Sunaina posted on 29 June

If you’re done gallivanting at the malls and are looking for a budget friendly option to gorge on food, we can help you out.

Here are eight eateries you can chose from, to satiate your hunger while in Vasant Kunj.

The Village Cafe

This cafe is situated in the busy streets of Vasant Kunj, right opposite Fortis hospital. It’s a a sweet little cosy nook to hang out at, with your friends. You can also order food to your home from here, in case you don’t feel like stepping out.

What To Eat: Try their rajma rice. It’s quite homely. We would not recommend their sandwiches though. For dessert lovers, their butterscotch pancakes and waffles with vanilla ice-cream are a must.

Price: INR 700 {approx} for two

Ananya Foods

This place is a hidden gem in Vasant Kunj. They have North India, South India and Chinese on their menu. It’s a small little delivery place that does meals through thalis exceptionally well. So if you’re looking for something more wholesome {and on a regular basis}, strike a deal with them for a daily thali meal.

What To Eat: Order their North Indian Thali, which actually tastes like ghar ka khaana. They have a rotating menu which includes three rotis, dal, a gravy, some veggies, salad and dessert.

Price: INR 400 {approx} for two

Parathas N More

Parathas N More is perfect to catch a late night vegetarian bite, if you’re up and about. They’re open till 4am and serve some delicious parathas…and more. The place is beautifully lit up with fairy lights and you can sprawl on a bean bag and share a hookah or two.

What To Eat: We would highly recommend their garlic cheese parathas. A bit heavy on the stomach but tastes divine! Their rajma is done in a green gravy and is rather delicious. Wash it all down with their cold coffee.

Price: INR 600 {approx} for two

Tea And Gossip

Looking at some time to unwind and sit around with your friends and gossip over some freshly brewed chai? Well, head to Tea & Gossip, situated right next to Nanking and spend some fresh quality time. With warm and soothing blue walls and painted colourful chairs, this place makes for a calm oasis with great chai and desserts aplenty. They have a super internet connection. So if you ever feel like working out of a cafe that serves some amazing Chinese tea, this is the place.

What To Eat: Do try their Peanut Butter Nutella Sandwich and gorge on their Walnut Cake with caramel fudge. From the teas, their Chinese tea collection is stellar and although we didn’t try it ourselves, they highly recommend their masala chai.

Fab Cafe

Fab Cafe, Fab India- Vasant Kunj’s new addition is doing some great health food. Their decor is minimal but endearing with their indigo cotton cushions, big windows and plants placed all over. If you’re not in a mood to eat something heavy, Fab Cafe has some light, delectable food options and they use jaggery as a healthy substitute for sugar.

What To Eat: We love their lotus stem tikki chaat, red rice poha, Quinao roti and their kathal biryani. Try their gluten free coconut chocolate cake. Their aam panna makes for a perfect summer chiller drink.

Price: INR 1,200 {approx} for two

Hawkers- Vasant Vatika

Hawkers is a tiny Chinese food truck in Vasant Kunj C block that the locals swear by, especially for the quantity of their portions. All you gotta do is drive down to this van {we assure you there is ample parking space} and order away while sitting in your car. They get a lot of crowd in the evenings, so make sure you find your spot, before someone else does.

What To Eat: We usually binge on their Mangolian chicken with their chilli garlic noodles. Their honey chilli potatoes are worth a try too. If you’re not too hungry, go for their steamed chicken momos.

Flaming Chilli Pepper

This place is great for takeaways and home deliveries {they do have a fine dining space too}. Their deliveries are quick {in case you’re super hungry} and their food is surely a winner. Their Italian cuisine is the best so far but their Indian veg and non-veg platters will do justice to your hunger too.

What To Eat: Go for their lasagnas for sure. Apart from that, their dal makhani and mutton rogan josh is surely something you should try.
