If you don’t eat to live but instead, live to eat, then my friend, you are a foodie. It is a given that you know the best places for literally every dish that exists and the quote ‘sharing is caring’ turns on the Gabbar inside you. Needless to say, you would happily travel miles just to taste that one dish, a city boasts of, and so here is a list of cities you must visit to taste the awesomeness it offers in terms of food.
How can we think about good food and do the blunder of not starting our list with the amazing Parathas, Parathe Wali Gali in Chandni Chowk has to offer. Apart from that, Delhi is the hub of North Indian dishes. FromSadar Bazar’s Cholle Bhature to Odeon’s Ice-Paan to the lip smacking Chaat of Lajpat Nagar, our very own Dilli, has it all.
Puchkas and Roshogullas are not food items. They are emotions. And we all know where to find the best ones. City of joy, as rightly called Kolkata does bring an ample amount of happiness with their amazing Jhal Murhi, Chanajor Garam and Ghughni at Park Street. you are a foodie, it serves the best fish dishes in India and the right place to try that would be at Ballygunge Place or Kasturi. A drive towards New Market will open gates to another doze of happiness in the form of sweets.
Gujarat may not cater to your alcohol needs (if you don’t have sources) but sure knows how to take care of your foodgasms. From Khakra, Fafda, Dhokla and Sev for our vegetarian you are a foodie and Mutton Samosas, Tandoori Chicken and Nihari for the non-vegetarian ones, Ahmedabad is a must visit and should be on your bucket list at this very second.
If you are a foodieThe amount of food that Chennai has to offer is so insane that counting it would be as stupid as counting the stars at night. An authentic Dosa, covered on a banana leaf is what every foodie desires but apart from that, Chennai serves the best Filter Coffee, Sundal, Mohinga and Kothu Parotta. Uthapam, Dosa and Rasam are the soul of South India and needless to say, are a must.
A big glass of Lassi combined with Amritsari Kulchas at the very famous Kesar Da Dhaba, and you are literally in heaven if you are a foodie. From the delectable Makke Di Roti and Sarso Da Saag to Gajar Ka Halwa with Kesar on top, Amritsar can easily be called a foodie’s delight.
Bom(bae), is not just the city of dreams. One drive around Juhu Beach will prove to you that it is in fact, you are a foodie the city of mouth-watering street food. Famous for its Vada Pav and Pav Bhaji (basically anything with the word pav), Mumbai will serve you the best of both worlds at the cheapest rate possible which is low-key expected considering the insane amount of rent people living there pay. The Dosas served outside Mithibai College and the Frankies outside H.R. College are highly recommended.
you are a foodie, it’s high time you pack your bags and head out for the amazing food these cities have to offer. After all, it has rightly been said by Virginia Woolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
