The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Mcleodganj is the Tibetan culture. The second thing is the food. The Tibetan community has a rich culinary heritage, and that is evident in the cafes and restaurants that dot the town. One such place is Tibet Kitchen, a cozy little cafe pinpointed on the main Mcleod square that serves up traditional Tibetan food.
This three-story establishment is almost always full thanks to the authentic Tibetan cuisine they serve. Basically, the food served here is a fusion of North Indian, Tibetan cuisines, Bhutanese as well as Thai. With a menu that changes with the seasons, the Kitchen is a great place to dine when you want to eat something different but want to stay within the confines of a traditional restaurant. There is also a mix of traditional Tibetan and Bhutanese food available such as thentuk, Ema Datschi (Bhutan’s national dish), shepta (roasted lamb), gundruk sadeko (spinach with spices), shabalay (fried meat pie), butter fried beans, and steamed/fried momos.
The interiors are tastefully done with opulent furniture and wooden work, making the place a great place to unwind after a tiring day. Despite the relatively low prices, the quality of the food is exceptional, the portions are generous, and the prices are very reasonable. Speaking of the service here, it is exceptionally warm and friendly. This Kitchen in Mcleodganj is slowly but surely becoming one of the most talked about restaurants in Mcleodganj. A pleasant experience, all in all. It’s open between 9 AM to 9:30 PM. Pay a quick visit!
