Food of West Sikkim

Sikkim is a subtle and natural blend of everything in and around. It gives birth to a unique culture which is colourful and twinkling and with which a huge part of the North-East is identified. The cuisine here follows pretty much the same pattern as it derives its flavors ingredients, styles and elements from Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India, together. Sikkim's Cuisine, hence, draws inspiration from all that's around and the numerous cultures and religions that it, itself fosters to give you a cuisine that is authentic and defining to the area.
While staple items of the cuisine are Momos, Thukpa and a local beer 'Chang', fermented foods are popular given the natural conditions. Rice is almost essential in each meal. Add to it a dash of authentic and splendid soups, pickles and handful of meat and vegetable delicacies and you get the colourful and tasteful cuisine of Sikkim.
