Gangtok Trip – Food and the Rest!

I have written about the adventure, nature and culture part of my Gangtok trip so far. But in my opinion, what makes or breaks a vacation is the overall experience and a major sensory input to that experience is food! I had made up my mind about trying local food this time (a major decision considering how picky I am with food) and I was glad I did. The best part was breakfast. Sipping hot tea amidst cold mountains with a plate of momos in front of you!

The other was having ‘Pan fried noodles’, ‘Thukpa’ and another dish the name of which I can’t recall, after an exhausting but exciting trip to the zoo. But what made me want to write a whole different post about food was a cafe at MG marg. The decor and ambience were lovely, the food delicious and the hospitality wonderful. I would let the pictures do the talking for me for that place.

They had great ambience, food & a karaoke bar! The dessert that we ordered was horrible though 😦
