Delhi - it’s a crazy place! Amidst the fast-paced life that the city has to offer, deep down, we are all fighting to find the right things to eat. I’ve grown up here in this big city, and I can safely say that apart from India Gate and Qutub Minar, Delhi is most famous for its zaikedaar street food.


Read on to find the best street food places in Delhi. 


Big fan of shawarmas? Looks like we found you the perfect street food joint in Delhi. Score about five shawarma rolls in a little thing they call the shawarma box, and that too, for nominal prices.


Also try: Afghani Chicken, Mutton Tikka Roll, Chicken Biryani and my personal favourite, Chicken Shawarma


If you’re willing to explore the lanes of Lajpat Nagar, ending up at Dolma Aunty Momos is inevitable. This street food joint has the best chilli chutney in Delhi along with a delicious variety of good ol' momos, moong dal ladoos and desi noodles. 


If I were you, I'd definitely try: Chicken Momos, Gravy Momos, and Vegetable Spring Roll. 


No, you're not a true Delhizen until you've gorged on Sita Ram's lip-smacking chole bhature. One of the best street food joints in Delhi, this Punjabi restaurant lies in the ever-so-crowded alleys of Paharganj serving the most wonderful breakfast dish with lassi and rice on the side. 


In the midst of the most popular shopping hub of Delhi, resides a street food restaurant that specializes in kulfis. But that's not all. The eatery is also known to serve everything from our favourite street food to delicious South Indian dishes, tandoori snacks and lassis. Ever in Karol Bagh, their Kesar Pista Falooda Kulfi, gol gappe, Aloo Tikki with Chana, Achaari chaamp and Badam Milk are the best. 


Move over Murthal-famous parathas, we have the OG parathawala, right here in D-town. Located just under the Moolchand flyover, this street food place win hearts by serving delish naan parathas all-day long. It's one of the most convenient and affordable breakfast joints you have to try today. Now even though their Aloo Pyaaz Chur Chur naans are the best, I also don't mind trying the Chicken Keema, Methi Matar, and Paneer Pyaaz versions. 


This list of amazing street food in Delhi is incomplete without Al Bake's zesty shawarmas. Located at the heart of New Friends Colony Market, this eatery is packed with meat lovers and foodies alike. From mind-blowing shawarmas to rolls, biryani and curries, the outlet is the best non-veg restaurant in Delhi you can go for evening snacks and full-on dinner. 


Must try: Chicken Shawarma, Garlic Kebabas, Chicken Nihari, and Mutton Korma


Here's a food outlet almost as old as Dilli. Established back in 1913 by Haji Karimuddin, one of Mohammed Aziz's, a cook in the royal court of the Mughal Emperor, son, KARIM'S in Jama Masjid is one of the best non-veg restaurants in Delhi. Their kebabs are to die for and their mutton nihari is a stuff of dreams. 


Must try: Chicken Jahangir, Reshmi Kebab, Badam Pasanda, and of course, Karim-special rolls. 


We have street food at every nook and cranny of Delhi. Yes, even in the poshest areas of the city. One of the most popular street food joints of GK M-Block market, this little shop serves the yummiest pans in the capital. They also offer juices, shakes and itsy-bitsy snacks like chaats.
