“FOOD” the most important thing for our daily survival. Every single person whether being a 5-year-old child or a 50-year-old person has a foodie inside him/her. The same is with the people of Delhi. Delhiites have some of the great food options but many of us didn’t even bother to go to a place that hasn’t yet received so-called good ratings. Keeping that apart for some time we won’t even go to a place that doesn’t have an air-conditioned sitting area. I was all set on an eating spree, visiting places where the menus, though not long, had cuisines that would stay in your mind for a time little longer than a life’s time.
1. TIPU SULTAN CHICKEN POINT
This not so big restaurant in the small lanes of Batla house serves the best taste of Chicken and Mutton. Having their shop located right in front of the Batla House bus stand, they have been serving the foodies of New Friends Colony for the last 3 decades. What could be seen as something different and interesting is its ever-changing menu. In other words, the delicacies to be prepared are totally dependent upon the chef’s preference. This, however, does not deter the customers to visit the place to have the mouth-watering cuisines, whatsoever. Undoubtedly the best biryani you can have at this place. If you live in the Batla House area, it is just not possible that you didn’t hear about the same. And if you don’t know about it, just visit Batla house and ask about Tipu Sultan chicken point and people will tell you the directions. Briyani lovers, do visit once! I suggest the Chicken Nehari with tawa roti.
Cost for two 350/-
- MALABAR RESTAURANT
The name itself suggests the South Indian touch. Yes, you are completely right, this restaurant with very clumsy space but an air conditioner fit inside the premises provides the best Kerala Biryani in the dist. This typical South Indian restaurant not only is reminiscent of South Indians but also a boon to the hungry bellies in the area. Their scrumptious Keralan food not only fulfills one’s stomach but also satisfies one’s hunger with its quantity.
Fluffy Appams, porotthas, chetinad chicken, and erachy fry and curry are awesome. Prawns are heavenly. Order from this place if you are close by. Difficult to visit the place due to its location in the interior lanes. I suggest the Spl. Malabar chicken biryani.
Cost for two 400/-
- THE KATHI’S
They said don’t waste food they have “fillings” inside them and these guys at the KATHI’s took it personally. Situated at the corners of the famous South Extension 2 market opposite of Mc Donald’s they have really stolen the limelight of every big name present in South Ex. They have the largest and the mouth-watering rolls for every hunger strike. Their fillings have feelings inside them. Every bite of the roll reminds of the mom’s taste and drives you down to lanes of a whole new world. This shop has all the ability to rule the world of Rolls in South Delhi. My personal favorite was Double egg chicken tandoori roll and the aloo roll.

- BIRYANI ISHQQ
The final destination to every biryani lover. Yes, you read it right, it’s my promise that you will definitely fall in love with the delicious and amazingly amazing Biryani’s. This 8-seater restaurant situated right outside Chhatarpur Metro Station is serving some of the most unique flavors of biryani since 1936. Having their roots from Lahore, the owner and his son run this shop very peacefully and passionately. Yes the price is bit hyped but every bite of the basmati rice will make your day and you won’t regret your decision of choosing them. It’s truly a paradise for biryani lovers. One try is a must. My suggestion would be the Shahi Murg Biryani and their own specialty Kesar Phirni.
Cost for two 600/-.
Let us now head to the most famous Satya Niketan area, I found some of the most unique way of servings and most different kind of restaurants. But I was amazed to know that the staff of this famous outlet serving the foodies of Delhi for a longer period of time is completely deaf and mute. Their uniqueness lies in the form of their service. No doubt their food tastes among the most mouth-watering delicacies around Delhi but they took my heart out with their owner’s saying, “Everyone is the same before him, so why should we discriminate between them”. Talking about the food, this restaurant will definitely leave you with sparkling eyes when you will get to taste their chef’s delectable food taste.
What to try? Please try everything here, everything here will make you happy.
