Traditional Dining Fiesta
Known to be an amalgamation of all traditional delectable dishes, the Rajasthani thali is a full meal in itself. The best time to relish the thali is during the lunch so that you have enough time to digest it all till you are ready for dinner again.
Although the miniature version of all the culinary delights packed into one plate is served at many dining halls across Udaipur, a visit to a specialty thali joint or Krishna Dal Bati Restro would satisfy even the pickiest of foodies. Also, it is hard to miss the palatable dal bati churma which is the quintessential Rajasthani dish.
Dining By The Lake
Sitting by the lake, savouring a great meal while enjoying the lights shimmering on the water – exactly the things great holidays are made of. Needless to mention there are numerous restaurants in Udaipur offering the same. Heading to Aangan of The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur can be a dream come true for every foodie that happens to visit the Venice of the east. Apart from offering highly palatable food, the restaurant is also host to authentic traditional Rajasthani folk dance performances.
The famous “laal maans” of Rajasthan is served at its best at Aangan and as a foodie you must not miss the signature specialties that include barbecue and grilled dishes. If little booze is on your mind, you wouldn’t be disappointed as the restaurant also serves an exclusive selection of wines, beers, and cocktails.
Experiencing The Old-World Rajasthan
The culinary delights of Rajasthan are greatly influenced by Rajputs and Mughals who have ruled the place for ages.
