We can already predict that a tall glass of lassi is what you’ll need to keep cool on those lazy summer afternoons when you just want something heavy and cold to drink before you take a nap. We sure do love our lassi and we recently even went all the way to Amritsar to get some! Well, we have you covered on all the places where you can get some of the best lassi in Delhi!
1. Meghraj and Sons
Operational since the early 1900’s. they still maintain that old iconic flavour of their lassis. The Fatehpuri outlet is only equipped with four tables and they’re incredibly popular so you are going to have to be prepared to wait for your turn. They’ve got three kinds of lassi here— Rose, Kesar, and Malai, and they’re all so amazing, you will want to schedule a trip every weekend.

2. Makhan Lal Tika Ram
Their Doodh-Jalebi and Lassi are so famous that they’ve been attracting people to their sweet shop since they first opened in 1928. The lassi is churned for hours until it gets a slightly reddish colour, and it is so thick it’s almost like a whole meal in itself.

Our first stop was at Shyam Sweets, which is known for its Nagori Halwa and Desi Bedmi (which are available only during breakfast). The Lassi is so thick, you could scoop it with a spoon. It isn’t overtly sweet, but lassi does make you feel sleepy after a point of time.

They’ve upped the ante with a great new spot and have added food to their menu too! Their business dates back to two generations and originates in Karachi and they’ve got all those years of experience to count for. Their specialities still are the classic Lassi, with the addition of salt, cumin, other masalas, and even mango, and of course, the chaach (buttermilk). All of their lassis are served in small terracotta kulhads to retain the taste.
