What you can expect
Tunday Kebabi: This heavenly offering had to be first on the list and the best place to have it is the
obvious–the 100-year-old, tucked away in a corner of the bustling Aminabad area. Started by the late
Haji Murad Ali, the shop was named Tundey (meaning one arm) because Ali sahib prepared kebabs
only with one hand. Most kebabs have their own legends, the most famous of all–the Gilawat kebab
(the softest) was specially made for the nawab of Lucknow.
Mutton Biryani: So, for the real flavour of Dum Biryani visit to a small shop in the Chowk area–Idris
Dhaba. Forget the class for some time and indulge yourself in the soft aroma of Dum Biryani as it is
cooked over low fire in a sealed, heavy-bottomed pan.
Handi Chicken: As the name suggests, the chicken here is cooked in an earthen pot (over coal in a
one-metre-deep hole). The original Kalika Hut is in Azamgarh, but Lucknow's Badshah Nagar and
Gomti Nagar serve the same taste, with a lovely aroma. Its combination with Lucknow's best
shreemals is just mind-blowing.
Gulabi Chai: Surprised! Try Nakhas market at night. During Eid, Gulabi Chai is served here with hot
imarti (similar to jalebi) or andarsey. Flavoured with saffron, elaichi, and kewra, its taste is nothing like
the ‘typical chai’ you have had all your life.
Lucknawi Chaat: Lucknawi cuisine is incomplete without some lip smacking chaat. Along
pavements, you will be allured by snack monsters: Dahi-vada, papdi, ghugni, aloo dum, bhujia, onion,
chutneys and the mouth-watering pani-batasha (in five different flavours). Try Royal Café in
Hazratganj that Lucknowites swear by, especially for its basket chaat. Gomti Nagar's Neelkanth,
Aliganj's Radhey Lal and Aminabads Pandit chaat house are also good options.
Kulfi Falooda: Located in Aminabad, close to Tundey Kebab, Prakash ki Kulfi is among the best
places to have dessert.
Thandai (also with Bhang); A must visit place in the Chowk area, Pandit Raja is Lucknow's oldest
Malai Ghewar: For Lucknowites Ghewar is what Rosgullas are to Kolkatans. Neelkanth
confectionary is hands down the best place to have it.
