The night food walk begins at that poetic moment when all restaurants have shut for the day. it is at this moment that we scour the city for night food options. So apart from 24hour 5star coffee shops, what ideas does the city throw up for us? Hmm, not much really…!


We start with a study of the PVR Anupam complex in Saket, the site for Delhi’s first multiplex. PVR becomes a night hub with the presence of the convenience store 24×7, a night foodies hub for a post movie or hangout snack. Engage also with the juice-wallahs and paan vendors in the complex for your midnight cravings. Insomnia ahoy!


From here we drive to Nizamuddin. When the night is dark, all roads leads to Comesum, the 24 hour food plaza located at the Nizamuddin railway station. Join travellers for a quick bite, or hang out with the more leisurely, sometimes rowdy dilli-wallahs who have taken recourse to Comesum post that crazy drinking session or party. Comesum serves a pan Indian menu,  averagely executed but does have occasional highlights, like the Jodhpuri parantha. All in all, a great place for night anthropology in Delhi! Follow up with chai in Nizamuddin basti.


Movement three of the walk lands us in Pandara Road, a legendary night food epicentre. “Mughlai” restaurants abound in this governmental enclave. We do a quick survey of these and fulfil our romantic night hunger with some delicious kulfi.
