While travelling around south Sikkim, I kept asking our driver about the local cuisine. He advised me to try Thukpa -- a famous noodle soup.

"He took us to a small restaurant in Jhorthang, south Sikkhim.

"Without thinking twice, we ordered for two Thukpas. When the soup arrived, we were amazed by the amount of soup in the bowl. Along with the huge portion, the soup was utterly delicious. The meat added in the soup was perfectly cooked.

"This meal is special to me because I finally managed to eat something other than Maggie and momos.

"Also, after the beef ban in Maharashtra, this was the first meal that had beef. The soup cost us just Rs 85."

Recalling another meal, which she had when travelling to Karnataka, Shareen Robin adds, "This is an authentic Dharwad thali I had at Hubli. It is one of the most delicious meals I have ever had. 

"It was simple yet finger-licking. I had it at a bhojanalaya in Hubli near the ST bus stand.  

"The thali had jolda roti, three sabzis, pickle and a lot of chutneys, along with a bowl of dahi (curd) to neutralise the spices."
