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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
Our tour guide, Kavita, was beyond incredible. She was sassy and outgoing and super attentive. She took us to all the best places, and we always got served quickly. She easily worked around me being vegan, so although I didn’t eat everything the others day, I still had most. Definitely vegetarian friendly, but unluckily milk is in most sweet things here.
I highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore old Delhi and try some delicious food. The food we tried at each stop was great, but even better was getting to experience Old Delhi with a knowledgeable and organized guide to help us. We wouldn’t have been able to navigate this hectic neighborhood without him! We also learned a bit about the food, the history, and current sites in Old Delhi.
We decided to take this tour after doing an early morning cycle tour of Mumbai with Reality Tours last year and once again, we weren’t disappointed. Our guide was Vijay and he was friendly, informative and good company. The major road works in old Delhi meant that it was even busier than usual, but we weaved our way through the narrow alleyways, stopping every so often to try some delicious food and took tuktuks at one point, My favourite food was the Dahi Bhalli but the rest were also delicious (I didn’t eat the fried chicken as I’m vegetarian). We finished with sweet treats near the mosque. There is loads to eat and the atmosphere is wonderful. A great way to spend a few hours and very good value.
Stanley, our guide, met us promptly, guided us expertly through subway crowds, dirt streets and excellent food in Old Delhi. I highly recommend this tour for the adventurous—not so much because of the food which was good and mostly identifiable (potatoes, yogurt, lentils, fried bread)—but because of the noise, the traffic and the press of people. It was our first day in India and quite a good introduction!
Absolutely loved the food tour, delicious bites to eat and great guided tour into old Delhi, I only had one afternoon in Delhi and I felt it was the perfect way to spend it.
Reejay our guide was excellent, so friendly spoke superb English and had a great sense of humour , he made the tour very enjoyable
