Lunch was not photographed, as we were too busy eating. In Paris, at a Japanese/French fusion restaurant, we ate Bonito fish with amazing vegetables and rice, drank Cahors wine, sampled creative puddings ... poached pear with cardamom, coffee cream, tiramisu, was one, and kaki fruit crumble with unidentified spices was the other. Then coffee with mini-macaroons.

At the famous Deena Chat Bhandar in Varanasi I tried tamatar ki chat for the first time. It's a hot chaat and unlike any other I've tried before, but very very delicious.

I also had their dahi kachori. Great!

And at another shop I had yummy UP ki poori sabzi.

The last pic is of the Ghats lit up for the Dev Diwali Celebrations.

What's American cheese? And more importantly, why would you combine it with prosciutto?

NB- your Spanish meals of November 9th and 10th made me very envious. But I feel a bit better now that you're no longer in Spain.

The name gives it away, American (read: highly processed) cheese:



And melted over garlic toast, with grilled prosciutto and a poached egg is one of my regular weekend guilty pleasures.

Paneer Labrador: Is it freeze dried?

Noted this. Shall check it out.

The portion size of the sabzi seems small when compared to 4 puris that goes with it.

There is "imli ki chutney" also. Imli (Tamarind), IMHO. And perhaps you can always ask for more (within limits).

How much do five puris and a big spoonful of sabzi cost at a railway station these days? In a cardboard box if you want it as a takeaway. It cost Rs 5 in 1995. I ate a lot of them.

HM - that’s so freaky! I literally logged on to post this:



First time I’ve had fish fingers and chips in a decade or more!
