Which are the popular eating joints in Alchi?

Alchi doesn’t boast of big exclusive restaurants. Usually the resorts and hotels have an in house restaurant which are the best places to eat, most of them operating from singular safari tents. For example, the Inner circle restaurant in Zimskhang Holiday Home. You will easily get a variety of Indian and Chinese cuisine. Even Tandooris. The North Indian meals served here usually have a smoky flavour - a typical Ladakhi touch. If you are in need of a hot drink, most eateries have a long thermos tea maker at the entrance for visitors.

If you wish to try out the Ladakhi cuisine, you will find that it’s way different than a normal Indian affair, which is usually spicy. Up in these remote mountains and harsh climate, food is generally eaten for survival and not for taste. By that, we didn’t mean that that it’s bland and tasteless, but it will be different than what you are used to. And if you need it to be spicier, the cook will certainly oblige you. The combination of Ladakhi food and all the walking around that you’ll do is sure to bring a rosy glow to your face. You would love that, won’t you?

Apart from restaurants, you will find loads of dhabas or other nameless shanty structures (sometimes with questionable names like Dil dil cafe), which serve you piping hot meals at reasonable prices. Make sure you ask for authentic Ladakhi food or you will be handed the Indian and Continental menu. If nothing else, you are certain to find Maggi (an Indian brand of instant noodles) served in bowls in any restaurant.

Believe us, nothing is more heavenly than sitting with a steaming bowl of Maggi in the cold (better if it’s raining) and enjoying the natural splendour of this heritage village. Mango Slice (fruit drink) and the Sea buckthorn juice are also a local favourite.
