#3 Taste-Bud Treasures
If you are also like me who love to try all kinds of food then gulping food from Mizoram will be a challenge. The Mizos do not use too much of spices and hence their food is bland. A must have item is soup. Try the variety of foods in road side food stalls where you are able to taste authentic Mizo cuisine. Bai is a Mizo dish prepared by steaming vegetables plus teaming it up with spinach, bamboo shoot and pork. Among the drinks do not forget to taste Lubrusca grape wine.
