Item description for Not Just A Good Food Guide: New Delhi by M. R. Narayan Swamy...
The bustling city of New Delhi is a place where eating out has increasingly become a way of life. New Delhi is known for its exquisite Mughlai cuisine (introduced by the early Islamic rulers) and an extraordinary range of vegetarian fare. But did you know that Chinese food - tempered in true Indian inimitable style - is the second most popular cuisine in the country? It all began in the late 18th century with a failed business by a Chinese immigrant. Today, authentic and 'Indianised' Chinese food is available all over the city - in high-end restaurants, mid-range eateries, mobile vans and small kiosks.
Not Just A Good Food Guide: New Delhi introduces readers to the best of the better-known south and north Indian cusines, the traditional Mughlai food (introduced by the early Islamic rulers), the mainly non-vegetarian Kashmiri palates, food from other but lesser-known parts of India, the many foreign dishes available here, the local food chains and, of course, the ubiquitous street food of Delhi.
This guide also contains a short note about the health hazards that, unfortunately, are so vital to know in a place like Delhi. It will take readers through the many places and streets of Delhi where a multitude of eateries and restaurants, mostly in residential and shopping complexes and also in luxury hotels, provide mouth-watering delicacies that originate in the different parts of the enchanting sub-continent called India.
