There are many non-veg restaurants throughout Ooty that serve great food

Local food is a must-try if you want to taste the culture of that place. It boasts multiple local cuisines like Avial, bread and pastries, and my personal favorite Chicken Chettinad "Kozhi Varutharachathu".

Chicken Chettinad like many people will be your favorite if you like chicken especially spicy one, and if you happen to be a vegetarian then also you have many dishes made out of veggies like avial, a dish made by mixin several types of vegetables.

There are also many bakeries that make bread which has their own flavors. Try coconut barfi it's great.
