25 Street Food Spots In Delhi For The Yummiest Street Sin

You can either love it or hate it but you cannot ignore it. Such is Delhi’s street food, or any street food for that matter. Let’s be real, how can you not notice a kilometer wide frying pan sizzling with food enough to feed an entire district? Call it unhealthy, call it fattening and call it cardiac diseases on a platter but at the end of the day you will give in and ask the vendor for some extra chutney.

Think Delhi street food, think Lajpat Nagar, Chandni Chowk, Chawri Bazaar and West Delhi. But where exactly? Here. These 25 spots in Delhi define the Capital’s street food.
