Shillong fosters the flavours, colours, elements and popular dishes of an authentic Meghalayan cuisine. Do try the local preparations such as Tungtab
which is a preparation of fermented dry fish, a wide variety of Momos, Tarumbai,
which are fermented beans as well as the very popular Dohneiiong,
a preparation of pork using local spices.
You must also indulge in Kyat
which is a beverage prepared from rice. A traditional and refreshing item is the Kwai
prepared from betel nuts. Other than these Shillong's restaurants have enough choices from Chinese, Indian and Tibetan cuisines.Read more about Cafes in Shillong
