Spare the Pocket: Where to Eat in Paharganj on a Budget

Saaniya posted on 19 January

The Shim Tur

Famous for their sushi and egg rolls on a budget, this rooftop cafe falls on our list of favourites in the chaotic lanes of Paharganj.  We’re recommending their Japchae Bap, a sumptuous dish of fried noodles and veggies on rice, as well as the Kim Bop {Korean sushi}.

Sam’s Café

A spot we’ve all heard of and possibly visited at one point or another, Sam’s makes for the perfect place to drop in to when you need a break from all the shopping. Sit in their rooftop section, take in the view {and if you’re lucky, good weather} and sample the Al Pollo pizza and the falafel. Starters are your best bet.

Everest Café

One of the few places in Delhi serving authentic Nepalese cuisine, feast on the Nepalese thali here. They have an intensive selection of teas as well, sip on any of them while browsing through the old Lonely Planets scattered everywhere.
