Feeling peckish during sightseeing – have a masala dosa

Masala Dosa

Some of the most popular sightseeing places in India are big in size. This means that you will have to do a lot of walking around. For example, let’s take the grounds of Delhi’s Red Fort for instance or the Raj Ghat (memorial to Mahatma Gandhi); they are big and you will have to do a lot of walking. Undoubtedly, some of us will get hungry and would like take a little break. I certainly start feeling peckish after all that walking around. What do you in such a situation? Why not take a break and have a cup of Indian tea and something to eat before you go to your next destination. In fact, it might be good thing to take a mini break for a moment to take it all in. The great thing about India is that you don’t have to go very far to find a street food stall or even a small restaurant – most of the time, it’s usually round the corner. Just feel free to take a look at their menu.

A place to eat in Amritsar – Shiraz’s Orchid Restaurant

Extra sauces - including American Tabasco

Last year I attending a relative’s wedding and I had the pleasure of visiting Shiraz’s Orchid Restaurant located at 4 Queens Road in Amritsar. At the time of the visit, I took some photos although I had no idea that I will be writing a blog post about it.

Anyway, I found the restaurant quite nice. The staff were attentive to the customers and accommodating of special requests. The seating area was generally quiet and typical of any mid-level restaurant in Amritsar. I found the seating area slightly open with little privacy. The eating area was generally clean, including the off-white chair seats and white table cloths. Unlike some other local restaurants, dirty tablecloths are sometimes left on the table for the next set of customers but at Shiraz’s I had no complaints.
