Heaven for Chicken Lovers!
Baba’s Chicken is conveniently located in the long-stretched Canal Road of Ludhiana. Spread across 2 floors, it has a very cozy seating space, with the upper floor having a balcony seating that overlooks the canal and buildings on the other side of the canal. The interiors have also been done well, not too dim and not too bright. Wooden walls and simple paintings don up the walls.
Their specialty lies in Butter Chicken. There are tons of places in Ludhiana that specialize in chicken, but Baba’s have kept their name high up on the list. There are other outlets as well across Ludhiana.
They also serve Mutton, Fish, Seafood and Prawns along with their famed chicken. The service is quite fast and the portion sizes are massive. We straightaway ordered the Chicken Kali Mirch Tikka. Tenderloin pieces of chicken, which were very small in size, were served in an elongated plate. The pieces were extremely juicy and soft. Totally worth it.
We then headed for the main course straight. Dal Makhani was ordered. It was very thick and again the portion sizes were good enough for 2 persons. Butter Chicken was obvious. It had a fantastic aroma and taste, It lived up to its name and our expectations. Truly amazing taste. The gravy was to die for. Very thick and wholesome. Although, the chunks of meat were not that juicy, but the gravy won the show! For the breads, the highlight of the evening were the Mirchi Paranthas. These were doughs prepped with a healthy helping of red chillies’ powder. The icing on the cake was the melted cheese on top of the parantha. The flavors were unreal. Incredible!
This place brings the Punjabi in you come out like anything. The food is utterly-butterly good. The view from the balcony is very calm and soothing. Google has this place named as Baba Chicken South City Riverside, but this ain’t a river, rather a canal. I loved the place. Good food, decent interiors and sturdy service.
