The city of nawabs, kebabs and aadabs has its own charm while it carves out a shayari and sipping on chai. It may be congested with traffic, narrow roads, pickpockets but the whole essence will surely urge you to say ‘muskuraiye… aap Lucknow mein hain”.
Enough of the historic charm and jazz lets come down to business and that means good food. If you ever visit Lucknow and don’t eat at Tunday or Idrees then you are to be laughed on for sure!
But janaab, lockdown and corona have made our jeena haram. Everything was closed for nearly three months and even locals were missing their hazelnut factor cookies and ‘Durga ke khaste’. However, I will serve good news and tell you the iconic and popular eateries that are open again. So here are 5 iconic places that have reopened in Lucknow for you to satisfy your hunger:
Durga Khasta Corner
Durga Khasta Corner is a small shop tucked in Lalbagh which is insanely famous for its pocket-friendly khasta and chai. It has reopened post the lockdown and is already swarmed with people. People obviously cannot wait any longer for their special khasta.
Idrees Biryani dates back to late 20th century which served exquisite Mughlai food. And kisko Mughlai nahi pasand? It’s still serving the flavours that continue to blow people’s minds and make them come back for more!
Hazelnut Factory isn’t as old as the others in the list but it doesn’t fail to make anybody drool less. Making its entrance in late 2018 has struck a chord with the youngster of Lucknow. From their pink sauce pasta to their classic cheesecake, everything is a hit, and it’s all available for takeaway now!
Sharma Ji Ki Chai
If you live in Lucknow then your chai obsession comes from Sharma Ji Ki Chai. Its just plain old kulhad wali chai but nobody can do justice to chai like these guys. And if you want a little bit more than chai then their samosa is to fight a war for! Also, fun fact, they have only 5 items apart from the chai.
If you have never heard anybody say Tunday Kababi then you have been living under a rock for sure! The name is synonymous with the most mouth-watering galauti kebabs. If you are ever in Lucknow, don’t forget to check this place out and if you get there without traffic then you’re probably at the wrong place.
We believe we have done our part of making you all drool, however, please ensure you take all the safety precautions and order or take away your food from these eateries.
Also, please stay home and enjoy all these yum food and do your part to flatten the curve.
