A gourmet’s delight, Mandap is famous for its homespun and authentic Gujarati cuisines.
If you love spice, head to Mahakali Sev Usal joint near Polo Ground for a true mouthwatering experience. And, while you are there, do drive down to Manmohan’s for the famous samosas and bhajiyas that even Sachin Tendulkar couldn’t resist. Another, street food favorite among the locals is Pyarelal’s bhel kachori. Further from Pyarelal’s kachori joint, towards Mandvi, is Lalakaka’s bhajiya outlet. Egg lovers haunt Raju’s Omelet Centre that has franchisees across the city. After feasting on spicy and hot fares, help yourself to Vadodara’s world-famous Duliram’s peda. These delicacies have long been satiating the cravings of the people of Vadodara and beyond. For savouries to relish or take back home, head on to Jagdish Farsans for Bhakharwadis and Solapuri Chevdo.
