One of the oldest shops in Old Delhi, Kallan Sweets is a proprietor of mouth-watering desserts, especially their beautiful orange paneer jalebi. Oozing with sweetness, there is little that matches up to this flavour in the entire city. You can also try their khoya and keema samosa for variety.

Al Jawahar Restaurant

Al-Jawahar has been in the food business since 1948, named after the former Prime Minister of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru, who inaugurated the restaurant. Run by the fourth generation of the same family, Al Jawahar satiates Ramzan cravings with mughlai delicacies like chicken jahangir, nihari and paya.

Aslam Chicken Corner

Much loved for its own interpretation of butter chicken, Aslam Chicken Corner is a favourite among the patrons of the walled city. Marinated in a special gravy, Aslam’s chicken dishes always steal the show, especially during Ramzan, and they also offer chicken seekh kebab and fish tikka.

As the name rightly suggests, Cool Point sells the best shahi tukda in Old Delhi. Operational since over a quarter of a century, Cool Point’s shahi tukda is prepared in desi ghee and dipped in thick cream and sugar syrup before being served. Keep an eye out for their kesar milk as well as vanilla ice cream.

In a narrow lane near Jama Masjid, Karim’s has been delighting Delhiites for over a century. Established in 1913, it is arguably Delhi’s most iconic culinary destination. Enjoy the mutton korma, chicken burna and phirni in addition to a plethora of non-veg options.
