Who is a meat fanatic? Well, the person who cherish, appreciate, and gives respect to meat that it deserves and above all this that person should be capable enough to identify a perfect meat. For me meat which is cook to perfection, where its color and texture are complimenting each other, the aroma should run water in my mouth that’s what I call a perfect meat. So here is the list of 21 places in Ahmedabad which serve superb forms of meat from a wide range of cuisine.
1. Magic Chicken
It’s a small place situated on the edge of the city with outdoor seating. It serves Lebanese food with only four items on the menu. My personal favorite is the Shawarma and Shavai which are just amazing and they serve it with mayo, in house sauce, pickled carrots and fried chilies. If you ever visit Ahmedabad you must go there and try all four items on there menu. The cherry on top is that it won’t make a dent in your pocket.
Address: Ground Floor, Regency Park Plaza, Opposite Amber Tower, Sarkhej, Ahmedabad
2. Dheemi Aanch
Well if you are looking for a place to hangout with your friends which has decent ambience, then this place is perfect for you. The food is just delicious, all fish dishes are a must try. The chicken and mutton are also good. It’s a small place with the limited amount of seating arrangement. I would recommend making a reservation if you have the plan for a weekend dinner.

This place is in the heart of the city. They offer Mughal and Awadhi cuisine for which I crave a lot.
