Chandni Chowk Trail: The Most Famous Foods From The Oldest Shops You Must Try


The street food of Delhi is synonymous with Chandni Chowk. You get the most authentic and delicious street food in those bilens, you probably won’t find anywhere else in town. All of our friends and family from other cities are bringing Chandni Chowk visits to their programs. For you and your guests, we’ve brought you a stop-by-stop crusade in Chandni Chowk that you can follow to get the most out of your trip there. We’re talking about the oldest shops in the area (over 100 years old) still selling the most lip-smacking Delhi-style food you won’t find anywhere else. As these are a legacy and a true Delhi resident, you should try these shops at least once.

As soon as you reach Chandni Chowk, just visit Dariba Kalan, a market famous for its jewelry but also offers some delicious food. Start your Canopy Chalk Street Food Trail from there.

Chandni Chalk is a must try place:

1. Old Famous Jalebi Wala – Dariba Kalan:

This jalebi shop is more than 200 years old but their jalebi is still as popular today as it was then. Their large size, juicy and sweet jalebis will make you crave more for this pleasure.

Jalebi is a very favorite Indian dessert.

2. Afterwards Wali Wali Gali:

After serving the delicious jalebi, go to Parantha Wali Gali to get those fried, satisfying parathas from the string of the shop there. Take the prantha of ordinary potato or cheese or go for unusual food like rabari paratha or papad paratha. There are about 60 different options to choose from.

3. Natraj Dahi Valla Corner – Opposite Parante Wali Gali:

You can’t go to Chandni Chowk and come back without licking the leaves. Go to Natraj for the most crispy tikki for Dahi Bhalla or Alu Tikki, or both. These are made with drum-worthy sweet yogurt and are also garnished with anna chutney and banana pieces.

4. Gole Hatti – Fatehpuri:

Partha from Wali Gali to Fatehpuri. If you like Chhola Kulche and eat it regularly, you will forget all other places after eating it from Gol Hatti. Special lentils contain almost no oil but a heavenly flavor with a pair of soft, spongy kulchas.

5. Gianni’s The Hatty – Khari Baoli:

And just a few steps further, this gem is in Khari Baoli – the largest spice market in Asia. Gianni de Hatti is the undisputed winner for the best rabi faluda sale. The heart-warming taste has not changed a bit since they opened the shop and it still wins the hearts of Delhiites. You should know that this is Gianni’s first outlet in Delhi.

6. Kake Di Hatti – Khari Baoli:

The place is famous for its authentic North Indian cuisine. We recommend combining their potato cheese with nan palak cheese. It’s so delicious that you’ll keep going back for more.
