There is a restaurant in Delhi in the Hauz Khas area which is run by a Nepali guy and a Jaintia woman. Its called Yeti. And browsing through Zomato, I realised that they had Jadoh, Dohkhleh and Doh Nei iong in their menu. So for all those IMers who are in the national capital, and want to check out Khasi/Jaintia dishes, you can check out this place.
My mouth is already watering!!! I am a huge pork and beef lover and hope to taste as much as I can when I visit in June end! What about liquors? Are liquor shops available in the Meghalaya circuit tour region? Also is there any local liquor that we should try? Karikor, also kindly check my thread I posted today and help me out there with my itinerary :)
I am sure you will have a wonderful gastronomical trip. As for alcohol, you get the IMFL everywhere and rate is also lower than other parts of India as excise duty is also not very high. As for local alcohol, even though it is illegal moonshine, it is available from some sources. Also the Khasis are one of the few hill tribes who not only drink fermented beer like rice, but also prepare distilled spirits. The local distilled spirit is pretty strong. They should complement well with your non veg cravings.
