Five Fast Food Joints in Delhi University

Are you a hungry student in this cashless society?

Well, we have something for the rumbling of your pitiable stomach.

With yet another semester rolling in, it is befitting to write about a salvaging passion for university students everywhere, a lingering question, that is never answered for good – what to eat? Actually, the question holds good for anyone.

At Delhi University’s North Campus, student hangouts come in all shapes and sizes. Let’s take a look at some of the easiest on pocket eateries located in and around North Campus.

Here are 5 delightful food joints in Delhi’s North Campus, the paradises priced ever so slightly on the higher side.

1. Maggi Maggi Maggi

Our first stop is a little roadside kiosk, Tom Uncle’s Maggi Point near Daulat Ram College. This place is what comes to a student’s mind when one talks about maggi. Maggi with all sorts of different varieties, which are around 20, is served here. This place is the legacy of Delhi University with undying taste and remarkable food quality even after so many years.  This place has been popular for ages and is really cheap. Must visit if you are a really diehard lover of Maggi. A trip to north campus is always incomplete without eating from this Maggi point.

2. Flavor of the East

Our third stop is a small shack just opposite Patel Chest Institute. If you’re craving some crisp momos, then Mangal Lama’s ‘Momos’ is the place to be. With sweet and spicy tomato chutneys, Lama sells three varieties of momos — veg, non-veg, and paneer. Easily missed, this neatly tucked away eatery is just outside Patel Chest Institute. It’s run by a young boy. Though not so much a kiosk, it is essential with the mouth-watering variety of momos with spicy sauce and mayo that doesn’t tear a hole in your pocket.

4. The Dying Indian Biscuit

Our last stop is a Nan Khatai vendor, who sells Nan Khatai or Indian Shortbread cookies near Faculty of Arts. He has been selling cookies near Faculty of Arts ever since he was a teenager. He sells around 7-8 Kgs of cookies each day. What’s best is that it comes cheap and this suits DU students just too well. Popularly frequented by university students, the price range is too low. These soft crumbly nankhatais throw many back to a nostalgic trip down the memory lane.

5. Chhole te Kulche

Our second stop is a little kiosk just off of Central Institute of Education, near Chhatra Marg. Though unnamed, this stall has stood its ground for nearly 20 years. The owner opens the eatery as early as 9:30 am, and then serves sumptuous chhole kulche up till evening. A plate of Kulcha comes with two coriander-sprinkled; butter greased fluffy Kulchas served with spicy Chhole. The Kulchas when eaten with the homemade pickle taste absolutely delicious. On many cool summer mornings, one finds regular customers sitting on the rickety benches at this anonymous stall, exchanging headlines from the paper while eating hot and spicy chhole kulche, served all day.
