Putting together a list of only five must eat at places for any part of Delhi is a difficult task. Talk to any Dilliwala about where to eat and he will probably tell you 20 places in 2 mins by memory!
GK M block market in South Delhi is hub of world-class brand stores, local vendors, fine dining restaurants and fashion thrift stores. A walk through the market is a journey of discovery- in many ways a gastronomical one that you will not forget easily. From sophisticated multi cuisine restaurants to the roadside kiosks, this one has something for everyone.
Don’t be surprised if you catch burqa clad Gucci carrying women, hassled parking assistants, roadside vendors, swanky tourists, swarm of Punjabi aunties as well as the DU crowd thronging on the same roadside food stalls here. We bring you the ultimate round up of the must eat street food places in GK that are representative of Dilli’s personality: casual, cheap and full of flavour!
1. Mahesh Chaat Bhandar
Ever since they made it to the Kapoor wedding, Dilliwalas love to queue up for the golgappas at this tiny shop. Waiting in the queue you may hear “the prices are astronomical” or “are all of these people really waiting for chaat??” However living in Delhi, I have come to love this place.
Not To Miss: Golgappas (Rs.30) and Palak papdi chaat (Rs.70)
2. Aunty Special Momos
Tiny little kiosk next to Prince Pan is Aunty Special Momos. Melida, a Manipuri lady now fronts this small counter which has been here for last 13 years.
Not To Miss: Anything!! Aunty can make a mix plate on special request with one of each type of momos.
3. Prince Paan Nimbu Paani
While you enjoy the really hot chutney that comes with these momos, grab a glass of fresh lime soda from Prince Paan Nimbu Paani (not to be confused with Prince ‘Pan’, the place known for chocolate pan) . Nothing beats the heat as this pimped up version of our very own banta. The sweet-sour taste completely refreshes you in the scorching heat. They recently launched packaged version of their Nimbu Paani that lasts upto 3 months for Rs. 20 only!
Not To Miss: Nimbu Paani (rs.30) and Khus (Rs. 40)
4. Brown Sugar Sandwiches
For a more serious hunger pang, head to Brown Sugar and enjoy their wide range of sandwiches in various kinds of breads that, true to their tagline, are sure to get you addicted! Although they offer a variety of other snacks, desserts and coolers, sandwiches here a sure shot filling and yummy meal.
Not To Miss: Pizza ‘n’ Cheese (Rs. 110) and Chicken ‘n’ Jalapenos (Rs. 130) sandwiches
5. Prince Pan Bhandar
Finally, end this long walk with the famous Prince Pan corner. This place leaves you craving for more with its various types of pans- Ice cool, butterscotch pan, strawberry pan, just relax pan, meetha pan and pan ki chaat; the most popular one being the chocolate pan.
Not To Miss: the Chocolate pan (Rs. 30)
