Breakfast in Lucknow is nothing short of a Nawabi treat and one of the best breakfast destinations has to be Bajpai ki kachaudi. This is the famous and oldest shop in Hazratganj which offers tastiest puri sabzi and kachauri.

3. Rahim ke nihari kulche

The Raheem’s crusty kulcha with warm red top and soft from inside with flavoured nihari are probably the best in Lucknow. If you looking for the perfect non-veg breakfast, this is one of the perfect spots. They serve a combination of Kulchey-Nihari, a traditional breakfast curry made of soft boneless meat pieces in a light gravy served with baked pizza type leavened bread that is fluffy and very light. This is a traditional shop some 125 years old at Chowk and still maintains a secret recipe.

Situated at Chowk, Mubeen serves many dishes from the Avadhi menu and all are quite nice too, but their Pasanda Kababs is the best that I can recommend. Pasanda Kababs are thin flakes of a buffalo’s hind legs cut and marinated in spices to be wrapped on steaks and baked in earthen ovens.

The Rice is extremely flavorful and Mutton pieces are so tender and juicy that they would fall off the bone as soon as you try to rip them.

If you are craving an amazing sweet dish that can totally impress you with its taste, then Malai Makkhan is the name I would suggest.

It took a whole moonlight night to prepare it and dissolve in your mouth even before you have a chance to decipher its taste.
