Hello everyone!
I was wondering if someone would be willing to do a street food tour in Delhi at the beggining of November (ideally on 2nd..)

We are looking for some foodie-Delhitee who could lead us through its favourite dhabas and stalls.. We are two persons (my french friend is obssesed with food and the more people will join the better We can finish the tour over drink too.

So if someone interested, please drop a line here or in my mail box.

All the best!
Jana

That sounds like a realy good thing to do. Unfortunatly im no where near India at the moment or I would be there! Hope you have fun and hope that some other people join you on what will be a great undertaking. And if you have to go it alone then do it anyway you will have a ball.

Hmmmmm......

Let's see where this thread goes. For a beginning, I'll post pics of some of the most famous food places in Old Delhi.

I am trying to search for these pics from my cache of photographs. I took these pictures on such a tour that I did with my friends some time back.

We started from Favvara in Chandni Chowk and took a circular route to reach Chandni Chowk Metro Station for our ride return home.

I shall try to post them by tommorrow.

aarosh,

This is not what I meant by street food. Your pics show real street food.

Unbelievable

..that you are sooo courageous.It would take most people being hungry for days before venturing in the world of food poisoning, & loose stools. I am so surprised you are not the least bit concerned about the very real & serious health risks to eating stall food.It is not only that westerners are not immune to the bacteria, not only that the sellers do not wash their hands after going to bathroom, not only lack of refrigeration but also the real concern of cheaper oils being used, which can cause immense & long standing problems.
My advise would be that if you at least are not worried about the almost certain problems, at least please do not tell everyone when you get back home.
My experience has been that if someone is adventurous, they should suffer the consequences of their actions in silence bcz it gives India a bad name & discourages more "sensible" tourist from visiting.I have never known anyone personally who had the guts to risk their lives for the sake of a few $ in eating at a clean establishments.I'd interested to know, how you have come up with this idea, could it be perhaps that you have not been warned? I realise that eating once may be like russian roulette & you could escape it but going on a food crawl is really asking for trouble, if you r not born there.Even they get the belly aches, but at least it doesnt spoil their short holidays.Good luck...you'll need it dear

Vivy It is true that food poisoning can be an issue but by following certain rules such as eating at busy places it is usualy avoided. I spent nine weeks in India last year, (my second trip), and was eating street food from moment one. It is one of the true joys of India and of the whole travel expieriance. I have never had any problems from street food nor has my wife and I would certainly encourage people to try it. The only time I ever had a problem was when a rickshaw driver took me to a "special western restaurant" in Agra. I stuck my fingers down my throat about half an hour after eating it as i already knew something was amiss. Any way hope you enjoy the tour which is a great idea and remember, You dont go to India to be Unadventurous!

I meant small outlets like Ved Bante wala, hole in wall eateries like Natraj Dahi Bhalla and tiny places like Sitaram Chhole Bhature wala...... I did not mean street side stalls.

@Yana07 - If you mean street side mobile food vendors like the one shown in pics in post # 8, I have no idea about them. To me they look risky.
