Rajasthan's culinary traditions are heavily influenced by its desert setting and lack of a variety of fresh vegetables and in some parts of the state, sweets open the meal. Food tends to be highly spiced, perhaps for preservation. Instead of the rice and vegetables that are popular in regions with more rainfall, Rajasthani cuisine includes a lot of lentils, millets, and corn.

Rainbow Restaurant27–28 Lal Ghat 946-063–1484
Popular with younger tourists and backpackers, this family-run restaurant is a great place for Lavazza coffee and superior juices—the menu has an incredibly long list of fresh fruit juices and “mocktails." Tandoori food is the favorite here—try the chicken palak (chicken cooked curry style in spinach sauce), served with high-quality basmati rice. Other stars of the menu are the butter chicken and the paneer masala. It's also a good spot from which to gaze over Lake Pichola and the Lake Palace as the sun goes down.
