 3. Place: Himachal Rasoi                                            Food: Sidu/Babroo

Himchal Rasoi , 54, Middle Bazzar, Shimla

With so many international cuisine options in Shimla, It is hard to find  traditional Himachal food very easily. But, Google Virals had Himachal Rasoi, stored for you, the owner told us about his vision before opening this restaurant. It was about offering the local recipes for us to enjoy. Its is an authentic low ceiling loft space where they make you sit on floor level. Order Sidu Or Babroo, their traditional food. You also get various Talli’s as option too.


Sidu “Himachali dish” is one of the most loved dishes in Himachal mostly in Mandi, Kullu, Manali, Rohru and Shimla. It is just a kind of bread made from wheat flour with fillings. Normally, it is eaten or served with Desi Ghee “Clarified Butter”, Dal (Mainly Lentil Broth) or with Green Chutney (made from mint ‘Pudina’).


Babroo is like a Himachali variation of the popular kachoris. It is made by stuffing soaked and ground black gram daal paste to kneaded dough patties. These patties are then rolled and deep fried and served with tamarind chutney.

The prices are very kind on the pocket too. Do not trust the google maps, it not easy to get there with the roads they show. Just ask a local who will tell you exactly where it is.

4. Place: Nathuram Lachmann Dass                                Food: Doodh Jalebi

Nathuram Lachmann Das

At the end of the lower bazaar at the mall road is this mithai wala (sweet shop). They have this huge metal kadai where they boil milk, you can find lots of Jalebis being fried along it’s side. They start in the morning with almost 55 kgs of milk and mostly run out by 4-5 pm. In tall glass with hot milk they put some khurchan (layer of milk that thickens on top and sides of the utensil that they are boiling in) and they serve it with Jalebis. Not over sweet, they know just the right amount.  If you order something salty like samosas they serve you with finger-licking chutney(Indian sauce). The Doodh jalebi is best when eaten fresh which you can get when you drop there around breakfast. You can even call them to check what time they are making their next batch of Jalebi’s before making the 15 minute walk.

5. Place: Sagar Ratna                                                         Food: Uttappam

This restaurant can be a life saviour for vegetarian people visiting Shimla. Sagar Ratna has many chains all over India. South Indian food  here are soul touching, lip smacking and phenomenal. If you are really hungry after the Church Hill walk you should get down here relax and fill you tummy with Uttappams which they serve with lots of veggitables and onion on top. Crispy Dosas are tasty but very thin that might not fill you up so add on fresh Idli Wadas which they serve you with variety of chutneys. If you are a coffee addict order filter coffee which they also serve here.
