Taste the Himalayas
Welcome to Martam, a picturesque village nestled in the heart of East Sikkim, where not only nature’s beauty enchants but also a vibrant foodie culture awaits! Sikkim, a small Himalayan state in India, offers a unique blend of flavours and ingredients that make its cuisine truly remarkable…
Join us on a five-stop culinary journey through Martam as we explore the delightful Sikkimese cuisine and the gastronomic wonders it has to offer!
- Breakfast: A Healthy Start with Thukpa and Churpi – A day in Martam is often started with a warm and comforting bowl of Thukpa, a traditional Sikkimese noodle soup. This hearty dish, packed with vegetables, meat, or tofu, will energise you for the day ahead.
- Lunch: Exploring Sikkimese Thali – For a wholesome and authentic Sikkimese meal, opt for a traditional Thali. This platter usually includes steamed rice, dal (lentil soup), a variety of vegetable dishes, gundruk (fermented leafy greens), and pickles.
- Tea Break: Savouring Sikkim’s Tea Culture – Sikkim is renowned for its tea production, and a tea break is a must during your visit to Martam. Sample the famous Temi Tea, grown in the lush tea gardens of Sikkim.
- Dinner: Indulging in Gya-Thuk and Gundruk Khursani – For dinner, delve into the flavours of Gya-Thuk, a hearty Sikkimese noodle dish. Made with handmade flat noodles, meat (usually beef or pork), and vegetables, this dish is a local favourite.
- Sweet Endings: Trying Sel Roti and Chhang – Finish your culinary journey on a sweet note with Sel Roti, a traditional Sikkimese sweet treat. It is a deep-fried rice flour doughnut-like delicacy, often enjoyed with a cup of Chhang, a local millet-based alcoholic beverage.
From the comforting Thukpa to the flavoursome Gya-Thuk, each dish tells a story of Sikkim’s rich cultural heritage. So, as you explore Martam, don’t miss the opportunity to savour the gastronomic delights that this region has to offer.
