Famous Food Outlets In Delhi: Connaught Place is considered the heart of Delhi because it boasts of many features. If it has the status of the first mall of the country, then it is completely different from other markets or areas of Delhi even on the issues of shopping, strolling and travel. Connaught Place is amazing in terms of food. Continental food is easily available in all the states of the country as well.
If you know Connaught Place and its culture from time immemorial, then there are three or four places here where Rajma-rice has a lot of publicity. Years ago too, there used to be a crowd of eaters at these shops and if you go there even today, you will see people eating Rajma and rice standing there. People have a different craze for this dish. Today we are taking you to a similar place here, which has been feeding this type of dish to people for years.
Rajma-rice here will give different fun
There is a huge super market in the outer circle of Connaught Place. It is in the Mayur Bhawan, outside which there is also a fire brigade station. There is a municipal market in this super market complex, in which there is a small shop by the name of ‘Dhaba food’, but the food sold here is particularly famous. This is one of the few shops in Connaught Place, where people come to eat Rajma-rice, curry-rice and chole-rice. If you have come to Connaught Place for some work and you know that the fun of Rajma-rice in the dhabas here is different, then you will definitely reach to eat it. In the afternoon, there is a lot of crowd at this shop and people will be able to stand and eat them outside the shop. In fact, the way in which other food items are served in this dish at this dhaba, it also enhances its taste and makes it different from the rajma-rice sold in other places.

While increasing the variety, the shop has started selling shahi paneer- rice and chickpeas as well. Apart from this, some other items of food are also sold, but people get the most pleasure only in Rajma-rice here. About 20 years ago, this work was started by Anil Mehta.

That’s why people have been coming to eat for years.
