The first piece on the places to eat in Amritsar received a very good response. It triggered a thought. Why not have a list of places to eat for key touristy towns.  

I requested a cousin sister, who has lived in Jaipur for over thirty years, to help with a similar list. This one includes street food and restaurants but excludes high end restaurants. She has classified them into vegetarian, non-vegetarian, snacks, sweets, tea lovers, reputed old restaurants and places to shop.  Since she did not want her name to appear put mine. All credit to her, shortcomings are mine.
