Menu

Oh there is so much more to Indian food than curry!

Each region of India has its unique street food and Delhi is no exception. Visit our favorite vendors in Old Delhi and try the local specialties chole bature, dahi bhalla and aloo chat, as well as parathaslassi and the very sweet but delicious jalebis and the local equivalent of rice pudding and bread and butter pudding. 

All of these dishes are vegetarian but meat

eaters will have the option to try Indian fried chicken towards the end of the tour. Vegetarians, worry not: you can take the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the buzzing Matia Mahal neighborhood. 

In addition to sampling the best of Delhi’s street food, you will also learn about Delhi’s historic “Walled City.” We will absorb the hustle and bustle of the narrow streets as we

visit different locations by cycle rickshaw. We will explore the largest spice market in Asia and stop to admire the imposing Jama Masjid.

Hope you're hungry!

    Delhi Chaat (Snacks)

    When in Delhi, eat as the Delhiites do. That means chole bature, parathas, dahi bhalla and aloo chat!

    Indian Sweets

    You can’t go to Old Delhi and not try jalebi from Jalebiwalla. Try this along with kheer and shahi tukda and you will understand why Indians have a sweet tooth!

Testimonial

"We had a brilliant time on the tour, and the food was AMAZING! Pradeep was knowledgeable, friendly, fun and also had great English. We ventured into areas of Delhi we would not have done by ourselves, but Pradeep made us feel comfortable and safe the whole time. The tour was a real highlight of our holiday! Would recommend to everyone coming to Delhi. Thank you!"

Is street food hygienic and safe to eat?

Yes! Well, not always, but the vendors we have carefully selected are perfectly safe and hygienic (hundreds of happy guests and counting!). In fact, this is one of the main motivating factors in designing this tour: we wanted to make India’s incredible street food accessible to visitors.

Is there a lunchtime option?

We provide an evening tour as that is when the traditional street food areas of Delhi we visit on tour come alive and the stalls open. The tour does not really work as well earlier in the day therefore where opportunities are less and the atmosphere is lost.
