Who doesn’t love a well made biryani. The wafting aroma of flavoured rice, meats, and all the spices, is by far the best thing we have or will ever smell. Ask us any day and biryani will forsure be on top of our “favourite foods” list. The charm of a well prepared biryani is something we can never get over. They say, when in Rome do as the Romans do; so whenever you’re visiting Kanpur or even if you are a resident, the local favourite spot is for-sure the best place to try a truly delicious bite of biryani.
Baba Biryani in Kanpur is that place. Baba Biryani is a legend, this small joint is one of our favorite places in Kanpur and we won’t hear otherwise.
This joint is the stuff of legends, the biryani they serve here is so good that it’ll make you cry. Not literally, but internally for sure. The delicate flavour of the rice with the melt in the mouth meat is good enough to transport you to the food heaven of your dreams.
The best part about their biryani is the controlled use of floral spices and the perfectly cooked tender meat. Taking a leaf out of Lucknow’s Awadhi and Mughlai cuisine, the Kanpur biryani, is aroma forward. Playing more with flavours and floral spices than with heavy ‘masala’.
The biryani here is better than the ones you’ll find in any 5-star restaurant or expensive cafe. They know the taste and they never shrug an inch in providing the patrons with a full spectrum of flavours.
You can also find other mughlai and awadhi dishes here, such as the galawati kabab, shami kabab, malai tikka, chicken barra, mutton korma, chicken stew and more. The place is a haven for all foodies, especially the ones who are looking for a healthy dose of meat and protein.
