The streets are adorned with eateries offering a widened scope of delicacies to foodies. Yet, there are a few restaurants that possess the aromatic powers to make one oblivious.

Let's take a virtual stroll to enjoy the flavors of Lucknow:

Tunde Ke Kebab

Probably, one of the most overstated name in Lucknowi cuisine. Yet, it stands true to all the reviews that people carry. The kebabs here are an amazing blend of taste and culture. (Aren't they cute?) These cute small roundel kebabs have a long history in its association. The inventor of this dish was Haji Murad Ali, and he happens to broke his arm during his kebab invention period. He was trying to cook the most succulent and melting kebab for the then Nawab Asaf-ud-Dawala. The reason of cooking it to be very soft was in nawab's favor, as he had lost most of his dentures. Thus, the one-armed man (Ali) got fame with the invention of very soft kebab, hence Tunde ke kebab. If intrigued, do try tunde ke kebab at Aminabad.
