Romanticized with Durga Puja, singhadas and all things Bengali, Chittaranjan Park – aka CR Park – is easily Delhi’s own little City Of Joy. Apart from a huge fish market and street food hub, the place is also home to some exemplary eateries. Here are some of our favorites.
45, 46, & 47, Market 2, Chittaranjan Park, New Delhi-19 | 011 26277029; 011 26277129
It is hard to believe that this small eatery dishes out the best Bengali food in Delhi. They have a very small dine-in space and dhaba like ambience and also offer home delivery. You must try their Doi Mach and Chingri Malai Curry.
Grab a quick bite at Jana, the North Indian and Biryani place situated in the CR Park market. The place is a cozy nook so you might consider takeaway. Either way, you are in for a luscious treat complete with aromatic biryanis, tikkas and kebabs.
