Amritsar: Food Capital of India #streetfoodindia

Tripoto

Yes!!! Just like you, even i wasn't aware that Amritsar is also known as 'Food Capital of India' until I reached there.

I thought people visit Amritsar mainly for the Golden temple and Wagha border (Attari border).

But NO! I was wrong.

People go on food tours wherein they share different types of famous dishes from famous vendors.

So here is the list of 7 famous places to visit while in Amritsar!

1. Golden Temple Langar (Mahaparasad)

Once in Amritsar, head straightaway to Golden temple. Get soaked in the atmosphere and don't miss the Langar (Mahaparasad- a free meal served to all the visitors). It is a simple vegetarian food cooked and served by the sevaks.

2. Ahuja Lassi

When in Amritsar, one cannot miss the famous LASSI! Ahuja is famous for Kesar Lassi but since it wasn't available I had to settle with Plain Lassi (40INR). Also this place is most crowded during summers.
