These Stalls In Qutub Institutional Area Serve Epic Keema Paratha, Hot Soup & Momo

1733 Interested |


Come nightfall and Qutub Institutional area comes alive with hordes of people making a beeline for dhaba food. Menus in the area offer some of the best parathas in town, soups, momos, Maggi and milky chai and coffee.

What Makes It Awesome

Although all the dhabas along the road have pretty much have the same menu, our personal favourite remains the one with a giant poster of Ranbir Kapoor dining at the same place—he really did—hanging over the plastic chairs and tables. This is where you’ll find us sprawled on a cold winter-y night or a rainy day.

At one of the star attractions here is Laxman Fast Food. Their parathas are huge, crispy, stuffed with your choice of filling, and served with a large cube of white butter mint chutney and sliced onions. We’re loyal to the keema and the chicken, but you could also try the aloo, the gobhi or the pyaaz. They also happen to be the size of the steel plate they’re served in, but they’re so delish that we always end up devouring at least two.

You can find places with delicious hot and sour soup in the area too. It’s the perfect mix of spice and vegetables to make you feel satiated without feeling bloated. We’d however save this one for December onwards. You can also indulge in some good ol’ Maggi infused with onions, chillies, cheese and chicken chunks (as per your preference) or a good serving of momo at Sethi Fast Food.

What Could Be Better

It would be nice if they could have a couple of floor fans around their seating area to help with the heat in summer.


These dhabas are open throughout the day and remain open till 1am, which is when the place really livens up. We’d recommend stopping by here for a midnight snack.
