Yes, it’s hard when you have to give up on people who mean the world to you. Yes, it’s even harder when they give up on you. We’ve all been there, and apart from close friends to trash our exes with, food has been our best companion throughout.
You just want to dig into mountains of chocolates and crisps, watch movies, and then binge on some more. We totally understand the craving, and therefore bring to you 15 best places to binge your heart out in and around Delhi.
1. Big Chill Cakery (Khan Market)

2. Hokey Pokey (Central Mall, Gurgaon)

Eat what you choose, and get fascinated as they creatively make it right in front of you!
3. Chili’s (Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj)
Because nothing can cure heartache like cheese and chocolate.
Fried, sweet and CHEESY; the perfect post-breakup starter kit. Chili’s has one of the most appetizing nachos, drizzled with 2 types of melted cheese that ooze out with every bite. No we’re not stopping you at that. Apart from the wide range of main courses, the desserts are what we would dig into most. The molten lava cake is the perfect end to an exquisite meal. The ice cream adds just the amount of sweet you need to get the bitter experience out.

5. Azote (SDA Market)
Desserts is Stressed spelled backwards!

7. L’Opera (DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj)
Sophisticated atmosphere and extravagant flavours go really well together.
A pastry and bakery house that specializes in french food. If you prefer a more high-end taste, the tarts at L’Opera are to die for! The fruit tarts have just the perfect amount of sweet while retaining the natural sweet flavours of the fruits. The lemon tart is our other favourite, a hint of sour and sweet mixed together to give the right balance to our palate. Pain has never tasted better.
8. Haagen Dazs (Select City Walk Mall, Saket)
“Life happens, chocolate helps.”
The Haagen Dazs fondue is just what you need, trust us. E very fondue comes with four mini ice cream scoops in flavours of Belgian Chocolate, Strawberry, Cookies & Cream and Vanilla each, eight pieces of sponge cake, three hard cookies, picola sticks, seasonal fruits and chocolate chip cookies.

Fried and sugary bliss.
Crispy fried sweet dough, sprinkled with sugar and dipped into melted chocolate. Really, nothing sounds better than San Churros at a time when you couldn’t care less about how much sugar is healthy for you. If you want more dips other than chocolate, you can choose from Spanish Caramel, any flavoured ice cream, or fruits like bananas and strawberries. If we were you, we’d take em all. #JustSaying!

Available in both chicken and veggies, the burger has cheese in it’s stuffing. IT OOZES OUT. Why on earth would we want to miss on that? If that much cheese doesn’t stick together the broken pieces, the chilli cheezos are the perfect combination and easy on the pocket too. Eat as many as you can, we’re not judging!
Eat up, kids. This phase won’t last forever, so you might as well make the most of it.
