Bapu ji ko maro goli aur chalo Dilli! Kya yaad dila diya subah subah, bahni!
Paranthey from Prantheywali gali in chandni chowk - yummieeee! Then there's sweets from Gnatewala who has been in business since late 1700's. Their sohan halwa is amazing! Delhi has so much history behind it's food joints. We will cross 150 pages if we start discussing all that here!
Have you been to Pindi and/or Gulati in Pandara road? You get delicious veg & non-veg dishes there and reasonably priced too! Then there are road-side dhabas around Cannaught Place, especially Kake da Dhaba, that churn out mouth watering veg as well as non-veg dishes. Bhalla chaat at ITO, out of this world chholey bhaturey at Kwality restaurant in Cannaught Place and Evergreen in Green Park, momos at dilli haat, wide varieties of sandwiches and pizzas at Nirula's even before pizza hut and Mc Donald's went global! I can go on and on and on raving about the awesome food joints in Delhi! The list is never ending.
Why Delhi offers a better variety and even better quality of food than Mumbai?
Simple - because Delhi has gone through many dynasties in past. Each dynasty, be it Rajputs, Arabs, Afghans, Mughals and English left their mark on Delhi's cuisine. Right after partition, the Punjabis came from Pakistan into delhi with nothing, made Delhi home in a short span of time and introduced a whole new line of cuisine - the daal makhani, butter chicken and whole bunch of tandoori apetizers. What Delhi-ites don't like, they easily amend like the famous Indian-Chinese cuisine that first originated in Delhi!
Mumbai can keep on trying but will never get so many personalities in her cuisine. Delhi kicks Mumbai's a$$ fair and square when it comes to food:)
dang gauri di now im hungry
