Subhash Nagar used to be a refugee colony for people who migrated from West Punjab, Sindh and the North West Frontier. Soon after, people from Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, West Bengal, East Punjab and South India came in and became inhabitants. Then, like any other place in Delhi, people from all over the country started living together in the neighborhood as one big family.
If you are in the mood for some colonialism [ yes, you read it right ], you can trying Hinglish – The Colonial Café. It’s on the ground floor. You know how colonialism doesn’t let you climb up, same concept! For some brilliant coffee, you can move to the adjacent Gloria Jean’s Coffees. And if Butter Chicken is a must for all your outings, you can take respite in Amritsari Express [you will have to get to the second floor! The Butter Chicken will make it worth it though! ]. For a quickie, you have the usual KFC, Subway, Dominos, Mad over Donuts lined up. If you want to hover over firangi food – Subhash Nagar has just the place for you. “Firangi Masala” (5/1) is your go-to-restaurant. There’s the Chaap Chhobara (11/115) and Café Punjab (4/13) to fulfill your desi gastronomic desires too.
I am a student of BCIPS College, Dwarka (IP University) and have been living here for the last 9 months. My PG is near Pacific Mall and Subhash Nagar metro station. I enjoy a bit of teaching and interacting on social media.
Near Pacific Mall, Market, Temple and Gurudwara!
The area is good, with a temple and gurudwara nearby. Grover sweets, confectionary shops, medical store, chaat-papdi shops, beauty parlour, momowala, etc are all nearby :-)
Unfortunately, very few good PGs here in this area. I have to walk till the end of the street to reach my PG :-(
Decent commute options with rickshw facility and nearby metro station at Subhash Nagar.
