Delhi has the best food. Period! From Mughlai to Momos, Chole Bhatoore to Shawarma, name it and Delhi has the best.
The best place for Mughlai street food is definitely Chandni Chowk. Though it comes with its share of crowd and chaos in congested lanes but it is beyond doubt another world to explore. Try Al Jawahar for Biryani, Karims for Rolls and visit paratha wali gali to eat parathas of stuff you couldn’t imagine.
Not many people will tell you but do try momos in Delhi if you spot a vendor. If they have tandoori or gravy momos, do try!
