Connaught Place Food Tour

Connaught Place Food Tour - "The Hogathon"

Sambar and Uttapam Sambar and Uttapam © Delhi Food Adventure 2012

Delhi Food Adventure has launched a guided "Food Walk" or a "Culinary Tour" in Connaught Place. The aim of the tour is to enable tourists to taste the best of Delhi food and Indian delicacies in a single evening in a safe setting.

Connaught Place was so named after the Duke of Connaught who visited Delhi in 1921. It was later renamed to Rajiv Chowk after the late Indian Prime Minister - Rajiv Gandhi. Most Delhi-ites call it CP and so shall we. Connaught Place is a perfect place to shop, eat and drink and most tourists end up spending some time in this market.

I am giving one of the route itineraries - local Delhiites may try this route on their own. Even tourists can try this themselves. People on tight time-lines, concerned about exploring this area alone and looking for a friend to show them around may want to consider Booking a Walk with us

  • Embassy: Head down to Embassy and try out their Mutton Samosa. Don't have more than one-third on your own! There is much more to come and you don't want to be full.
  • Haldiram's: How can you visit Delhi and not try Raj Kachori (Royal Kachori) at Haldiram's! We won't let you - so lets head down to Haldiram's and order a Raj Kachori and a plate of Golgappas (Water Balls). Have no more than two golgappas per person.
  • Nizam's Kathi Kabab: Next up we go to Nizam's and order their double egg double mutton and double egg double chicken rolls. Don't have more than one-third.
  • Gola: Order one of the chicken or the lamb sizzler - to be shared by four along with a beer if you please.
  • @live: Or we can skip Gola beer and head to this restrobar brimming with live 80s music and have a beer here
  • Hotel Sarvana Bhavan: Take the long walk to Hotel Sarvana Bhavan - trust us when we say its worth it. Try Idly and Rava Masala Dosa.
  • Kwality: Next up we go for the best Chola Bhatura in Connaught Place.
  • Pind Balluchi: Not only they have an interesting village like ambiance - the food is also good! Try the Aam Panna (mango based drink), a plate of Dahi-ke -kebab (Yogurt filled Kebabs) and a few Kalmi Kebabas.
  • Bengali Market: Still some place left! Take a rickshaw to Bengali Market and finish your meal with a few Ras Gullas.


Take A Rickshaw back to the metro station and admire your appetite on the way back! Congratulations - you just completed the CP Hogathon. Do check out our Food Tour in Chandni Chowk as well.
