'Dal-baati'(dumplings with a filling, roasted among hot coals) and 'choorma'(dry, flaky, sweet crumb pudding) are the universal favourites. The non-vegetarian dishes include 'soola' or barbecued meats, marinated with a local vegetable. But it is the sweets that the Rajasthanis freak out on. Each part of the State has its own speciality - so Jodhpur and Jaisalmer are famous for their 'laddoos', Pushkar for its 'malpuas', Bikaner for its 'rasgullas', Udaipur for its 'dil jani', Jaipur for its 'mishri mawa' and 'ghevar', Ajmer for its 'sohan halwa'; and mouth watering 'jalebis' can be found in all cities. It is difficult to explain the merits of each of these sweets, so whichever city you are in just ask for the local speciality and enjoy it. Most hotels have excellent restaurants that serve a selection of Rajasthani dishes as well as international favourites.
Gypsy is one of the most popular restaurants in Jodhpur. Known for its trendy look (Jodhpur Standards) and large menu, Gypsy is a favourite among the young and old alike. The menu is 100% vegetarian but draws from a wide variety of cuisines. There is of course the standard, fast food, south indian, north indian, western stuff but in addition there are some interesting dishes like Vegetarian Tajine (Morroccan) and Haldi Mutter Sabzi (Rajasthani). The thali is huuuuge and one can suffice for two light eaters.
They also have a home delivery service but I cannot comment on speed and quality of service.
There are 2 branches :
PWD Colony, Jodhpur
Ph: 91-291-5103888 / 5105999
9th C Road, Sardarpura, Jodhpur
Ph: 91-291-2433288 / 2629201
Favorite Dish: The thali is wholesome, the food is tasty and the quantity is enough for 2 light eaters. It costs Rs. 70. The south indian stuff is also good enough. I tried the rawa masala dosa. The dosa was great but the masala (potatoes inside) were too oily. My wife tried the veg pizza and it was as good or bad as a pizza served in any other indian restaurant. The cheese burger was also ok.
In any town of Rajasthan
if you are going for dinner Please only go restaurants which serve you food cooked with mineral water
