Food of Kohima

Kohima fosters both traditional Nagaland cuisines as well as a number of options for Continental and Chinese food and flattering choices for vegetarians as well. The local cuisine is dominated by spicy, colourful, delicious and a bit adventurous non-vegetarian preparations.
The state has a somewhat westernized eating style. Pork, beef, mutton, chicken and also lots of jungle animals are eaten here. Delicacies prepared with bamboo shoots, ginger, Naga King chilly are also found. Also, Nagaland is a dry state and hence you won't easily find beers and other alcoholic drinks. However, locally brewed Rice beer is available at places.
