but not the least you cannot skip the chuski at India Gate precisely as he sings the song LOVELY CHUSKI pehle school main khate the ab India Gate pe khaate hain aaha Lovely Chuski, following it is the chuski at South Extension part 2 at Charan Singh, known for its fruit kulfi. No it’s not a big shop but a maruti van from where he serves you the best tasty hygienic kulfis.
In Dill waalo Ki Delhi, I can assure that you will also fall in love with the food out here and will surely gain a hell lot of weight. But then if you are a foodie, who cares?
