When you have an off from Office, it's not necessary to go somewhere out station if you are living in Delhi and especially if you are a food lover and that's what I did on 23rd December 2018, did a food tour in Chandni Chowk to try food at some of the famous and old places running since 19th century.

The food spots here are ample many but I found some as they make a complete meal for you, also are nearby Chandni Chowk metro station and are really easy to reach by walking. For all these food spots, you need to exit from Gate no.3 Chandni chowk metro station present on Yellow line metro of New Delhi.

5 best places to eat in Chandni Chowk:

1. Natraj Dahi Bhalla

It's a common street food, you will find at many places, but people always come here whenever they are in Old Delhi area. For those who don't know, the shop has been around for over 80 years i.e running since 1940.

2. Jung Bahadur Kachori Wala
 
The Best Kachori you can have in Delhi, started way back in 1971. They serve variety of kachoris of which you can opt for. It is closed on Sundays so I couldn't visit on that day.

4. OLD FAMOUS JALEBIWALA

What to have: Jalebi with Rabri

5. DAULAT KI CHAAT
