Meme culture is something that our generation believes in quite strongly. Be it political, social or economical, memes have changed the way we talk about things and desi memes, well they have a league of their own. The ‘Aao kabhi haveli pe’ meme waged a storm and we cannot deny the fact that we loved it. And recently we’ve come across an outlet in Kanpur which makes us go all nostalgic about the meme and all the ways it is funny.
Haveli is a well established North Indian-Punjabi food restaurant which is God-send for those who can never have enough of paneer pakoras, naan, butter paneer, desi-chinese, chat and everything close to home. It is also a wonderful place for those who can’t stop memeing and want to visit the restaurant and tell their friend, “haveli pe aana”.
Memes and jokes aside, Haveli is one of the most loved places in Kanpur and the kind of food they serve is addictive to say the least. You have to try the stuffed naans, paneer lababdar, and the kulcha here, they will blow your mind.
A satisfying meal here should start off with a simple jal-jeera or lassi and then move forward to the classic paneer pakoda, the malai soya tikka, followed by some rich and delicious khoya paneer, kadahi mushroom, pindi chana and add a few breads to the whole mix. You should also try the paneer manchurian, veg chowmein and the chili mushroom here if you’re a fan of Indian style Chinese food.
The interiors here are pretty traditional and you will find small details in the restaurants decor which invoke the rural Indian spirit and make for wonderful Instagram pictures.
So what are you waiting for? Call your friends, start off the hilarious, albeit a little old joke. When you come to the place, open your heart to the idea of great desi food, and “daba ke khao haveli pe”.
