If you're a foodie, you must visit Delhi. The city doesn't disappoint anyone when it comes to food -- from the 'thela wala' momos, street food shacks, cafeterias, family restaurants, bars to the finest dining places; you name it, the city has got it!

But considering the cheap-skate in you that comes out every now and then (guilty as charged!), I decided to list down the cheapest hangout places in the city -- that won't let you down when it comes to checking-in at a fancy place!

Psst. To be on the safer side, always carry at least a 1000 bucks. Not because the prices have changed, but you might just end up eating much more than planned!

1. Rico's

  • Average cost per person: Rs 500
  • Address: 1st Floor, 2526, Hudson Lane, Kingsway Camp, Delhi University-GTB Nagar, New Delhi

Read while you wait, and then chow down on lip-smacking delicacies. What more would one want!
