Delhi is known for its excellent food culture. Due to fusion with migrants from India and from outside the country, one can eat food from different regions. Initially, it was known for the street-food culture like papdi-chat, golgappas and paranthas but now one can find Rajasthani, Chinese, Italian, Korean and South Indian dishes. Delhi provides food for different budgets and tastes.

One can go for morning breakfast with paranthas at Chandni Chowk or with authentic South Indian at Sagar Ratna. For those who are interested in Continental, Old Coffee House at Connaught Place is the best option. It is best to finish breakfast with a glass of lemon-water of jal-jeera sold by vendors across Delhi.
