Asian Hawkers Market
We Delhites, are known for our food choice and love for food. Recently, I happened to visit the fourth edition of Asian Hawkers Market at Select Citywalk, Saket. Asian Hawkers Market is the most happening food festival in Delhi, bringing along hundreds of foodies from across Delhi NCR. This is the most awaited food festival that has been happening every year now.
This festival gets a lot of crowd as one gets to experience all the South Asian delicacies under one roof. Right from a 5 star hotel, to a casual restaurant, you’ll find them all here. I loved the festival this year; they had so much to offer, with an increase in the number of food stalls. Not just that, the food we tried did not cost us a bomb. In fact, the food was pretty much easy on our pockets. The variety of cuisines ranged from countries like Cambodia, Indonesia, China, Japan and much more! Since, I visited in the afternoon, I did not encounter a lot of crowd. Starting my foodie ride, I first visited my favourite Berco’s, and had some starters to relieve the hunger pangs. I had very little portion of food at Berco’s just to satisfy the rats in my stomach, because I know I had to try a lot of different stalls and foods. After discussing with my friends, we mutually decided to go for Prankster which was on our ‘to go list’, and we had the Chicken Makhni Flaky Pizza, which happened to be the highlight of this season’s fest. We all knew our tummies wanted more, so we went on to The Bento Café and took a Bento Box which comprised of Hakka Noodles, Vegetables in Soya Garlic Sauce, and Raw Papaya Salad. Now that the main course was done, it was time to hog on the dessert the fest had in store for us. So, being the Red Velvet fan that I am, I hopped to the Bombaykery and ordered a red velvet cupcake and satisfied my sweet tooth. I definitely enjoyed this year’s Asian Hawkers Market more than the previous ones I had visited. This year it was orderly and organized efficiently. Rarely did I see any stalls come up with the ‘Out of Food’ boards. The music and the ambience added more fun and it was worth waiting in line. And the best part was that the fest had No Entry Fee!
Do visit Asian Hawkers Market whenever they come around next time, your tummy deserves some good authentic Asian food!
