Summers are almost upon us and our undying love for street food will never cease to exist but in this heat, our search for something refreshing yet light is always on!

Feeling thirsty? Grab a chilled lassi. Tummy is tossing? Relish a plate of dahi batashe or dahi bade!

Summer munchies are usually synonymous with snacks lapped in generous amounts of thanda dahi and tbh, dahi is such a versatile item! It comes with its fair share of benefits, is a palate-pleaser and is the best refreshment option during this scorching heat.

So we just spotted the GPO Ke Thande Dahi Bade shop at Narpat Khera, for all those who’ve been wondering about the disappearance of this iconic street snack hub from the GPO’s pavement!

One piece of Dahi Bada is priced at ₹30

Started some 20 years ago by Sur Pal Singh, GPO Ke Thande Dahi Bade has stood its stance as a prominent shop selling the BEST dahi bade in town! It looks like an old puny kiosk which houses a few chairs and tables and honestly, the taste of their thande-meethe dahi bade makes up for the crammed ambiance.

The curd they use is hung for 2-3 hours before the final preparations which makes its texture and taste, thicker and silkier which is the major USP of this outlet.

The dahi samosa here is also a mass favourite and the staff is confident that once you taste them, the deliciousness will pull you back in time and again!

So head over to this Narpat Khera outlet and cherish the nostalgia on your taste-buds because some things don’t change- like our love for GPO Ke Thande Dahi Bade and its authentic thanda and chatpata taste!

Location: Narpat Khera, Lucknow.

Cost: ₹120 approx. for two!

Timings: 10am - 9:30pm
