When you visit Amritsar that’s called the land surrounded by Kulcha’s it becomes important that you find out the best AmritsariKulcha in Amritsar. So without further ado, here is the best kulcha place:
1. Bhai Kulwant Singh Kulchian Wale:
Based right outside the Golden Temple, this place serves amazing delicious Kulchas with chole and pickle. This is the best breakfast option here and we must say it’s quite affordable too!
The pricing is reasonable and ranges between 70-90 INR per Kulcha plate depending on the type of Kulcha. Oh yes, they have 4 amazing and unique kinds of Kulcha available for you to satiate your hunger pangs-Aloo, Paneer, Gobi, and Mixed.
When you visit this joint in the morning, expect it to always be filled with foodies from all around the area. Kindly remember that it does take between 10-15 minutes for the Kulchas to be prepared. So be patient and wait for your turn.
Post noon, this joint transforms itself into a general shop that sells day to day items & jewelry. Bhai Kulwant Singh Kulchian Wale is well known for breakfast and is open only till afternoon, so do visit as early as you can and begin your day with the best breakfast.
One Kulcha Plate: Starting 70 INR.
Address: Bazar Bikaneria, Near Golden Temple, Katra Ahluwalia, Amritsar, Punjab 143001
2. Chacha Lassi Wala
When you visit Amritsar and not have lassi it’s like you’re disrespecting them. We tried the Chacha Lassi Wala that like Kulwant Singh Kulcha is right outside the Golden Temple. They serve freshly crafted lassi throughout the day and served in a steel glass full until the brim. For those who feel its heavy, we are here to confirm that it’s not very thick and heavy yet doesn’t lose out on tasting delicious.
One Glass: INR 30
Address: Shop no,3, Near Jallianwala Bagh, Golden Temple Road, Amritsar, Punjab 143001
3. Kesar Da Dhaba
Some restaurants are so famous that they become a landmark! Started years ago as a small stall; Kesar Da Dhaba has now fully grown into one of the best vegetarian restaurants that are always full during the dining hours. This Dhaba is visited by both locals and tourists alike. Kesar is famous for its Thali. The traditional thali will be based on the Kulcha type you have ordered. Along with it, you will be served channa masala, dal, and raita. Trust me when I tell you that one thali is more than enough for two people unless you’re starving or have a very good appetite.
One Thali: 250 INR
Address: Chowk Passian, near Telephone Exchange, Amritsar, Punjab 143001
4. Gurdas Ram Jalebi Wala
Let’s keep some space for dessert, shall we? Post dinner, you must head out to one of the finest Amritsar famous sweets called the Gurdas Ram Jalebi Wala, which is just a few minutes of walking away from the Golden temple for piping hot jalebis. They also serve gulab jamun. One serving of Jalebi is just for 20 INR and it tastes amazingly sweet. Jalebis are highly recommended.
Jalebi Plate: INR 20
Address: Near Golden Temple, Katra Ahluwalia, Amritsar, Punjab 143001
Gudwaali (Jaggery) Tea: Amritsar is especially known for its jaggery based tea. Also called as Gudwaali Chai, you must this wherever you visit Amritsar. We tried this inside Sadda Pind and must say that considering the cold weather, it did taste absolutely delicious.
