Surat, a major textile community and home to some interesting ancient landmarks, is a great destination for any traveler who wants a taste of authentic Indian flavors. Whether you’re embracing the festive colors of the ISKON Temple or indulging in historical recollections at Dandi; here are some spots in Surat to hit for a great morning meal.
A wholesome mouthful to sate your appetite, a home loving ambiance and a pocket friendly menu is what customers find at Jalaram Khichdi. Serving large portions of their signature meal, rajwadi khichdi (basmati rice cooked in a watery mix of Gujarati pulses) and a cool drink called chaas (butter milk) with a slight hint of fresh mint, this restaurant is all about comfort food. Exclusively vegetarian, the menu satisfies a large number of locals who love grabbing a bite of their bhajjiya platter with a sweet round of gulabjamun in the morning.
Try Mysore Café, one of the oldest restaurants in Surat that indulges travelers and locals in south Indian delicacies and the best cup of tea they could hope for! Mysore Café is frequently visited by young working professionals and college going students who prefer a midday meal over an early breakfast. Functioning for over 40 years, the restaurant is well grounded with its signature dishes: the fluffy and buttery Mysore dosa and the spicy onion uttappa.
Wok on Fire
If you’re looking for some Chinese grub, Wok on Fire is right around the corner from the Golden Square and serves authentic pan-Asian delicacies. Showering customers with an elegant blend of Asian flavors, every dish is mouth-watering. Gorge on the most recommended dish, paneer chilli alongside a plateful of Manchurian fried rice that is cooked with all the love and skill of an Indian kitchen. Known as one of the best outlets for Chinese cuisine, this restaurant offers a late breakfast of crispy Thai noodles doused in fiery Sichaun sauce.
