Meghalaya’s famous Khasi Mandarin variety of orange, also called ‘the pride of Meghalaya’ is amongst the 175 food items from India included in the world’s first food atlas which has been launched at www.tasteatlas.com.

The main idea of the atlas is to promote eating local culture and to inform tourists and food lovers about the local ingredients and traditional dishes from all around the world.

The atlas contains nearly 10,000 dishes, drinks, ingredients and food products from around the world. There are 367 restaurants across the country which is also part of this Atlas. Popular food from India that have made it to the list include Vada Pav, Idli, Chole Bhature, Hyderabadi Biryani, Pav Bhaji, Kachodi, Kheer, Pani Puri, Gulab Jamun, Masala Dosa and Butter Chicken, among several other favorite snacks and food items. 

The Khasi Mandarin is the only item food item from the north-eastern states to have made it to the select list. However, none of the restaurants in Meghalaya serving authentic food have made it to the recommendation list. Altogether, 367 authentic restaurants from across the country have been included.
