Kanpur today has several great places where you can go to, to find the fix of sugar that you've been craving for.
In Kanpur, there is no shortage of great food joints, but the new year calls for something special. So, if you're looking for a brunch place that can do away with your party hangovers, then you're in for some luck.
Often the best food you can find is along the highways, at quiet dhabas where tired travellers come to find recluse. It is here that you find the best of North Indian grub, each curry similar, yet each so distinctly different that you'll be spoilt for choices. Unadulterated, robust flavours that define what food stands for.
If like us, you too are a fan of such flavours and have been looking for the same in Kanpur, fret not you won't have to go looking for a highway and a quiet dhaba. Kukkad at Nukkad is an outlet in Kanpur that serves delicious desi dishes with big Indian flavours and mouth watering taste.
The great outdoors and a touch of highway
Kukkad at Nukkad has kept things pretty simple and unpretentious. The setting is simple bamboo huts, open air garden and small tables surrounded by bamboo chairs.
The simplicity, the greenery and the casual approach is what makes this place exceptional.
If you're tired of the basic cafes and their overpowering decor, Kukkad at Nukkad will serve as a beautiful palate refresher.
Food for the soul
There are places that serve good food and then there are places that serve food so good you want to lick your fingers, the leftover sauce and the plate. Kukkad at Nukkad provides a similar experience.
The quality of food served here is simply unmatched, they use fresh ingredients, whole spices and traditional cooking methods to serve food that is familiar and nostalgic. The flavours on everything are big, which makes most of the food they offer here, simple exceptional.
We love everything tandoori here, from the chicken malai tikka, chicken tangri and murgh barra, to the chicken kali mirch. The fish curry and the mutton gharwala are as good as can be. Pair these with some naan or butter roti and you'll have a meal that is satisfying and unforgettable. they also serve some pretty great paneer tikka, paneer lababdar, dal makhani, and veg chaap curry.
Kukkad at Nukkad is one of those places that do not play around with food. You will not find an experimental menu or "something new" here, what you will find are traditional recipes, dishes we love and flavours we crave beyond all else.
