Ram Bahadur Parantha Bhandar 

No one can say no to a delicious, buttery parantha. No matter where you visit in India, you will always want to try this classic Mughlai cuisine. Wheat parathas are filled with everything from shredded potatoes to grated cauliflower to carrots. It is considered to be the greatest morning meal. In Agra, you will get the tastiest parathas, served hot with tangy chutneys and pickles that will explode your taste buds. 


Mughlai food is Agra's hallmark and is regarded as a  legacy from the Mughal Empire. As what was once the Mughal capital, Agra has some of the greatest Mughlai cuisine in the country. Karim's, which is close to the Jama Masjid, is a culinary institution noted for its delicious kebabs, particularly the melt-in-your-mouth "Galouti Kebabs." This is a gourmet joy thanks to the fragrant spices and delicate meat.

Sadar Bazaar is truly a heaven for all the foodie travellers.
