You can try delicious kabab paratha evening and mouth watering nehari and paya in the morning at kolkata hotel (jama masjid chowk). The kabab you find in this area has a distinct taste not what you find in the northern delhi region. Moreover you can find tikia (minced meat pressed together and fried), its an absolute delight and is a must must if yo happen to be in the region. One more must do is the kabab at sujait chowk area, the place is small but the popularity of the place can be easily seen. The shop opens at 3-4 in the evening and is out of stock within 2-3 hrs. So if you are one of those who cannot resist the taste of good meat, this is a must visit place.and if you are interested in biryani go to zakir hussain road at iqbal hotel
