After spending our evening tasting the street food at Chaat Gali of Agra, I and Anupam went back to the hotel and took some rest for a while. We again stepped out during the night for dinner. Anupam had already checked several restaurants and cafes, so I followed whatever he named. But at first, we decided to just stroll around and look for some nice place. The lane was full of several restaurants which not only had local but the foreign tourists as well who had come to visit Taj Mahal and other sites of Agra city. Since it was February end and had drizzled, the weather was a little cold. While taking a stroll around, I found a rooftop café that looked beautiful due to the lights and other decorative stuff it had put. It was Bambino Café of Agra.

It had been a long time since I hadn’t dined at any rooftop café in the night in a nice place. Bambino Café Agra appealed to me and we decided to go there. Bambino has a café and a rooftop restaurant where you can sit and dine. It’s simple yet amazing decoration caught my attention.
Tasting Shakshuka and Pita at Bambino Café Agra
I had not heard about shakshuka before but Anupam ordered it. Since it had egg and I am vegetarian, I didn’t taste it. He also ordered pita bread with shakshuka. I had heard of pita bread a lot of time, especially in Afghani cuisine where pita bread is served with hummus. The origin of shakshuka is disputed as per Wikipedia where it is mentioned that this dish was either originated in Yemen or in Maghreb or in Ottoman Empire.

I took a little longer to decide what to order for dinner. Bambino Café of Agra served both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options including Indian, Chinese, and some other famous cuisines as well. After going through the menu, again and again, I finally decided what I usually end up deciding when I get too confused or when I need a whole meal; I ordered one veg thali which had chapatti, daal, steamed rice, curd, and mix veg. We placed the ordered and waited for some time. There was no loo on the floor thus I had to go down and use the loo there.
The rooftop restaurant was nicely decorated with hanging lights, empty bottles, and lots of other things. The vibes of Bambino Café were mesmerizing enough and that’s what caught my attention at the first sight. When we entered here, I saw some foreign tourists sitting and having their meal. It took a little longer for the dinner to be served on our tables as we weren’t expecting this much delay in the service. Thus, we decided to click some photographs since the place looked nice for quick photos.

After waiting for a while, finally, the dinner was served. My vegetarian thali and shakshuka with pita bread for my friend. The meal was average. It didn’t speak the ambiance this café reflected. My veg thali was just an average meal from a regular dhaba and the same Anupam had told me. We were expecting something nicer and better. We finished dinner and came out. We again started randomly walking on the streets. We were looking for a nice place to have coffee and we found one.
