Su Real is an Indian musician with a strong passion for cannabis. When asked about his favourite Dehli street food munchies, his list included some pretty great options. If you find yourself visiting Dehli this year, even without cannabis, knowledge of quality places to eat can definitely enhance your trip.
Here we highlight some of Su Real’s favorite restaurants and cafes to visit while strolling through the great city of Dehli. With a good proportion of meals and desserts, this list should satisfy a large range of munchies.
With a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5 and a certificate of excellence, this cafe has a reputation for offering up some pretty incredible dishes. For munchie satisfaction, try the Keema Pav, Palak Patta Chaat, Apple Cinnamon Jalebi with Coconut Rabdi, and the Bhapa Doi Cheesecake.
A quaint little restaurant in the Hauz Khas Village, Barsoom is a stoner’s friendly eatery as most of the dish sizes are much larger than normal. The recommended munchies are the Mezze Platters, Mini-Lamb Burgers, and the Nutella Crepe.
Although gelato is known for its saturated fat and sugar, with over 100-degree weather and a little cannabis, it is definitely a match made in heaven. Favorites are the Hazelnut & Swiss Chocolate Gelato.
Qureshi Kabob Corner
“Extremely popular amongst locals in the area, once upon a time the tables and chairs surrounding this tiny dhaba stretched on and on as cars created traffic jams lining up for take-away. Go for any of their rolls – the mutton tikka is my favorite – or if you really need to feast, their Chicken Korma is beyond par and will likely shut down all bodily functions for a few hours! For snacking, their plates of seekh kebabs and chicken tikka are just delish.” – Su-Real
Recommended munchies include the Mutton Tikka Rolls, Seekh Kababs, Chicken Tikka, and Chicken Korma.
For those Chinese and Japanese food cravings, Dai Itchi has you covered with authentic meals that have stood the test of time. Being one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Dehli, locals have often considered it the gold standard for its category. Favourite dishes are the Special Mix Non-Veg ‘Friend’ Rice, and the Lamb Manchurian.
