Delhi is up for all events related to food. The Grub Fest’s second instalment for the year 2017 was held last weekend at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium. The area was swarming with activities and the ticket counters witnessed long queues. The late autumn nip was just right to sustain the surging crowds at the event.
The Grub Fest, apparently India’s biggest food festival, came back to Delhi NCR once again this 14th – 19th March at JLN Stadium. To keep Delhites well fed and entertained, the festival brought together some of the most popular restaurants offering their signature drinks and dishes over some music, dance, games and contests. Our favorite beer brand Witlinger was the official Pouring Partner of The Grub Fest. Grub Fest keeps coming back and we would recommend this event to anyone looking for good times
We visited The Grub Fest (23-25 October 2015) on a Sunday afternoon that happened to be the last day. The organisers had assembled popular eateries, food, drinks, and some live performances under a single event. In fact, we saw the popular comedian Vir Das performing and singing as well! Given the myriad eating options, we tried bits of a lot of things and liked whatever we had.
We visited the daylong street food festival Zaika-E-Dilli at Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri where the organisers Thelewala brought together brought an assortment of street food mostly from Old Delhi. Consequently, got to have some simple but hidden pleasures like the fruit kuliey and the Rabri waali Kulfi in Rose flavour. While there is room for more variety, this was a great starting initiative by the Thelewala.
