Food is a very important element, not just as a part of daily life but also when we talk about travel. No matter how tempting the menu looks or that dish on that other table, we still want to play safe. As much as picky I am as a person, I still don’t mind exploring new food joints.
Pushkar, known as a hippie place by many people, the food is influenced by Israeli style and Indian dishes of course. You won’t find any meat or alcohol but yeah plenty of Marijuana openly sold (I am not supporting it in any way). But the vibe of the place and the endless options you get here, you won’t crave for either. I am not too fond of the city, Pushkar (I have a long list of favorite ones), but I absolutely feel like visiting Pushkar frequently because of my favorite cafes and my go to dishes. Yumm.
As I promised everyone to suggest you all the tried and tested place to eat in different cities without splurging a lot of money. Here are some.
Cafe Natures Blessings
This is a small cosy cafe off the market area, Near Zostel and Hotel Brahma Horizon. Just one or two people working. Opened pretty much all year round expect for April, May and June. You would want to visit here for these amazing these I have tried. See for yourself below.
Spout salad with feta cheese and eggplant
Blueberry yogurt with seeds, fruits and nuts.
Honey & Spice
This is in the main market area, inside a huge entrance door. You might want to keep your eyes open to find it while walking, I have missed it plenty of times. Small place, with limited seating, the person who owns the place takes the order and suggests you the best of this place, he has investigated every dish of the cafe, so its better to take his suggestion.
Muesli with fruits, nuts and seeds with watermelon juice and black ice coffee.
Out of the Blue Restaurant
This one is my absolute favorite for being right in the market area, and the view you get of the Pushkar Lake from rooftop. Ohh its very serene. 3 storey blue colour building in the market and you will recognize it. The third floor is equally nice with a very hippie vibe (its best for summers), but rooftop shouldn’t be missed in the evening.
Lemon Mint (specialty)
One glass of lemon mint would be enough to make you addicted to this, specially in summers when its too hot here, you will end up craving for more. Not too sweet, not too minty, just perfect mixture of freshness.
Felicia Toast pizza
Cecilia toast pizza
Hummus Platter with falafel and Pita. (Highly Recommended)
Do give these places a try and thank me later. Will be doing the cafes series by the name of #hungergames. So stay tuned and stay hungry.
