    What to Expect
    This delicious Delhi food tour begins with a bit of local culture. Hop on a cycle rickshaw, one of the most colourful methods of transportation in Delhi, and pass through the city’s picturesque colleges and universities, stopping at an ancient Hanuman temple.

    After visiting the temple, we head out to our first food stop and witness how fresh local shawarma (kebab) is made. From here, we’ll continue on to an iconic neighbourhood eatery that is popular with everyone, including students from nearby colleges. Here, you can enjoy a local favourite – fresh fruit beer – as well as momos (dumplings) and banta, a delicious lemon-based drink that’s an ideal refreshment for hot Delhi weather.

    We then continue through the Kamla Market and emerge into a narrow alley full of delectable street food joints. This lane is a great spot for photographers and food lovers alike, and here’s where we’ll sample several local delicacies like golgappas and bhelpuri. Yum!

    After sampling nearly everything we possibly can, walk it off through some beautiful nearby markets, admiring everything including the work of a local henna painter. Just when you didn’t think it possible, we’ll find more food! Sample some crispy potatoes, pao bhajji, and stop for the best homemade ice cream in Delhi, kulfi-falooda.

    A little more walking through the bustling, fascinating streets of Delhi will lead us to our final stop – a sweet shop, where we’ll have the opportunity to try some fresh samosa, gulab jamun, and Jalebi.

    This delectable Delhi tour will leave you very satisfied and an aficionado of Delhi’s best local food, which you’ll be craving long after you leave this enigmatic city.

    • Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour: Kamla Nagar is a local Delhi market which had the potential of attracting tourists, but local tour companies never took the initiative to introduce foreign visitors to the market. Urban Adventures were the first to do so and all the food vendors we support are local vendors who were introduced to the world of tourism by us.
    • The bhelpuri vendor you visit was selected as one of the top 3 nominees for Urban Adventures' streetfood50 award and he was so proud to be associated with us as his life story and struggles were appreciated and recognised by Urban Adventures.
    • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travelers
