It’s that time of the year when you have to leave the mom-made delicious food and head back to savouring street food as college reboots. Students away from home crave good food that won’t hurt the pocket and that’s exactly what Delhi offers them – low budget street food as no other city’s street food joint can.

Delhi doesn’t baffle any kind of foodie. From simple budget roadside food to the most costly and swanky eateries, it has something for everybody. Here’s a rundown of some of the eateries in Delhi where you can have a feast without smoldering a gap in your monthly budget.
