The Great Indian Breakfast can never be complete without a Cuppa!
Be it tea or coffee or Juice.. we all have something we can die for!!
For me.. Its Chai!!! Any time anywhere 24hrs a day... is a time for tea!!!
Along with me, there are hard core Amritsar wallas who believe in a gud cuppa ...masala chai..
So we head to Giani Tea Stall... The lifeline of Amritsar... A favourite with the locals & the celebrities.
You wont believe it opens at 4 am in the morning.. and provides a wonderful breakfast of Omelettes,Bread butter toasts, Kachauris and Tea to the early risers..
From Morning walk enthusiasts to the truck drivers..and me.. We loved Giani Ji 's Tea.
The visit to Giani Ji s tea stall also proved the age old saying right
You need to be honest with what you do and you will earn respect in whichever field you are in...
There may be competition from cafes to lounges.. but no one can take away the experience he has..
He tells us fondly that even if 1% of change is done in the tea.I can make out from the aroma of the tea mixture. You can see the conviction in his eyes when he is brewing the masala Chai!
Cheers!!! I bet you will want some more :) .. Guess what this heavenly cuppa comes @ Rs 5! and with the twist of Elaichi and Masala @ Rs 7!
Bang opposite to Giani Ji's tea stall @ Cooper Road is the Brijwasi Chat bhandaar..
Ab chai to ho gayi, kuch shaam ke nashte ka intzaam ho bhai....
So lii jiye ho jaye taiyaar Brijwasi Chat wale laye hai 'Chaat' 'Papdii' chatakdaar...
Har mausam mei ho jaye sab right... Jab haath aaye kuch mast khasta ..in sight!!
Each of us love the snacks and chai... :) Trust me how much ever we may throng to burger joints n pizzerias.. But we all love the sight of 'Sev Puris'.. the'Bhelpuris' .. the Dahi Wadaas...& 'Pani Puri/Golgappas/Puchkas..' and Khasta(Crispy) Aloo tikkis....
Cooper Road di shaan Giani ji ki chai and Brijwasi chat ki dukaan!!
All I could write for these two shops..
You cannot stop at 1 plate You cannot stop at 2...
You wanna eat more and more.. till your stomach is full...
