Muskuraeeye- aap Lucknow mein hain!

You can get to know the heartbeat of a place in an instant by eating the local food. And the perfect way to find out a great place to eat is to ask your auto wala for the city's best. Which is what we did yesterday in Lucknow. And he brought us to awadh biryani near dainik jagran. I believe i shall be truly grateful to him forever.

From outside it may seem like a hole in the wall but the aromas will pull you in. We practically ate everything on the menu and its practically impossible to pick a favourite.

The kaleji was tossed with masalas and green chilies and was cooked just perfectly. Boti kabab was in a little gravy unlike the Delhi version of it but packed the same punch. The korma was even better than karim if i do say so myself. And the paranthas accompanying them were soft and flaky.

And the icing on the cake was the chicken biryani with rice so well seasoned that each bite was an explosion of flavors. Everything was devoured within a few seconds of hitting the table! And we practically had to be airlifted out of there after eating so much. But just the memory of it makes me hungry again!

The damage? Rs.800 for 9 people. I say if you don't have any weekend plans, book your flight tickets now! So worth it!
