'मुस्कुराइए आप लखनऊ में है😀😀'
And this muskurahat (laughter) comes only after you indulge yourself with the Awadhi delicacies, tempting sweets and the glittering market of accessories..
A group of 8 people from Kolkata, we reached Lucknow on the morning of 29th December.
Our stay was at a budget hotel at Naka Hindola Chauraha, Aryanagar.
The trip was as per the plan made beforehand.
After the breakfast and a couple of hours rest, we headed towards The Mughal's Dastarkhwan at Lalbagh, one of finest dining place in Lucknow....Galawati kebab, Chicken Malai Kebab, Mughlai paratha, Nihari, Handi Biriyani followed by the Shahi Tukda...
'Lucknow aaye aur Kebab nahi khaye,,,aama ye bhi koi baat hui!...the succulent Galawati kebab with mughlai paratha is a must have...of course the dessert has to be equally sumptuous and what can be better than the Shahi Tukda!
Contented, we proceeded to Janeshwar Mishra Park and Ambedkar Park. Time spent well and the best part was the Sun down moment at Ambedkar Park.
Guys, how about melting a chilled evening with something hot?! So our next stop was at Sharma ki Chai and the 'Kulhad Wali Chai' definitely made it..
With still enough time left, we halted for shopping....'Chikankari', the attraction of the bright colourful stores is just hard, very hard to ignore,,,so to fill that extra space in the luggage (which was left intentionally), we bought some😊
'Ab itna ghume toh bhukh toh lagni hi hai'...if you ask me my favorite kebab joint at Lucknow, I'll recommend 'Tunday Kababi' at Aminabad. We have had more Galawati kebabs and the taste was better than Dastarkhwan. Had we known this earlier, we should have tried this kebab at Tunday kababi in the beginning. Taste and quality of food here are worth drooling...and with these food expeditions, our first day at Lucknow was quite happening.
