Food of Delhi

Delhi is a centre of heritage, architecture, history and power and what runs through its lifelines is the food here. Like in case of almost every other thing, in cuisine too, there is nothing that does not find a second home in the capital.
Delhi's food borrows flavors and elements from the past as well as from the various cultures, religions and livelihoods it sustains. You can try out the finest dining options here with countless choices in terms of cuisine, from Chinese, Continental, Thai, Mexican, Mughal to South Indian and a subtle dominance of North Indian and Punjabi preparations.
Another equally fine, mouth-watering and vibrant option that begins to define the food culture here is the street food. Delhi remains unseen until you have experienced the street food here. It'd be a futile effort to try and name the items, since there are countless colourful options out their all with simple legacies behind them. Walk through Old Delhi lanes to have some of the richest street foods you might ever find.
