2. Evergreen Sweet House – Green park

Every Delhite has been to Evergreen Sweets at least once in their lifetime as it is a well known name to millions of food lovers. It is popular for its iconic sweets but what we didn’t know was that they serve appetizing dishes as well. They have a number of dishes, but Rajma Chawal is on top in terms of taste and is highly recommended.

I was always a fan of their sweets but now a bigger fan for their Rajma Chawal.
