When you visit Amritsar and not have lassi it’s like you’re disrespecting them. So, 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, it certainly isn’t very thick and heavy yet doesn’t lose out on tasting delicious.

Some restaurants are so famous that they become a landmark!
