Jodhpur Food Trail for the Budget Traveler

| Today Headlines | World News

Although it is mainly known for the majestic Mehrangarh Fort and the opulent Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur is a gastronomic paradise.

No matter where you eat here, you can count on the quality and taste of street food in this walled city. However, a word of caution. The best food here is rich. Spicy or sweet, most are fried. Therefore, he doesn’t score too high on the health quotient. So try not to count calories if you really want to enjoy the delicacies Sun City has to offer.

Winter is the best time to visit Jodhpur. The weather is just perfect for strolling through the narrow lanes of the old town and stopping every now and then at unassuming and unassuming stalls to gorge on mouthwatering preparations.

Even if you don’t have the budget to splurge in Umaid Bhawan, you can still have a great time in Jodhpur while eating. This city makes delicious food possible without burning a hole in your pocket. In this food guide, we share with you several options for you to choose from when you are in the Blue City. We recommend them all with the hope that they add distinct flavors and aromas to your trip.

street food

Janta Sweet Home: It is the Jodhpur equivalent of the Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar of Jaipur. However, unlike LMB, it has maintained its economical price and food quality over the years and therefore is still extremely popular among locals. You can visit Janta for breakfast or lunch. Try their pyaaz ki kachori, chaach, best of Janta sandwich and mawa kachori.

Shahi Samosa: You can spot this store from afar, thanks to the constantly swelling crowd outside. Their samosas and mirchi badas are a specialty and stand out from the 20 other weird shops in Jodhpur that sell them as well.

Laxmi Tea Hotel: Near the clock tower it is a short distance from Shahi Samosa. You get great tea in several places in Jodhpur, but what this place serves is quite another thing. Until I visit here, Jaipur Literature Festival’s Pushkari Chai has been at the top of my list of must-see teas. But not anymore. You should also try their kesar doodh (saffron milk). On a cold winter night, after visiting the Mehrangarh, it looks like a warm, sweet and aromatic hug served in a khulhad.

Omlette Boutique at Hotel Garib: Right across from Laxmi Tea Hotel, they make omelets so well, Lonely Planet recommends them. We recommend their Michael Baba omelet (it’s a local favorite) and the kala ghoda masala soda.

Punjab Chic Inn (Image: Sneha Bengani)

Punjabi Chic Inn: Don’t be fooled by its ramshackle appearance, these are the peerless champions handing out chicken rolls like no one else is around. You will also be okay after eating their tikka chicken roll, angara chicken roll or desi katta roll.


Gypsy: The hype around Gypsy is not without reason. It’s always full of people who want to have a satisfying meal. Their veg thaali is a lavish affair with something for every palette. They offer unlimited portions so make sure you go on an empty stomach.

Kalinga: Close to Jodhpur station, their laal maans is an absolute delight. Top it off with their chai and you wouldn’t want anything more.

Kim Mohan’s restaurant (Image: Sandeep S)

Kim Mohan’s restaurant: Known for Korean cuisine, their bibimbap is a staple. It’s a serving of steaming rice with lots of sautéed vegetables and eggs.

Bhawani Dal Baati Churma: If you fancy dal baati churma, you must visit this modest restaurant in Sardarpura. Make sure to order some chaach to finish the meal.

Kerala hotel and fast food: If you want a break from the Rajsthani fare, this is the place for you. Although they also serve biryani, North Indian, and Chinese food, you have to try their kothu parottas, pepper chicken, and appam.

Having dinner

Sparrow’s Pizzeria: It is a gentle, fairytale and windy place to hang out with friends or spend an evening alone. Try their volcano pizza, luxury mutton, and Farmville delight. A pizza will do for two. Their generous portions will seduce you. However, they do not serve alcohol.

Blue Turban: Overlooking the Mehrangarh, it offers a breathtaking view of the gigantic fort. An economical alternative to Raas Haveli, it is an ideal place for a romantic dinner. Their kebab platter, laal maans and paneer do pyaza are delicious. They also serve alcohol.

Kebab Korner, Palais du lac Bal Samand: Formerly used to keep royal horses, it is now a property of Taj hotels. It has a private lake which only resident customers can access. Besides sumptuous food, they treat every table with a private bonfire, great service and a dreamy night out. It is tucked away in a quiet corner, you can even see the stars in the night sky. Try their gatta curry, lachha paranta, tandoori naan and laal maans. If you want to drink alcohol, stick with what you know and like. Skip their cocktails.

For gourmets

Motu Jalebiwala: Not everyone can make a 250g king-size jaleba that is more than enough for four. Motu Jalebiwala can. And they do such a good job of it. Their jalebis are hot, crisp and melt in your mouth.

Chaturbhuj Rameshchandra (Image: Sneha Bengani)

Chaturbhuj Rameshchandra: Their gulab jamuns may seem a bit undercooked, but they’re a delicacy. It’s hard to stop at just one. You must also try their mishri mawa.

Mishri Lal Mishthan Bhandar: Although they also serve fast food and South Indian food, their makhaniya lassi and rabri are their claim to fame. Their gajar halwa is also worth it.

Swadeshi Sweet Home, Mandore: Known for their besan ki chakki, they prepare it with pure desi ghee and generously use ground cardamom to season it. Do I have to say more?

Premium: If you want to buy something at home, take packages of mixed namkeen and chana jor garam from Chandra Vilas Namkeen. Opposite Janta Sweet Home they have an elaborate variety of namkeen that you can taste and choose from.
