Here are top 5 places you must eat at in Amritsar:
golden temple

Guru ka Langar: At the Golden temple there is a huge and magnificent community eating hall. Here the kitchen is run 24X7 and feeds thousands daily. The guru ka langar is free of cost and teaches you how to mingle with others and break a bread (literally). Do some sewa too.

Kesar da dhaba: The most famous dhaba in Amritsar. It is located in the by lanes near the golden temple, a rickshaw ride away. Favourite of locals and travelers , the food here is made in pure desi ghee, so go empty stomach to enjoy the heavy delicacies. Do try the amazing daal there.
Brawa da dhaba: This one gives tough competition to Kesar. It is located right next to the temple and is pure vegetarian outlet. Try the thali’s (lots of them are available) there.
Surjit: Many people say tandoori chicken can never taste the same if you have some at Surjit. This dhaba serves amazing non-vegetarian food from butter chicken to keema naan. Non vegetarians must try this one.
Also try: There are many street dishes which reflect the local delicacies and culture of Punjab. Try amritsari fish, chicken tikka,  phirni, gur halwa, malai chai, lassi, or amritsari kulche for a unique and heavy punjabi food fun!
