‘Beyond Kebab’ Walk

Book Now

Lucknow is one city that is home to diversity, where not only religions meet and live together in utmost harmony, but also appreciate each other’s diverse cuisines, how else would one explain the existence of heritage halwais like Netram and Madhurima alongside Tundey Kebabi and Bismillah Biryani in Lucknow. This coexistence or rather the confluence of diverse cultures and traditions is actually called ‘Ganga-Jamuni Tehzib’.

Vegetarian cuisine in Lucknow is as rich as its non-vegetarian fare and held equally in high regard for its recipes and age-old traditions. Halwais in Lucknow have had their own loyal fan list and generations have been eating there for ages and vow that nothing has changed ever since.

On this two hours walking tour we take you to the traditional eateries where the oldest dates back to 1825, show you some traditional shops that specialise in sun-dried lentil-nuggets and accompaniments like papadums, pickles, preserves, chutneys for ages and still rule the dinner tables at Lucknow homes. Taste not only the tangy chaat and the coolest kulfi on this tour but also end it with a paan (betel-leaf preparation) that is nothing short of a dessert.
