Best Places to Get Delicious Street Food In Delhi!

Street Food

Delhi is such a confluence of flavors that it is impossible to paint it in one color. from every corner of India, there is no variety of Street food that the keen seeker can fail to find in the national capital. From thukpa in the Tibetan Colony to purchase at C.R. Park, delicacies from all corners of India abound is here.

No often asks the question: “Where can one find food that is native to Delhi?”

To answer this, I would look at the time when culturally Delhi was at its peak, during the time of the Mughals.

Perhaps no other period in the history of phoenix city encapsulates a culture, life that could truly, uniquely be called more native.

Ideal Delhi:

Street Food should definitely start with the Old Delhi Area including Chandani Chowk, Chawri Baazar, and Sita Ram Baazar where you will find different street food dishes aloo-chaat, Dahi-bhale, Kulla-chat, japani-samosa at Manohar ka Dhaba near it, bedmi puris, and heart of Chandani chowk i.e famous paranthe wali Gali. Then you can head towards Paharganj where you will discover a different aroma of Multani flavor. you should definitely taste dal samosas at Janta Sweets, moth kachori at Moth Bhandar, Amritsari chur naan, and Sitaram diwan chand special paneer chole bhature.

Delhi has a number of good food streets.

Muslim Food:

The typical feature of the Muslim food streets is they are cheap, have no sense of hygiene, rich in spices. This is ideal for me during the Delhi winter. There are a number of Muslim food colonies in the preference list I would say:

  1. Motia Mahal: Famous for Nihari, Paya, Dhaga Kabab, and Halwa (shahi tukra, soan halwa, etc) in Delhi.
  2. Nizamuddin Darga: Famous for buff seekh kabab, buff tikka. Ideal for buffattarians.
  3. Zakir Nagar, Okhla:  Specialties are mutton qorma, biriyani.
  4. College Goer’s places: They are on the list of my favorite since my college days:
  5. Hudson Lane, GTB Nagar: Cheap food of wide range, the cafe at affordable price.
  6. Satya Niketan, South Campus (opp Venky College): Very much similar to Hudson Lane. Few good roll shops are there as well.

Regional Favourites:

A couple of colonies in Delhi has decent regional food as well which never failed my taste-buds:

  1.  Near Chandni Metro: Ideal for me when I like to taste vegetarian food. Shop owners are mostly Punjabi, Jaat, and Jain. Parathe of Parathe wale Gali, several chat stalls, sweet shops, chole bhature of Nand di Ji bhature wale of Pan Mandi, Sadar Bazar are on my list in this area.
