Chawri Bazar Is Where The Best Jalebis In Town Are

7375 Interested |


Between buying second hand books from Nai Sarak and beating the summer heat, we chanced upon this iconic sweet shop close to the Chawri Bazaar metro station. Located in the narrow lanes of old Delhi, Standard Sweets is famous for its chole poori but you can’t leave this place without trying their mouth-watering jalebis.

Setting The Standards High Since Time Immemorial

This shop has been around for more than 50 years and as is the case with wine, they’re only getting better with passing time. Standard Sweets offers a variety of sinfully sweet, delectable Indian desserts like Sooji Halwa, Malpua, Balushahi and food of the gods, well, Indian gods – jalebis. Try their hot, mouth-watering jalebis prepared in desi ghee with a plate full of cold refreshing Rabri and you’ll know what a match made in heaven looks {and tastes} like. 

Need We Say More?

Be right back, busy looking for a substitute of this divine jalebi closer to home for when we can’t make it to Old Delhi every month.


Don’t forget to check out some stationery and second hand books at Nai Sarak which is just a few minutes walk from Standard Sweets.
