Delhi Food Tour - The Culinary Melting Pot (Tibetan + Israeli + Afghani + Lebanese + Bengali Food)

Come along with us as we take you on a food-filled journey of some of the tastiest cuisines Delhi has to offer. We were joined by a fellow foodie Mr. Richard Bennett.

First Stop - Majnu ka Tila

This place is a small Tibetan settlement in north Delhiand is jam-packed with some amazing eateries. At any given corner you will manage to find a person selling Laphing, a thick noodle dish that is either served cold or in a hot soup. Then for the most popular Tibetan snack, we landed at Ama Restaurant for the humble Momos.

Second Stop - Delhi University, North Campus

A day in the life of a DU student usually begins with a lip smacking cup of sweet sweet chai! And there is no place better than Sudama Tea Stall for some super strong and super sweet tea.

Then just because you're in Delhi, a plate of chhole bhature wouldn't hurt. We visited the most well-known places in the area - Chache di Hatti or popularly known as Chacha ke Chhole Bhature, for some incredible food.

Third Stop - Paharganj

Paharganj has a number of hidden eateries that serve amazing food. One of them is Brown Bread Bakery. They serve a variety of Indian, German, Italian, and Israeli cuisine. We tried the Israeli Thali which was like a mini mezze platter.

Fourth Stop - Connaught Place

Most Delhiites at least once in their lifetime would have visited the age-old bakery shop - Wengers. Running since the 1920s, this place is known for its outstanding patties, pastries, and cakes. We tried the melt-in-the-mouth shammi kabab and Rum pastry.

Fifth Stop- Meherchand Market

A little situated in this market is known for serving pizzas at super reasonable rates. We obviously went for the simple and tasty Margherita, a simple combination of dough, sauce, and cheese, just fantastic!

Sixth Stop - Defence Colony

We made a stop in Defence Colony because this is one place you just cannot miss, for some Indo-Lebanese food or simply put Shawarma. Concept Shawarma is a popular food joint serving

perfectly spiced shawarma rolls with dollops of mayonnaise and mint chutney.

Seventh Stop - Lajpat Nagar

Here we enter the little Kabul. We made a stop for some amazing Afghan Sambosa which are stuffed with minced meat. Unlike the Indian samosa, these are rectangular-shaped and topped off with sesame seeds. We also tried some fresh naan that baked in tandoor.

Eighth Stop - C.R. Park

A little stroll in C.R. Park can take you to the beautiful streets of Kolkata. We visited the fish market to see some of the freshest fish and a huge variety of it. Obviously, then we went on to

have some mishti doi. Finally, we ended our journey with a good old paan.
