If you wish to explore the culture of a place, the first thing you need to do is taste its traditional food. Like any other state, Rajasthan is a host of various beautiful and interesting restaurants whose foods tell the story of the state's rich past. These old establishments are the real jewels that have kept the traditions of Rajasthan alive and kicking through its dishes. Here, we are going to talk about some of those eateries.

Let’s begin with one of the oldest restaurants in the state's capital, Jaipur. Niro’s is known for its refreshing setting and crowd dominated by foreign tourists. Its most popular dish is gatte ki sabzi. Natraj is another famous eating house that’s economical too. The vegetarian thali of this restaurant is a must-try. If you are in Pink city and craving a traditionally made mutton dish, pay a visit to Handi. The place is known for its tender mutton cooked in handis with smoke. The dish is served with roomali roti. Another pocket-friendly destination is Surya Mahal. If you want to offer your tastebuds a tickle, your next-door should be Thali House. Its delectable dal baati churma definitely needs thumbs up. The best part is, the dish is served at a reasonable rate.

Those who do not find anything tasty unless that dish is spicy, should visit Spice Court situated on Jacob Road. Its junglee mass or the keema baati is a must-have. 

 Want to feel royalty and relish the traditional Rajasthani dishes? Choki Dhani located on the outskirts of Jaipur is what needs to be your next stop. Its huge thali comprises some of the most mouth-watering dishes that you must try at least once in life. 

For stuffing your tummy with delicious snacks, sweets, and vegetarian foods, The Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar in Johari Bazaar is the best place to go. Do not forget to order its kachoris and paneer ghevar. Another great place to try kachoris is the Rawat Mishthan Bhandar situated on Station Road. Opposite this eatery, you can see Kanji, a perfect eatery to gorge on laddoos and traditional snacks. 

It would be a sin (not literally) for hard-core non-vegetarians to not get to taste Suvarna Mehal’s smashing thali's belongings that includes everything you require to quench your thirst and satisfy your tastebuds. From vegetable kebabs and barbequed lamb in the appetizers to lal maas, and gatte among other dishes in the main course and scrumptious malpuas and rasmalai in the dessert, Suvarna Mahal serves the best of Rajasthan. 

Already drooling? Then, book your tickets and head towards these ultimate eateries.
