We wake early the next morning so we can eat breakfast before seeing more sites in Bodh Gaya, we ate breakfast at Vishnu Restaurant which is just below the apartment building of the Welcome Guest House, three restaurants are around the Baba, Vishnu and Ohm Restaurant, it’s given already that we want to try the three of them to know who cooked and serves best.
I ordered fried rice and lassi while my husband ordered Western breakfast what I mean not the typical Indian breakfast because it is giving him traveler’s sickness, he ordered macaroni with cheese, sandwich, fried eggs and corn flakes.
I didn’t like the fried rice because it smells something … their eggs was over fried too and surely they use old oil. Not sure what’s the taste of my husband’s food because I was not able to taste it, but he said it’s okay.
After having a snack in Fusion Food Factory we return to our guest house to take a nap. When dinner time came we just went down and went to one of the restaurant below the establishment, we went to the restaurant at the end which is named Baba Restaurant. There’s only few people when we came in, the server automatically hand us their menu they served both meat and vegetarian meal.
I just ordered vegetable chow mein because I am still full from our snack, my husband ordered chicken chow mein and chicken tekka. When our ordered came I felt hungry looking at the food I ordered but when I tasted it I felt disappointed because the chow mien is too spicy. I tried to eat but I can’t really take the hotness so my husband told me to order another set of chicken tekka which I did. Gladly he was not angry at me when I didn’t eat the food I ordered.
The food was good and the place was not too bad, it was just too hot and not free from mosquito.
We felt the tiredness upon taking a short break in Tamang Monastery so we called it off for the day and decided to look for a place to eat or to have a snack. We found Fusion Food Factory along the way to our guest house, the place look descent and clean so we went up to take a look. What welcomed us is a show case of cakes in different flavors and large fridge of ice creams.
They also offer lunch menu but we decided just to have a snack and feel cool by eating ice cream, it was too hot walking that day. I have ordered black forest and my husband sort of mocha cake, we both have a bowl of ice cream afterwards.
We sat near the balcony that’s why we are free to see what’s happening outside. We stayed there for quite long time, planning where we going tomorrow and what time we are going to start our sight seeing.
After our long day in Sarnath and Varanasi we finally ate at Brown Bread Bakery, with our two days stay the young guys are always inviting us to come inside every time we passed by the bakery. The place is located in the second floor, the lights are dim. Unlike most bake shop or restaurant Bread Brown Bakery is on seating on position on cushions around low tables.
We ordered few foods as we are both hungry we had garlic bread, spaghetti, brown brownies and few drinks. They served good food and we are both full when we came out.
As we are both tired and no proper sleep in the train we decided to sleep for few hours and when we woke up we ate in the roof top of the hostel, it was our late dinner, breakfast and lunch in one. We ordered few things or let me say I ordered a lot of things because I felt very hungry, we are the only one in the rooftop aside from the other younger guys that are fixing the Christmas lights along the stairs, there are also guys in the nearby rooftop who seems reviewing their lessons because they are holding a book.
Anyway I have ordered fried rice and soup, soup is really a must for me. My stomach is empty and felt cold,.
Well I also ordered chopsuey thinking it will look and taste like the chopsuey I used to know but when it was served it was the same chopsuey I had in Bangladesh so my excitement and craving for vegetables became a challenge if I can eat it this time.
My husband ordered Spaghetti, Chai and orange juice while I ordered lassi which is not in the pictures, well we’ve eaten silently but as the chopsuey is quite spicy for me I also ordered orange juice for my self.
