my opinion is going to be biased because I've practically lived in delhi all my life, so yes, it's delhi for me Tongue I haven't really been to bombay minus a few quick visits, so from whatever little that I've seen, I think bombay is fast, attractive, intense and very very dirty. everyone works and everyone runs around, and there is no time for a breather at all.
 
delhi is alot more laid-back and chilled out Tongue basically the total opposite of bombay in every aspect - slow, cultural, calm and cleaner. people have lots of time and money on their hands here and waste both of them without any guilt LOL 

basically, bombay has the perfect work culture while delhi has the perfect 'social' culture. although I will have to add that people in bombayare definitely more down-to-earth as compared to delhi. so everyone whose ambitious and wants to make big bucks should migrate to bombay while all the creative people should stay put in delhi (it offers a multitude of cultural/creative pursuits)

Neetz, long time no see in this part of the woods. *hugs* even though you are from that place called Delhi. How have you been?

 

Btw, you missed some prostitution fireworks. Were you not the one who lit that spark on DM last year around?

 

So Delhi is slow, boring, and total opposite of awesomeness that is Bombay. Thanks for the affirmation.

bombay is ultra fast and tiring too, totally opposite of coolness that is delhi Tongue

Its all over hon, all over. Leave the bitterness and anger behind. Tongue

 

So you've grown up in Delhi all the time. You sound more spunky, like you should be from Bombay.

Btw, I hear Delhi can't serve up a proper filter coffee brew for the life of them.
That is sooo not true.

Bapu ji, shakahaari ho ya maansahaari? Depending on that batayenge Dilli ki cuisine kya hai Tongue 
 
@Debo - Chaat at Nathu's, or Shajahan Road, Dosa and filter coffee at Madras Hotel in CP, Chinese food from the vans in Janpath, Karim's kabab's in Nizamuddin/Jama Masjid, dal pakodey in lajpat Nagar, gajar ka halwa and chhole bhatoorey at Roshan di Hatti in Karol Bagh...Big smile 
Well, when we lived in Delhi, everyone used to listen to my mom about where to go out to eat(which pissed me off big time). And my mom was so into saving money, so we generally didn't go to uber expensive places even if we could afford too. Plus, my mom liked Chinese and SI, so we mostly went out to those types of restaurants(which also ticked me off, because unlike my parents, I'm a proper Dilliwalla, who needs his spicesTongue
 
Oh, Chaat at Nathu's is awesome, nothing compared to what they have at that crappy Haldiram's or Bikaner. Nah, the best(and simple) dosas you can get is at Karnataka Bhavan in CP itself(I think Janpath area), Karim's is incomparable as far as Mughlai cuisine is concerned in the city, although I've had better at Nizam's in Kolkata, TBH.
 
Ohh, and the best ice-cream sodas you can get at Nirula's, under the Lajpat Nagar bridge or the outside Chankya Cinema hallBig smile
