Looking for something purely desi?
Kanpur is dotted with a number of places where you can indulge in a little pet-puja. Yet, if you're looking for a decent place where you can find some delicious desi grub, you'll be searching for a needle in a haystack. Not many places in the city serve food that is both familiar and delicious, let alone a sit down one.
So when looking for a place where you can have something 'desi', Anaicha's Food Joint in Kanpur is the place to be at. Simple, reasonable and yet outstanding, the joint is a savipur for those longing for 'ghar ke hath ka khana'.
Food is the way we comfort ourselves when things around us are going not so great. So when we think of home cooked meals, the though itself fills us with warmth and comfort. It is quite rare, that we find the same feeling or even a similar taste when out and about carrying on with the usual chores of everyday life. Which is where places like Anaicha's Food Joint come into play.
Warm, delicious and absolutely underrated, Anaicha's Food Joint falls in the league of those few places in the city where you can grab a good meal akin to home cooked food.
We are especially a fan of the simple dal fry, dal makhani, kofta, paneer masaledar, Murgh jungli, Gosht rogan josh and fish kali mirch. You can pick anything off of the menu and feel the taste of simple flavours and delicious pairings.
They even have great paneer pakodas and tea for those who're looking for something light and simple.
Though, the ambience isn't much, the food makes for it in every possible way. The place is thronged by locals and visitors alike and is ideal for family meals or late night dinner shenanigans when all you care for is a butter naan and some dhaba style chicken curry.
