You have to love Manvaar. No really, you do. The food is unbelievable, but more than that, it’s unique – even in the curry-loving town that is Dubai. The menu is nearly exclusively Rajasthani fare. Sure, you can order boringly safe staples if you want, but that defeats the purpose of the place. You’re encouraged (even enticed) to experiment (doing so pays off, we promise). Standout dishes include dahl bati churma, a tactile rendition of the standard lentil dish that includes toasty wheat dumplings (tearing them apart with your hands is smiled upon). While you’re at it, scoop up some sweet yet sassy, lemon-based chicken achari. The decor – dark and richly embroidered – only adds to the place’s charm.
