Lucknow is home to innumerable monuments and heritage buildings that sit on the cityscape like jewels on a crown. These ancient buildings and formidable monuments carry with them the story of the glorious days the city has seen and even tell of the city's troubled past. One of these breathtaking pieces of architecture is the Kothi Darshan Bilas; a queen's residence designed with elements from the European as well as Mughal influences.

The entire world is currently fighting a long and weary battle with the novel Coronavirus. While healthcare professionals, police and administration are in the frontlines of this battle, several volunteers and civilians have also joined forces in our combined effort to defeat the deadly virus. Several art students from Lucknow University also came forward to support the cause and spread awareness about the contraction of Covid-19.
The looming Coronavirus threat has truly brought life around us to a complete standstill. With nowhere to go and not much to do, most of us are left to our own devices, dreaming the kind of life we'll have once the pandemic is over. However for a foodie, most of these dreams consist food. It is the one thing we think about the most and the most often, oh how we wish we could make these dreams come true!
A month away from our favourite restaurants and delivery kitchen has made us realise that good food is something we just can't take for granted. However, the exciting news is that the government might consider opening few businesses as the frequency of reported cases are slowing down. So now that there's a real possibility that the government may allow some of our favourite food chains and restaurants to finally open for delivery, here's a list of places we just can't wait to order from!
Camcook<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMjc4MTc1OC9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0NDM5MDExN30.dcQ3rEkWfcTpN6GKDOCcbvRtvXz8556ypMwCyxDxjxU/img.jpg?width=980" id="0e676" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="80cd0cb2a13a9478ef462d2a0adc2988" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p>Known for its unparalleled smoky butter chicken, Camcook will surely be the first restaurant we order from. A large bucket of smokey delicious chicken soaked in creamy broth or with a few buttered up naans and we'll enter the food heaven we've been denied for the past month. they even have a great selection of vegetarian curries, sandwiches and wraps that are just comforting enough to make us forget all about the fatal situation we're in right now.</p>

A roll is a meal that is easy, filling and oh-so-delicious, it is also one of our favourite things to stuff our faces with and what better place to order a classic roll from than Rollarappa. All we want is a chicken kali mirch roll and an iced tea to make it go down smoother.</p>

These little bombs of meat and flavour are often all we can think about and want. The day that Tunday Kababi offers its first order, we'll be clicking away hoping to get the delicate meat patties and soft Mughlai parathas we're so familiar with. </p>
Nosh<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMjY0MzkyNS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYxOTU1NzMyMX0.aPZG_Ktrxtx5s0tqtPMg4xyMlSm2Tdy6DoXWN2721x4/img.jpg?width=980" id="cbd37" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="dd4d2b6aff432f7714a66715113c03dc" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" />images.assettype.com<p>Another great place to order from and truly a Mughlai lover's paradise, Nosh by Bowls and Boxes is one of the newest addition to our list of favourites. The kitchen is known for bringing authentic Mughlai flavours to our doorstep packed in dainty boxes and cooked in a hygienic way, words that sound like sweet honey to our ears in the current scenario. We cannot wait to order the keema biryani, the Awadhi biryani, the mutton do pyaza, paneer butter masala or even the sewai.</p>
The Hazelnut Factory<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzE2MDgwMi9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYxODEyNDIxMH0.8uIyPalETiDYda3xHHrPARJWUwUcGPaq83nCeiWU7jQ/img.png?width=980" id="29347" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="57fc38a9e7799abd7839d6d7238de65c" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p>Another one of our all time favourites, The Hazelnut Factory has done wonders to baked goods and we just can't have enough. Be it the red velvet cupcakes, the rainbow pastries, cheese brownies or the classic THF cheesecake, there's nothing we'd rather have after a big meal than the desserts from here. Plus, who can forget their mac and cheese, the delicious sandwiches or the Indian sweets we so adore.</p>

And we're not just excited about getting our hands on dosas, but the uttapams, the soft and fluffy idlis or even the deep fried vadas. Tamil Nadu Dosa is ever South Indian food lover's go-to spot and we're hoping we get to eat here soon enough.</p>
Coronavirus outbreak and its fear has made life difficult for us all. While a strict lockdown has been enforced in India, trapping most of us inside our own homes, the situation seems to have lighten only in the slightest. One of the most gruelling aspects of the lockdown is the boredom that comes with it. However, Earth Day is here with a charming gift for the residents of Lucknow as a meteor shower is expected to light up the city's night sky.
The Lyrids meteor shower will be visible to Lucknow residents tonight from 9:30 PM and if like us you're sitting at home getting bored out of your mind, the shooting stars are sure to cheer you up!
Lucknow is packed full of historical gems and relics, each with a distinct story to tell. Architecture is one of the biggest fronts on which this inherent charm and old-timey vibe of Lucknow relies, hence architecture and old buildings in the city have long been telling the tales of a time that once was. Lucknow's Kothi Alamara or Alambagh Palace is one such monument which has a long story to tell, of love partition and war.
The Coronavirus pandemic has claimed thousands of lives and made everyday a nightmare for people around the world. With the virus spreading like wildfire around the globe and in India, now is the time that we need every idea and every strong mind working towards the issue. We are all united in our fight against Covid 19 and if you're someone who is full of ideas and wants to work closely with the government to give them shape this 'Hackathon' is just what you need.
We come across gut wrenching stories of suffering and hunger on the daily, where people without home, shelter, food and money, are forced to live on the streets and on the benevolence of strangers. The lockdown has opened our eyes to the economic disparity, the poor and their fight for survival. Social media has been a game changer when it comes to making us face the kind of society we have created and somehow take onus of our responsibilities.
In the Corona stricken world, social media is helping people reach out to various organisations and even establish new organisations to feed the hungry mouths of Lucknow. Today we bring you two such initiatives which have realised the potential of social media and community support, saving thousands from the clutches of hunger.
The Coronavirus pandemic has dug its nails deep into our psyche and has completely overturned everyday life for us. With all of us stuck at home and all of our favourite kitchens and restaurants shut down, the foodie in us is waiting for the lockdown to get over with bated breath.
Lucknow is a goldmine for foodies and has a number of places in its kitty and right now, the only thing keeping us sane is thinking about food and what all we can have.
So here's a list of 15 of our favourite places we've been waiting to visit once the lockdown is done with.
