What to expectWe 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 bandh tikki and papdi chaat.
After that, we will move towards the street food market near Mata Lal Devi Mandir where 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.
We will then move to another pop-culture street food stall which provides a unique barbeque versions of Soya beans and Momos, that’s right, roasted Soya Chaamp and Momos. Soya chaamp is tasted with a unique Indian bread called the Rumali Roti or Paper Roti. The vendor serving the barbeque items is an instant crush for many girls who have been on our tour with us, he is usually remembered more than our guides.
We will then quench our thirst with a popular teenager drink called Fruit Beer but calm down, it’s a non-alcoholic drink. Shhhh…
We will make a quick stop inside Mata Lal Devi Mandir, which is arguably the most bizzare Hindu temple you are going to visit in your lifetime. Be strong in your heart. This is going to draw some emotions.
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. As tempting as it will be, we will save a small amount of space for a mouthwatering dessert at the same place 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.
Post tour warning: you might also need a Indian Food Detox :)
