What better way to experience Indian culture than through an Old Delhi 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 Old Delhi’s street food, we will also do some sightseeing as we explore the largest spice market in Asia, take a stroll along Chandni Chowk and stop to admire the imposing Jama Masjid. We will absorb the hustle and bustle of the narrow streets as we visit different locations by rickshaw.
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.
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.
If you do have any serious allergies feel free to let us know at time of booking and do also let your guide know on tour so that certain foods may be avoided. The range of food on offer means there is plenty for everyone generally however.
Yes! The entire tour is vegetarian except for the last stop, during which you can use the time to soak up the atmosphere of the buzzing Matia Mahal neighborhood.
We’ll 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.
Yes we are fine welcoming children 12 years and over on our normal tour at the responsibility of an accompanying adult. For visitors with children less than 12 years, please get in touch in advance as we would recommend a private tour.
A private tour is for up to 6 people.
Absolutely. Please get in touch if you are the organizer of a group visit: email@example.com.
We provide both a day time tour and an evening tour. The stops may be slightly different but the day time tour is great for people who want to avoid the crowds. The streets of Old Delhi are much more crowded in the evening and the tour is perfect for people who want to soak up the atmosphere of Old Delhi’s chaos!
We needed to kill some time in Delhi so we signed up for this tour and it was amazing! We met with the guide Sagar by the subway station very easily. His English is excellent and he was a very engaging and entertaining guide. We rode the subway to our first stops – food was amazing – places we would never have found on our own. We took a couple of Tuk Tuks to get to other places which was a lot of fun. More treats to be had at other locations which were delicious. Overall we were really pleased with how this tour turned out. Great value for money, really interesting, informative, well organized. Can fully recommend! Thank you Sagar!
Stanley was an excellent tour guide. I was in India for two weeks and did several tours booked through TripAdvisor, and he was the best. He’s personable, knowledgeable, and reads the group well. He navigated the endless crowds well and waited for the group at appropriate times, which wasn’t my experience with most tour guides. The foods are delicious and unique! Absolutely recommend.
We had a fantastic time on this tour with Sagar. It was our first day of our India trip and was a great way to work out what food we like and see more of Delhi. Thoroughly recommend giving it a go. Sagar was very knowledgable, had a great English and was just a lovely guy!!
We absolutely LOVED this tour! Stanley was our guide and he was incredible, answered all our questions and gave us heaps of information about Delhi. The jalebi and the aloo chalat were delicious – as was all the food! Loved going to the spice market. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Delhi!
This is a must-do in Delhi. Our guide, Kavita, made us feel very comfortable traveling around Old Delhi and it was so neat trying traditional foods from restaurants that have been around for decades and some over a century! We felt that this was one of our more authentic experiences on our trip in India.
