Tour guide:

Gajendra Singh Rathore

Calm, patient, and ridiculously knowledgeable about Indian cuisine, Gajendra is the man to know when you’re delving into Delhi’s food scene. He knows ever bylane, back alley and best places to eat in the Old Town. If you join him on his Delhi food tour, you’ll leave with a much deeper understanding of life in the capital. 

Let’s face it. For a first-timer, Delhi’s a culture shock. Don’t know your aloo tikkas from your dahi bhallas? Feeling out of your culinary comfort zone? Don't know where to eat in Delhi? Fear not. We’ve got just the ticket.

Old Town’s maze of backstreets and bylanes are filled with intoxicating smells emanating from curry joints, fry shops, tea stalls, and spice markets. Take our word for it, the food here is damn good… but not all are made equal.

Over 4 hours you’ll navigate Old Town’s maze hitting up its tastiest spots with your foodie expert Gajendra. Mop up creamy paneer tikka masala with freshly fired chapattis, pop bursting pani puris, nibble on chilli pakoras, and lick your lips after the best jalebi in India. That’s just for starters. There’s more food on this tour than you can shake your taste buds at.

It’s not all eat, eat, eat though. You’ll dive into a Sikh temple and kitchen to discover how they feed 30,000 Delhiites every single day and climb up to a secret rooftop spot above the old spice market to take in the views just as the sun drops to the right angle for photographic perfection.

You can ask Gajendra anything on his Delhi food tour. He’ll even demystify the enigmatic Indian head wobble. That’s worth it alone, right?

*Oh, hi there veggies, this one's definitely for you. As this is India, this tour is 100% vegetarian and 200% delicious.

**Street food vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every tour will be the same, but fear not, the day will always be packed with good stuff.
