Udaipur is home to scintillating scenery, some of the world’s best hotels, and a rich culture that keeps you mesmerized your entire life. Anything and everything in Udaipur is much talked about all over the world, but some of us are yet not familiar with the ‘dhabas’ (roadside restaurants generally situated on highways that serve local cuisine) situated in the vicinity of the city. And that’s why we were on the lookout for some worth visiting once, while you are in town. What are you even waiting for? Hop on your vehicles and head straight to one because the weather cannot get any better than this.
Charan Kamal Dhaba, N.H 8, Ahmedabad Highway
Situated approximately 15kms from the city, this pure vegetarian dhaba is as happening as it gets. Drop over some time and enjoy their mouth watering laccha parathas with paneer tikka masala, dal fry and relive the experience of highways of Punjab. The owner Mr. Amritpal Singh Daurka is a jolly one and defines his Punjabi thali and cheese butter masala best in town. The average cost of dining for two people comes around ₹200-225/- and they operate till midnight. So now you know where to satisfy your midnight cravings that too at an affordable price. (Drive safe though!)
Harsh Jodhpur Restaurant, N.H 8, Opp. Lodha Filling Stn.
If you are a Rajasthani food buff and want to savor some delicacies then this is the place for you. Located 6km from the heart of the city, this pure veg spot serves appetizing stuffed capsicum, malai pyaaz and laccha paratha and are open till midnight. Some of the specialties include stuffed tomato, besan gatte ki sabzi and kadhi pakoda. It has one separate air conditioned room if need be and is low in your pocket with dining costs for two between ₹250-300/-
Khalsa Pure Veg, 837 – University Road
Tired of driving on the highways looking for dhabas? Don’t worry, we’ve got you sorted with this great place situated right in the city. Mr. Kartar Singh ji ( the owner who is as lovely as his food) boasts of best in town dal makhani, paneer tikka and kulche chole. They even home deliver food across the city and have recently started a tiffin service at a very reasonable price. Cost of dining here would be approximately ₹300-350/- but it is worth spending every penny.
Bal Bal To, 100 ft. road, Opp. Connaught Place
We realized how many of you must’ve gotten bored with the pure vegetarian options so we thought of giving this recently opened place a try. This place has the set-up of a typical dhaba with a very interesting Mewari name which means ‘Hot-hot’, and they sure keep up with the name serving some amazing non-vegetarian dishes with specialties like Fish Lasuni, Tandoori Chicken, Mutton Masala, etc. They also serve vegetarian dishes and have a dedicated menu for diet-conscious people consisting of Lemon Chicken, Veg Saute, Lemon Fish, etc. The owner Mr. Prashant Tak tells us they too have a home delivery facility across town and that average food for two would cost around ₹300-350/-
Shreenath Kathiyawadi, N.H 8, Balicha Bypass
Is it even an authentic dhaba experience if we do not have to take out our cars/bikes to travel to the place? Situated 8kms away from the main city, Kathiwadi food aficionados have a great place to visit just out of town. They serve Kathiyawadi thali along with several other thali options like Punjabi, Gujarati, etc. The owner Mr. Ramesh Gurjar tells us they operate 24*7 throughout the year and serve the best kathiyawadi food anywhere around. The average cost of dining for two is approximately ₹250-300/-
