Amritsari Express – A taste of Punjab in town

Amritsari Express is one of  the newest entry into Kolkata food scene. Located at the newly refurbished food court of South City Mall , it is a revelation of North Indian cuisine. While we would mostly associate the cuisine with a lot of non veg items , Amritsari Express is a vegetarians delight. Theirs is a fairly decent effort to bring the dhaba food culture to the city. And what could be better than enjoying delicious and indulgent Amritsari food in the comfort of an airconditioned mall. So I have not yet had the privilege to visit the city of the Golden Temple, but trust social media to tempt me every now and then with the variety of food that the city offers. Hence an invite from them was good enough for me to jump right in for an afternoon of tasting.


The menu is varied with an array of Parathas, Kulchas,Naans, Lassis and some interesting combos. We tasted a few kinds of Kulchas that came with a side of Choley, Rajma and Paneer. Special mention to Chur Chur Naan – an Amritsari Express speciality. You can choose to enjoy it with some raita or a gravy item, the list has a lot of options for you to choose from.The Lassis also deserve a special mention. There again you have a whole lot of option starting from Rose to Strawberry to Kesar to even a sugar free version. All this made avaiable to you at  a very resonable price point too.

So after a frenzied shopping run or just to savour in some indulgent food , Amritsari Express is where you should be headed. There are days when you are craving for a good vegetarian meal and trust me when i say, that they will not let you down. Amritsari Express has a strong presence in New Delhi with mulitple outlets at various malls and shopping complexes, this is their first venture in the City of Joy. We surely can show them some love.
