Was venturing Chandhi Chowk and found this stall 'Old and Famous Jalebiwala. Not really a shop, food are serve, pick n go. Stall does not look clean, and the snack there sell look pricey to me. Very true, the owner and the workers never smile, and always looks tension. The sticky jalebis (deep-fried syrup squggles) look delicious but I dont... More

When in Chandni Chowk you're supposed to have Jalebi here. The big size Jalebi made in Ghee. A mouth watering moment.

If you are in Chandni Chawk you must try thick jalebis. The place is always crowded and the food is great. I do think he is over priced and i also wish he can have a better attitude with his customers. Maybe I am expecting too much.

I was flooded with suggestions to try the famous old jalebi during a recent food tour of Delhi. The popularity of the jalebi in Dms meant that missing out on it would be a rather huge disappointment. I scouted through the tiny lanes of Chandni Chowk, my eyes searching for this sweet corner which was literally on the corner of... More

If you are in Chandni Chawk you must try this place for his samosas and thick jalebis. The place is always crowded and the food is great. I do think he is over priced and i also wish he can have a better attitude with his customers. Maybe I am expecting too much.

An old shop, serving slightly bigger size jalebis. It is nothing like that I miss on regular basis and feel like eating now and then. Though I love jalebis a lot, but somehow not very impressed with this, not something exceptional in taste. Yes, they are different as they contrast to regular jalebis, which are usually crisp. These are softer... More

This is also one place if you are a Jalebi lover. You can have taste of good Jalebis in chandni chowk on your busy shopping day. The Jalebis are made throughout the day and you always get to have hot and crispy jalebis made of Pure desi ghee. I am not that fan of Jalebis but i liked the same... More

I made it a point to find this place as I stumbled across someone's instagram post of it. Our rickshaw driver took us straight there through the hustle and bustle of the market. I immediately noticed the "Beware of pickpocketing" signs above the store and across from it. I can of course imagine this being a hot spot for theft... More
