You won’t find most of these places on Zomato. So take this list seriously, especially when the weekend is here, and you’ll obviously be craving for some cheap bites in the dead of the night after partying at expensive bars and nightclubs. Here are the top 5 inexpensive places in Delhi/NCR that are open throughout the night:
Here are the top 5 inexpensive places in Delhi/NCR that are open throughout the night:
Rajma chawal near Shivaji Stadium
There are a couple of nameless places here that have only now started serving almost every dish in the book, but it originally became popular for the fantastic rajma chawal it serves beyond midnight. This place remains extremely crowded during weekends till 3 or 4 am because everyone is partying late in the proximity.
How much: Rs. 200 for 2
Where: Right beside the main bus stop of Connaught Place.
Paranthas under the Naraina Flyover
Probably the most sure-shot eating option in Delhi, if hunger pangs have hit you in the night. Several parantha options – keema, aaloo, paneer, mix, gobhi, egg and what not – all under one roof (rather a flyover) at throwaway prices. They are yummy and delivered right to your parked cars with dollops of butter on top.
How much: Rs. 100 for 2
Where: When coming from the Dhaula Kuan side, don’t take the flyover to bypass Naraina. Take the straight road on the left instead. 500 meters further, you will notice the commotion yourself.
Paranthas at AIIMS Metro Station
There are two big reasons why food is available throughout the night near AIIMS. One, a lot of not very well-to-do people use the station to get their ailing relatives admitted to AIIMS, and because they don’t have sufficient money to stay in hotels they spend their nights sleeping on the stairs of the AIIMS Metro Station. These cheap food stalls are paradise for those guys, and as well as for the rest of Delhi. Two, AIIMS is a landmark in Delhi.
How much: Rs. 80 for 2.
Where: AIIMS Metro Station, Gate No. 3.
Convergys Dhaba, DLF Cyber City
Following the previous point, this dhaba also exists because of the presence of a lot of MNCs in the proximity. All call centre employees work according to GMT, and that means that their dinner timings are way past midnight. Mukesh Dhaba (popularly known as the Convergys Dhaba) is a legendary outlet serving proper meals all throughout the night there.
How much: Rs. 150 for 2
Where: Right adjacent to the huge Convergys building.
Chai-Maggi at HUDA City Center Metro Station
Now that the famous Delhi winters have almost arrived at the doors, most of us would crave random cups of tea after midnight during the weekends. If you’re feeling like a long drive, then the hawkers right outside HUDA City Center Metro Station serve great chai and Maggi all through the night.
How much: Rs. 60 for 2.
Where: HUDA City Center Metro’s Main Gate 1
