Being a foodie, the very first thing that comes to my mind is the concern for food when travelling. Staying in Jaipur for about three years I came across some of the cafes that were really outstanding where I enjoyed my crazy outings. For that matter, at times I even felt that I am not in Jaipur as the interiors of the new age cafes and restaurants were completely different from what we imagine when thinking about Jaipur (palace windows, royal history, grand architecture, magnificent monuments). And this is the only reason why it used to leave me with just one word and i.e., WOW!
