One of the wonderful things about Kashmir is the cuisine here. It is very different from what you would have come to expect in other parts of India, especially the North. Kashmiris use more meat and delicate flavours such as saffron in their cooking. If you’re thinking about what to eat in Kashmir, then do remember that their famed Wazwan meals are simply unmissable. You simply must try some of the local delicacies such as Gushtaba, Rista and Tabakmaaz. There are vegetarian dishes like the Dum Aloo, Nadir Yakhni and Haak which are a hit with the vegetarian travellers.
The restaurants here are very affordable and you will experience this even at some of the famous restaurants in Kashmir. You will be able to eat a delicious, hearty meal and not bust your wallet. While the local opinion remains divided as to the best restaurant in Kashmir, no matter where you eat, you will emerge feeling satisfied.
