Leh market nan

Leh-Ladakh awesome food bucket list (part 1)

This is part one of what you should be eating and trying out while in Ladakh. Food is an important part of travel and hence on our tlow trips food isn’t included. So you can explore the cuisine of your own choice. Listed below are a few food options. 

Aloo Paratha and Yogurt in Ladakh

A speciality in the Himalayan belt which can be. Easily found all over Ladakh. Aloo Paratha is the most simple and healthy breakfast meal you can have to start your day in Ladakh. Some are such big fans that they make it their staple breakfast all through their Ladakh road trip. 

Wazwan (mutton)

The meat eaters can’t miss out on a portion of Wazwan of the entire meat platter. It’s a must for anyone who calls themselves a meat lover. Roghan gosh, Gustaba and Rista are a few of the primary dishes to name that are a part of the Wazwan cuisine family. (Best place is a tiny outlet at the entrance of Leh market called Bilal Wazwan which is only from early evening around 5 pm. 


Another Himalayan flagship which everyone craves for but be sure from where you end up ordering your momos. Anywhere in Leh you will get the best momos while in other parts of Ladakh, the taste and freshness is subjective. A suggestion is to always stick to momos only in Leh.

Stone oven pizza 

After the road trip from around Nubra valley and Pangong Tso if your fed up of all the basic Indian food from the home stays and dhabas and are craving for something western then head for a pizza you won’t be dissatisfied since nearly every restaurant or cafe which is serving pizza makes handmade wood oven style pizzas.

Maggi and chai 

An all  time favourite which can’t be missed out while on a road trip around Ladakh. Even if Maggi isn’t something you usually eat when you travel around Ladakh and see everyone having one you will fall for the Maggi peer pressure. Remember to order a cup of hot chai to compliment the Maggi while you enjoy the view in Ladakh. 

English breakfast 

The cafes around the main market in Leh serve some of the best breakfast combos you can ask for in a place so remote. So if you’re bored of the routine that’s served in your guest house, hotel or homestay then take a morning walk and enter anyone which you feel like and have something more on the usual breakfast on holiday side. 

Night at Leh Ladakh

Homestay meal 

You can’t travel around Ladakh and not end up having a meal in a home stay. It’s one of the most memorable experiences that you can ever gain while on your travel to dine with a local family.  If not in Leh then at least in Nubra valley make sure you have a homestay meal. 

Dhaba Lunch 

While exploring Ladakh you’ll have to end up having lunch in one of the numerous dhabas (food stalls) along the way. Don’t always run to the one which is the most crowded rather opt for the one which has a washroom and has a clear and dirty setup. So you know your food will be delivered well to you.

Street Kebabs 

You’ll find numerous places in Leh where Kashmiri men are selling mutton and chicken kebabs grilled coal. Don’t worry about locating these guys the aroma of the kebabs will lead you to the best. 

Noodle soup 

If you feel a bit unwell or are someone who likes soups then give the noodle soup aka Tukpa a try while in Leh. A single bowl of noodle soup is more than enough to fill your stomach. The best time to have Tukpa is for an early dinner.
