An Old Delhi Heritage and Mughlai Food Immersion
An Old Delhi Heritage and Mughlai Food Immersion
with Yasir Anwar


We invite you all to come and spend the evening with us at the “Androon Shehr” (walled city) of Shahjahanabad.

Delhi has served as the capital of several kingdoms (empires) and today it has become one of the greatest blends of Hindu, British and Mughal Architecture. Behind the walls, old “phataks”, “galis and kuchas” of the un-trodden lanes of Shahjahanabad, lie many Havelis (mansions), each with its own unique story to tell.

The aim of this immersion is to feel and experience the tangible and intangible Mughal Heritage and to enrich you with the history of the era. The walk also involves the most delightful non-vegetarian food and dessert experiences within the old city.

Havelis Covered Havelis at Ajmere Gate, Ballimaran (Mirza Galib Haveli), Chawri Bazar, Churi Walan, Matia Mahal, Chitli Qabar, Sitaram Bazar, Kucha Pati Ram.

Food Covered Kheer, Chicken Soup, Seekh Kebabs, Rumali Roti, Shahi Tukda with homemade Ice cream, Fry & Roasted Chicken, Biryani, Roohafza Milk Shake, Jalebi, Faluda and Paan.

Target Audience History, Culture and Food (Non-Vegetarian) enthusiasts

The visit to the havelis in chawri bazar with delicacies like changezi chicken, kheer to satiate our hunger was amazing. The crowd in Jama masjid was overwhelming. Yasir's enthusiasm to show us the forgotten treasures was great. Overall a very good experience. Source: Tripadvisor

The team is superb! The idea of putting the heritage and food, is insane! They dont take you to the typical Kareem's and Al-Jawahar's of the world, but the street side shop, selling the yummiest and creamiest chicken instead. All this and more, was covered. Source, Facebook

The food walk was the highlight of our Delhi trip. The thought that went into the restaurants chosen, havelis and information shared made it all a wonderful experience. Good types of dishes. We always try local food and this was very authentic but with the knowledge about hygiene. Local knowledge shared in a very informative way. Yasir is a dynamit. Source: Facebook

The little anecdotes about the haveli's in chawri bazar and bali maraan along with the amazing old delhi food that one hears about made this a memorable experience. Thanks to Yasir who took an extra mile to explain in detail about the lost heritage. The mouth watering kheer shop which has kept it recipe a secret for over a 100 years. Source: Facebook

What a 'taste' of the old city (literally!) with Yasir Anwar!This was a havelis and foodie walking tour. Great mix - you should try it. The havelis are melancholy and the food is unforgettable! Source : Facebook
