If you are looking for a pocket friendly, healthy and authentic punjabi cuisine in JLT area, Egg dhaba is the best option I can suggest you. Not all the dishes they serve are egg based, they do have other vegetarian and non veg dishes as well.
We decided to dine in on a saturday for lunch. They have a spacious indoor dining area as well as outdoor area facing the lake.
The staffs and the manager were quite friendly and suggested us the specialties that they have.
Called for a mango lassi and nimbu pani to start with. The lassi was creamy and smooth and loved the flavor of mango in it. Nimbu pani was quite refreshing.
Maska bun omelette was the one we chose among starters. It was a different omelette than we see normally with buns stuffed inside the omelette. The omelette was fluffy and soft and it was pretty good.
Next was the dish of the day which was Amritsari Kulcha with channa. The kulcha was stuffed with paneer, chilli , potato and it was a good combination with channa curry.
We went on to try the chicken tikka since we thought of trying something in non-veg. It was cooked well and the marination was done properly.
We also got to try the masala omelette curry which is prepared using strips of omelette in a spicy thick gravy. Another specialty dish of Egg Dhaba and it did not disappoint us either.
To end our lunch, A ginger-karak tea is a must try here and is served with namak pare. The karak tea was the best I had in for a while and the namak pare along with it is just pure happiness.
Verdict: There are several reasons for us to go back here again when in JLT, one good reason is the Karak tea, masala omelette curry and various other dishes in the menu which we did not try.
