This article explores foodification of the city by investigating social media. The article argues towards a conceptual understanding of foodification, which combines the material, social, and cultural aspects of food and its mobilization. Using Twitter feed of 10 years (2010-2020) in Delhi (India) on momos (dumplings), the paper demonstrates, (i) use of popular food items to promote businesses thereby propagating foodification, (ii) citizens using food as a means to lay claims over the city, and (iii) foodification of discourses beyond food. The paper uses these three empirical discussions to build a larger understanding of knowledge hegemony in city conceptualization. It demonstrated how the city is constructed through food and the discourse, practices, and performances around it.
