Hood Food: The Delhi Guide – 15 Places To Dine In & Around Khan Market

When the Capital was devoid of fancy malls, shopping arcades and Cyber Hubs (and Ansal Plaza was the craziest we’d done), one of Delhiites’ favorite hangout spots was Khan Market.

Synonymous with mod supermarkets and legate number plates, the swanky upmarket souk surrounded by equally, if not more, swanky areas like Lodi Road, Pandara Road and the likes, has been feeding the Capital’s imported whims and fancies, and it still does. And what’s a marketplace without joints to binge at? Here are 15 places to eat at when in or around Khan Market.
