Fodor's Expert Review Laxmi Misthan Bhandar
Known affectionately as LMB, Laxmi Misthan Bhandar is a sweet shop famous all over Rajasthan for its fresh and sumptuous sweets, including ghevar (a flour-based disc-shaped cake), mave ki kachori (a milk and raisin and nut-filled pastry), churma, pheeni and savory snacks like raj kachori and samosa, though the sugar-laden delicacies may be a bit too sweet for the average foreign visitor. LMB also has a famous but mildly shabby vegetarian restaurant adjoining the sweet shop, which serves a large selection of heavy-on-the-stomach Indian specialties and excellent rasmalai (milk-based sweet in a milky syrup). The shahi (royal) thali has an impressive 15 items and showcases authentic Rajasthani cuisine.
