They are not for calorie counters or picky eaters, but culinary adventurers seeking an intoxicating mix of flavour and atmosphere.

Natraj Dahi Bhalla Wala

The constant crowds milling outside this tiny eatery testify to its tremendous popularity. There are only two dishes on the menu—dahi bhalla and aloo tikki—both spiced to perfection

Review : The constant crowds milling outside this tiny eatery testify to its tremendous popularity. There are only two dishes on the menu—dahi bhalla and aloo tikki—both spiced to perfection. The crisp tikkis are served with two kinds of chutney (coriander and tamarind), while the crumbly bhalla is also accompanied with cooling curd. Both are excellent appetisers for Old Delhi’s other lip-smacking fare. Grab your plate, find a spot on the pavement outside the stall, and get ready for culinary epiphany.

Old & Famous Jalebiwala

Situated at the northern end of Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Chandni Chowk, this age-old sweet shop dishes out the juiciest jalebis in the city.

Jalebi

Review : Situated at the northern end of Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Chandni Chowk, this age-old sweet shop dishes out the juiciest jalebis in the city. Unlike the regular crunchy versions available in the other parts of the city, these jalebis are thick, large and soft. After being fried in pure ghee, they are dipped in a blend of sugar syrup and spices. The delicious samosas come with potato or pea filling, and are a perfect antidote to the sweet jalebis.

Paranthewali Gali

Branching off from one end of Chandni Chowk, this narrow alley is lined with several small eateries of which Pandit Kanhaiyalal Durga Prasad Paranthe Wale is the best. The deep fried paranthas are stuffed with regular fillings like peas, radish and lentils as well as quirky ones like lemon, tomato, banana and sweet rabri, and accompanied by spicy potato curry, pickles and chutneys.

Kake Di Hatti

Vegetarians need not feel left out during a Chandni Chowk outing. They should simply head to Kake di Hatti for its lip-smacking north Indian fare. The pick of the menu is the vast range of mammoth naans stuffed with everything from green chillies, garlic, soya, cheese and capsicum, to sugar, radish, potato and cauliflower. These are also a good non-greasy alternative to Paranthewali Gali’s deep fried breads

Kuremal Mohanlal Kulfiwale

You know an eatery has pedigree when it’s been in business for over a century. Started in 1908, this hole in the wall shop in Sitaram Bazaar is famed for its kulfis, available in regular flavours like kesar-pista, rabri and cream as well as some genuinely fruity versions. The flavours vary according to the season: try orange, custard apple, sapodilla (chikoo) and pomegranate in winter, and mango, rose and tamarind in summer. The piece de resistance is the stuffed mango kulfi, in which the fruit pulp is replaced with kulfi.
