The variety that Aizwal's cuisine fosters is almost surprising given the limited number of eating joints. One finds here Continental, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese as well as the subtle and zesty local cuisines. While in Aizawl one must savor the flattering variety of Momos found here.
The local cuisine includes Bai which is a preparation of pork and vegetables such as bamboo shoots, Sawhchiar which is made of rice and cooked with pork or chicken, Chhangban which is boiled rice dough and much more to relish. Mizoram is a dry state, so you wouldn't find any alcoholic beverages here except for the 'Zawlaidi' which is a local grape wine and contains roughly 14% alcohol.
