Karim's in old Delhi

Delhi is the food capital of India. The variety available here is mind-boggling and the street food is just yummy.

 

In a short series, I shall mention some eateries that are popular now, but were popular before India got its independence. Karim's is one of these famous establishments.

 Located near the big mosque Jama Masjid in old Delhi, this non-vegetarian restaurant shall achieve a centenary of existence when next year dawns.

 

Mentioned in almost all guidebooks and known to every Delhi resident, this restaurant dishes out finger licking nonvegetarian fare.

 

Its forte is Mughlai food. The tandoori Murgh (chicken) and the tandoori burra (goat meat) have been consistently served since inception.

 

 

Don't expect the interiors to be classy - actually they are quite tacky. The food is rich and most of the times well prepared.

 

Karim has many franchises now, but none can match the freshness or the taste of this establishment.

 

Reach the steps of Jama Masjid and just opposite those steps is an narrow very busy road. Enter the road and within 50 feet, on the left-hand side, you shall spot the name sign. The actual restaurant space split into many chambers and there are few other chambers which belong to other restaurants. Can be quite confusing, if you go there expecting an impressive restaurant.

 

This is about 30 min ride from this Delhi guest house
