Okhla Phase 3 is laid out over 100 acres, and is a modest industrial sector that houses various MNCs, call centres, BPO’s, showrooms and media group operations. Unlike Cyber Hub, this industrial sector does not have many dine-in cafés and restaurants, but relies solely on take-away joints and popular dhabas.

Next time you’re in Phase 3, here’s our recommendations for some great food.

Breakfast

Vikram Food Dhaba

Although Phase 3 is dotted with dhabas and small tea shops, Vikram’s dhaba stands out. Consider it the ideal place to grab the perfect cup of tea, seasoned with ginger, along with a fluffy omelette–bread, egg Maggi masala or gigantic home-style parathas with a dollop of butter to compliment it.

The must-have here is the Double Egg paratha and the popular savoury snack they prepare with chips, bhel, namkeen, onion, tomatoes and chillies. Vikram likes to call it ‘bhasad.
