It’s quite impossible to come to the north east and not enjoy the famous momos. Often served with a spicy sauce made with chillies and vinegar, these are found everywhere in Shillong. Locals and visitors love the pork and chicken momos but if you want to try them in a proper restaurant, then a good option would be to go to La Galerie at the posh Centre Point hotel. This is one of the restaurants in Shillong where you can enjoy Chinese and continental food. If you’re a vegetarian, you’re in luck as La Galerie has great vegetarian options as well.
If you’re a vegetarian or if you want traditional north Indian fare, then a good idea would be to check out some of the restaurants in Police Bazaar. Here, you can find the typical Indian dal, roti, paneer, chaats and curries. Some of the restaurants that serve both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options here include Hotel Centre Point, Madras Cafe, City Hut Dhaba and Café QZine.
If you like desserts, then do visit some of the cafes like Bread Cafe in Police Bazaar or Swish Cafe in Laitumkhrah. Little Chef Cafe in Laitumkhrah is also great for ice cream and warm brownies.
If your mouth is watering at the thought of eating in some of the best restaurants in Shillong, then do remember to visit the SOTC website and check out their deals and offers on holiday packages.
