Over 3 and a half hours, we will experience life in this very beautiful & fascinating part of the city and visit several food-joints that you won't find in typical guidebooks! We'll start with the famous sugar dripping Jalebis and an insight into how they're made. Then we'll navigate our way through the quaint narrow lanes to reach a long-forgotten 17'th century 'Haveli' (Mansion) ruined but still reminiscing the Mughal era. Now we'll enter into the most colourful & buzziest 'Bazaar' of Old Delhi to visit a 90-years-old shop dedicated exclusively to 'Khurchan' (a mouth-watering dessert prepared from fresh buffalo's milk). After a little exploration of the beautiful Bazaar, we'll taste different varieties of Parathas in the famous 'Parathe Wali Gali'. Now it's time to involve ourselves in the community kitchen of an ancient Sikh Gurudwara after which we will explore Asia's largest spice market and taste a combination of the best 'Chole Bhature' (a famous North Indian dish) and 'Lassi' (buttermilk) prepared in Old Delhi. We'll experience the tranquility offered by a quick stroll in the Fatehpuri Masjid after the craziness of Chandni Chowk and at last visit, a secret rooftop with the best panoramic views of the area & click some marvelous photos. The exquisite flavor of the food and delicate aroma of the spices will surely blow away your mind!
