Chawlas 2

This national food chain has almost 80 outlets across the country though it started its journey from Amritsar. Thus, even if you have been to their eatery before, being in the Amritsar one has an added heritage to grab your attention. The place is renowned for ‘Cream Chicken’, a dish started by Late S. 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. The restaurant recently became news with its business ventures travelling overseas to South Africa, New Zealand, UK and so on.

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.
