An atmospheric combination of lakes and deserts, Rajasthan is the perfect place to experience exquisite restaurants, local delicacies and gastronomic delights. The cuisine been influenced by both the traditional warrior lifestyles of its inhabitants and the scarce availability of ingredients in this mostly arid region. Here are ten of our favourite restaurants in Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur that reflect Rajasthan’s beauty and culture.
At the breathtaking Raas Hotel, Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel, the terrace of Darikhana offers magnificent views of the Mehrangarh Fort, which glows pink in the day and is gloriously illuminated at night, providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic meal. A modern and contemporary space with a solid background of tradition, Darikhana serves fragrant dishes which sizzle with the aromas of hand-ground Old Delhi spices, specially selected from a 200-year old shop hidden in the warren of Old Delhi. With many of the ingredients sourced from local farmers, the seasonal vegetables, salads and herbs are home-grown in Raas’ own organic garden.
Jodhpur | Latitude
In the ever-changing city of Jodhpur, Latitude is a treat for the senses, as it fuses rich flavours and aromas with the sound of live cooking and artistic displays. The traditional design and stylish decor make Latitude a lively scene, always abuzz with the hum of conversation. Chic splashes of colour, trendy furnishings, an informal atmosphere and an artsy approach to food presentation set the tone. Food stations with chefs cooking right in front of the guests accompany the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets, where the Jodhpuri dahi kebab is an unmissable treat. This mix of energy and style makes Latitude one of the best places to sample Rajasthani favourites served with a modern twist, accompanied by live music and a sense of tradition.
