Famous Places to Eat in Delhi

Park Baluchi
Although service gets the thumbs down, this enchanting, greenery-surrounded restaurant, set in the Deer Park, offers unusual barbecue dishes, such as banarasi seekh kabab (minced vegetables and cheese) or murg potli (flambĂ©ed marinated chicken breast and minced mutton). Avoid weekends if squealing kiddies get your goat.

Old Delhi still has the influence of Mughals with monuments, mosques and forts all through the complicated streets. Old bazaars and food are some of the specialties of Ol…
