Where and what I eat … Dehradun India

Where and what I eat … Dehradun India

I am staying at Osho Hotel, during my learning experience whilst in Dehradun – it is probably a 3 star Hotel, but like everything its not the surface that is important, its the people, the experiences and the relationships that we build.

What to eat … here at least are the do’s and don’ts for me ….

Much of your diet will be a personal preference … although I do like spicy and mild curries normally, due to my recent tummy upset here I have scaled that back dramatically – the staff at Capisco have been very helpful in looking after me, during this time.

I normally eat at two local restaurants, the one at the Osho Hotel where I am staying, which is called the Capisco – the Capisco offers a varied menu, Indian with some Chinese meals … meats are Chicken and Mutton (Goat) and the service is friendly – the Kalsang is across the road – the Kalsang , consists of two floors, a coffee shop downstairs, (Yes, cappuccinos) with great milk shakes and simple eats on the ground floor and the restaurant upstairs, which offers Tibetan, Indian, Chinese and Asia food .. at both places the food is great and the prices are reasonable … no wine or alcohol is available at either restaurant … both normally have Wi-fi.

Remember there is no beef available in India … going into a McDonalds here is somewhat confusing.

Here is the Photo of the exterior of the Capisco, the Osho Hotel Restaurant and the Kalsang … directly across the road.

Of course there are other places to eat, from the street food, to what one might call dives (quite good food – where the locals eat) to The President Hotel, but for me, I have come here to be way out of my comfort zone, to experience all aspects of India and life at ground level and not be in a cocoon of western “civilisation” … remember, Gandhi was asked when he arrived in London once “What do you think of civilisation” he responded .. “I think it would be a good idea!”
