It May not be the most comfortable place to dine in but if you’re looking for something cheap and authentic, I’d recommend the bustling Tekka market for its local eats be it Indian food in terms of thosai, naans, Pratas or Chinese food.

Highly recommended if you’re into cooking and eating! Eat your meal there in the morning (7:30)as the vendors prepare their food, and be wowed by the constantly changing aroma that fills up the air. The taste? phenomenal!

I came to the food court and I must say the sham el Punjab (roughly the name) has to be the best curry I’ve had. It was authentic rustic and so so flavoursome. Not to mention the great price. O also buy a drink from...More
