Take a culinary journey through Old Delhi with an experienced foodie guide who will show you the city and the best food.
12 delicious tastings of food and drinks
Walk through the labyrinth of Old Delhi
Visit to a 24-hour Sikh cuisine that feeds more than 30,000 people every day
The tour starts at 12 noon outside Chandni Chowk Metro Gate 5, where you will be greeted by your Foodie Guide. Nothing should be done without blessing, so the first stop in a Hindu temple is the right time for the day. Start your culinary journey with a small bowl of soaked vadas covered with creamy yoghurt and covered with pomegranate seeds, something you won't see in any Indian snack at home.
During a walk with your guide he will tell you about local life and give you an insight into the foodie scene in Old Delhi. In quick succession, you grab a clay cup with a sweet, foamy mass before working your way over the finest jalebi in India. While you are resting, you will walk into a huge Sikh temple and take a tour of its 24-hour cuisine, which feeds over 30,000 Delhites from all walks of life every day. Try to make chapattis and stir huge pots big enough to feed an army.
Now it's time to jump into the labyrinth of Old Delhi. Your guide will take you for a stroll through the narrow alleys, carefully passing cows, bicycle rickshaws and small merchants. They stop to taste delicacies such as pani puris, tasty pakoras and stuffed parathas from a small place that has been producing them for almost a century. If you travel in winter, you might even try a Delhi speciality - a white, mousse-like dish covered with saffron and nuts, often described as fluffy as a cloud.
Your guide will take you up the steps to a secret little restaurant that has no sign outside to try one of the best Masala curries in town before it is washed down with a Masala lime soda nearby. Continue through the winding alleys until you reach the fragrant spice market. After a walk and a conversation about the spices and herbs used in Indian cuisine, walk a few secret steps up to a magnificent roof overlooking the spice market and the rest of Delhi. Take time to relax, take pictures and drink tea brought to the roof by a local chaiwalla.
The final stage of the tour will include a variety of desserts, including a carrot halva and a traditional vermicelli mogul dish covered with a creamy layer of nuts. On the way back to Chandni Chowk Metro your guide will make a paan - a beta leaf filled with dried fruits, syrups and other good things. The perfect end to your foodie adventure in Delhi.
