Every dish was delish! And, we ate in places that we would NEVER have found on our own. We ate things we would NEVER have tried on our own. BUT! I had some of the most DELICIOUS food that day in some very interesting places. What a wonderful way to see the city. PRO TIP: Come hungry and be prepared to be delighted!

This food tour is what a TRUE secret food tour is about. We were taken to authentic local hidden gems that we would not have been able to access on our own. Our guides, Frannkey and Shree were awesome! Both were personable, genuine, and went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed our experience. All of the stops were delicious. Such good food. We loved the chai and samosas/ jalebi spots so much that we returned to them all multiple times!! It was such an adventure wandering through the non touristy parts of the city. Thank you BackStreet for an amazing tour! Thanks Frannkey and Shree for being so cool!! I can’t recommend this tour enough!

Our guides Namrata and Aanchal were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. They took us on a fantastic food tour too! The places we ate were off the tourist track and the food was delicious. So much so that we returned to the momo stop for dinner the next evening!
