The Battle Is On: Here Are 4 Things That Make Delhi Better Than Mumbai

Grace posted on 25 January

We’ve all found ourselves in the middle of a debate about whether Delhi is better or Mumbai but not anymore, guys! We found 5 things that will settle the debate, for once and all:

All The Street Food

While Mumbai has vada pav, Delhi has a variety of street food for all weathers, moods and even locations. Go to Paharganj for Sita Ram ke chhole bhature, visit Lajpat Nagar’s Dolma aunty for steaming momos, enter the lanes of Chandni Chowk for a heavy dose of paranthas {gotta try their offbeat fillings like neembu, dry fruits and rabri} at Babu Ram Paranthewale or gorge on jalebis from Nathu’s and this is just a tiny glimpse! We all have our favorite places that serve delicious stuff at the most affordable prices.

Delhi Aces Street Shopping

No one can even touch Delhi when it comes to the street shopping game. Mumbai may have Colaba Causeway or even Linking Road, but those markets don’t have even half the variety you find in Delhi’s street market. Go to Janpath for amazing stoles for as low as INR 60, rush to Sarojini Nagar to stock up your wardrobe for as low as INR 2000 and go to Lajpat Nagar to get some quirky jewellery starting at INR 30.

    A Monument At Every Turn? We Got It

    Delhi has been built, destroyed and rebuilt so many times in the past that every corner you turn, you will find a history lesson in the form of a monument. While on your way to Hauz Khas Village to party {Hauz Khas Fort}, on a morning jog {Lodhi Garden’s Gumbads} or when you’re out to enjoy some street food in Old Delhi {Red Fort}, you will find Delhi’s past merged with its present in every nook and corner you visit. This city can never run out of stories or monuments.

      BYOB Places For Our Cash Crunches

      We all know that Delhi is more pcoket-friendly than Mumbai. That’s why when we all go a little broke, we just buy our own alcohol and push to one of the various BYOB places in Gurgaon {Outback, Terminal 1 and more!} These ahaatas are open till late in the night and make sure you never miss out on the fun even if you’re broke.
