    Street Food - Old Delhi on last Friday before Eid

    Though we go often for excellent Food at Karim's in Jamma Masjid area, this time we decided to heed to my elder son's advise and explore the area. Our destination was excellent Beef Kebabs some kilometer and a half from Karim's.

    Our Journey starts at 2200 hrs from Karim's, for a quick look, walk down the lanes to our Kebab destination, come back sampling what ever takes our fancy and then finish the day with curries at the Karim's. The ended at midnight.

    This is where our journey normally starts and ends

    After a quick look, we decide to have kebabs at other place and return later. So here starts the long walk in hot weather - 36+ and jostling crowd.
