Let’s admit it. Kebabs are one of the best things that could have happened to us hardcore non-vegetarian foodies (after ‘Butter Chicken’ of course). There's something about these char-grilled marinated pieces of meat that can easily put you in a food coma with the first bite itself. Isn't it? This delectable dish is devoured with utmost pleasure in various quaint corners of the national capital.
We have rounded up the ‘best of the best’ kebab places in the city where you can head to get a bite of these chunky kebabs. Thank us later!
If you are a sucker for exquisite cuisine, you definitely have to try the Kakori Kebabs served here with crunchy onions and refreshing mint chutney. Their Chicken Tikka and Mutton Kakori Rolls are equally mouth-watering. If you'd rather enjoy binging on your kebabs in the comfort of your home, Majeed's have a takeaway service too which is very prompt.
2. Qureshi Kabab Corner
This tiny but popular restaurant churns out some of the most succulent chicken and mutton kebabs. The highlight of their menu is their special Seekh Kebabs that are the best in town. You just won’t forget the lingering taste for a looong time. We bet you on that. Pair it with their soft and fresh Rumali Rotis and your stomach will thank you for it.
This five-generation-old restaurant is located at one of the most famous addas of the locals at Pandara Road. Best known for its palatable Kakori Kebabs, every other dish on their menu is as tempting and flavoursome. From a creamy Murgh Malai Tikka to a gorgeously charred Chicken Tikka, you are truly spoilt for choice here.
If you are a Mughlai cuisine lover, this should be your go-to place. Karim’s is undoubtedly one of the most authentic eatery joints that generations swear by. From their Nihari and Bara Kababs to their Mutton Seekh Kebabs every dish is an absolute winner. Although there are nine outlets in the city, the Jama Masjid outlet is our most favourite.
5. Ghalib Kebab Corner
Situated amidst the crowded and noisy Nizamuddin lanes, Ghalib Kebab Corner serves the best Mutton Shami Kebabs EVER. There are no two ways about it, really. It’s for this very reason that you find the place always crowded with hungry foodies lining up for their luscious kebabs. But the long toil is all worth the wait as you savour the first bite of their melt-in-the-mouth kebabs. Trust us.
