Pick up from the advised location in Amritsar. After basic instructions and introduction from our tour guide as well as driver, we will start the drive and go off to explore the street food of Amritsar, like a local.
We will drive on one of the posh roads of the city for a while which will lead us to one of the best street food areas in the city. We will start our flavourful journey with our first food item called Pakoras at one of the most famous pakora shops. It’s made of deep-frying batter-coated vegetables served with spicy and sweet sauce or chutney.
From there, we will go to our next stop that serves Roasted Momos (Tibetan dumplings) and Veg Soya Chaap. Momos have been adopted by the locals by giving it our own twist – barbequed with special spice marinade. Veg Soya Chaap, made out of soy extract, is also roasted and mixed with cream and a mix of sauces. Roasted Momos and Soya Chaap are a few of the most popular street food items of pop-culture Amritsar locals.
Moving on, we will ride to a very famous and locally loved shop that serves a childhood favorite Indian street food item called Aam Papad. This food item is made from pure mango pulp and flavored with a mix of Indian spices. This street food shop has been in business for the past three generations and the owners are very lively!
Riding through the main market, we will go to our next stop for a traditional Punjabi dinner at an Amritsari Dhaba. The traditional Punjabi Thali that we will devour would consist of the Maa-Ki-Dal which is poured into a steel cup filled Desi Ghee and minced onions raised to a lava-like temperature and is served with a special traditional layered bread called Lachha Parantha which is baked in clay oven and a unique variety of pickle usually found only at a place like this.
Before ending our journey, we will make our last stop at a traditional dessert shop. We will eat two of the most delicious and mouth-watering sweets, which are arguably incomparable to anything in the whole world – Gulab Jamun and Jalebi. Our street food tour would have been incomplete without adding these delicacies.
After an ungodly amount of feasting, we will ride back to our bicycle garage point and bid farewell to our fellow foodies while we take some of the last tour pictures and share memories.
