Being a foodie, I love to visit food festivals being organised in different parts of the city. But when it’s NASVI Delhi Street Food Festival, you are up for a treat.
The National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI) organises street food festivals to promote the street food vendors of Delhi as well as vendors from other parts of the country. The most most recent being the Delhi Street Food Festival organised from 19th to 21st February at Baba Kharak Singh Marg, New Delhi was a true foodie paradise.
So I visited the festival on the first day itself with my friend Arathi Nair, a B.Tech student and a fellow foodie (Partner in Crime :P). The food festival was a great experience as we discovered some really good street food items. One of the most interesting discoveries we made were the Wheat Momos by Womos. These momos are a healthier version of the normal ones with the outer coating made of Wheat Flour. Apart from the brownish color of the outer coating the momos tastes the same as the usual ones. We also got to try some delicious Bengali Fish Fry and some excellent Chicken Tikkas and Seekh Kebabs.
This festival was not just about food, but it also featured performances by local street performers. We were lucky enough to catch an amazing performance by a local street magician.
It was a great experience visiting this Street Food Festival and I am looking forward to more of such festivals being organised by NASVI.
