Old Lucknow, where the famous paradise for non-vegetarians, Tunday Kebabi is situated. Shop for Chikankari at low prices here.
Chowk area, the food capital of Lucknow, brought out the glutton in us with a variety of taste-bud tickling ‘Avadhi’ cuisine – from Idrees’ Gosht Pulao to Raheem’s Nihari-Gilafi Kulcha; from Tundey kabaab to Mubeen’s Pasande; from Shukla golgappas and chaat to Shaid’s fish tikkas. And then, there was always a paan for every occasion.
Another foodie's heaven is Chowk, which boasts a of equally long line up of mouth watering delicacies. The famous Tunde Kababs originated here.
