Calling All Foodies: 8 Great Eateries In Safdarjung That Are NOT Rajinder Da Dhaba

Safdarjung has been one of our favourite haunts over the years and it’s quickly becoming a hub for all places quirky, innovative and delicious! In the winter, it only gets more beautiful as it overlooks the deer park and if you're looking for a whole new experience APART from the already-done-and-dusted Rajinder Da Dhaba, do visit this charming locale. Here’s a quick walk through through some of our favourite spots and favourite dishes here!

1. 6 Degrees

Whether you’re craving some sweet, syrup-filled waffles or cheesy bites of a perfect pizza, Six Degree is the one-stop place for quick satisfaction of your hunger pangs. They have an amazing menu which offers basically everything you’d want from all of your favourite cafes. The rates are super affordable and while they don’t offer the most comfortable seating, the small tables set up outdoors are perfect for the light November chill. They stay open till midnight, so drop by for a late night snack and defo try their Chicken Shawarma Roll and Nutella Waffles!

2. Tossin Pizza

One of our favourite haunts for classic Italian food, Tossin Pizza goes beyond the basic recipes to give you a true-blue authentic experience. With a crazy long menu, they’ve got plenty of options for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian foodies. Their Peri Peri Pizzas are known for being heavenly and they do a perfect set of mocktails to accompany your meal. The ambience is bright, cheerful and has us hopping back here all the time! They stay open till 3 AM *YASS* so definitely come here after a mad night of partying and get your pizza fix!

3. Freedom Corner

Craving a quick bite of Chinese? Freedom Corner serves Chinese food just as us Delhi Walas like it. Greasy, spicy, tangy and flavourful! Although the ambience is dingy, we think it adds to the charm of the place and we’ve yet to find a better place around for noodles and momos, that’s for sure. The Chinese Five Spices Chicken is a unique dish that this place has to offer and the Pork Momos have a lot of takers!

Meal For Two | Rs 600

4. The Hungry Monkey

The Hungry Monkey is one step ahead of all the other clubs and lounges in the city. Along with some great music and ambience, their food is to die for! The regulars here recommend the Chicken Slider and Bomb Burger and their cocktails menu has plenty to offer - we especially love their Moscow Mule, and it goes beyond the usual mixes, which is always a plus. The staff is professional and courteous so don’t hesitate to drop by here, with a special date or even a large group!

5. Kori’s

We’re always on the hunt for places serving new cuisines in town and with so few options for Korean food, Kori’s is a true delight! They have a beautiful range of Korean dishes such as Kimbab (Korean Sushi), Ramen and Bibimbap. If you drop by, don’t leave without trying the Kimchi Jjigae and Rice which comes with a delicious, spicy soup and assorted Korean side dishes. They also serve the regular fast food dishes and some wholesome shakes to accompany the yummy food dished out here, so drop by sometime!

We promise you won’t be disappointed with the aromatic pizzas and fresh, well-seasoned salads found here. If you’re too full for a meal, their desserts are a must-try for their perfection and uniqueness. Their Hot Chocolate Fudge melts in your mouth perfectly and the Creme Brulee is basically gastronomic bliss!
