The Keshari Restaurant has been a city institution for quite a few decades. Made famous for its scrumptious local cuisine and friendly service, it features a convivial setting, complete with wood-paneled ceilings and walls. A hit with vegetarians, the restaurant's menu has more than 40 types of cottage cheese gravies, along with other toothsome picks.
The crispy Kachaudi (round balls prepared with flour and stuffed with baked lentils and spices) can be rightly called as North India's favorite snack. At Varanasi's Kachaudi Gali, you would probably savor some of the most delectable kachauris that the country has to offer. Counted as one the city's top landmarks, it is always swarmed with food lovers hopping in to devour those piping hot crispy balls served with imli (tamarind) and chana (gram) chutney.
Run by the Japanese woman Megu, along with her Indian business partner Sanjay, the Megu Cafe offers diners a restful break from the chaotic alleys outside. This cozy restaurant boasts an exciting and authentic menu where all of the dishes are prepared by a skillful Japanese cook. Cute wooden chairs and tables with glass tops make for a pretty picture while the chopsticks invite the initiated to try their hand at it! While Japanese tourists understandably flock here, locals and others are not left behind. Closed on Sundays.
Lassi, a yogurt drink topped with fruits and spices, is hugely popular in the Northern side of India, and Varanasi has the atmospheric Blue Lassi Shop to boast an exclusive shop. Painted in blazing blue, the small outlet is on the narrow alley leading to the mighty Kashi Vishwanath Temple. The small seating area has a nice display of photographs. Served in earthen pots, the drink is a must-try while in India; look no further than this blue laden charmer to try it out.
Located at the Kashi Vishwanath Temple area, Shanti Cafe offers a refreshing change from the South Indian cuisine which is usually found in the area with some exotic Japanese delicacies along with a couple of Korean dishes. The restaurant's menu consists of delicacies like Miso Soup with Pork, Kimchi Cold Soba and Pork Curry which is a far cry from the vegetarian food found in the area. A range of traditional Indian beverages like masala chai and lassi are served alongside Japanese teas and coffee to provide some variety. Although the decor is minimal, the food alone is quite a draw for tourists.
