So having eggs on the street is a thing to do in Jodhpur made popular probably because the omelette shops have made it into several India travel guidebooks.
This includes Lonely Planet India, with an omelette shop being listed as one of the best places to eat in Jodhpur.
As a result, the pretty generic omelette shop that’s on the side of the street in a bustling part of Jodhpur is a place you’ll likely spot a good number of tourists.
And you can see what the hype is about during your visit to Jodhpur!
This isn’t something that you’ll have to go out of your way to go to.
Since it is in one of the main parts of Jodhpur, near the Sardar Market and Clock Tower, it’s a place that you can naturally go to when you just happen to be in the area.
But since it’s in a pretty convenient area, it can also be a good place to start your day with some eggs as your breakfast!
Then you can continue your day with more of the top tourist attractions in Jodhpur!
Where is the omelette shop located?
Of course you can look at a map of Jodhpur to find the famous place to have eggs.
But the visual can help too, so you’ll know exactly where to go!
Once you reach Jodhpur, you’ll probably come to know Sardar Market well.
And there’s the famous Mehrangarh Fort in the distance.
The Sardar Market area is not that big, so as you’re walking around, you’ll likely just eventually stumble across the omelette shop.
It’s right near a main gate and you’ll see a stack of egg cartons. (And probably tourists eating eggs.)
What can you get at the omelette shop?!
So as you can see, there’s a HUGE list of egg sandwiches that you can order:
- Masala cheese
- Masala butter
- Masala butter cheese
- Butter masala cheese
- Butter sweet
- Butter cheese sweet
- Ali Baba
You can also order your eggs scrambled, and you can order them with potato too.
And the vast majority of eggs on the menu cost under 70 rupees (US$1).
I think the one of the right here is the ali baba omelette.
Is it really the BEST OMELETTE EVER?!
Some of the 5-star reviews on tripadvisor almost seem fake, with things being said like it’s the “world’s best omelette.”
Well, there’s only one way to find out.
And that’s to try the among the most famous street food in Jodhpur for yourself. 😉
Is this street food safe?
Well, there are foreigners who will eat any street food in India and say it will only make your immune system stronger.
That’s not me.
I give that intro because I AM pretty obsessed with not getting sick in India, and despite that, I generally find eggs to be a pretty safe type of street food you can eat.
And I am not adventurous AT ALL when it comes to street food in India.
There was one trip to India that I basically lived off of eggs (and roti with butter) straight from the side of the road.
So if you are also one to be overly concerned about doing everything you can to TRY to not get sick in India (it’ll probably happen anyway), I would still say that you can give this omelette shop a try. I did.
Where to next after you eat your massive egg sandwich near Sardar Market?!
There are plenty of rickshaws right near by to take you anywhere you want to go next.
But from Sardar Market can also be a good place to attempt to find those famous blue streets of Jodhpur!
You can start to walk in the general direction of the famous Jodhpur fort, and hopefully along the way you will also end up walking through the blue streets!
And then you can explore the palace at the Mehrangarh Fort.
Then once you’ve finished up at the fort, you can head over to the Jodhpur stepwell.
If you’re lucky, you might see some kids jumping into the stepwell!
But even if there’s no spectacle, there a rooftop restaurant cafe right nearby, so that can also be a good way to end your day!
So, for your one day in Jodhpur:
- Omelette shop near Sardar Market
- Walk the blue streets of Jodhpur
- Explore the Mehrangarh Fort and royal palace
- Watch kids stepwell jumping from a rooftop cafe

How to book India train tickets online as a foreignerIf you don't want to go through the complicated process of setting up an IRCTC Indian railways account as a foreigner...
Then the most convenient way to buy train tickets online is through this booking website. I've used it, and it's super simple! You buy the ticket, and then show the electronic version on your phone once you're on the train. Compared to buying directly through an Indian ticket booking website (IRCTC account required) or directly at the train station in India, there is a small convenience fee, as well as a less flexible cancellation policy, though!
