i always have a thing with indian food, has been having a crazy craving on them and whenever they are available i always have them. being in india is like being in that food heaven you dream of. every single day that we spend were such a culinary trip. we didn’t even had the time to take pictures of the food we are eating as we already munch them down. and they are too good so we completely forget about taking pictures. this post are the things that survive and all of them worth to remember.
our best luck in delhi were that our friends are all crazy foodie. so a culinary trip with them was such a bliss. for many, indian food are not for the weak stomach. but i guess in many typical asian countries, street food are always, and ALWAYS be the best experiences.
for me personally old delhi was such a blast. they have the amazing row of desert and the rows of tandoori chicken near the jama masjid was so inviting. daulat ki chaat is probably one of my favorite desert in the world. karim (a moslem restaurant) in old delhi was so worth remembering. we did try nagaland food too when we were in new delhi. it is somehow a bit similar with southeast asian cuisine. southern indian food in dilli haat where i went with nayana were so savory also. very close to our indonesian taste where they use coconut milk instead of yoghurt.
dharamsala food was a different change from all the spices we had in indian food. and suprisingly the italian food in dharamsala owned by tibetan are actually one of the best. i had the best things with all the desert both in delhi and dharamsala. since i love dim sum, i love the tibetan momos especially because they are much spicier. thukpa (tibetan soup noddles) remind me with bakmi jowo so much. anything chocolate, sweet and cakes in the local bakery worth every penny.
i would say, in india my spice craving and sweet tooth meet their match. for some of this food alone, i would definitely go back to india.
