Annapurna wins on both accounts—the locations in South Delhi, and the many different sweetmeats that they have to offer. The Mishti Doi, Kheer Kodom, Cham- Cham, and Roshokodom are par excellence. Annapurna originated in Chandni Chowk with the very first one in 1922. The regulars are loyal to their Chena Mithais — Rajbhog, Rasamalai, Shahi Toast. The Samosa is one of the bestsellers as people queue up to get their share. A must visit for those with a sweet tooth!

Bengali Sweet Centre
Located in the busy hub that is South Ex, Bengali Sweet Centre has its own dominion in the bustling market. While mithai is what they do best, their savoury snacks too have become well-known for their innovation and quality. They also have a chaat counter outside where you can satisfy your cravings for tangy and spicy snacks. Since it is so popular, it is always crowded even on non-festive days. Even so, the service is always quick and prompt. You should get the Badam Lauj, Pista Lauj, Badam Barfi, and Kalakand here.

Debnath Sweets & Caterers
Tucked inside an inner lane of Mahavir Enclave, Debnath is where we head to when we are nearabouts Dwarka. Lot’s of Bengali families living in the area go to this shop purely out of the convenience, but we also love the cham cham, kheerkodoms, roshomalai and shondesh. Get here in the early hours of the morning and you’ll be able to catch hot kachori and vegetables, along with crispy runny jalebis. We have previously had these guys do small scale events and household family functions as well.
