It is a fact that not everyone can afford restaurants for their daily lunch. At the same time, it is true that somewhere, we get turned off for hotel meals and crave for something new and homemade. If you’re looking for a homely meal that goes well with your pocket then check out Kanika Upahar. It is a tiny shop that serves delicious South Indian meals and it has been around for a really long time.
Simple Menu And Great Taste
Kanika Upahar is a known name in the area and you always see people lined up to get their afternoon lunch. As you reach, the very aroma of sambar and ghee invites you; this confirms the spot. They have a very simple menu that includes steamed rice, sambar, curry, and Paapad. Ghee will be kept on the table and you can help yourself to ample amounts of it. A plate of a meal just costs you INR 30; delicious and homemade!
If you love to have rice item then they have lemon rice and Puliyogre. Puliyogre will be made with authentic homemade Puliyogre masala which adds that needed magic. Make sure you ask for Mango pickle and try Lemon rice with it; it is a heaven collapsing moment for sure. On the other hand, if you ask then they prepare hot rotis on the spot. The uncle who runs the shop is so friendly that he literally makes you feel home.
There isn’t much to say about the shop; it looks pretty old with peeled off paint and aging curtains. But food and the homeliness that this shop offers are enticing and gives you a feeling of warmth.
On a usual note, the shop will be crowded with office goers and students. So, expect a long line during peak hours. (The place is not hygiene-friendly)
