Dhabas in Amritsar

A city like Amritsar has proven to be not only culturally rich, but modern too. Places here are both new and old and one can taste different shades based on their preference. But in this modernity, the rustic element associated with the city cannot be ignored. You cannot happen to overlook the fact that Amritsar contains many areas, which are not like a modern city but are thoroughly enjoyed.

Be it the tiny shops in the streets or the lanes which remind you of beautiful Punjabi villages, Amritsar has it all. Just like this is the Dhaba culture in Amritsar. Dhabas are similar to restaurants but they are tinier places. The name basically suggests road side restaurants, but with its popularity it has entered cities too. The look largely remains like a roadside restaurant with open air seating space and extremely quick service. The food too remains authentic and close to the city.

For here, it is simply the taste that matters and people come in huge numbers to eat the best in Amritsari food.
