Celebrating this extremely sumptuous street food culture of Delhi, NBT Flavors Fest was a 2-day long food festival hosted in the heart of the city at Baba Kharag Singh Marg, near the central most destination Connaught Place.
The fest was curated by none other than Delhi Food Walks, the world renowned food experience curators who know the city’s street food scene inside out.
The fest witnessed a grand participation from new-age street food vendors who’ve shot to fame with their Instagram worthy & Innovative food that also tastes brilliant.

From Tandoori Momos by Sachdeva Momos to the Gravy Momos, the Momo lovers of Delhi were definitely in the foodie heaven for these two days.
The fest also had a plethora of options for Non-Vegetarians as Old Delhi’s Khan Mughlai & Aslam Butter Chicken (names that aren’t very common to be seen outside their extremely popular shops in the old city) for some lip-smacking kebabs and curries.
The Instagram Sensation, Live Moonglet served with the exotic Khajoor ki Chutney was also seen flipping some fluffy moongdaal chillas stuffed with veggies like beetroot, sweet corn, onions & ginger. The dish has found a new name from this fest, and that is ‘Veg Omlette’.

For Refreshment beverages, Bistro 56 was churning out some cool shakes & mocktails, wooing the young lot.
