Although the staple diet of the people mostly includes rice and lentils, the cuisine of Sikkim consists mainly of non-vegetarian dishes such as Phagshapa, a pork dish cooked sans radish & chillies. Thukpa and thentuk are two other dishes quite famous here, and of course, the infamous momos – an all-time favorite. Gundruk and sinki are two of the well-known dishes favored by the vegetarians. ‘Churpi’ is an impressionable pass time snack.
As diverse as its cuisine, the people are a mix as well. A mix of cultures coming together to become the people we meet while visiting Sikkim. Hindu temples co-exist wutg churches, mosques & gurudwaras. Friendly, hospitable and charming are the folks of this state, with a constant keen energry ti meet new people and make friends.
