Are you guys tired of your regular routine? All those tasks that you hate the most and still have to do unwillingly? When you wake up but you’re still in the bed, lost deep in your illusions that it’s another day with the same boring routine – getting reprimanded for average performance at the office, studies and life. You know you are running that race of life, where your work always races ahead of your desires, where you can’t waste even a single second.. Then I’ll suggest you to just “forget your race” infact “leave it”. No, No, No I’m not saying leave it forever, but just for a while. You know that you are stressed and to get over this, you actually need a break. But the trick is in finding an efficient way to do it.
Getting on a tour or a party? No way! You really don’t need to spend shit loads of money and time, as these both need to be spent judiciously. The best way to relax your mind and regain the magic of willingness (creativity + happiness) is always near you – FOOD!

I can even bet that whenever you’ll pass through this street again you’ll surely remember that taste and want to experience the same once again.
Paranthe are so popular in Delhi that even a street – “Paranthe Wali Gali” is named after it, with paranthas of various flavours.

This plate full of chaat will leave you satiated.

“Chache Di Hatti” is the best spot for a foodie and hence is filled with masses of Delhi University students. I think when it’s about taste, none of us likes to compromise! If you ask me – “where to find the best Chhole Bhature in Delhi?”, I’ll only say “Chache Di Hatti”. Their fluffy stuffed bhature and spicy chhole will strike your mind first. I have been eating it since forever and I really can’t get over it. So just try it once for unending flavours of Indian spices.

Once when you take a look at capital wide open “King’s Kulfis” menu, you’ll find yourself confused.
