Best places for eating out in Jaipur
Getting married to someone from another state has a unique advantage – Great opportunity to explore a cuisine from another state, in detail! After getting married, besides finding a lovely wife, I also discovered another beauty worthy of (a lot of) love – Rajasthani food.
My discovery of food in Rajasthan has started in Jaipur but I have not restricted myself to Rajasthani cuisine only. This post will get updated as and when I keep discovering new places:
Chokhi Dhani – Your best bet at finding the most awesome Rajasthani food in Jaipur. The “Daal-Baati-Choorma” combination is what it is best known for. However, instead of daal, I enjoy the “Masala Baati” and “Gatte ki sabzi” more. There are plenty of other dishes served on the table and you can eat as much as you can. Try out everything, because, quite frankly, it’s unbeatable.
Anokhi – Like the name suggests, it’s a fascinating small cafe at Prithviraj Square, Jaipur. You will find fancy new dishes which you have never seen or tasted before. Definitely worth trying out!
Indian Spice – Average food but amazingly cheap, given that it’s a good fine dine restaurant. I went in a group of 11, ordered vegetarian food and ate to my heart’s content. The total bill? Rs. 2000.
Kanha sweets – Nice sweet shop near Gaurav Towers, where you can try chaat, snacks and a few bakery items like cakes and biscuits. The menu card design and dishes looks remarkably similar to Haldirams! Cheats!
Lassiwala – Very popular lassi outlet in this area. There are a few copy-cats nearby so make sure you go to the one with the black colored board. There’s a nice ice-cream parlor right across the road.
Lakshmi Misthan Bhandar (LMB) – The choice of tourists to buy “ghevar”, mawa-kachori and other sweets since many many years. Even though this place always remains jam packed, I have heard that it’s no longer as popular among locals as it used to be earlier.
Rawat Mishtan Bhandar – This is the new sweet shop the locals prefer. I have compared the “mawa-kachori” between Rawat and LMB and Rawat’s is definitely the winner.
Talk Of The Town – Seems to be a popular choice for economical non-vegetarian food.
Saras Milk Parlors – These are present all over Jaipur and seem to be a popular place to have a quick glass of cold coffee, flavored milk etc. in the hot weather of Jaipur.
