SRINAGAR – The love that we all share is our love for food. While each of us may have our own unique reasons to travel, it turns out that 67 per cent of people in India pick a place for the local food choices it has, as per survey con­ducted by Booking.com, a leading travel site.

As per a research released under the name ‘Taste of Travel’, about 49 per cent of Indian travellers are planning to take a dedicated food tourism trip in 2018. The findings aren’t surprising given that good food during travel is always something that doubles the joy of travel. With Indian cities like Kolkatta, New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Jaipur leading as top food destinations in India, India seems to be attracting more and more food lovers given its huge diversity in food and the amazing street food culture.

Although Kashmir has been a favourite among travellers for its picturesque valleys, lush green meadows and refreshing climate, the food of the place has largely remained unexplored expect the Wazwan, a feast served in Kashmir weddings. This is probably due to the lack of knowledge about the traditional local cuisine as well as the non-availability of information about which food places one needs to check out while in Kashmir. Kolkata has it’s rasgullas, and the mishti dahi is high on popularity for its delicious flavour.

Travelling For Food

People travel to Kolkata for its Victorian gothic architecture, or even to witness the durga puja, but every traveller knows about Bengali cuisine. Which is why businesses in the city operate at the level of fulfilling every traveller’s culinary desires. Lucknow is known for it’s Awadhi history, but who doesn’t look forward to heading there for the kebabs and biryani? Amritsar is as picturesque a city as they come, but even before you enter the city, all highways are laced with dhabas that serve massively large parathas and lassis. No matter where one travels, it has become definitive that a city showcases its culinary culture with all its might, because the next generation of travellers is bold, opinionated and hungry!
