Delhiites may crib about several things in their city but food is one thing that satisfies even the most demanding gourmet. Delhi is not only about upscale restaurants in posh areas, it has the best and widest choice for street food as well. Talking about the local dishes, you will love to savor the spicy Chaat (with loads of variety like paneer tikka, paapdi chaat, golguppa or Panipuri) and delightful Kulfi, an Indian version of ice cream. Delhiites also have an appetite for tandoori roti and tandoori chicken and Paranthas with lots of butter. You will also love the wholesome Choley Bhature or Choley Kulche along with a glass of Lassi (a refreshing beverage).

Enjoy your favorite local food at:

  • Bitto Tikki Wala: You will love to indulge in the best aloo tikki available in the city. Bitto Tikki Wala offers you just that and more with its lavish menu that boasts of mouth watering Raj Kachori, Bhalla Papadi, Channa Bhatura and Laccha Takori among other food items. The food chain is flocked by visitors all through the day and no wonder it is a popular hangout for people who love enjoying street food in Delhi.
