Street foods in Allahabad are very popular among the locals and tourists alike. A lot of shops in the old city area (mainly Chowk and Katra) are famous for their variety of street food. It is a foodie?s paradise as there are varieties of chaats, kebabs and sweets that can be found in its quirky eateries.
Loknath is a very narrow and crowded lane in Chowk area which is very popular with street food lovers - you would find everything from chaat to kachori to khasta/dum aloo to lassi to halwa here - to name a few. One of the most popular shops is the Hari namkeen which is famous for its unique samosas. One can expect to get a taste of Mughal cuisine as well as Awadhi cuisine. Some of the most famous eateries are Eat On Masala Restaurant, which serves finger-licking biryani and kebabs, and Netaram Kachori Sabji and Jalebi, which is known for its kachoris and jalebis prepared in desi ghee. For a sweet tooth, Heera Halwai is the best place to go and taste the delicious Gari ki Barfi.
