The food fight between India's two greatest cities is far from settled. Is Mumbai better or Delhi? HolidayIQ Travellers share their thoughts.

Which One Is Better? The Ultimate Mumbai Street Food Vs Delhi Street Food List!:

  1. Mumbai (Maharashtra)
  2. New Delhi (Delhi)

1. Vada Pav vs Aloo Chaat

Mumbaikars have an inbuilt love for Vada Pav, while the Delhites love chaats. HolidayIQ Traveller Mahi Gulat says, “One of my favourites in Mumbai is vada pav! Whenever I am there, I always make sure of having 3-4 vada pavs each day. Recently Mumbai celebrated World Vada Pav Day - Aamchi Mumbai's Best Gift to Foodies!” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Rachit Kuchha says, “If you are a foodie and visiting Delhi, Chandni Chowk is a must. For vegetarians, mouth-watering parathas, dahi bhalla and chaats are a must-try.”

2. Bombil vs Chicken Tikka

The lip smacking bombil of Mumbai can give a tough fight to Delhi’s chicken tikka. HolidayIQ Traveller Viraj Gupte says, “Malavan in Mumbai is known for its food culture and is right place for fisheatarians. Seafood like prawns, lobsters, king fish, mackeral, bombil, tisrya (shells) and crabs are must eat. A dish called 'vade-sagoti', a combination of a spicy-dry mutton curry with vade is also very famous.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Nitin Pethkar shares, “The food which are very tasteful which includes the Beef Gosh, Chicken and Mutton Biryani, Chicken and Mutton Tikka which is made from the different spices, Afghani Roti, and in sweets it is seviyan (which includes dry fruits.)”

3. Battata Vada vs Samosa

Chinese Bhel is an Indian fast food originated from Mumbai. Basically as a variation of Indian Noodles, it is widely popular in Mumbai. The trip to Delhi is incomplete without a taste of the gol-gappas, chaat-papri, raj kachori, aloo-chaat, tikki and bhel-puri. HolidayIQ Traveller Shobhit Agarwal suggests, “Please your taste buds with the taste of India. Visit the Paratha wali gali, Kakke di haati and savour kulfi and dahi bhalla.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Ashwin says, “Do not miss to have the bhakri, pitali and chai.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Yamin Watali shares, “I would describe Delhi as a combo of history and modern life. Delhi I think has the best food joints in country. Be it Mughlai, Continental, Chinese, South Indian. Some good places to eat are Karim's in Old Delhi, Punjabi by nature in Vasant kunj, Tai pan at Oberoi and Pind Balluchi. Delhi doesn't lag behind in street food. Be it parathas and jalebi of chandni chowk or chole bhature at bengali market.”

6. Falooda vs Kulfi
