Vikaspuri isn’t the most sought after food destination, but given the eateries we just visited, it definitely should be. Here are some places to look up when you’re in the area.

PS – If you’re commuting by the metro, hop off at Janakpuri West or Vikaspuri.

Almost a decade old, Momos Express has been successfully delivering the best momos in Vikaspuri for a while now. Their gravy momos are the best, and along with a variety of steamed, fried and gravy momos, they also serve popular Chinjabi fare from their petite shack.

Monika Cafe

Contrary to the name, this isn’t a café. There is no seating arrangement and no home delivery. What they do have, however, is the best chhole bhature in Vikaspuri {or perhaps all of west Delhi}. They are so famous that you may even have to wait up to two hours on Sundays. They also serve aloo puri and chhole puri, but are mainly known for their paneer bhaturas.
