Well let’s be candid about things, we generally don’t get time to explore things in the weekdays. Then why make your weekends humdrum, particularly when you have stuff to experience in Noida. While there are umpteen things that you can do in Noida, I’ll try and mention a few of them. Try these whenever you get time and give a feedback if time permits you.

 

Go shopping in the sector 18 area and Atta Market: We love shopping and if we don’t love shopping we love the people who love shopping. So directly or indirectly we all love shopping! Sector 18 is like the life of the town here in Noida and you’ll observe that the area always blazes a trail as far as style is concerned! The best thing about sector 18 lavish shopping area is that its modest cousin the ‘Atta Market’ resides in the neighborhood. Yeah that’s right, the atta market is just opposite at arm’s length from sector 18 and you can buy stuff from the atta market at a really reasonable price. From clothes to utensils, toys to furniture everything is available in this market. Pay a visit for a unique and closer to reality experience.

 

Go for some sports: Get that adrenaline rushing, sweat out all the frustration! Take sports, anything that befits your skills and interests. You can visit the Noida stadium in sector 21. The stadium has multiple facilities like Table tennis, badminton and others. Take a few friends with you and enjoy the game. Alternatively you can also visit the Decathlon Noida just beside the GIP ball. You can buy sports related stuff and play basketball, table tennis as well!

 

Explore Cafes and Restaurants: Noida has many god restaurants and cafes where you can hang out. Sector 18 Noida apparently offers many such places. The sector has many coffee chains and many brilliant restaurants as well. To name a few of them, you have Desi Vibes, Pind Baluchi, KFC, Punjabi by Nature and many others. You can never get short of culinary options in Noida for sure!

 

Take a long drive on the Express way: Well that a great idea, innit! Long drives are always a superb temporal way to run away from stress. Just grab the key of your bike or car and go for a long drive. Luckily Noida has an awesome Noida-Greater Noida expressway that you can enjoy. The roads are nice and you can just have an escape away from the maddening crowd, traffic and honking of the city!

 

Explore Street Food: I always try to explore street food. Noida has some delicious street food joints. Although you’ll find many street food points but a few of them are just brilliant. Try the ‘Chhole Bhature’ at GuptaJi’s near the golf course metro station in sector 31. You can try Aunty’s Momos in sector 18 as well just behind the Bikanerwala. These are just a few of them named here in this blog post.

 

 

Keep exploring the city and keep spreading information about the city as well!

India has always been a land of ardent food lovers. People in India love eating like anything. Albeit, the concept of becoming health conscious is getting prevalent these days but the number of food lovers has not seen any abatement either. In this era of lavish restaurants and coffee chains, people are missing the experience of the great street food culture of India. When you love food, it is always on your priority. As the great George Bernard Shaw said- “There is no sincerer love than the love of food”. You can gauge a lot about a person by this eating habits and the choice of food he prefers to eat. Street food also plays a key role in helping us increase the immunity level of our body.

The type and taste of street food in India varies with geographical locations. In Kashmir you will find the awesome Kashmiri Tea which has dry fruits in it as well. You also find a variety of non-vegetarian stuff. There is this “Kashmiri Dum Aloo” a special preparation of vegetarian stuff in non-vegetarian style. Hyderabad is another place in India known for its rich food culture. The city of Nizam is well known for its mouth watering non-vegetarian preparations. The Hyderabadi Biryaani is something that no non-vegetarian wants to miss! The places like the Charminar and the Golkonda fort are places with rich street food culture. Eating in Hyderabad is so delicious, it’s like you are forced to pick up food and put it in your mouth.

When you talk about food, taste, street food you can never miss to mention Delhi. The capital city is full of awesome food spots. From lavish bar restaurants to traditional street food spots, Delhi is blessed with the best! You can get a variety of chicken from the conventional “Tandoori Chicken” to the “Butter Cream Chicken”, the choices are many. While roaming on the streets in Delhi you can get a chance to eat “Nankhatai”, the dying Indian ‘biskoot’! The history of “Nankhatai” is pretty interesting. It is believed that a couple of Dutch men started making it in a bakery that they owned in Surat. While leaving India, they handed over the bakery to a Parsi gentleman. That’s why some people call it “Irani Biskoot” as well. You will also get a variety of Afghan food in Delhi, predominantly in the Lajpat Nagar Area. Delhi is also blessed with taste of Tibetan culture. You will get to experience real Tibetan food and culture at the “Majnu Ka Tilla”. The place has history behind its name. It is believed that a Sufi mystic used to help people and ferry them across the Yamuna River for free. Thus people started calling him Majnu (crazy)!

India is jam-packed with street food options. The Indian streets are full of “Paani Puri” walas and the “Chhole Kulche” walas! You will get great desserts like “Jalebi” and “Kesar Milk” on the road-side stalls. So if you are a gourmand then an Indian street with a lot of food options is the place where you want to be. The Indian street food not only suffices your taste buds but also helps you increase your immunity level.
