You may wonder what Karim’s is doing in a


story on obscure, off-beat places and experiences in Delhi. After all, every meat-loving Delhiite has been to Karim’s at least once, and it’s a permanent fixture on every tourist’s itinerary.

You can order a full stuffed goat at Karim's Chandni Chowk.

We have all, at some point, meandered our way through the galis of Purani Dilli to visit this over hundred-year-old institution and feasted on their world-famous mutton burras and murg Afghanis. Why then are we talking about it here again, you ask? Because there is always something unique, little-known to be discovered even in the most well-known of places.

In Karim’s case, it’s their Tandoori Bakra. A full goat stuffed with pieces of chicken, eggs and rice, and roasted to juicy, melt-in-the-mouth perfection. Priced at Rs 7,500, the dish needs to be ordered a day in advance for – depending on your appetite – a group of 8-10 people.

So next time you’re up for a culinary adventure, this complete meal served on a silver platter could be a great new experience to be enjoyed with friends.
