Thukpa is essentially a dish of Darjeeling but finds its roots in Tibetan cuisine. A hot-noodle soup, Thukpa comprises many veggies, some customary tinge of spices, and Hakka noodles. It is one of the most admired dishes within the town and is available at almost all the restaurants and roadside stalls. One can also find a much diverse variety of Thukpa noodles within the city too. Thupa originally is offered as a starter but can also be eaten as a wholesome meal itself, as it is delicious and healthy.
