When the question is about food, word of mouth travels the fastest. So, we had a lip-smacking, finger-licking conversation with one of Lucknow’s most followed and appreciated food blogger- The Hungry Indian Soul, aka Abhik Haldar about Chinese food.
With his extensive experience with the newest and the oldest, the yummiest and not that yummiest places in the city, we asked him for some sincere suggestions. And the list that we have curated for you here is absolutely mouthwatering. Nothing could be more reliable than a food blogger’s personal preferences.
Wantons, Manchurians, Chop Suey, Teriyaki, and the list of endless. The big fan base of Chinese food has pushed Lucknow restaurants to cater to the hungry souls with something above the staple find in the street. Chinese and Continental restaurants are branching out into more exotic sauces and servings, sourced from the Chinese cuisine mainland. All seasoned to delight the foodies of the town.
And the places that we came to know were a surprise! Not the usual big-time names of the city, but some common and idyllic restaurants that have been contributing to the culinary excellence of the city for some time.
