5 foods I tried in Jaunpur-Varanasi and you should too!

When I told my friends I am travelling to Varanasi, two of them gave me a list of #musttry food (and one asked me to try the local weed).

Note: This Review is skewed towards Bacon! Almost all dishes (except the vegetarian ones) at Between Breads Bandra have Bacon. This is a sign to Rejoice! Diagonally opposite Hawaiian Shack, Between Breads is a quaint little burger joint that can fit barely 15 customers at a single time.
