Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience. Delhi is considered the food capital of India and is known throughout the country for its delectable food and drink. This delicious Delhi food tour begins with a bit of local culture. Hop on a cycle rickshaw, one of the most colorful methods of transportation in Delhi, and pass through the city’s picturesque colleges and universities. After visiting the temple, you head out to your first food stop and see how fresh local shawarma (kebab) is made. From here, you continue on to an iconic neighborhood eatery that is popular with everyone, including students from nearby colleges. Here, you can enjoy a local favorite – fresh fruit beer – as well as momos (dumplings) and banta, a delicious lemon-based drink that’s an ideal refreshment for hot Delhi weather. You then continue through the Kamla Market and emerge into a narrow alley full of delectable street food joints. This lane is a great spot for photographers and food lovers alike, and here’s where you sample several local delicacies like "paneertikka", "golgappas", "bhelpuri", "paavbhaji", and "chuski". Yum! After sampling nearly everything you possibly can, walk it off through some beautiful nearby markets, admiring everything including the work of a local henna painter. You’ll sample some crispy potatoes and stop for the best homemade ice cream in Delhi, "kulfi-falooda". A little more walking through the bustling, fascinating streets of Delhi will lead you to your final stop – a sweet shop, where you have the opportunity to try some fresh "samosa", "rabdi", "gulab jamun", and sweet flavored milk. This delectable Delhi food tour will leave you very satisfied and an aficionado of Delhi’s best local food, which you’ll be craving long after you leave this enigmatic city.

An excellent introduction to Delhi

Our guides Sachin and Lalit were interested and interesting to be with on this excellent tour. They introduced us to street food in Delhi which was somewhat a revelation. Tasty and totally different and most importantly for the delicate Western ill effect whatsoever. Would recommend anyone to do do it. We only arrived that afternoon from UK and it was a baptism into Indian life.
