THE HUNGRY BUDDHA
From the Himalayan range to the plains and jungles of the Terai, Nepal is a land of contrasts.
The country consists of many different ethnic groups, each with their own food specialties. Then there are cultural influences from India in the south and Tibet to the north. They all combine to produce a cuisine unlike anywhere else on earth.
At The Hungry Buddha, we bring you a range of Nepal’s most famous dishes appealing to every taste. Some are mild and subtle, others hot and spicy!
There are traditional Nepali dishes from the Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys, the Sherpa culture from Tibet, and some Indian curry favourites.
You might like to try Momos – the ever-popular steamed dumplings famous throughout the country, Khaja set which is popular Nepali snacks set. Or perhaps Nepal’s national dish, Nepali Thali (Daal Bhat) – a spectacular platter with a little bit of everything!
