India is the food Walhalla. We had the chance to try hundreds of dishes and were never bored while we lived there. Our favorites were Indian friends or their family-cooked homemade dishes that were presumably passed down from generation to generation. This is where dishes built on centuries-old recettes can still be found.

The abundance of popular food jaunts offered in Delhi hold us blind from small restaurants which have their own food revolution. No matter how hard we try, you certainly skip those restaurants. We then decided to take some of these secret food treasures that we bet you didn’t know about and dive into the region’s gastronomic underbelly.

We bring you the Hidden Food in Delhi: 8 Delicacies you will savor for life

Vietnamese Embassy Canteen

Where: Where: 17, Kautilya Marg, Malcha, Chanakyapuri

Vietnamese Embassy

If you are searching for authentically Vietnamese cuisine in Delhi, There’s is no better spot for visiting than the Chanakyapuri Vietnamese Embassy. Only on Fridays is the cantina open to the public, and the candy is only open for two hours between 12.30 p. m. and 14.30 p. m. However, this is more than sufficient to fulfill your “Pho” and “Che” wishes. Every meal they serve has well-balanced aromas and oozes freshness. From Nem (frozen spring rolls) to Bun Cha (grilled pork and noodles). The rates are still fairly rational.

You can easily get a bite, stand around 7-8 tables, or take a packed meal with you.

You would be craving for all the dishes, including dosa varieties, uttapam, idli, vada, sambhar, and rice. For comprehensive menu items, you can link to my photos. Filter coffee must be mentioned particularly because it’s a rare thing.
