Taking a brief break from Italy, but certainly not from eating ;) We were in Corbett a few days ago, for a family wedding, and we stopped over in Delhi for a day on our way back to Mumbai. Now, a day in Delhi is certainly not enough to do justice to the awesome food there, especially during winter. Delhi has a much better food scene than Mumbai (much as I hate to admit it), with interesting restaurants and cafes - new & old. But this time around, my agenda was to spend some time in Old Delhi, also known as Dilli 6 because of its pin code (110006).
I have visited Delhi so many times, but had never once ventured into Old Delhi, and it was high time to change that. We were staying near New Delhi Railway Station (more about that later), so we decided to take the metro to Chandni Chowk. Since it was our first time in the area, I had also crowdsourced some suggestions on where to eat. My main source of information was the lovely Pamela Timms who has penned an ode to Old Delhi's food - the eminently readable (and delectable) Korma, Kheer and Kismet. Here's what she suggested - bookmark for future reference!
Phew! That's quite a list. Read on to find out what we ate, and do scroll till the end of the post for a video walk-through in Delhi 6!
