Open your days with the traditional masala chai, try Daal Baati for a filling lunch and have a rich dinner of Laal Maas and Bajre ki roti! Where do you get all this? Just make your way to the following places!

    When your stomach calls for Rajasthani cuisine, make your way to Desert Boy’s Dhani! Dive into local flavours and embark on a foodie adventure!

  • Vyas Meal Service

    How about eating at your grandmother’s for a change? A humble kitchen situated in the home of Mrs. Chandra Vyas, a meal here is not your usual eat at a restaurant, pay and leave routine.
