So one of our Zoinkers! visited the beautiful city of Leh recently and had a few foodie pictures to share. According to her, Leh (located in the state of Jammu & Kashmir) is not one of the strongest foodie places in the country for gourmands, but due to its picturesque view and landscape, is a must visit.
The view of Leh from ANY angle is simply breathtaking!
And while we were walking about, the delicious aroma of Aloo Tikki wafted through the air and caught our attention.
We managed to click something without letting our drool fog the camera lens.
And the long wait finally came to an end. Aloo Tikki and Chhole basted with mint and tamarind chutney. Yum!
And also indulged our sweet tooth with some de-lish garama garam Gulab Jamun.
And then snuck back for a crispy Dosa.
A visit to Leh without a visit to a local Tibetan restaurant is just not done.
A bowl of hot, steaming Thukpa. We found this okay, and also noticed that most of the dishes here had way too much soya sauce in them.
No, they’re not all the same. Each one has a different level of spice in them.
Jalebis occupy a special place in our hearts and their glass shelves.
These Mutton Momos were really good. They were from a small restaurant called Tibetan Corner.
Now this, was some good Thukpa. Some veggies, delicious soup, noodles and Momos. Quite a filling dish, and this was only a Half Bowl, priced at Rs. 80.
This is nothing but a bowl of mutton broth, which is constantly stewing in the kitchen. Perfectly flavoured and comforting.
Half Plate of Lamb Chowmein priced at Rs.40
This amazing chutney with their guarded secret ingredient was spicy, packed with a hundred flavours and brought every dish to life.
The kitchen team behind the awesome food at Tibetan Corner.
We also took a walk along the market picking up nuts, figs and the like.
And there are a plethora of options to choose from. You would have to bargain a lot with many sellers, if you’re not a local.
And then we stopped for another plate of Momos. The appetite is never satiated. Sigh.
Rinchen Cafeteria is located in Khardungla pass, the highest motorable pass in the world at 18,380 ft, making it the highest cafeteria in the world.
Where they had a fun Maggi story that was very enticing.
So we were enticed and tried a bowl of hot, yummy, the most tasty Maggi at the highest cafeteria in the world!
And also learnt about the benefits of black tea.
As well as the Siachen Glacier, which we thought all of our Zoinkers! should know about.
And this is us signing off with a last shot of the breathtaking view from the highest cafeteria in the world. Enjoy!
