I’ve been in Delhi for Five years now, and I must admit the journey so far has been pretty fantastic. Not just because of the homely feeling you experience in spite of surrounded by many different cultures on offer here, but also because of the constant surprises the city threw at me at every moment.
No matter what faith or religion you are born in, the charm of this city gives you an opportunity to experience every culture in the best way possible. With the Joy of this holiest Month of Ramadan the city is all set to welcome the fever of Eid –Al- Fitr. The entire schedule of the city is rewired to suit Ramadan Times. The food joints work from sunset to sunrise, making sure there is an appetizing array of food all night.
The festive time of Eid is here and I am sure many would celebrate it with family at home. But For those who are just like me a bachelor working far from home, don’t be sad, The Capital offers the best place to have a scrumptious meal on a festive day. Here are five places to enjoy!
Jama Masjid undeniably tops every list when it comes to having world’s most delicious kebabs, Ghosht, Khameeri roti and all the luscious Mughlai delicacies you can think of. Eid is the best time to Visit this place.
Try the upteem kabab points around the area and if you are not full, sit in one of the quaint restaurants which are serving the best food since ages. Al Jawahar and Karim’s are both very popular in their own sphere and one should not miss their Aloo Ghosht and Mutton Stew. Don’t forget to rejoice the festivity with Shahi Tukra and Phirni at the end.
To escape from the chaotic metro life, people from all walks of life visit Nizamuddin to seek solace and blessing of God. Hazrat Nizamuddin is the dargah of one of the world’s most famous Sufi saints, Nizamuddin Auliya.
Yes, this is the same dargah that is featured in our favorite song “Kun Faya Kun”.
Nizamuddin is also a hub to city’s best Biryani and mouth-watering Kababs.
You will also find a Kashmiri spread at Gulfam Kashmiri Wazwan where the Yakhni is a must try. Walk down the road that leads to the Dargah to find kabab and roasted chicken counters where people line up every evening. Ghalib Kabab Corner is one of the most well known of the lot.
Anyone and everyone in Delhi knows about the amazing Shawarma at Al Bake in the Community Center Market in New Friends Colony. The place is always crowded and you may have to wait for the order, but it is totally worth it. The joint is pocket-friendly and the creamy curd chutney will have you licking your fingers.
This Sufi style family restaurant in Hauz Khas Village is new but the serene ambiance is perfect for a family. Must have dishes are Galuoti Kabab, Raas Chicken Tikka, Kashmiri Gucchi Shorba and Lahori Mutton among others.
If we talk about Eid special food how can we miss Hyderabadi cuisine, Hyderabad house has some beautiful Kheema Lukmi (Mutton puffs) and Biryani but the specialty of this place is the Haleem. It is as close to the authentic Hyderabadi Haleem as you can have in Delhi. But do try the Qubani Ka Mitha – an apricot based dessert.
