where to eat in mcleodganj

There used to be a Friend’s Corner
that served awesome momos
last time I was in Mcleodganj.

They were political with their
cups and plates and crossed out
“made in china” with bold red marks.

I thought it was revolutionary
and went looking for that corner
but that restaurant had closed down.

But mcleodganj would never run short of
a nice place to eat good Tibetan food.

For breakfast, we went to Cafe Tibet Cafe.
Their chicken thentuk was amazing and
I got to eat momos after a long
while so it was a win-win.

 

If you have walked to Bhagsu waterfall
and need a break, you can stop by Open heart cafe
for some fresh mango juice and a nice view of Mcleodganj.

 

Hills Book Cafe is a nice stop on the way back
(you need to eat some books too)
local-family run bookshop
so go support 🙂

 

Seven Hills of Do-Kkae-Bi is a nice cozy Korean restaurant.
Their portions are huge so don’t order too much
even if you are really hungry
coz I did that and eneded
wasting food.

 

 

 

Himachal State Museum -Simla

statemuseum3State museum’s in India are pretty standard
and this was no different .
There is the pre-history gallery
and the anthropology gallery
followed by mannequins
in traditional attires.

The exhibit does not do justice to the
rich culture and history of these places.

Often times, the information is also not updated
For instance the architectural and sculptural map of India
does not include any of the monuments from the Northeastern states.

It feels careless
museum after museum
we never update ourselves and
it spoils the museum-going experience…

It’s been two months since I moved to Shimla
and this place is teeming with colonial leftovers.

this post is an ode to some landmarks in Mall Road area…

Christ Church 1857

 

Old Railway Board Building 1896

 

Post Office 1910

 

Central Telegraph Office 1922

 

Indian CoffeeHouse 1957

But these are beautiful reminders
and Shimla has done well in preserving
and promoting these heritage buildings.
