Kanpur is a city on the verge of a crucial change, the kind of food culture that is prevalent in the city today is much more progressive than say- a couple years ago. The cafe culture of the city is quite strong and there are places that offer a plethora of cuisines to pick from, including Mexican, Italian, Japanese and others. Yet, not many places do justice to the food we order and we're often left wanting more than we though of.
Yet, there are only a handful of trusty places in the city that serve delicious grub and serve food as close to authentic as you can expect in the city. One such place is Busy Beans; with four extremely popular outlets in town, the place is a staple among our favourites.
The chill interiors and delicious grub
Busy Beans is known for its ambience, the place has a great vibe to it and falls right in the lap of the new-age "cafe interiors". As is the trend with most new places, the interiors here are a blend of industrial minimalism with its white exposed brick walls and over-hanging ceiling lights.
The furniture too is the modern reclaimed wood with its shabby-chic appearance and a dash of colour, making the interiors worthy of several Instagram pictures.
While the interiors are good and all, nothing compares to the delicious grub served here. We are addicted to the baked pasta dishes, the maggi, the sandwiches and the many shakes and beverages available here.
The baked mac & cheese here is something we cannot stop appreciating while the makhani sauce pasta quite innovative and flavoursome. The loaded fries, the sandwiches and even the momos are pretty great. We found ourselves returning to the place now and again just to get a taste of the addictive makhani pasta sauce and the butter chicken sandwich.
When in Kanpur and looking for delicious food, Busy Beans is where you need to be. Everything here, from the food to the ambience is as good as can be and we in Kanpur will never be able to have enough of the eatery.
