Amazing scenes, limitless mountains, fantastic views with some beautiful waterfalls; this is how one can define Mussoorie. At a height of almost 6170 ft., The Queen of Hill Stations has always been our favourite short trip destinations of all time. But for this time, we are exploring its food side. Best Places to Eat in Mussoorie.
To begin with, you should be starting no where except for the mall road. The famous mall road is the hill station famously famous. Finding unworldly peace between the hustle bustle of shops, eateries and throngs of tourists is nothing like anything. There is food for every palate – from vendors that line the streets selling the quintessential golden corn to authentic Tibetan restaurants and contemporary cafes.
If you’re a lover of landscapes visit the Gun Hill (the second highest peak in Mussoorie), Kempty and Bhatta Falls and the Mussoorie Lake. Head to the Tibetan Buddhist Temple in Happy Valley or St. Paul’s Church in Landour for a sense of solace.
With so many places to eat, deciding where to go first and to experience the best food at the hill station, take a look at the best places to eat in mussoorie.
Kalsang Friends Corner
It’s a two floor restaurant with more tables than it can take. You’ll need real muscle to push your way in. But once in, Kalsang with its red printed wallpaper, Tibetan prayer flags, Chinese ceiling lamps and red-uniformed staff will make you feel warm and welcomed. It is located at the Mall Road near State Bank on India. They offer both chinese and tibetan cuisine. It is famous for its dim sums and noodles.
Cafe By the Way
This wasn’t something that was part of our must-go-to-list and so we treat it as one of our prized discoveries. Cafe by the Way is artistic in such a way that doesn’t intimidate you. It’s got Polaroid cameras stacked to one side of the cafe, big leather couches on the other, the back seats of scooters as resting stools and wrought iron and wooden furniture in the centre. They’ve got a range of coffees and shakes, most of them under Rs.100.
Char Dukan, Lal Tibba
As the name suggests, Char Dukan is a row of four shops at Lal Tibba which is few kilometres ahead of main Landour. It’s nestled away from busy roads and swarming tourists. It is only a few minutes from the St.Paul church and has the most beautiful view of Mussoorie but it takes a really skilled driver to get you up there. A few things you should try at Char Dukan: omelettes, banana Nutella pancakes, cinnamon waffles, chocolate waffles, crisp French fries and cold coffee. They’ve also got pizzas and momos but those are just about average.
