Leh is a multicuisine city serving Indian, Tibetan, Chinese and even Korean. The cuisine here exhibits tints of these foreign influences. Visitors must try out the local dishes which almost define the cuisine here such as Thukpa
(noodle soup) Tsampa
, known in Ladakhi as Ngamphe (roasted barley flour)
, and Skyu
which is a heavy pasta dish with plenty of veggies as well as the very popular and delicious Momos
which are steamed dumplings stuffed with vegetables or meat.
Drinks include tea, coffee, beer and Chang
which is an alcoholic beverage drunk specially on festive occasions.
