The food in Nepal

     I don’t have a photo of what just about every Nepali eats twice every day: dal bhat tarkari, which is rice, lentils and a usually non-soupy vegetable curry. I’m like that sometimes. And no photo of the oddly coupled “Hotel Sakura and German Bakery” and they may as well add “Obesity Consultant”.
     Nepal today is a far cry from the old days when you didn’t wait until you were hungry to go to restaurant because it took a millennium to get served. Nepal is a great place for foodies, though not compared to my next country.
     Can someone explain “chocolate for girls”?

     OK, I admit I patronized the Funky Salsa restaurant. I am ashamed.


     Big fan of these buffalo meat momos (dumplings), 50 rupees (65 US cents) on the street


     Alu paratha, a kind of stuffed potato pancake, 15 rupees (18 US cents), also from a street cart


     Lots of yak on the menu in Manang


     Tibetan bread (deep-fried dough, but a little denser)


     The world's saddest papaya tree


     Thenduk, a thick noodle soup, with a dog laying on the table in the hazy background

The food in Nepal — 7 Comments

  1. Nice collection,,, Yuk really its yuk. i like chocolate for girls, what a nice recommendations for the guys who took the ladies in that restaurant. All the restaurants seems digital with the old version of service!

  2. Sweet post! I’m so hungry right now…this isn’t helping! Ummm, dumplings. Thanks for the postcard too!

  3. Oh, I didn’t notice the catchphrases on the Facebook and Google restaurants. Those actually make it a little more clever. Cleverer?

  4. Looks like you’re being well fed…and on the cheap — just the way you like it. Good going, Kent!

  5. Eating in Nepal can be a boring experience ( too much “daal bhaat tharkari”) but in Kathmandu, Newari food is tasty. Both sophisticated and traditional.
