local delicacies

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/11

Apart from the traditional Tibetan food and beverage like the highland barley wine, pies and ghee tea, people in Nyingchi can also taste lots of local delicacies. As “the Jiangnan of Tibet” there grow a wide variety of fruits here: pear, peach, lemon, banana, watermelon, orange, pineapple and grapes among others.

Take the Luoba people as an example; they drink white and yellow wines. The yellow wine the locals’ favorite, is made from chicken feet grain and corn. After being distilled, it will become white wine. Their daily foodstuff is rice and corn pastes, vegetables, grilled meat and chili. On their dining table the food is divided on the average base by the hostess. The diner can get the food with their fingers directly from the container- the bamboo tube.

Additionally the most special Luoba dish is the grilled rat, which is for VIP guests only. In some remote parts of Nyingchi there live a few ethnic groups whose cuisines and dining customs are very well preserved. The Menba people use rice and barley pie as main course while the Luoba People eats handpicking rice. In east Tibet the grilled mountain rat is the best dish for guests that may scare away those from cities. Due to the humid climate, hot chili is a must on their dinner table.
