Most dishes include rice as the main grain, as Nagaland is primarily a rice-eating state. A majority of the population here is also fond of chillies, which is why they're generously infused in almost every food item here.
Also, being a dry state, it can be difficult to find alcohol in Nagaland. You can, however, get the local rice beer called Zutho at some eateries.
Popular restaurants: Hungers Heaven and Café Lil Star are popular hangout joints for youngsters in the area. Other popular multi-cuisine restaurants include Black & White, Eat and Fit, and Marigold Restaurant
