Taste of India
Jogibara rd, 10am-11pm everyday. some say it's the best indian food in town, others find it mediocre, but it's certainly popular; this depends on whether you are lucky with your order: the best is absolutely fantastic, but sometimes the dishes are bland. the owner runs 2 day cooking courses from the restaurant, but they are not participatory. the cooking courses are similar to watching a cooking show, leaving one to write down the recipes as there are no reference materials handed out. she also owns a south indian restaurant on bhagsu rd, one of the last shops in mcleod on the way to bagsu, which serves simple but very tasty southern dishes.
Le Vrai CafÃ©
Jogibara rd, just above the chocolate log, and down the hill from the post office. this is the place to get european continental food and atmosphere. run by a franco-tibetan couple, expect top quality coffee, plenty of chess and a real locals' atmosphere. epitomises the trans-nationality of mcleod, to be celebrated and savoured.
