Food Stall in Delhi
Meet your friendly local guide at the Vishwidhalaya Metro Station in the late afternoon to begin your food walking tour through the busy streets of Delhi’s Kamla Nagar neighborhood.
Hop on a rickshaw, one of the most common methods of transportation in Delhi, and pass through the city’s colleges and universities, stopping at an ancient Hanuman temple where locals gather to pay respect to the Hindu deity.
You’ll then head to your first food stop to witness how fresh local shawarma are made in only five minutes! If you’re a meat lover, you’ll love a sliver of this lamb, chicken, beef or mixed meats grilled on a spit.
Continue to a popular neighborhood hotspot, frequented by all walks of life including students. Here, enjoy a local favorite – fresh fruit beer – as well as banta, a delicious lemon-based drink that’s an ideal refreshment for hot Delhi weather.
Wind your way through the Kamla market and emerge onto a narrow alley full of delectable street food joints. This lane -- a great spot for photographers – is where you’ll sample several local specialties such as paneer tikka (tandoori-grilled, spice-marinated paneer), golgappas (savory stuffed pastry ball), bhelpuri (puffed rice and vegetables in a tangy tamarind sauce) and paav bhaji (potato curry with bread).
After these delectable samples, enjoy a stroll through nearby markets, where you can admire the work of local henna painters. Here, sample some crispy potatoes and stop for a refreshing serving of kulfi-falooda (homemade ice cream).
Your final stop is a sweet shop, whose fresh samosas (fried or baked pastry), rabdi (pudding) gulabjamun (bite-sized doughnuts) and sweet flavored milk await you. This is the perfect way to top off your delicious food tour!
