Amritsar is a city of 3 things. History, Chilling and FOOD. If you want good Amritsari food, there are a couple of places you might want to check out.
1. Chungi wala Kulcha, Race Course Road / Maqbool Road intersection, Joining Green Avenue locality.
2. Go into the bylanes near the Golden Temple to explore the REAL, OLD Amritsar where all it's golden history is hidden under a seemingly un-tidy cover. You'll find loads of small shops like 'Amarchand Halvai', 'Goenka Halvai' etc. over there
3. Go to 'Kanha Sweets' on Lawrence Road on a Sunday morning between 9:00 am and 12:00
am for fabulous poori cholle and halwa.
4. Hotel Ista on G.T. Road, Crystal Restaurant on Queen's Road, M.K. Hotel in Ranjit Avenue and The Astoria in Ranjit Avenue for formal dining
