Oh, there is so much more to Indian food than curry!
What better way to experience Indian culture than through a street food tour? 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 parathas, lassi 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 rickshaw. We will explore the largest spice market in Asia and stop to admire the imposing Jama Masjid.
Hope you’re hungry!
When in Delhi, eat as the Delhiites do. That means chole bature (fried, puffed bread paired with chickpea curry), parathas (Indian flatbread), dahi bhalla (fried flour balls covered in yogurt) and aloo chat (crispy, tangy, spicy potatoes)!
You can’t go to Old Delhi and not try jalebi from Jalebiwalla. Try this along with kheer (Indian rice pudding) and shahi tukda (bread soaked in milk and nuts, like bread pudding) and you will understand why Indians have a sweet tooth!
Get a great view of the hustle and bustle of the busy markets as we move between locations.
Enjoy this succulent chicken with a twist in chaotic Matia Mahal near the Jama Masjid, as cycle rickshaws and people pass by.
It was my second time in Delhi and wanted to roam old delhi at night,since i was travelling solo i decided to go for a food tour.I joined the 5 to 9pm tour with Shehnaz. From the metro ride to ensuring we get to our hotel safe after the tour, Shehnaz was an amazing guide.The tour is value for money and you get to see the buzy alleys of old delhi.I had a lot of fun.
We had a great time and saw a part of the city we could have never had experienced on our own. Delicious food and a wonderful host.
To walk down the old street
Was intrigued by the reviews and pictures from this tour but was afraid of getting sick. Took the plunge and had a tour with Vijay. It was the best! I tried food and went to back alley places I never would have checked out on my own. Though the focus was food, Vijay spent time explaining the history of the neighborhood. It was very exciting and delicious. I took the 5pm tour and got back to the hotel by 9pm. Didn’t get sick (so far, 24 hours later!).
Naresh was a great guide, lead us through the teeming streets of Old Delhi and managed to keep track of us all. Great way to try some food that you would not normally have tasted.
