New Delhi: The festive time of Eid is here and many would celebrate it with family at home. For those who want to go out and have a scrumptious meal on the festive day here are five places to enjoy!
Jama Masjid: Definitely tops every list when it comes to having kebabs, ghosht, khameeri roti and all the delectable Mughlai delicacies you can think of. Try the umpteen kabab points around the area and if you are not full sit in one of the quaint restaurants. Al Jawahar and Karim's are both famous in their own right and no one should miss their Aloo Ghosht and Mutton stew. Fried chicken in spicy masalas and a dash of lemon. Finish your meal with Shahi tukra and/or phirni.
Nizamuddin: Another area where there are many amazing places to eat. You will find a Kashmiri spread at Gulfam Kashmiri Wazwan where the Yakhni is a must try. Walk down the road towards the Dargah to find umpteen kabab and roasted chicken counters where people line up every evening. Ghalib Kabab Corner is one of the most well known of the lot.
Al Bake: Anyone and everyone in Delhi knows about the amazing Shawarma at Al Bake in the Community Center Market in New Friends Colony. The place is always crowded and you may have to wait for the order, but it is totally worth it. The joint is pocket friendly and the creamy curd chutney will have you licking your fingers.
Raas: This sufi style family restaurant in Hauz Khas Village is new but the serene ambience is perfect for a family. Must have dishes are Galuoti Kabab, Raas Chicken Tikka, Kashmiri Gucchi Shorba and Lahori Mutton among others.
Hyderabad House: If we talk about Eid special food how can we miss Hyderabadi cuisine. Hyderabad house has some beautiful Kheema Lukmi (Mutton puffs) and Biryani but the speciality of this place is the Haleem. It is as close to the authentic Hyderabadi Haleem as you can have in Delhi. But do try the Qubani Ka Mitha - an apricot based dessert.
