7 Street Food Heavens in Delhi

You can’t leave Delhi without enjoying streets food of Delhi. The aroma od local dishes in the evening time you can’t resist to have some street food. There is no dearth of varieties. As it is the capital city of India, Delhi is complete cultural mix and same reflects in food.

Chole Bhature

The king of Street Food in India. Many diets are broken with just the thought of this luscious deep fried ball of wonder. The title for the best Chole Bhature is just slightly disputed in Delhi with the winner emerging as Sitaram Diwan Chand (Paharganj) followed very closely by Nagpal’s and Chache di hatti. The bhature in Sitaram are generously lined with paneer shreds and go perfectly with the delectably spicy chole.

Aalu Tikki and Chaat

Bittoo Tikki Wala who started as a cart seller now has franchises all over town. Thankfully, the crispy tikki doled out at these places remains standardised and is the perfect way to beat Delhi chill.


This little triangular piece of heaven is probably what keeps Delhi hearts beating. The best thing about it is that you get fabulous Samosas at carts across the city and its tough to pick a favourite but if hard pressed for a name, Munni Lal Halwai (Frontier Waale) Samosa Shop in Gole Market (earlier in Panchkuian) may win this one.

Kakori Kababs

Salim’s kababs win any day! Though many will disagree and say Khan chacha is better, it is a matter of great debate. Salim’s (earlier in Khan Market and now in Defence Colony Market) Kakori roll just melts in the mouth and you don’t even need to chew!


Momos are our answer to fancy dumplings in restaurants costing an arm and a leg. The charm of eating Momos at the Sikkim stall at Dilli Haat with the chilli sauce and fruit beer remains unbeatable. You can choose to have pork momos or chicken momos.

Mutton Patty

If you like the flaky pastry of a patty, the mutton patty at Wengers in CP is an experience in itself. The filling of mutton cooked to almost a paste like consistency is delicious and the patty flakes before you can even bite it.


Your street food journey in Delhi would be incomplete without the mention of Shawarmas. You could go around town, try all the options and make up your mind or you could do the smart thing, close your eyes and go straight to Al-Bake in New Friends Colony market.
