Varanasi, Benaras or Kashi - one of the oldest cities in the world - known for its religious importance, contribution to literature and culture, weaving and sarees, temples and ghats and what not. But lets be honest, when somebody says Varanasi - Whats the first thing that comes to mind ? Mouth watering food.
So not surprisingly, food was the central theme for our trip too. And here's what all you "have to eat" in Varanasi
1. Kachori Sabji
The most common breakfast in Varanasi - Kachori sabji or Poori Sabji. Where to eat that? actually anywhere. It is difficult to find a street without a temple, a kachori sabji shop and a lassi shop in Varanasi. And most of them taste good. But still some are tastier than others.
We ate kachori sabji at four places - the best I liked was the widely recommended The Ram Bhandar in Thateri Bazaar
