Eating in Udaipur- India

From Jaipur, it was a boring eight hour drive to Udaipur and the only stop we made was one bathroom break by the highway……..

Udaipur is known for its beautiful city palace by the lake.  I was a tad disappointed that this lake is man-made….  This is also where they filmed the James Bond movie, Octopussy.City Palace

Jag Mandir Palace

We wanted to find a place for dinner with a view found Upre, the rooftop restaurant of Lake Pichola Hotel.unobstructed view! We got there early to watch sunset!

mango lassi……

papadum (chips) and chutney…

garlic naan…..

At this point, I’ve forgotten what I’ve ordered….. but it should be more butter chicken and curry!

In Udaipur, we stayed at Trident again, and the service was superbe as well.

For breakfast, there’s a omelette station, buffet and made-to-order dishes. put together the most unhealthy cereal combination: flakes, nuts and chocolate!

chocolate- drizzled pancakes….

We also ate at the restaurant for dinner….

mango lassi…… this was the best ever because there’s herbs sprinkled on top… it looks good and tastes good also!

papadum (chips) and chutney…

garlic naan…. sooooooooo buttery and flavourful!

From top left clockwise: Chicken curry / gobhi adraki (cauliflower tossed with spices and ginger) / palak makkai (corn kernels and spinach cooked with cumin seeds and garlic)/ murgh tikka makhani (chicken in mild tomato gravy) …… delicious food even though it was spicy……

We ate at the hotel’s restaurant again the night we flew to Mumbai.  We were supposed to leave the hotel by 6pm but wanted to eat something before heading to the airport.  We wouldn’t be able to eat because lunch service ends at 3pm and dinner service begins at 7pm; however, the restaurant staff was nice enough to open for us at 5pm.  This was bend-over-backwards service!

Because they couldn’t make naan during off hours (I guess no one was manning the oven), they made paratha instead.  Paratha is another type of flatbread but it’s finished by shallow frying…

I was so impressed with our stays at Trident and would not hesitate to stay with them again!
