There are numerous places to eat in Srinagar, many of which serve Kashmiri food. Some must try dishes include rogan-gosht (meat cooked in red gravy), tabakmaaz (deep fried lamb ribs) and gushtaba (meat balls cooked in yoghurt). Some of the better places to eat can be found on streets along Dal Lake and in Lal Chowk, as well as in upmarket hotels like Vivanta by Taj - Dal View, Srinagar. There are not a lot of bars in Srinagar, though there are quite a few tea shops that offer kahwah (green tea) and namkeen chai (pink tea).Shopping
Srinagar is known for its leather products, papiermaché, chainstitch carpets and cashmere shawls. The best place to shop for these products is Lal Chowk Ghantaghar, as it is substantially cheaper than other places. The Sunday Market is another great option.
