Among the incredible and infinite products you can find on the stalls in the Bazaar of Varanasi, Indian cakes are delicious, sweet and dry morsels of amazing taste . Prepared from pistachio, milk, almonds, coconut, figs, chocolate or nuts, these cakes sold everywhere, sometimes in very humble or lavish places and others in shops, where are sold individually and wrapped in a neat box. Obviously, buying one or the other makes the price vary almost absurdly. Even if you feel a little resentment, buying in humbler stalls is a good choice. They are delicious, and are far cheaper.
After more than ten days eating Indian food, my mouth needed to calm down a little after eating so well, but so spicy. Anis told me that adding a little sugar to your food will make it more bearable, so much spicy Indian was at this restaurant where I discovered it. You see the picture, take a handful to keep on hand and mouth like a damn good candy is up hahahahahaha I had known prior to arriving in India and after meals I would burn the mouth hahaha, I hope you serve as me.
From the roof of this magnificent restaurant in Agra, you can see wonderful views of the Taj Mahal. While you're watching the sunset and the sky's changing colours, you can sip some coke and enjoy this wonder.
Although it isn't the height of luxury, the prices are acceptable considering it's location, the souvenir street market leading to the main doors of the Taj Mahal. The 25 hours Coffee Club as well as serving sodas, teas and coffees, also delicious, but peculiar sandwiches as they're served with a touch of spice that makes you remember you're in India. The wifi is free, but the connection is desperately slow. Interestingly, water is perhaps the most expensive drink, I guess for being in demand. If you ask they can prepare a bag to carry your picnic on the city tour.
The Bonappetit restaurant is located in one side of the Hall of Hotel Taj Mahal, and like the hotel, this restaurant is one of the best dining options near the Taj with good service and a reasonable price. The restaurant offers buffet and menu, but I recommend the dishes on the menu and especially the rich spicy tomato soup with mint leaves, the better to line the stomach and make it as spicy as you like. The tofu with pea and lamb (a strange combination) also deserves a special mention, as a kind of spring roll stuffed chicken with crispy vegetables. The only downside, is the air conditioning at full speed, and if you are unlucky enough to fall just below a grid, the cold is guaranteed. Otherwise, highly recommended.
To go to India and not try a lassi would be like going to Valencia and not trying horchata. Varanasi is one of the cities in India where many stalls make this drink from yogurt and mixed fruit, most traditionally mango. A variety of this drink is called special lassi, or Bhang lassi, which is prepared with a cannabis bhang. Although this type of lassi is legal in many parts of India and is often consumed during religious festivals, but be very careful because the effects can be quite undesirable if you have more than one or you are not used this type of "concoction." I do not recommend bhang lassi, but if you want to try one, the mango one can quench your thirst, as well as being more nutritious than water.
