Have you heard of La-phing? It’s a preparation that involves soya keema, seasoning and chilli paste and rolled in a kind of starch (specifics are kept secret by the makers). Brace yourself to gorge on to some of the lip-smacking Tibetan food and more, this weekend, in the Capital.

One can taste some unique street food like Thupka; Lowa Khatsa, which is made with lungs and stomach done in delightful spices; Rhe-chotse or Mok-thuk — bite sized steamed momos floating in broth; spicy and juicy Devil momos and desserts.

A group of food lovers called Gurgaon Foodie,is organising this walk in the lanes of Majnu Ka Teela. One can taste some unique street food like Thupka; Lowa Khatsa, which is made with lungs and stomach done in delightful spices; Rhe-chotse or Mok-thuk — bite sized steamed momos floating in broth; spicy and juicy Devil momos and desserts. “This is the fourth time I am organising such walk. We will be hopping popular restaurants and eateries in Majnu ka Teela to taste Tibetan and other varieties of food,” says Shivendu Mittal, the organiser of the walk.

To make sure the food walk turns out to be a memorable experience for food lovers, Mittal has tried and tasted the food beforehand to handpick the very best that’s available at the eateries in the area . He says, “Taste is a subjective case, it can differ from person to person. To choose the best food items, I tasted the delicacies myself and also took inputs from other people.”

Though the walk offers non-vegetarian food mostly but the vegetarians can go for desserts and La-phing.

The assembly point for the walk is Vishwavidyalaya metro station and the organisers collect INR 500 per head. “The money is used to pay for the food items that the group eats as the walk progresses. Whatever is left after the trail is over, is redistributed among the group. More the number of people, the lesser is the money spent,” says Mittal.

So far, more than 50 people have registered for the walk which starts at 11 am. Join the group to satisfy your soupy, spicy cravings!
