Food tours are always unique because it gives one a different view of the place that is being explored and food drives give a clear picture of the culture of the locals staying there. In many cities, there are a few organisations which keep offering food tours and one can easily enrol for one if they are eager to do it.
Delhi is also not an exception. The capital of India also has its own tours or Delhi food walks which can help people from all over the world to get the flavour of the city. But yes, one needs to pick the right food walk in order to get the authentic taste of the city.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when one is choosing a food tour:
- Most of the food trails or tours happen on foot and so in most cases, one has to explore one particular place where one can get delicious varieties of foods. So, one needs to pick up the neighbourhood that is the most popular one in the city when it comes to food walks and one has to check whether the organisers are covering that area or not. Simultaneously there can be more than one place in the city which can be an attraction for the city food lovers. Some are popular, some are not much. One needs to choose the food tour depending on which area one wants to explore.
- When one is doing the food tour, one also needs to check whether the organisers are also taking them for a tour through the famous monuments and buildings that are in the same area and spin the story about them. They must give an authentic look of the local lives in the neighbourhood where they have organised the food walk.
- Then one has to look that what food items are listed on the food tour? This is actually the most important thing to look for because when it comes to a food walk, then food is the most important thing here. One can research a little about the city and the famous food items available there and the city specials according to which one can come to a conclusion on which food to taste during the walk. One can choose the locality to explore accordingly. A good thing about food tour is, varieties of foods are available in a single locality and thus one can make their choices. If there is a particular food item that one has made mandatory to try then one can check if that is there is a provided food tour or not.
- There are many food tours that cover more than one food hub in the city. There are tours that cover 5 to 6 places at one go and these are more enjoyable because one gets to explore more than one place in the city along with endless varieties of foods. So, one should always choose these kinds of food walks.
