Dominated by a variety of authentic Tibetan cuisine, dotted with bakeries selling indulges at minimal prices, a Lebanese surprise, a delicious dash of Italian food, a rather French brunch and a pampered North-Indian meal with Parathas and Tandoori delicacies are what make Mcleodganj an almost surprising paradise for those who live to eat. The almost staple influence of Tibetan cuisine over the food here will offer you a variety of Momos, Thukpa, Tingmo, Bakleb (a Tibetan version of 'Samosas'). Another speciality of this place is honey ginger lemon tea, which is a very refreshing drink. Do relish and maybe even take home treasures like lemon tarts, cakes, chocolate mousse and pancakes. Also, the city provides some of the finest and most delicious Italian delicacies. Other than these there are lots to savour from the typical North-Indian platters, Chinese, Japanese and continental cuisines available here.
