Mishrilal is an institution in Jodhpur, and the crowds outside are a testament to its popularity among locals. Located in the Sardar Bazaar area, it is extremely crowded after 12pm, so be sure to get there early. Grab piping hot pyaaz kachori (a fried preparation of flour bread stuffed with onions) or the large mirchi pakoras (green chilli peppers stuffed with potato filling and fried coated in batter) and wash down the spiciness with their thick as a milkshake lassi (buttermilk) with a dollop of real cream on top.

If you’re in the mood for some pastries and snacks, try out 15 AD, located opposite the Gypsy in Sardarpura. The pastries are fresh and the taste is as good as anything you can get in Delhi or Mumbai. It is a perfect place for a mid-morning snack if you’re shopping in the market area of Jodhpur. The place has an old colonial feel, with glass panes set in wooden framed doors and display cases. It gets crowded in the evenings with groups of teenagers and families coming out for snacks like hot dogs, pizzas and sandwiches.
