Connaught Place is the ultimate destination where all the Delhites unite. Be it a date night, school reunion, farewell party or a family dinner; there are all sorts of cafes, restaurants, shops, movie theatres and what not to accommodate our needs. 

Every time I make plans with my friends who live on the opposite side of the city, CP is the most convenient option, but, is also very expensive. One outing is bound to leave you with great memories and unfortunately, an empty pocket. So, in my quest to keep enjoying the killer vibe of CP and save my pockets from burning, I found the following places which serve food under ₹100.

1. Chai Story
