These 5 Food Bhavans Can Give Fine Dining Restaurants a Run For Their Money!
Before reading this post, must read the master post on Places to visit in Delhi: Dilli Darshan.
Going out to eat is an experience which everyone loves. However, the one thing everyone complains about is the pocket pinch. We’re talking about the common people of course. Not the ones carrying Louis Vuitton clutches, interchanging clothes from Prada and Gucci as frequently as drinking water!
If you’re in Delhi craving food and willing to try different cuisines but have a budget; the various state-run Bhavans would be your best bet. Here are a few of our favourites.
The Andhra Bhavan canteen is always crowded, believe me. Either go early before the lunch hour rush begins or after 2.30 pm when the crowds begin to disperse. With the set-course unlimited vegetarian thali (meal) you can choose to add mutton, chicken or prawn. Everyone is served rice, roti, various vegetables, lentils, yoghurt and a sweet. The entire experience is just divine.
Can’t visit Kerala? Why not try authentic food at the Kerala House staff canteen? You can walk to Jantar Mantar Road from the Rajiv Chowk metro station and then tuck into a hearty meal of brown rice with sambar and seasonal vegetables. And the best part is, it’s super pocket-friendly!
3. Nagaland House
Love pork? Visit Nagaland House for the ribs. The spices are just right and the meat is sinful. You can have the rice and lentils served with a helping of boiled vegetables along with the famous fish chutney (made with dried fish, tomatoes, chillies and secret spices), but it’s the pork which makes the meal unforgettable.
Recommended: Pork Ribs
Cost For Two: Rs 500
Address: Aurangzeb Road, Delhi
Missing the Goa beaches? I can’t promise you the beach view, but Goa Niwas in Chanakyapuri serves authentic Goan food which will take your taste buds down memory lane.
When in Chanakyapuri, try out Assam Bhavan for a traditional taste of Assamese cuisine. The thalis are a must-have. For the a la carte-minded, do try their chicken and fish specialities. You will not be disappointed!
These are only a few examples. There are plenty of other state-run Bhavans to try out. For instance, the Banga Bhavan (for the typical Bengali food lover), Jammu and Kashmir House, Maharashtra Sadan, Tamil Nadhu Bhavan, Orissa Bhavan (a must for crab lovers) and Sikkim House.
So go ahead. Eat without feeling the pinch. With great food at such reasonable rates, what’s stopping you?
