Folks, winters are almost upon us and it is high time that we talk about our favourite places who know how to serve a pick-me-up meal. Though it is quite easy to stay warm during the winters, one often needs warmth on the inside, and that's exactly why we love Thukpas during the season.
Head over to any of these places and gulp down the best bowl of thukpa you've ever had. For the uninitiated, thukpas are basically a meal in a bowl, complete with loads of accoutrements that add to the flavour, a clear yet punchy broth and filling noodles. Least to say, the bowl is enough to warm not just the murky winters but your entire soul.
1. QD's, Satya Niketan
Winters call for long sleeve sweaters and curling up under blankets and no-one wants to get out of the comfort of their houses during the season. However, to grab a bowl of QD's Thukpa, we'll go out showered and out of our hobbit holes.
The delicious, light and warming broth is just about enough to make anyone a fan of the place. Add to that the amazing, slippery noodles and you get a meal that is all the more wholesome. If you're feeling a bit experimental, get a plate of Tandoori Momos and spice things up.
2. Nagaland's Kitchen, Green Park
This is one place in Delhi that has some of the most authentic Tibetan, Chinese and Naga food. The thukpa, along with a few other dishes is especially heartwarming, here.
These guys at Nagaland's Kitchen know how to serve up a mean dish and digging into their Thukpas is something akin to a pilgrimage during the winter season. For many, us included, the Dilli ki sardi is incomplete without a steaming bowlful.
3. Yeti, Hauz Khas
If you've been to Hauz Khas, then you've surely been to Yeti- Himalayan Kitchen. During the winters, the place has a rather ethereal vibe to it and looks like something right out of a fairy tale.
Meaty, warm and made with load of love, the thukpas served here are no different. The clear yet flavourful broth, paired with the seemingly never ending noodles is often just what you need to brighten up those murky winter afternoons.
4. Yo Tibet, Safdarjung
This is another one of those places that tops our list when it comes to winter eating joints. The place just has a warm vibe to it, which is one that we love during the winters.
Pair that with their amazing and unforgettable Thukpas, and you've got a place that will stick with you for days to come. The warmth of the bowl of goodness washes over you within no time, making Yo Tibet one of your favourite joints this winter.
5. Dilli Haat, INA
Who can say that they haven't been to Dilli Haat? The vibrant place, flush with cultures from all around the country is often our go to spot, but did you know that you can also find one of the best Thukpas in town here?
In the winter evenings, nothing soothes you better than a hot bowl of thukpa and that's just what you're getting here. Since it's all made with authenticity in mind, you know that you're getting the real deal.
For many, the winters are a favourite season. Everyone has their own little reason for finding winters amazing, for us winters mean that we can enjoy all the delicious hearty dishes we haven't had the chance to nosh on throughout the year. So, folks, head over to any one of these places and relish a heartwarming bowl of hot thukpa.
