We arrived in Agra this afternoon following a drive from Orchha. After mulling the streets for something to eat, the most appealing lights shone from the three-story Pizza Hut a stone’s throw from our hotel.
We jumped at the opportunity, and it seems that all tourists in Agra had chosen to do the same. (We checked — all of the local “multi-cuisine” restaurants were empty, and the most desperate hosts offered us a 20 percent discount before even sitting down.) After being escorted to our table and given a fairly American-looking menu, we were pleased to find that Pizza Hut in India strangely resembles Pizza Hut in the U.S. — only classier. We resisted the temptation of their exotic “garden salad,” which consisted of lettuce, broccoli, canned corn, and pickled cucumbers.
