The joy that food brings is true joy.
The lanes of Lahore where this chapter in history had begun. Late Shri Amolak Ram Chopra laid the foundations of a legacy that bears fruit even today. This is the original Kake Da Hotel where passers-by would be enticed by the fragrances wafting through the open doors. The authentic tastes of Punjab soon found favour with the people and the hotel became a landmark at Mall Road in Lahore.
Partition ??a dark period in the country?? history. It was a tumultuous time when tough decisions had to be made?the decision was tough. With a heavy heart, a shift from Lahore to Delhi became imperative. The now iconic Kake- Da -Hotel in Lahore set out for the capital city of Delhi to start the next leg of its journey.
New place, new clientele but the same taste, the same passion. The shift from Lahore to Delhi was a long one. Challenges were many.
But resolve and passion saw to a successful transition. Kake Da Hotel had now arrived in Delhi and as in Lahore, soon stamped its presence on the food landscape. The authentic flavours and the fresh ingredients had Delhi licking its fingers.
The year 1954 saw yet another transition ??Kake- Da -Hotel shifted to Connaught Place, the heart of the city. This was the commercial hub of the city. It was vibrant and pulsating. People thronged to the city?? center to shop, to unwind, to get some good food?what better for it than Kake- Da -Hotel?
The food ethos of Shri Amolak Ram Chopra was taken forward by Shri Ameen Chand and Shri Rangeela Singh who followed in the footsteps of their Guru and ensured that the legacy of good food that Kake- Da -Hotel had become synonymous with would live on. Through the years they have maintained the same taste and the same high standards that lured the guests.
The bustling Connaught Place in the year 1976. After we set shop here, many others followed suit. The outer circle saw a mushrooming of eateries. But the taste of Kake- Da -Hotel continued to tantalise the taste buds of its guests and remained the favourite.
Kake- Da -Hotel ??the eatery every Dilliwala likes to boast about. Today, when Delhiites talk about their favourite eating joints, the Hotel features very prominently. The foundation that was laid down in 1931, has today taken very deep roots. With Captain Arun Chopra at the helm, it has become the go ??to place for the lovers of good, authentic Punjabi food.
The legacy of excellence began with Shri Amolak Ram Chopra who was an exceptional talent and a master of true Punjabi cuisine. It was his vision and passion that lives on even today.
Our legacy began in the year 1931 and we are carrying forward with the tradition with the Same Menu, The Taste and the Same Love and Care.
David Rocco, internationally renowned chef had this to say about Kake Da Hotel ????hey have some of the best chicken gravies. The food is fantastic. In the onion gravy, you cannot detect the onion.
