    yummy, isn't it?
    1 more image

    this restaurant of a small hotel serves yummy food.. however, the followings may be the reasons why the food taste so "yummy" & distinctive:
    1. the "chunks" of "cow dung" being dried just outside its window (pic 1)
    2. the dirt-encrusted tableware
    3. the "recycled detergent container" used to contain take-away food

    However, the above are parts and parcels of a backpackin trip and they are what makes a trip or an experience unique!! My suggestion, bring some wet tissues, ignore the aromatic smell across the window and do not take-away food!

    Bon Apetite...

    Eat the oranges: Eat the oranges

    I don't have picture on this one but I love the oranges here so much. Fruits can be seen selling on the street mobile stall or vendors. They sell mostly oranges, apples, grapes, bananas, etc. For me, I never buy the apples and grapes, I only buy the oranges and bananas. They sell at 30Rs for 5 oranges and it taste so sweet. Bananas are good too.

    Local Instant noodles: Local Instant noodles

    I bought one pack to test its flavour when I was here in Varanasi. The noodles was a product of Maggi and the flavour here is Masala, famous all over India. I boiled the water using my own boiler, the taste was fantastic, you should try one. The grocery shop owner sold me 11Rs per pack, probably expensive but I just want to test, did not bargain.

    Ghat restaurant: Ghat restaurant

    At the ghat or riverside, the restaurants are in this kind of setup, you don't have McDonald's here nor Starbucks Coffee. What you can try is to sit on the staircase and see what they have in there. I saw many tourists drink tea there and my boatman told me the best ghat restaurant was the one with chairs, so please look out for chairs.

    Hmm I forget the name of this...

    Hmm I forget the name of this rooftop restaurant, but I can tell you where it is. When you are at Main Ghat (the main boating and ritual place in Varanasi)you walk or go by boat in the direction of the Burning Ghat. On the left side of the Burning Ghat you walk all the way up. On the left side there are some small fences, get through them and there is the restaurant. You'll have to climb a lot of stairs, because the restaurant is way on top.
    The view is wonderful, so spectacular!

    Favorite Dish: Banapancakes with honey! This is so tasty, you'd better order two :)

    Restaurant El Parador is nice...

    by sandravdp Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant El Parador is nice when you like to have something else then Indian food. The owner is Nepalese and makes all sorts of European food, like Italian pizzas, French fish dishes etcetera. Everything he makes might be European, but you must remember that your still in India. All meals still have a kind of Indian taste.
    The restaurant has a good atmospehere, the only bad thing here is that you will have to wait a long time for your food!

    Favorite Dish: Tomatoe soup with cheese and bread, naan bread, a steak with french fries.

    There are rooftoprestaurants...

    There are rooftoprestaurants like this everywhere in Varanasi. When you pick out one, always make sure you visit a clean looking place. Otherwise you can be almost sure the food isn't too hygienic too.

    Apsara Restaurant: Apsara Restaurant

    There restaurant is well kept as the motto, 'Yes we are less dirty...' suggests. The owner is fond of the color blue as you'll see from the decor, and he's likely to engage you in some interesting conversation and India and it's culture.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Butter Masala

    Curry

    Again, vegisterian curry would be the best and the only thing I could suggest. I was invited into a local while I was walking on the back street.
