1. Natraj Dahi Bhalla Wala

HolidayIQ Traveller Bharti Gupta says, “The Natraj chaat and dahi bhalle is a must! Everyone must try the dahi bhalla here atleast once in their life.”

The crowd at Natraj Dahi Bhalle Wala never ceases to end. Undoubtedly, it sells one of the best dahi bhalla’s in the city. Barely larger than a kiosk, this place has stood for decades, without a dip in quality.

2. Paranthewali Gali



HolidayIQ Traveller Chiku Sethiya says, “Paranthe wali gali is a must visit when in old Delhi. Food in Delhi is mouth watering. From spicy to sweet, from paranthe at the paranthe wali gali to lassi and lime water every taste is available.” HolidayIQ Traveller Rishi Jain suggests Babu Ram Paranthe.

3. Kake Di Hatti



HolidayIQ Traveller Rishi jain says, “ The dal makhni is jus awesome at Kake di Hatti.”

It is very difficult to find a seat there. The restaurant is a small daba at the end of Chandni Chowk. It is an experience in itself.

4. Karim’s Hotel



HolidayIQ Traveller Rakesh says, “For Biryani, go to Karim’s (Old Delhi) or Karim’s at Connaught place.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Rachit Kuchhal, “Karim’s is an ideal place for non-vegetarians.”

5. Roshan di Kulfi



HolidayIQ Traveller Vipin Rishiraj says recommends kulfi faluda at Roshan.

The kulfi, chana bhatura and their chaats are a must-try. Roshan di Kulfi is a must visit when in Karol Bagh, Delhi. The place offers some brilliant street food with delicious kulfis to satisfy your sweet tooth.

6. Amritsari Lassi Wala

HolidayIQ Traveller Shobit says, “Paratha wali gali, Kakke di haati, Amritsari lassi wala and lots of other food junctions in Chandni Chowk are a must visit. Just walk around the bussy streets and take a taste of India.”

The lassis at Amritsari Lassiwala traverse the entire spectrum – kesar, malai, mango, banana, almond, jeera, strawberry, even diet!

7. Old Famous Jalebi Wala



HolidayIQ Traveller Naveen says, “There is the old jalebi wala in Chandni Chowk that serves jalibis with thick rabri. This place has been serving delicious jalebis for ages; but for the uninitiated, Old Famous Jalebiwala is the place to visit to have the best jalebis in town.”

Old jalebi wala is a landmark address in itself and is located at the entrance of Dariba in Chandni Chowk, just near the Gurudwara.

8. Kuremal Mohanlal Kulfiwale

It might get a little difficult to locate the place but your efforts will prove worthwhile. It’s a legendary place. The ice creams and kulfis are fresh made without any essence. Cherish their ajneer, cream/rabri, mango and paan kulfis. Kulfis are available all throughout the year.

9. Al Jawahar



HolidayIQ Traveller Priyank Garg says, “Jama Masjid is one of the heritage places of Delhi and is located near Chandni Chowk Metro Station. If you want to have excellent chicken and non-veg food, then Jama Masjid is the right place. Best time to visit is during the lunch and of course, don’t consider the crowd when eating. You won’t enjoy.”
