Nakhas market is the best place where you can find this. During eid, Gulabi chai is served with imarti and andarse. It is nothing like the ordinary chai you’ve had all your life.
A restaurant that serves both Mughal and Awadhi cuisine and it is real good. Try roasted chicken, roasted stew and kulchas.
Ravi’s pani puri
Ravi’s serves 11 varieties of pani puri in an order from regular pani puri, hing(asafoetida), aam(mango), mixed aam, hari mirch (green chilli), ginger, pudina, jeera, kala namak, nimbu and a dry or a sukha puri.
Thandai (also with bhaang) at Pandit’s which is the oldest thandai shop is most famous in Lucknow. Try masala(with bhang) and normal thandai flavoured with saffron, kaju and a few more.
Jamuna Prasad Chowrasiya Maghai Paan Bhandar is one of the oldest shop in the area and the most preferred one as well. Try maghai meetha paan, made with tender leaves of betel here.
Mouth-watering, delicious however you describe it will be less. Lucknow has more to offer and if you are a foodie you better visit the Lucknow streets to get the real ‘zayka India ka’.
