“I went on the Delhi Food Walk Tour in June 2015. It was an amazing experience being able to try many local dishes under the guidance of a local expert. It is an interesting and informative way to learn about local food and eat along the way. My guide, Konika, was just terrific. I had the pleasure of being on an earlier tour with her so it was like catching up with a friend. She explained all the dishes in great detail and also information about the area we were in and the local food culture. As a solo traveller, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it to others. Come hungry, you will get plenty to eat as you go.”

“Excellent guide. Lots of good food. And good conversation”

This delicious Delhi food tour begins with a bit of local culture. Hop on a cycle rickshaw, one of the most colourful methods of transportation in Delhi, and pass through the city’s picturesque colleges and universities, stopping at an ancient Hanuman temple.

After visiting the temple, we head out to our first food stop and witness how fresh local shawarma (kebab) is made. From here, we’ll continue on to an iconic neighbourhood eatery that is popular with everyone, including students from nearby colleges. Here, you can enjoy a local favourite – fresh fruit beer – as well as momos (dumplings) and banta, a delicious lemon-based drink that’s an ideal refreshment for hot Delhi weather.

We then continue through the Kamla Market and emerge into a narrow alley full of delectable street food joints. This lane is a great spot for photographers and food lovers alike, and here’s where we’ll sample several local delicacies like golgappas and bhelpuri. Yum!

After sampling nearly everything we possibly can, walk it off through some beautiful nearby markets, admiring everything including the work of a local henna painter. Just when you didn’t think it possible, we’ll find more food! Sample some crispy potatoes, pao bhajji, and stop for the best homemade ice cream in Delhi, kulfi-falooda.

A little more walking through the bustling, fascinating streets of Delhi will lead us to our final stop – a sweet shop, where we’ll have the opportunity to try some fresh samosa, gulab jamun, and Jalebi.

This delectable Delhi tour will leave you very satisfied and an aficionado of Delhi’s best local food, which you’ll be craving long after you leave this enigmatic city.
