Food Guide: where to eat in Gwalior?

what to eat in gwalior

You haven’t figured anything of the city if you haven’t figured where to eat the local cuisine. Isn’t it? Gwalior offers a range of cuisine which is a reflection of its glorious past. While the vada pav, poha and dabeli carts showcase the Maratha influence over the city; gathering of localities in the morning to feast on Bedai, kachori and laddus smells of its geography. But, this isn’t it. Dining out in Gwalior would be completely different experience as it offers you kebabs and Korma giving you a whiff of the rich and royal Mughal period. Isn’t this enough for packing your bags to Gwalior and experience the richest and finest eating experiences in the country? If you haven’t read my previous posts on Gwalior on what to do and where to stay, you can read them here and here.

Hotel Adityaz: A good budget hotel in Gwalior

Finding a good budget hotel (and, which fits your liking!) is always a fuss. If you aren’t a “planner” it can definitely be a tedious job. We had to plan a two-day stay at Gwalior for a meeting and we wanted to be somewhere close by the venue. When we started searching we had only one option. Now, I was in a fix. This can be an equally good or bad news. So I crossed my fingers and an eye to look at the reviews expecting it to be good (so my search gets over with one click). And, hooray! The reviews were up to the mark. 1. Booking using makemytrip.com We used makemytrip.com to book the hotel. It is one of the trustworthy websites you can use in India to book flight tickets as well as stays. They have a new feature of reserving the room and paying at arrival. So, that was a fantastic upgrade to the services provided by them! I could see the hotel and the rooms before deciding if I really want to stay there. Isn’t that very convenient? 2. Location We got onto driving from Delhi via Yamuna Expressway and reached Gwalior. It was easy to find […]

Gwalior Fort: A day well spent

gwalior fort

Recently, Mr Daaku and I made a road trip to Gwalior (I shared lots of pictures of Gwalior fort on insta, click here to see a few) and I have been wanting to write about it since. Frankly speaking, we had no plans to roam around the city when we left Delhi. Precisely why, I did not carry cameras and had to make do with iPhone 6 plus. We had planned out a 2 day stay, out of which one day was booked for a day long meeting. Howeverrrr *pauses*, there was an unexpected delay in the work (read, the excitement in between the lines) and we had to reschedule our stay for two more days! Guess, who said voila and started dancing? Of course, ME! I had exactly one and a half day to explore the city of historic events. I felt like the stopwatch is on and I have to make every second count. Have you ever felt  the adrenaline rushing through your body because you have so much to do? So, I researched a bit and quickly finalised a checklist, a rather short one for Gwalior. Although it encompassed a terrific experience, it definitely did not entail all […]
