It may be considered mainstream to follow the crowd, but there are some places that are popular for a reason. Eating at such places and killing your taste-buds over and over again is considered to be totally worth it. For students studying in North Campus, the places listed below are some of the best eating joints they can find.
1. Faculty of Chaat (Arts)
Did you happen to smell sambhar during your last lecture? And was the tiffin carrying it licked clean by the time you reached? Fikar not! Begin a hunt for food. On your way to Patel Chest crossing, beyond the University Hostel for Women, is a brand new canteen from IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) in Faculty of Arts. You’ll get a variety of shakes to choose from while you wait for the thali, idli sambhar, or chhole bhature that you ordered. Finish it off with a lovely fruit chaat and your taste-buds will thank you for an eternity!
2. The Gwyer Hall Canteen
Begin by getting off at the Civil Lines Metro Station situated on the yellow line; hire a rickshaw till Gywer Hall which is located at Jubilee Hall lane, near Kamla Nehru Ridge. The canteen here offers one of the biggest menus one can find. Studded with various North Indian delicacies, thalis, paranthas (do not miss out on their specialty – the Meetha Parantha), and regular snacks like samosas, patties or pakoras, this place is truly a heaven for all foodies out there.
3. The IP College Canteen
Every college in Delhi University holds a certain reputation about their canteen; IP College for Women is one of them. It happens to have one of those canteens that’ll make you drool the minute you get a whiff of its food. It is majorly famous for its rajma chawal, kathi rolls and the Chinese food that you can find on its menu. The food here is so good, that it makes most boys wish they were girls.
4. Delhi School of Economics Canteen
The DCE canteen is bound to impress you with it’s out of the box menu. Their mutton dosa is enought to make you fall in love! Their mutton cutlets, masala coke, egg curry rice and rajma chawal are among other favourites that won’t burn a hole in your pockets. Plus, if you’re absolutely broke and left with about thirty bucks, you could get their thali worth 25 rupees and still have 5 bucks left for an ice-cream!
5. Momos, Tikkis, Chaats and MORE
Along Bunglow Road, if you walk towards the crossroads, you’d find a momo shop in the corner on your left. The outstanding taste of the momos served here is bound to add this shop to that list of your favourite spots. If you were to walk a little further into the market, your chaat cravings will be a thing of the past – all thanks to Bitto Tikki Wala! It is an absolute haven.
If you are a foodie and you love to explore new eating joints, start your day early and take the first metro towards north campus. A day that starts with a good morning chai from Suresh Tea Stall located in the DDA market at Hudson Lane should end with a Gulaab jamun or two from Aggarwal Sweet Corner for sure. Bon Appetit!
