It’s no secret that the LBB team loves food and orders in almost on a daily basis {even if we’ve got dabbas}. With our headquarters having recently shifted close to AIIMS, we had to scour our surrounding areas for our daily dose of happiness. Here’s where we order from all the time.

Mizo Diner

Our standard order from Mizo Diner is the Fried Rice and Stir Fried Chicken with seasonal vegetables. You could also opt for their noodle bowls infused with lentil and fish broth. Or the special north-eastern thalis. Be warned though, they’re not shy with spice. And everything is sent with a small packet of green chilli chutney and cut onions doused in red chilli powder.

This one’s for all those Chinjabi cravings. From chilli chicken to tingmo to pan fried noodles with pork, chicken and vegetable gravies, and momo, and a recent discovery, the Chow Chow {instant noodles infused with spices and vegetables}, Freedom Corner’s ideal for when you need comfort food at prices that don’t pinch. However, we’d suggest skipping this place if you have a super sensitive tummy.

We know you’ve all been to Chili’s for drinking sessions {margaritas FTW} and baby back ribs; when you’re super hungry, their Chipotle Rice Bowl and the Quesadilla Explosion Salad come as blessings. Both come in cottage cheese and grilled chicken variants, and come with a bunch of accompaniments such as sour cream and Chipotle sauce. Their packaging’s great and we always get our lunch hot.

Cafe Rock ‘n’ Rolla


Cafe Rock ‘n’ Rolla is a find we’re very proud of. A small cafe hidden away in Arjun Nagar, it has some gorgeous wraps, sandwiches, burritos, burgers and quesadillas. We especially recommend the Porky Cheese Quesadilla, Rosemary Lamb Burger and Mango Chutney Ham Sandwich. Yum.

We love the doughnuts at Dunkin’ Donuts, but we love their burgers equally. Chief among these are the Heaven Can Wait, Potato Hash Brown and Original Tough Guy Chicken. Pair these with their potent cold coffee and a Chocolate Cake doughnut and you’re set.

For all idli, dosa and vada needs, Karnataka proves to be a hero. Go with the Mysore Masala Dosa or the Idli Plates and you’ll be safe. Their delish chutneys deserve special mention.

Generous portions {each plate can serve two, easily}, microwaveable packaging and online ordering– Happy Hakka knows how to keep us happy.
