Location, ambiance, and food.. What i cud say, BRILLIANT!!! the restaurant is an open air kinds.. You are surrounded but not just rose bushes with full blooming flowers, but sitting under a big chinar tree.. the place is so alluring.. this is a garden cafe in Srinagar, Kashmir... and also known as one of the oldest restaurant in Lal Chowk. Anyone can just drop in here to relax and have the meal in a peace.. What a place to me..
dari luar, it's just nothing.. like kedai kat kampung je.. macam warung - warung gitu..
ini kira main entrance dia lah.. during my first visit dulu, i masuk dari arah lain.. means belakang dia..
then masuk ke this compound, you will like it.. esp masa yang kitarang pegi ni spring time.. best sangat.. sejuk.. yang ini, means those who love to be indoor, boleh lah masuk ke dalam sana tu... but for us, we love to be outdoor.. lebih alami gitu.. sambil menghidu udara segar.
that building is the general post office.
This ancient restaurant which is approximately about 100 years old.. It serves you with excellent coffee like many others say.. but i took Chai here which was served in the old time bronze kettle..
My chai being served by the handsome old man in 2012..
this might be Khemma.. (frankly speaking, i don't know the name).
these dishes being served to me.. the rice was superb.. dan lauk - lauk dia, perrgghhh!!!! so yumm.. love it so much..
then, this during my second visit.. we took Kebab.. so big and yumm..
i hardly remembered the name.
apa - apa pun, it's yumm..
