What’s that one thing that Delhi is famous for? If you were about to say food, then we say, you’re ABSOLUTELY right ‘cause when it comes to food, there’s no other place like Delhi and we’re super duper proud of this. But what makes us fall in love with this place, even more, is the fact that even with a gazillion new places popping up every day, Dilliwalas still scamper over to the oldies. If you, too, find yourself gorging on Sita Ram’s Chole Bhature or mutton from Karim’s, then this list is tailor-made for you!
Pssst... - Some of these places might be closed at the moment given the current scenario, so it’s best to call up the restaurant before you decide to drop-by!

If you find yourself strolling in the streets of CP (which you will), then scamper here and stuff your faces with their super yum sandwiches!
