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.
On our first evening on arrival in Delhi we met Shehnaz for our tour. Shehnaz was friendly, knowledgable and entertained us for the 3.5 hour tour.
The food was the main event on this tour, and we tried amazing food at places we would never have known about or been able to find without local knowledge. Shehnaz was proud to show off Old Delhi’s best food.
In addition we enjoyed multiple rickshaw rides which were a great and fun way to experience the streets of Old Delhi and the tour of the Sikh Temple which was very interesting to see.
We felt safe at all times and to answer everyone’s thoughts, the food was safe and 24 hours later we are fine!
A very enjoyable and different way to tour Old Delhi.
Thanks Stanley to show us Delhi. We enjoyed every single time of it. Such a nice person with lots of information and pleasure to tell us all about it. I certainly will recommend to friends as I was recommended by.
My friend and I went on this tour today and we were taken around by Saurabh. We had a fantastic experience trying all of the different kinds of street food. Saurabh was very friendly and knowledgeable and we would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine!
It was maybe my second or third day in Delhi, and my travel agency company planned this tour for me. I was by myself and was joined by a couple from Canada. We had an excellent time! We were guided by a younger girl, around my age 21/22. Right now I cannot think of her name, but she was amazing.
She gave us so much information, and knew the answers to all of our questions. I admired how much she knew and how much she loved her job! She took us through the metro, to so many food places that made me feel so welcomed. She took us to so a temple, to get dessert and to fill our tummies with such great street food.
I admired how she was able to tell us so much, introduce us to such excellent foods in such a short amount of time.
This is our best Tour in Delhi. It is exactly what tourists want – we want to experience something simple and very local. The tour guide Sagar is an outstanding guy, very professional and knowledgeable. He teaches us so many things about people and religions. The tour is very well designed, food are SAFE and excellent. Our kids also love it. Highly recommended, you can take this tour even with young kids.
