Varanasi Can Be Called The Food Heaven Of UP!


Food is a very important part of the culture in Varanasi. People here are warm and they welcome you with yummy food. And the best part is they don’t serve anything without an anecdote as accompaniment. And you get so much variety here that even a week will fall short. You get to choose from kachori, paan, lassi and thandai. You can go to a restaurant or grab a bite from the street. And don’t be surprised if you get wood-fired pizza at one of the ghaats. We have picked up some of the best joints for you today.
