In winters Chowk is good for Makkhan Malai which is a sweet delicacy and very popular in Lucknow. There are many good sweet shops for Khasta, Jalebi etc. It's morning paradise for foodies

See two distinct faces of Lucknow- Gol Darwaza separates the two. Stroll Chowk area which satiates all senses quite literally. Great food, skill fully made local clothes, perfumes etc. Try original tundey kebabs just 300 m from Gol Darwaza. If biryani is your calling visit...More

As Lucknow is just like Delhi, where old and new city is there. Old city has not wider roads but new one like gomti nagar etc have, You may opt either car or three wheeler. For old city three wheeler is better.
