Before reading this post, must read the master post on Places to visit in Delhi: Dilli Darshan 

We all have vegetarian friends who claim that when it comes to veg biryanis, they just can’t have enough. But deep down inside, even they know that the sorry excuse of a dish they’re referring to as ‘Biryani’ is actually just plain old veg pulao. 

Now that we’ve put this out there as a fact and have settled all arguments on this topic till the end of time, let’s talk about some places which serve AUTHENTIC biryanis that’ll give you a high like no drug or drink ever can.
