What to expect

Morning version

We will meet at the common assemble point at Partition Museum from 10 min before the start time. We will start our tour once all the guests have joined. After some basic introductions and instructions from our tour leader, we will start our quest for the delicious Amritsar Food.

Our first stop will be an extremely popular and irresistible breakfast item of Amritsar called Poori Chhole which is deep-fried bread served with a bowl of chickpea curry and a small amount of pickle. From the same place, we also taste a mouth-watering dessert “Karah” which is made by the mixture of whole-wheat flour, clarified butter and sugar

We will then gratify our thirst with a popular drink known as Lemon Soda. It is a cocktail made with lemon juice and mint flavor, flavored like a mojito cocktail.

After that, we will take a quick break at an insanely famous shop known as Gurdas Ram Jalebi Wala for its nostalgic sweet candy of Indian children called Jalebi, made by deep-frying maida flour batter in circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup.

We will then give ourselves to Amritsar’s most popular breakfast item called Aloo Kulcha, also known as the Amritsari Naan. It is a mixed vegetables stuffed bread which is baked in a traditional clay oven, soaked in an insane amount of butter and is served royally with a differently flavored chickpea curry and tamarind chutney or sauce.

On our way back, we will take one last break for a sweet-sweet, coma-inducing Amritsari Lassi with a topping of an ungodly amount of desi butter and cream at the famous Gian Di Lassi which has been serving generations of Amritsar.

We can either walk back to our start point or bid farewell to our fellow foodies while we take some of the last tour pictures and share memories. We are sure you would not be eating for quite a while after this.

Post-tour warning: you might also need an Indian Food Detox :)

Evening version

We will meet at the common assemble point at City On Pedals Backpackers Hostel in Rani Ka Bagh from 10 min before the start time. We will start our tour once all the guests have joined. After some basic introductions and instructions from our tour leader, we will start our quest for the delicious Amritsar Food.

Our first stop will be an insanely popular evening snacking place known as New Brijwasi Chaat where we will taste and learn about the process of making delicious Bandh Tikki.

We will then quench our thirst with a popular childhood favorite drink called Fruit Beer, but hold on, it’s a non-alcoholic drink. Shhhh…

We will then move to another pop-culture street food stall which provides a unique barbeque version of soya beans and momos. Soya Chaamp is tasted with a unique Indian bread called the Rumali Roti or Paper Roti. The vendor serving this as well as Roasted Momos is an instant crush for many girls who have been on our tour with us, he is usually remembered more than our guides.

If you are on the evening version of our food walk, we will have a bite of a childhood food delight known as Aam Papad where not only you will satisfy your tangy taste buds, but also make friends with one of the most amusing street food vendors our city has been blessed with.

It will then be time to walk a little while towards our final destination - a traditional Amritsar Dhaba and serve ourselves with some delicious main course. The traditional Punjabi Thali that we will devor would consist of the Maa-ki-Dal which is poured into a steel cup filled with Desi Ghee and minced onions raised to a lava temperature and is served with a special traditional clay oven-baked layered bread called Lachha Parantha and a unique variety of pickle usually found only at a place like this.

We will also save a small amount of space for our last food item which is a mouthwatering dessert, “Jalebi” at the same dhaba before we end our food odyssey.

We can either walk back to our start point or bid farewell to our fellow foodies while we take some of the last tour pictures and share memories. We are sure you would not be eating for quite a while after this.
