If a visit to South India isn’t on the agenda this trip, make time to get a taste of the region at this iconic restaurant chain. First started in 1921 in the south, then expanded to New Delhi and beyond in 1979, the Dasaprakash restaurants have helped introduce authentic South Indian fare to everyone from Maharajas and Mahatma Gandhi to Jackie Kennedy. Order one of the thalis to try a selection of signature items like steamed idli dumplings, dosas (lentil pancakes), vada (lentil fritters) and sambar and rasam (spicy soups to be used as condiments.) A full à la carte menu features dishes from all over the country (including tandoori-baked breads and North Indian curries), as well as tasty sides like chili-honey potatoes. Dasaprakash restaurants and cafés in northern India include several spots in the Golden Triangle, including two locations in Agra, two in Jaipur, and one in Jodhpur.
