Yogi effect: Connoisseurs of Awadh Mughlai cuisine in a tizzy
Lucknow: The crackdown on slaughterhouses has impacted badly the traditional eatery destinations of the Nawabi city. Leaving Lucknowites in disquiet, the World famous eatery of the Tunday Kababi has become one of the sufferers of it, following the enthronement of Hindutva mascot Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of the state.
A visit to Lucknow is incomplete without tasting mouth-watering kebab at Tundey Kababi. But, non-veg lovers became victim of the crackdown as Chowk branch of the century-old Nawabi cuisine had to put its shutter down following the unavailability of meat.
People working there told newstrack.com that the meat shops were closed throughout the day owing to which they failed to run the restaurant.
The other non-veg shops which sell buffalo meat near Akbari Gate were also shut down. Those serving chicken and mutton were, however, continued to give the non-veg lovers, a delightful escape.
As many as nine meat shops were closed but as per the Lucknow Municipal Corporation, about 200-250 illegal meat shops are still running free.
“There are shops running in shanties that are not following norms. Such shops need to be regulated or closed down,” Chief Veterinary Officer of the LMC AK Rao said.
