Afternoon time I along with mother passing by Ambedkar Circle, Mount Abu and a look at the restaurant â€“ Arbuda where there is no seat empty and many waiting outside for their turn to have lunch. We too were hungry. The curiosity to visit as per the rush. We too standing within the queue. As we were two only we were invited to have a seat much earlier. Rajma, Bundi Raita and Butter Roti â€“ requested from the Menu. Quick service and the food tasty. I remember the owner of the restaurant visited and had talks with mother about the quality of the food and service. Good â€“ she said.
Arbuda restaurant is as equal as any big town/city restaurant serving Rajasthani/Gujarati/Punjabi/South Indian/Chinese/Continental and many more dishes. Evern for breakfast it is one of the best restaurant. Once we had Banana Honey Porridge and another morning we had Cheese Garlic Toast.
Night hours and the rush as it is at Arbuda. Any other restaurant? â€“ A thought.
Let us try Gujarati khana (food). Hotel Gujarat is opposite Girlâ€™s School and a restaurant below. Again queue. Few minutes wait and availability of seats. We order Kadhi Khichidi. Service quick. Food tasty.
Morning hours and a visit to Shree Swaminarayan mandir. After prayers while walking downstairs we saw a canteen run by a family. A visit and request for Aalu Paratha and Dahi (curd). Homemade food almost. The best food I had at Mount Abu â€“ in short. The best maybe because I love homemade food and economical as well. But the only problem canteen is little far from Nakki Lake or Bus Depot. I wish I was staying at Shree Swaminarayan temple. They have accommodation facility. Next time maybe.
This time during visit to Mount Abu I most of the time preferred canteen food at Shree Swaminarayan temple. Aalu Paratha, Chas for breakfast, Unlimited Thali for Lunch or Dinner what to say fantastic. Even for train journey I requested canteen owner to pack dinner.
Cost of Aaloo Paratha – Rs. 30, Chas – Rs. 15, Tea – Rs. 15, Thali – Rs. 80. Economical for sure.
Timings: 7:00 am – 10:00 pm
Not to forget another great restaurant situated at Seth Shri Raghunath Das Parihar Inn. During our stay we had Palak Paneer and Aaloo Chola with Butter Tandori Roti for lunch, Cheese and Vegetable Cutlets as an evening snacks.
