24 hours in Jaipur – Where and what to eat and drink

If you are in Jaipur for 24 hours here are some must eats and places to visit, ranging from street side, to dining like royalty.

On the way to Jaipur – Stop and have lunch at Samode Palace

If you are driving to Jaipur from Delhi, I highly recommend lunch at the 300 year old Samode Palace on the way, located just on the outskirts of Jaipur. It is an absolutely stunning Palace, now turned into a boutique hotel, and within its walls is a wonderland of beautifully decorated regal rooms with mirrored tiles, enchanting colours and insanely beautiful fittings.
The food is absolutely scrumptious!

Must try street food…Kachoris!


The special kachoris you find in Jaipur are absolutely drool-worthy. This crispy fried puffed-up snack is the favourite of many. Either it is stuffed with onion or lentil and both are equally delicious. I recommend the moong dal stuffed kachori with Tamarind Chutney from Laxmi Misthan Bhandar, a vegetarian restaurant in the Old City that’s been going strong since 1954.

Cafe with a view…

For a view of Jaipur’s most iconic landmark, head to The Tattoo Cafe & Lounge and take refuge from the heat with a cold juice or milkshake! They also serve delicious food and so it makes a fabulous lunch spot or snack spot during a day of sightseeing.

Dine like royalty at Suvarna Mahal, Rambagh Palace

Whilst at Rambagh Palace, nip into their Polo Bar for a nightcap or pre-dinner drink!
For drinks with a view of their beautiful gardens, their Verandah is also stunning!

A cooking demonstration at Ikaki Niwas

Ikaki Nivas

For a more interactive experience go for a cooking demonstration at Ikaki Niwas, a fabulous homestay in Jaipur, where you can learn how to make a traditional Rajasthani meal led by the lovely Chandrika. We learned how to make Rajasthani Papad Sabzi, Chapatis and a wheat flour Halwa for dessert.

You will also enjoy a sumptuous dinner and be able to mingle with the friendly host family that run the homestay.
