I will simply post the pics…

When I would ask what is the local dish here, I would always get this reply: Dalbhat! So I had dalbhat, many times...

Momos!

Momos! These dumplings came with various stuffing; veggies, egg, chicken… Was nice with chilli sauce.

Cornbread... wasn't a fan of that. Was too dry. Needed an accompaniment...

Egg curry. This was good! Specially after a long day of walking uphill!

More dal bhat. The soup always varied a bit. Sometimes green lentils, sometimes with beans. So did the veggies, spinach, potato... This was also good after a long day.

Gurung Bread. Loved this! Was freshly made and is supposed to be fried but was not really heavy. Or maybe I was just really hungry....

Had this at a lovely restaurant in Thamel called Thamel House. When you walk in the peaceful atmosphere after the chaotic streets of Kathmandu, takes you by surprise.The dish on the right is Chatamari. And the bowl on the left contains roasted and marinated soybeans called Bhatmas Sandheko. The white stuff is called Chiura and is roasted rice beaten flat. The chatamari was absolutely delicious! I didn't like the other dish much.

When you walk in, the peaceful atmosphere after the chaotic streets of Kathmandu, takes you by surprise.The dish on the bottom right is Chatamari. And the bowl on the left contains roasted and marinated soybeans called Bhatmas Sandheko. The white stuff is called Chiura and is roasted rice beaten flat.
The chatamari was absolutely delicious! Would love to be able to cook that myself or find a place here that makes it. I didn’t like the other dish much.
