Located at the heart of Landour, Mussoorie, Char Dukan is a cluster of four shops. It is one of the places that has earned a respectable spot in the must-visit list of destinations in Mussoorie and should be on your list as well. Want to know why? Read on.
FOOD THAT DOESN’T PINCH YOUR POCKETS
Char Dukan is famous for its scrumptious food and mind-devouring beverages at extremely affordable prices. The food includes, but is not limited to Maggi, pakodas, omelette, sandwiches, waffles, momos, and coffee. It also boasts of different varieties of flavoured tea and stuffed parathas to please everyone’s taste buds simultaneously. Although the menus of all the shops are identical to a large extent, Tip Top Tea Stall offers the best pancakes that one can ever have. Located right next to the St. Paul’s Church, this shop serves pancakes coupled with the maple syrup which taste heavenly.
SHOP WITH A VIEW
Char Dukan not only provides a great medium to satiate your hankering for delicious food but also for gorgeous views. Benches located outside the shops are the only available form of accommodation. The cool breeze adds to the ephemeral but incredible experience of eating hot food with spectacular views of grand trees on the hilltops, snow-covered mountains in the distance and the clouds resembling cotton balls adorning the bright, blue skies.
CHERRY ON THE TOP
Tip Top Tea Stall is a favourite haunt of renowned personalities like Sachin Tendalkur, Sanjeev Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Arshad Warsi etc. The owner has captured these memorable visits and conspicuously displayed them at the entrance of the shop.
THE APEX OF MUSSOORIE
You can take a stroll to Lal Tibba, the highest point in Mussoorie, along the road that leads back to the church, all the while enjoying the breath-taking views and letting the breeze caress your body. If fortune favours you, you might as well live through the beauty of the winter line which produces a dazzling orange hue in the otherwise bluish-grey evening sky.
To be enamoured with this destination in its entirety is inevitable. It’s time you experience it for yourself.
Word to the wise: Take a walk before you eat! The delicious food makes it impossible for you to keep track of the quantity you eat, thus making it difficult to walk.
