Nothing can woo Delhiites better than good food. And, if there’s a heady dose of music to pair it up with, then it’s a clear winner.

If you are looking for a combination of both, then waste no time and head to the ongoing Indo-German Urban Mela at Indraprastha Park, where you not only get to indulge in some serious head banging but also savour finger-licking delicacies from the German kitchen. Coupled with it is an array of choicest beer and wine to gulp from Germany and India.

So, as you enjoy the pleasant nip in the air under the misty sky over some reggae, jazz and punk, contemporary dance performances by German and Indian dancers, or classical concerts by Aman and Ayan Ali Bangash spread over today, tomorrow and Sunday, you could help yourself to some loafy pretzels, Frankfurters, sausages, hotdogs, burgers or a range of crunchy garden fresh salads, priced between Rs. 100-350. While there are choices aplenty for both vegetarian and non-vegetarians, you will even find items such as Murgh Khurchan with pao and Lucknowi vegetable biryani from the Indian section. The prices might be slightly higher in comparison to the portion sizes but the combo meals priced at Rs. 400 and Rs. 500 (veg and non-veg) that come with a pint of beer, are surely worth it. From Erdinger Weissbier to Chenin Blanc, the beer and wine options are good. Teetottalers can sip on German fruit spritzer or some gooey hot chocolate and bite into the desserts too — apple pies and puddings.

The USP of the counter is the quick service, you ask for it and it’s there — hot and fresh. So, feast on!
