We attempted to bring you the entire menu but couldn't, for who can walk through a street of diverse flavours without seeking to nibble it all! If we try to remember what fascinated us the most, we would just be muddled up amid our thoughts but Tandoori Chai, Shaahi Toast, the special stall dedicated to Chai or the Makkhan malai are surely some of the unmissable servings at Hunar Haat. You must remember that it is not every day that myriad tastes from different nooks and corners of the country come to one spot in Lucknow.
