Famous Eating Joints in Jama Masjid
During Ramzan, Old Delhi becomes a paradise for Food Freaks. There are many eating joints (small and big) in the bustling lane opposite Jama Masjid-Bazar Matia Mahal which serves you the authentic Mughlai specialties, which cannot be found anywhere else. Here is the list of few eateries in Jama Masjid, where you can find the best feast during the month of Ramzan.
Karim’s, the restaurant is not just popular in Delhi, but in fact, is world renowned. This iconic restaurant is right at the beginning of the main market. Karim’s offers the great and royal Mughlai dishes with great taste and a pretty wide variety to choose from. For one of the best Mughlai experience please visit Karim’s. This place is a treat for people who appreciate authentic Non- vegetarian recipes.
Al Jawahar is the place to go to if you are looking for authentic Mughlai food. Al Jawahar has an extensive menu for meat lovers. The recipes and spice secrets are believed to have been passed down over generations. The restaurant has spacious seating, unlike other eating joints in Jama Masjid. The place is best known for biryani and kebabs of all forms.
Haji Mohammad Hussain’s
Haji Muhammad Hussain’s specializes in fried dishes only. A couple of shops away from Al Jawahar, is one of the best places to have fried chicken and fish immensely. They serve their dishes with special authentic chutney made of a masala that is probably their own discovery and loads of onions, which can put your mouth on fire. During Ramzan, they also serve Keema Golis (minced meat rounds served with onions). If you reach here around Iftar time, you’ll manage to get your hands on them.
Nihari at Bilal
The Nihari at Bilal is so sublime that it’s absolutely worth elbowing your way to get here. Don’t even think of wriggling out of the tasting trail without getting yourself a plateful of Nihari with Moti Roti. The meat is slow-cooked for hours which make it delicate and tender. It is then simmered in gravy with spices and garnished with a squeeze of lime and green chilies. It was polished off in a matter of minutes. We’ll say no more, you have to go and experience it yourself.
If you are looking for authentic sweet and dessert then you should try this place. The cool point serves hot Shahi Tukda and cold rabdi on the top of it makes it sweeter and makes your taste buds jizzle around from hot to cold. Golden fried slices of bread simmered in milk and topped with khoya and desi ghee made our lips curl into a smile every time we tucked in a bite. If you are a sweet tooth this place is heaven for you.
Gud ka Sharbat at Pahadi Imli
The chilled Gur ka Sharbat is one of the drinks that you can enjoy anytime without really worrying about the repercussions. The sharbat is basically jaggery soaked in ice-cold water, strained and served. If you haven’t got a chance to have the best Gur ka Sharbat, then Aqeel Ahmed’s small set up in Jama Masjid, Old Delhi is the perfect place to relish the refreshing Gur Ka Sharbat.
