Days with Food and Foodies

My beloved cousins came visiting from Mumbai over a weekend (almost a month back) and when I asked them what they wanted to do, they said they wanted to Eat and Shop. So, in four days that these self-proclaimed foodies were here, I made a list of places we would go and restaurants we would eat at. I had the most gargantuan task in my hand.

After much research I put up a list squeezing in all the things we would do in those 4days that they were here. Wanted them to have a ball of time..

Check out our journey as we decided to tingle our taste buds with some of Delhi’s best offerings. 

Day 1 – Day 1 started with sumptuous dinner at Burma Burma,Cyber Hub. Since, these girls had never been to the Mumbai one, we decided to take them there and boy, they loved it. Khao Suey was a winner amongst them apart from the steamed buns that are flavoured beautifully.

Here they come...

Day 2 – This day was dedicated for some girly time. We stepped out to visit the quintessential Dilli Haat where they shopped for souvenirs, knick-knacks etc. None of the food stalls appealed to them and since we were anyways planning to go to Connaught Place,  I decided to take them to Nizams. It is a quaint eatery serving some amazing curries and wraps. The curries were quite a revelation let me tell you. The spices were just right and the chicken pieces would just melt in the mouth. Our late lunch was truly worth the wait. We literally ate like pigs, so much so that eventually we had to skip dinner.

Not beer just good ol' Nimbu Pani 
Day 3 – This day was EPIC. It was a sunny day and we stepped out by 11 a.m to pay a visit to Sitaram Diwan Chand in Paharganj. This place is one of the oldest outlets in Delhi and very very famous for their Chhole Bhature. Since this item topped the list of must-haves for the girls, a trip was mandatory. It was my first time too and it was simply yummy and satiating. A must-visit for all.
Another showstopper of this day was this yummy dessert. Commonly known as Daulat ki Chaat (wondering how to explain), it is a creamy sweet froth garnished with khoya. It’s light, fluffy and flavourful. It was something I have never ever tasted in my life and was really surprised at how unique this dessert was.
Post this we went for a really lazy picnic where we clicked some fifty thousand pics and ate the trashiest junk ever. It was sublime.
Since it was a Saturday, we took the girls clubbing to one of the hippiest night club. We danced till our feets ached and ate till our stomachs gave up. This place is one of the well-known clubs and serve really amazing non veg platter and pizzas.

Day 4 – On the last day of the trip we we were super tired and woke up all groggy eyed. The day started with some aloo paranthas made by 'yours truly'. Since I had not cooked anything for them, I insisted on having breakfast at home. We left in the afternoon to visit Hauz Khas, which they obviously loved to bits but, decided to have dinner at the well-known Rajinderda Dhaba (dhaba food was also one of girl’s demands). 

These days went by in a blur and boy what fun we had. While I still regret that I couldn't get them to eat authentic samosas but, clearly it was one of the best weekends after I shifted to Delhi. It surely is great to have sisters.
