In November of 2018, I took my second trip to a place I’d fallen in love with: India. From November 1 through the 21st, I embarked on a nearly three-week-long, seven-city tour of this incredible country that I’d first visited only eleven months earlier in January. Instead of going solo like I did back then, this time I went with my good friend Sam from Sam and Audrey, and the experiences we had exploring the food, culture, and historical sites of this beautiful country were priceless.

With our first day in the third city of our epic trip, Amritsar, well underway, Sam and I knew we had to visit one of the city’s most famous food spots, the legendary 100-year-old restaurant, Kesar de Dhaba!

Our adventures in Amritsar continued with my buddy Deepak from Amritsar Walking Tours as he continued to show us around this lively Punjabi city. After an epic breakfast, we headed to a local market and then to Kesar de Dhaba for lunch. Come along with us as we continue to explore Amritsar!
In the walled city of Old Amritsar, there are several local markets, including a cloth market, utensil market, jewelry market, and more, and have been around for at least a hundred years! I looked at some bangles, which are worn by brides in India, to get for my wife. The market streets are really narrow, with hundreds of small shops on both sides. We also saw a really amazing sacred banyan tree that is surrounded by a small temple. Because the tree is sacred, its branches are never cut, and they grow into and through several nearby buildings!
From there, Deepak took us to Kesar de Dhaba for an authentic Punjabi lunch. I couldn’t wait to visit this legendary restaurant! The recipes there have been passed down from generation to generation for over a hundred years. After we watched the cooks prepare some Kulcha, parathas, and Maa Ki Dal (and after I threw my entire body into stirring the giant pot of dal myself), which is cooked for twelve hours, we headed out to the packed seating area, where I ordered some Kulcha with palak paneer, Maa Ki Dal, and a carrot curry. The dal was very earthy and kind of sweet, and had a layer of fat on it, and was full of delicious ghee flavor! It was probably the best dal I’ve ever had! The palak paneer was incredibly delicious, filled with spinach and had so many spices in it, it was on a whole other level of deliciousness! The carrots were very spicy, but I loved it!
Next, it was Sam’s turn to try everything, and I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say he loved this meal as much as I did. We both left the restaurant feeling completely stuffed, but we weren’t too full for some Masala chai at a fifteen-year-old shop! It was scorching hot and bursting with cardamom flavor. So good!
I hope you enjoyed our visit to the markets and the iconic Kesar de Dhaba restaurant! If you did, please give this video a thumbs up and leave me a comment below. Let’s chat about Amritsari food!
