Sunday, if not any other day, definitely brings the Punjabi foodie in all of us back to life. We avoid eating Punjabi food for we want to stay active during weekdays, but tell me isn’t that the time you’re most sleepy?
Come on! Be honest. Haven’t your professor, boss or colleague caught you dozing during class or work?
That’s my point. Why blame Punjabi food then?
Anyways, the long awaited weekends are days to unapologetically and remorselessly delve on lavish Punjabi feast. And, Chandigarh as is already called a foodies paradise, has best finger-licking Punjabi breakfast eating joints.
- Sai Sweets, Sector 22 B, Chandigarh
If I recollect and count then it has been a total of 20 years that I have known this place and believe you me since then their food has always tasted the same. They serve the yummiest Chole Samosa and Chole Bhature in the city. And Apni desi chai that comes after this mouth watering Punjabi Breakfast is simply out of this world. There preparation is hygienic and fresh. You all should also try this place for a lovely family get together.
- Stop ‘N’ Stare CITCO Food Joint, Sector 10, Chandigarh
If you want to enjoy your food sitting in the lap of nature then CITCO food joint, opposite art gallery sector 10 is the place to be. They prepare the best Rajma/Kadhi/Cholle Chawal. Their open air sitting arrangement has always been a delight for the students and office goers. There are open till 6 p.m in the evening. Go and grab your delicious breakfast or lunch there.
- Bhoj Restaurant-Hotel Divyadeep, Sector 22 B, Chandigarh
They serve pure vegetarian thali for both lunch and dinner. They begin their day at 10 a.m. And they have both mini and large thali which includes dal, subzi, curd, rice, pickle, chappati and chutney. For a wholesome homely food I always prefer this place. There traditional decor has that unique magnetic effect that always pulls me towards itself.
- Punjabi Dhaba, Sector 35 D, Chandigarh
No matter how many lovely cuisines we eat but Punjabi’s can never stay away from their paranthas. Punjabi Dhaba sector 35 is the best place to grab authentic tandoori paranthas with curd and pickle.
Can there be a better way to begin your holiday than this?
Oh!Wait!Wait! I forgot to mention their masala chai. You must not miss your chai when you go there.
- Kuki’s Hot Shop, Sector 28 D, Chandigarh
Though it is a very small eating joint but there Kulche Chole are the best in the city. There is this saying in the world of cookery that ‘You cannot make a high standard meal with sub standard ingredients’. And Kuki’s Hot shop truly stands by this. They are more into takeaway orders.
