The immediate thing that comes to our mind, the moment we think of Jama Masjid is the grandeur of the Mughal legacy, the charisma of the magnificent monument and has the Best Restaurants near Jama Masjid with the series of Kabab and Biryani restaurants located in the narrow lanes of ‘Gali Kababian’. The little sweet little piquant aroma and the succulent chicken leg pieces displayed outside the stalls as if pull us towards them.
Many consider Karim’s to be the best among all the other restaurants in Jama Masjid. Karim’s is undoubtedly one of the oldest restaurants in Jama Masjid, but, trust me, Jama Masjid is a treasure trove for all the food-lovers and to be specific ‘animal-lovers’, like me. From Aslam Chicken to Qureshi’s Kabab to Al Jawahar’s Chicken Changezi, this is the best place to satisfy your canine cravings. Want to know which one you should visit the next time you will go through the trail of restaurants in Jama Masjid? Check out the list below.
Qureshi Kabab Corner:
DO NOT miss the beef kabab rolls of Qureshi Kabab Corner. A piece of beef seekh kabab wrapped in a rumali roti with green chutney and onions on side comes for Rs. 25 only. They serve chicken kababs as well but I would suggest you to go for their beef kabab. Their kababs are so soft that it almost melts in your mouth the moment you take a bite. It is very easy to locate it. Walk towards the Lal Quila from gate no.1 of Jama Masjid, stop before the most crowded open kabab stall on your side. Voila! You have reached there. But do not go there before evening. It remains closed during the day.
Enter the lane opposite to gate no. 1. Walk for five minutes and you will come across a five-storeyed building on your left side and is also one of the Best Restaurants near Jama Masjid. The waiters here converse through walky-talkies. This fact will make it easier for you to locate it. It’s a bit hard to find a table immediately because the restaurant is almost always full. You may have to stand behind a couple eating and shamelessly wait for them to finish. But once you get a taste of their heavenly delicious malai chicken tikka, you will forget everything else. Half plate chicken pieces cooked in pure butter and roti comes for Rs. 200 only which you won’t be able to finish on your own.
Restaurant Al Jawahar:
Al Jawahar is located on the opposite lane of Jama Masjid’s main entrance and is one of the Best Restaurants near Jama Masjid. It is a bit on the costlier side. That is why I would suggest you to go there with a gang of friends. Order one plate of Chicken Changezi and rice. One plate of Chicken Changezi comes for around 600 bucks. Statutory warning: do not forget to order one bottle of cold drink each. To gulp down the little tangy and a lot spicy gravy, it will be a necessity. But I can assure you that the peppery hot gravy won’t stop you from taking another serving.
These are only a few glimpses of the food paradise that Jama Masjid is. It is a vast area and one of the oldest areas in Delhi having Best Restaurants near Jama Masjid. You will also get several appetizing dishes on the road itself.
