Back in the days when they were creating New Delhi in 1920's, this was the area architect Edwin Lu tens build for the India staff of secretariats. A benevolent Empire decided that even Indians need their own little Bazar, and up came the Gole Market.
Gole Market-a design prototype of sorts of the larger, grander, Cannaught Place build later, what type of name Gole Market is anyways? Did they run out of lords and dukes?
Today , Gole market remains in aberration, heartily and messily "middle class" in the middle of sanitized New Delhi. NDMC flats are let out to impoverished journalists and students, and the desire to have a bite at Galina is paid for with grave risk to life and limb in the areas haywire traffic. This market seems to specialist in raw meats-try Gujarat Fisheries, frontier fish shop, and taj meat shop. Then their are the cooked food joints, such as kaleva, famous old halwai whose range of namkeens, sweets, pickles and chaat is justly popular.
Bangla Sweet house and Bangla pastry shop offer more sweets and snacks. No wonder Gole market is foodie heaven.
