Attar Singh Chawla, who first used milk, cream and spices to prepare a meat based dish. If not a fan of chicken, then their Amritsari Fish is another highlight of the menu.

Parkash Dhaba

An indeed tiny shabby restaurant where you might think twice before stepping in. But believe the BYT food experts and do drop in for their mutton curry. Prepared with minimal ingredients like onion and garam masala, this is a light meat preparation that makes a gaga combo with a plate of hot steam rice or plain kulchas you get here. The restaurant has a branch at Maqool Road and if you end there, the curry can be supplemented with tikka, grills and kebab.
