Landour was once called the 'Little America of the Hills'. This small hill station in Uttarakhand, dotted with winding paths, pine trees and colourful birds, became a summer retreat for the British in the 1820s. The place at the altitude of 7,500 feet above the sea is uniquely cosmopolitan and, located in north India, has been home to various communities from around the world, as a result of which their food was an intermingling of European and American cuisines that gave it a distinct anglo-Indian aroma.
