When Hunger Strikes at Midnight: Delhi's Late Night Home Deliveries
It’s 2am. That bar just closed or worse you just got done with work and you’re suddenly starving. Delhi is a city that never sleeps and never stops eating. And yet, when hunger strikes at an odd hour, it is bad enough that you’re greeted with ‘kitchen’s closed’ or perhaps the day's leftovers.

Luckily, some places are willing to wait up for the eager night owls. With a new breed of home deliveries mushrooming in the Capital, a diverse set of dining options are available for those who wish to dine late. You don't have to search the streets or turn to takeaways, they make sure good food is delivered where you want and when you want. Here are six places that will always have something to curb your appetite from sunset to sunrise. Eat in.

From the house of Harisons Caterers, it lures foodies with its beloved dishes now delivered at your doorstep. The food is as good as ever. The Sholay Kebabs are fiery, bite in and wait for your tongue to start tingling. The best things I’ve sampled on their menu are Keema Rice and Mud Cake. On a blurry night, I’ll most certainly get both and something more.
