If you ask anyone about the best food to eat in Bhairahawa, Peda from Pawan Misthan Bhandar is the one highly recommended. The city being closer to India and communities across the border have strong cultural and trade ties, the food is largely influenced by what we call Indian food. Pawan Misthan Bhandar is the popular restaurant that serves various sweets including their iconic popular Peda and other varieties of Indian vegetarian cuisines. The prices are very reasonable. You can see people waiting in the line to buy kgs of sweets – often as gift for friends and families.
I spent half a day in Bhairahawa while returning from Lumbini- birthplace of Gautam Buddha. Here are some of the foods that I had in the restaurant, and also brought few kgs of sweets back home!
