Dining in Delhi is a pleasure as its food is generally less spicy than the fiery dishes found in southern India. Suggested dishes to try are tandoori or butter chicken, momo rolls, kebabs and the found-everywhere chaat snacks. Different eateries serve food for different people and Jain vegetarian, Muslim and Muglai dishes are on the various menus. Connaught Place is the hub of nightlife in Delhi, featuring bars such as the Shamrock Irish Pub and Rick's at the Taj Mahal Hotel.Shopping
Delhi boasts a great collection of places to go shopping. In the Red Fort, Chatta Chowk is a covered bazaar and a premium spot to buy souvenirs. Among the items sold are bead and hand-made jewellery, pictures of elephants and Shiva painted on cloth, masks and wooden statues. Two of the selection of modern shopping venues are Shehnai Mall and an upmarket Swarovski jewellery and accessories outlet.
