Pockets feeling light but cravings are heavy? Head over to this gem!
All the meat hoggers in Delhi swear by Zakir Nagar because they know, how pocket-friendly this food-hub is and the meaty options here are too delish to be refused.
Think slightly charred and greasy kebabs, perfectly seasoned roasted chicken with fresh-cut onions and hari chutney and of course, the fragrant biryani variants. But when it comes to galawati kebabs, we all know that nobody does it better than Lucknow.
We’re all well-acquainted with Lucknow’s Tunday and those who haven’t tasted the kebabs here, are seriously missing out on the essence of royalty on their palates.
So giving us a taste of the City of Nawabs, we’ve chanced upon Lucknow Galawati Kabab, a hidden gem in Zakir Nagar which is making us heart-eyed! This eatery does kebab-parathas as if they’re being served right from the kitchens of Tunday in Lucknow and we’re drooling hard.
The rich Mughlai cuisine which resides in this hotel’s kitchen, has stood the test of time and made its way to Dilli from Lucknow, which simply adds to the city's old world charm.
Galawati actually translates to ‘soft’ and these kebabs have stories of their own, worthy to be told and savoured for leisure. Specially curated by the khansamas of a toothless king, Nawab Asad-ud-Daula, for his love of kebabs, these velvety kebabs are a rage in North India.
Lucknow Galawati Kabab serves kebab-parathe which will melt in your mouth and even if you were to lose out on your teeth someday, they’d still feel the same on your palate. People come from all walks of life here, to taste this meaty delight and the reasonable pricing, will make you drop by even sooner.
Along with this staple, the beef keema and chicken koftas are always on high-demand and they also whip up creamy phirnis which are good enough for the Gods!
Enjoy these delicacies as a part of your brunch or a late night dinner and trust us, you’d be bookmarking this hotel right away.
Especially during Ramzan, you’d witness thronging crowds here rushing or waiting to get a plate full of the deliciousness. Since this colony is also close to Jamia Millia Islamia University, you can expect a lot of college crowd gushing over Zakir Nagar and it’s perfect for folks on a student-budget.
Everyday of the week, you can come over and explore a dish or two and go back, happily burping away and there’d be no regrets. So now that you know where to find the best galawati kebabs in Delhi, delay no further to let your palate catch a taste of it.
