If you are a foodie, there is no better destination than India. No doubt, there are a few misconceptions, in the minds of tourists regarding the hygiene factor or even the spice quotient when it comes to the food options available in India, butall that is passé.

India is emerging as a very popular tourist destination with its wealth of incredible tourism hotspots.

While most tourists visit India to immerse themselves in the country’s architectural wonders, there are plenty of other reasons why you can visit India and one of them is –food tourism.

Get a feel of the rich cultural heritage and diversity of India by going on a food tasting spree across its various regions. As they say, food brings people together, and if you really want to understand a country, you must eat its food.

Here are 3 amazing reasons why you should treat India as a food lover’s dream:

  • Extraordinary Diversity in Food

India offers tourists a huge variety of food options to choose from. There is no single cuisine that defines Indian food.

For e.g., if you are traveling to Rajasthan to visit its wonderful forts and palaces, you could also taste the gastronomic delights of this western State! The delectable Rajasthani cuisine cannot be missed when you are traveling across Rajasthan.

On the other hand, if you are visiting God’s Own Country, Kerala, you will be surprised at the distinctive nature of the food choices available in the State. Each State has a different cuisine and the cuisine varies in each different part of the State.

  • Famous Restaurants to Satiate your Taste Buds

Each City in India has a collection of must-visit restaurants. Pick any City; whether it is a Metropolitan City, the State capital, or a smaller city, there is no dearth of restaurants that are known for the quality and deliciousness of their food.

Some specialize in regional Indian cuisine, while others have dishes from the length and breadth of India on their menu. In the latter, you get a taste of India visiting just one restaurant.

  • Food for Every Palate

There is something for everyone when it comes to Indian food. If you are supremely health conscious and don’t want to let yourself go while traveling, you can pick from the immense range of healthy food options available.

If you can eat only specific foods on account of your health condition or allergies, you can get food prepared as per your custom requirements. If you are following a certain diet like say, Keto, there will be restaurants that have Keto friendly options on their menu.

You really don’t have to worry.

The Wrap

If you are planning a trip to India, identify the places you want to visit, but also do some research on the kind of food available here, and what you would like to eat.  

There is no doubt that your research on Indian food options will leave you salivating. Your excitement of visiting India will double manifold. So what are you waiting for?

The gastronomic food adventure in India awaits!
