10 Places in Walled City of Jaipur To Refresh Yourself with ‘Thanda’

The Jaipur city, as we know, houses an enormous amount of food joints. However there are certain food joints, which are not only the best when it comes to getting some relief in this scorching heat, but they also have a special place in our hearts as we have many memories attached to these places. Yes, we are talking about the age old ice cream parlours and famous kulfi shops in the walled city that have always been our go to place in summers ! Majority of these shops are decades old and are famous because they have been serving the same taste since years. They are known for literally serving happiness and smiles to people of all ages on sticks in terms of Kulfi – the traditional Indian ice cream and also adding a refreshing dose of juices, shakes and sharbats in our lives in the summer. So here is a list of ‘Thanda’ in Walled City, which you must visit as soon as you finish reading this.

1.) Guddu ice cream parlour

This shop on the corner of the street has been serving Jaipurites for four decades now. Even if you go here in the winter months the number of customers will be the same at the original ice cream parlour of the city.

Venue: Shop 88A, near Ajmeri gate, Nehru bazaar, Yadgar gali, MI road

IMG_4501

2.) Gulnar

Before all these juice bars opened up in Jaipur this small shop in the heart of the walled city was the first where the people of Jaipur would go for refreshing juices. The shop has 4 more outlets sprawled in different areas. But the real magic is sitting in this small little shop in Kishanpole bazaar and sipping fresh juices which will definitely revitalize your long summer days.

Venue: Shop no 278, Kishanpole bazaarIMG_4561IMG_45443.) Kake ki dukan

This was the actual hangout place for all the young people in the walled city before restaurants and cafes took over. They serve mouth watering “hing ki kachori” which is definitely spicy. To balance out the spicie, the cooling milk rose is the perfect complement here.

Venue: Nehru bazaarIMG_4816IMG_48114.) Lassiwala

There are 2-3 Lassiwalas on MI road itself, but this is the original lassiwala which was established in 1944. Even though one glass of this lassi is quite filling you will be asking for more of this sweet curd based drink. Famous among tourists as well you will never find this shop empty.

Venue: Shop no.312, MI roadIMG_4937IMG_4955

5.) Mahaveer rabri bhandar

One of the oldest places in Jaipur this rabri bhandar is famous not only for its rabri but also for a range of other sweets. You can also skip your dinner and also try the aloo pyaaz ki sabzi with bejad ki roti here.

Venue: Near Goaplpura puliya, opposite HP petrol pump, Tonk road.IMG_4978IMG_49796.) New Dilbahar sharbat

Established in 1949, this shop in Choti Chaupar serves a variety of sharbats along with Rajasthani staple snacks like kachori and mirchi vada.  It might have been through a little rough patch because of the construction of metro but it does not affect the taste of the sharbats here.

Venue: 379, Choti ChauparIMG_4725

IMG_47227.) Original Ramchandra kulfi bhandar

This shop has been bringing smile on the faces of Jaipurites for 17 years now. The kesar pista kulfi here is probably the best you can find in the city. To comply with the growing demands of different shakes, they have updated their menu and now are also serving oreo shake. Go on an empty stomach here because the list of things that you should try here is long, including the faluda and papaya shake.

Venue: 222, Badi Chaupadh, near Hawa Mahal, Tripoliya bazaarIMG_4710IMG_4715IMG_46408.) Pandit kulfi

Even though this shop is now nearly 40 years old they are trying to improvise traditional flavors.  Pandit kulfi is the perfect example of an old place attempting out new things with kulfi flavours like paan and mango.

Venue: 110-111, Hawa Mahal roadIMG_4609IMG_4617IMG_46049.) Panna lal kulfi wale

This little green colored shop is famous for its matka kulfi and varieties of rabri. What will definitely catch your attention here is the eccentric names of dishes like “shahi rabri” and “baadshahi rabri”!

Venue: 1242, Gopal Ji ka rasta, Johri bazaarIMG_4983IMG_4999IMG_447210.) Ramchandra kulfi bhandhar

Another Ramchandra kulfi bhandhar on the list, this one is a kiosk near Ajmeri gate. The small size of this place doesn’t compromise at all with the quality and taste of the kulfis served here. If you stay far from the walled city you can also take dabas of this famous kulfi home and return them later. 🙂

Venue: Ajmer RoadIMG_4571IMG_4588

Now that you have the list, get ready to go and enjoy some amazing summer delicacies. 🙂

Home Cafe by Mr. Beans – The pioneer of cafe culture in Jaipur City

If we rewind the timeline of Jaipur almost 13 years back, we will find that the pink city has already had a rendezvous with its first café, Mr. Beans. No doubt that in a very short while, Mr. Beans became the most famous place for young generation to hang out with friends while munching on their favorite snacks and having great coffee. Fast Forward to 2017 Mr. Beans has converted itself into Home Café by Mr. Beans, a full-fledged diner where along with an amazing Tea Parlor and mouth watering snacks you can also have a full meal if you choose to.

Very recently Home Café by Mr. Beans introduced a winter menu to their list and Jaipur Beat got a chance to be a part of the tasting session for the same. Now we couldn’t be happier as we at Jaipur Beat are big foodies however we got even happier once we reached Home Café and saw the menu, as some of the most delicious dishes were mentioned on the menu and we couldn’t just wait for it to start.

As if somebody just heard our tummies talking, we were immediately served with very delicious carrot and ginger soup and what next the appetizer did its job and we became hungrier to binge on all the delicacies that were coming our way.

soup

Among the starters we were served with amazing Gouda Chilli Jam Crostini, Grilled Chicken Sausages, the oh so delicious Baked brie Parcel and truffle wedges. Winters or no winters, we could munch on these amazing dishes in every whether.

brie

The starters were then followed by scrumptious main course. Now, there are only two moments when your heart skips a beat one is when you see pizza coming your way and second is when you see pizza coming your way…we mean nothing else can ever make you feel so happy then Pizza. In our case, Pizza is Bae, stands true. So, when the classic Pizza Margherita was served, everybody had their eyes on it and we bet you that Home Café by Mr. Beans is one of the finest places to have it in the city. Along with it we got to taste Funghi & Cheese Ravioli, Herbed Risotto with Cherry Tomato and Basil, Grilled Rosemary & Thyme Chicken with Ramekin Eggs.

By the time we finished our main course everyone realized that we had eaten more than we could. Nobody seemed to regret that because as soon as we were asked for desserts everybody was ready to taste their Belgian Waffles served with honey and cream and not to forget the Dark Chocolate Cheesecake. Yes and unfortunately there was an end to eating after that but not before we tasted their amazing Organic rose Tea. The best end one could have ever imagined.

The recently opened Café and Bar, Jai’pour at Devraj Niwas is here to the rescue all pink city dwellers, who have long been looking out for the perfect place to spend their winter evenings.

As we entered this fascinating café, located on the rooftop of Forresta Kitchen & Bar, its ambiance left us charmed. The white seating covered in blue covers and cushions across the café were in a beautiful contrast with fresh bougainvillea plants. It will not be wrong to say that it was a well spent late evening under the starlit sky.

Another amazing element in their perfect setting was this beautiful, cosy and spacious enough to accommodate a whole gang swing that made all of us go crazy about this place. What better then swinging along with your friends while playing a tic tac toe game with a Vodka twist.

All we can say to those who wish to spend some quality evenings with friends and family, enjoying some mouth watering delicacies and having their favorite drinks; Jai’pour is the place to be. While binging on their wood burn pizza, kebab platter and delicious Tacos all we were thinking was when can we come back to visit this place again.

Get The True Mumbhai Feel In Jaipur !

Mumbai street food is famous not only in Maharashtra but throughout the country. Who doesn’t love a plate of hot and spicy Vada Pav along with some Cutting Chai ?? So put on your shoes and dash out of the door to reach Jaipur’s newly opened street eatery at Raja Park, ‘Mumbhai Express’.

IMG_5085

If you go there to satiate your chatpata pangs, you should definitely not miss out on Schezuan Bhajjia and Kanda Bhajjia which will remind you of the Bombay street culture. The fresh and soft Bhajjia  will be relish to your taste buds and Mumbhai Express’s idea to bring flavors of Bombay to the Jaipur Junta is not new but what makes them different from the rest is their ideology to keep the authentic taste of their dishes intact. Very few eateries are able to present the real flavors of such dishes.

IMG_5074

 

IMG_5080

Another interesting thing that would immediately appeal your eyes is the design of their logo. A huge and plump man with round eyes holding Vada Pav in one hand and Chai in the other. That man in their logo would clearly remind you of a desi, grumpy BHAI of Mumbai who loves eating. Sounds typical? Oh! you go there and see it.

IMG_5090

This street eatery near Panchwati Circle opens at 4:30 in the evening and runs till 10. Though this eatery is relatively new but has created a lot of buzz among Jaipurites using the power of social media. They plan to attract more and more people by marketing themselves via their Facebook page and Twitter Account. Now that is one thing every modern day restaurant or eatery is doing to become crowd-pleasing. Social Media has truly revolutionized the world.

IMG_5088

If you are looking to dig into some light and delectable Bombay street meal then head to Mumbhai Express and you would surely enjoy their food without burning a hole in your pocket.

Quench your thirst at Lassiwala

Ah! What if you been to Jaipur and not tasted its famous Lassi, Lassiwale ki Lassi. The Lassi wali ki shop at MI Road is the oldest and famous Lassi shops of the city.

“The Lassiwala”  Kishanlal Govind Narayan Agarwal  at Panch Batti Chowk, MI Road is a well known face here or say an institution in Jaipur. He starts churning out lassi early in morning by 8-9 a.m. It is advisable to get there early as every last glass is sold by 4-4:30p.m. at his place.

Its Lassi has both the taste and has the well balanced nutritional values. Since the decades Lassi wala has been able to make its place among the famous lassi shops of the city.

Whenever you are busy around MI Road and feel like sipping a refreshing drink, Lassi wale ki lassi shop is just the minutes away.

The preparation of Lassi is simple; it’s just the combination of milk, sugar, mawa, and baraf.

The lassi usually is served in earthen glasses called“kulhads” and indeed a  perfect refreshment during hot summer afternoon. There are some other ‘lassiwalas’ nearby, but real Lassi wala is only one.

It’s the one that says ‘Shop 312’
No other Lassi Wala has been able to churn out lassi the way he does with a thick layer of malai on top. There is no seating place so you have to have the Lassi while standing on the street.

Beleive me, if you can, go for a snooze after having one, it will be one of the best naps you will ever have in your life.

Must visit ‘Lassiwala‘  for amazing gastronomic experience!!
