For most of the foodie like us, there is no love more sincere than the love of food. And the Khasi people in Shillong definitely love their food.

The local food of Shillong consists of some exquisite dishes like
Jadoh (a mixture of rice and pork), Dohneiiong (pork mix with local spices), Tungtab (fermented dry fish) and Tarumbai (fermented beans). Kyat, the local brew made from rice, adds life to any meal. And since we are onto cuisines, how can we resist mentioning the legendary momos, dumplings or dim sums as they are called. Stuffed with cabbage, pork or chicken, these mouth watering delicacies will leave you craving for more. It's true, you can never have enough of them.

The Khasi people also have a tradition that they offer you
Kwai (betel nut) as a sign of welcome. These fragrant Kwai is a token of their love and affection. Enjoy fresh breath!

The best way to experience any culture is to experience their food. Developed over a period of time, their food is a combination of history, geography and lifestyle. Savor the flavors!
