Let me first start with a proclamation - your Delhi sojourn is a waste if you do not try Delhi’s local street food. BTW, if you don’t know Chandni Chowk is one of the top must visit places in Delhi. Cuisine wise, there is no part of India that isn’t represented in Delhi’s eating joints. From Shillong’s Wak Pura to Surat’s Lilva Kachori – Delhi has something for everyone from everywhere.

The indigenous Chaat is to Chandni Chowk what Pizza is to Italy. Although the very definition of Chaat is a little hazy, the sheer variety of street food you get to enjoy in the bylanes of Old Delhi is phenomenal. The streets look like a daily fair where people throng to satiate their third sense – the tongue. There are thousands of halwaais (sweet sellers), paranthewallas ( sweet shops selling the big, stuffed Indian paratha) and namkeen Wales ( seller of savories) – all vying for your attention as you trudge the street with excitement. Let me assist you with a quick, 2 hour itinerary to gourmet heaven. I bet you’ll return a changed man, I mean in terms of what you weigh!
But if you have more appetite for the heritage, history and culture of Delhi, you might like to check out Humayun's Tomb and Qutb Minar both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Purana Qila which was the site of legendary Inrdaprasta built by Pandavas of Mahabharata fame and the iconic India Gate which commemorates the Indian soldiers who fought and died fighting for British during World War II.
